TrueCar Jumps In IPO As Socal Tech Exits Continue

Santa Monica-based TrueCar, the online new car pricing and buying site, jumped in its IPO Friday morning, trading up 16 percent in early trading this morning. The company--the second technology company to have an IPO this year from Southern California--was trading around $10.47 per share, up around 16 percent over its pricing at $9.00 per share late last night.
