Carbonite IPO raises over $62 million

Cloud backup bucks the bucking market

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Cloud IT–anything is sexy, and cloud backup–service company Carbonite has proved it by raising $62.5m in a market that's supposed to be hostile to IPOs right now.

The company originally wanted to raise $100m or more, and had to scale back its desired stock price from the $15 to $17 per share area to a much more modest $10. Still, $62.5m is not bad – not in today's climate – and it may be that Carbonite barely scraped through an IPO door that's now swinging shut.

Carbonite can use the cash to build out its cloud backup data centre infrastructure and fund sales and marketing programmes.

The company has consumed $67m in funding, so a mega-payout for their venture capitalist backers isn't going to happen. Carbonite now has to bulk up its customer base and move into profitability. ®
