Healthcare information and services provider HealthPort Inc's bid for an initial public offering was withdrawn on Thursday morning before the markets opened, according to a source familiar with the deal.

No reason was given for the withdrawal.

The IPO would have offered 6 million new shares, which the company expected to price between $14 and $16 according to a regulatory filing. The stock was scheduled to debut on Thursday on the Nasdaq under the ticker HPRT.
