Updated 1:47 p.m. PT: We mixed up the roadshow and trading date. We apologize for the error.
Today Etsy revealed that it plans to price shares at between $14 and $16 when it starts trading on the NASDAQ.
In an official statement, Etsy says it aims to sell 16.7 million shares, raising somewhere between $233 million and $267 million in the process. Etsy originally aimed to raise around $100 million when it filed to go public on March 4.
Although Etsy’s provided us with this $14 to $16 price range, don’t be surprised if the final price shifts before the company actually starts trading.
Here’s Etsy’s announcement, in full:
