Dropbox aims to raise as much as $648 million United States in IPO

Share

A series of funding rounds had valued Dropbox at US$10 billion, but investment bankers were doubtful about matching that valuation.

The San Francisco, CA-based company plans to raise $612 million by offering 36 million shares (25% insider) at a price range of $16 to $18. On a fully diluted basis including stock options, the mid-range of the IPO price range gives the company a market capitalisation of around United States dollars 7.4 billion. Including restricted stock units, that range is $6.7 billion to $7.6 billion.

Day care owner drugged kids so she could go tanning
Little Giggles owner January Neatherlin was found guilty of drugging kids in her care so she could work out and get a tan. Officers watched as parents dropped off their children and then saw Neatherlin drive away hours later, authorities said.

Dropbox also agreed to sell $100 million in stock to Salesforce.com's venture capital arm in a private placement concurrent with the IPO, the filing shows. Last week, the companies announced a partnership to integrate and sell Salesforce's customer relationship management technology with Dropbox's storage and collaboration tools. Existing shareholders, including founders Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi, will offer another 9.2 million shares for sale, and the underwriters have an over-allotment option for 5.4 million more shares.

In the latest prospectus, the company sounded confident: "We believe the need for our platform will continue to grow as teams become more fluid and global, and content is increasingly fragmented across incompatible tools and devices".

Meanwhile, Dropbox said it now has 11 million paying users, which is far less than the 500 million registered users who access its services for free.

The company said it generates average revenue of $111.91 per paying user. In the same period, the company's net losses shrank to $112 million from $210 million.
