Marketo has followed through on its plans to file an initial public offering (IPO), a move which also pulled back the curtain on the company’s finances, including a high growth rate and big losses. The company plans to trade as “MKTO” on the Nasdaq. Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Credit Suisse are listed as leading the offering.
The S-1 registration statement provides a wealth of new information about Marketo’s business. Revenue for 2012 is reported at $58.4 million, an impressive 80% growth rate vs. 2011 although not quite the doubling that the company had forecast earlier, according to David M. Raab, Principal of Raab Associates.
