Twitter to price its IPO shares between $17 and $20

Twitter is positioned now to begin its 'road show' to investors

Twitter plans to price its IPO shares between US$17 and $20 when it lists on the New York Stock Exchange, the company said Thursday in a filing

Based on an assumed initial public offering price of $18.50 -- the midpoint of the range -- Twitter estimates the net proceeds from the sale of shares of common stock will be roughly $1.25 billion, the company said in documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Some 80.5 million shares of common stock will be registered, according to the filing.

Releasing its IPO price range positions Twitter to begin its "road show," seeking to raise funds from investors across the country. In documents filed last week, the company said it would list its shares under the ticker symbol TWTR on the New York Stock Exchange, representing a big win for the market over rival Nasdaq.

Twitter has yet to determine a date for the listing, though one report suggested Nov. 15 could be the day.

Twitter's IPO is likely to be one of the hottest of the year and the most prominent in social media since Facebook went public last year. Twitter's share price range will be markedly lower than Facebook's, which priced its IPO at $38 per share.

Twitter filed for its highly anticipated public offering earlier this month.

3 marketing mistakes to overcome when courting prospective customers

Marketing that urges respondents to ‘buy now’ is a little like asking someone to marry you on your first date. At any time, only 3 per cent of the market is looking for what you’re selling, so the chances of your date randomly being ‘The One’ is pretty slim.
