Yext will be the second enterprise company in the past week alone that will make its public debut tomorrow following this pricing. With Snaps IPO seen as successful, as well as tech IPOs in general looking good until now, it seems like Yext may be able to capitalize on the appetite for freshly-public tech corporations. The so-called IPO window, at least for now, appears to be open and now its a matter of figuring out the balance of ensuring a good pop for the company while not leaving too much coin on the table.
The company last-place said it would premium its furnish between $8.00 and $10.00 per share, offering 10.5 million shares( together with the option for underwriters to purchase an additional 1.6 million shares ).
