BlackLine files to raise $100 million in IPO

nasdaq


(Reuters) – Accounting software maker BlackLine filed for an initial public offering with U.S. securities regulators on Friday, looking to ride on the recent success of technology offerings in a relatively quiet year for IPOs.

Los Angeles-based BlackLine, founded in 2001 by Chief Executive Therese Tucker, counts Coca-Cola, Under Armour and Dow Chemical Co among its 1,500 customers.

Reuters reported last week that the company was preparing for an IPO that could value it at more than $1 billion.

Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Raymond James, William Blair and Baird are among the underwriters for the IPO, the company said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Demand for tech offerings has been robust, and on Friday shares of Nutanix, an enterprise data storage provider, more than doubled in their market debut.

Nutanix sold 14.87 million shares, more than the expected 14 million, and priced them above the anticipated range of $13 and $15.

BlackLine said it plans to list its shares on the Nasdaq under the symbol “BL”.

The IPO would raise up to $100 million, according to the filing.

The amount of money a company says it plans to raise in its first IPO filing is usually a placeholder.

Elon Musk says Tesla's new Semi trucks are BAMFs.

Yes, for those of you at home, that's the widely known acronym for "Bad Ass Mother F***er."

Musk playfully threw out the acronym as a "scientific term" Tesla's development team used as they designed the new big rigs. The name sounds ridiculous — but the specs, if they wind up being legit, are actually pretty impressive.

Musk claims the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just five seconds, well faster than traditional diesel trucks. That's the cab by itself or with an empty trailer loaded on. Read more...
