Freshworks, a customer engagement software company, recently went public with an initial public offering (IPO) of Class A common stock at $36 a share, raising the price from $32 earlier this week in response to investor interest.
The technology unicorn’s IPO was listed on NASDAQ under the ticker FRSH, becoming the first publicly traded B2B software-as-a-service (SaaS) company on the stock market. The company plans to raise $1.02 billion in its IPO and sell 28.5 million shares by the end of the week at a valuation of $10 billion. Freshworks will allow underwriters to purchase additional shares at the IPO price.
