Network18-backed TV and E-commerce company HomeShop18 has withdrawn its $75 million IPO on the New York Stock Exchange, around seven months after the initial application. HomeShop18 mentions that it is not proceeding with this offering since it is currently re-evaluating its capital raising strategy.
