Storage upstart reveals IPO price range, hopes to raise $100m

All-flash and hybrid array startup Tintri has set out its IPO pricing terms, and they look quite modest.

With 8.7 million shares to be sold and priced between $10.50 and $12.50 each, it’s hoping to raise $100m. At the $11.50 mid-point in its stock price range, Silicon Valley-based Tintri would have a market capitalization of $389m.

Nimble, a company that was similar to Tintri when it IPO’d, priced its IPO stock of 9.7 million shares from $16.00 to $18.00 and was looking for a $1.2bn capitalization at the mid-point. That makes Tintri’s ambitions look lower key.

After its IPO, Nimble was bought by HPE, in March this year, for $1.2bn. ®
