Carbon Black Files IPO, Plans to Raise $100M

The endpoint security firm filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 9.

Carbon Black is pursuing an initial public offering, the company announced this week. The endpoint security firm plans to list its common stock on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under "CBLK."

In a statement on the news, Carbon Black reports it has publicly filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, but the statement has not yet become effective. Carbon Black says it has not determined the amount of shares and price range; however, its SEC filing indicates the company plans to raise $100 million.

Carbon Black was founded in 2002 under the name Bit9. It acquired Carbon Black in 2014 and later adopted the same name. It focuses on multiple facets of endpoint security including application control, endpoint detection and response, and next-generation antivirus.
