·2 min read

Most Read from Bloomberg

The company, along with co-founder Sytse “Sid” Sijbrandij, sold 10.4 million shares Wednesday for $77 each after marketing them for $66 to $69, according to a statement. Gitlab on Tuesday had elevated the price target from an earlier range of $55 to $60.

At $77 a share, Gitlab has a market value of $ 11 billion based on the outstanding shares listed in its filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Accounting for employee stock options and restricted stock units, the company would have a fully diluted value of more than $12 billion.

Sijbrandij, the company’s chief executive officer, had planned to sell 1.98 million shares, which would be worth $152 million at the IPO price. Investors in the company include funds and affiliates of August Capital , Alphabet Inc.’s GV, Iconiq Capital and Khosla Ventures, according to the filings.

Gitlab provides collaboration tools used by software developers and competes with Microsoft Corp.’s Github. Goldman Sachs Group Inc., UBS Group AG, Siemens AG and ZipRecruiter Inc. are among its customers.

Remote-Only Company

Though incorporated in Delaware in 2014, GitLab operates as a remote-only company and doesn’t have a corporate office, according to its filings. Its 1,350 team members are located in more than 65 countries.

The company had a net loss of $69 million on revenue of $108 million for the six months ending July 31, according to its filings. That compared with a $44 million loss on $64 million in revenue during the same period the previous year.

Proceeds of the offering will be used for general corporate purposes and working capital, according to its filings. The main purpose of the listing is to provide a public market for its shares and to increase the visibility of the company, the company said in the prospectus.

The offering is being led by Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank of America Corp. The shares are expected to begin trading Thursday on the Nasdaq Global Market under the symbol GTLB.
