The Plainview-based electronics maker Aeroflex Holding Corp., which went private less than three years ago, went public again Friday.

Listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol ARX, its initial public offering of 17.25 million shares opened slightly below its announced $13.50 price, but reached that amount at closing.

Reuters reported that shares of Aeroflex opened 6.1 percent below the $13.50 IPO price, then traded up in early afternoon but reversed course to close flat in their debut.
