CS Disco sets price range for its public offering

According to an updated registration statement with the SEC, CS Disco is looking at an IPO that could bring in $193 million. This is based on the mid-point price range for 7 million shares.

What to expect for the CS Disco share price

CS Disco plans to price the 7 million shares at $26–$29 each. If the $193 million IPO comes to fruition, the company would generate a fully diluted market value of $1.6 billion. That would put CS Disco at the high end of small-cap stocks, although it could compete in the mid-cap space with 25 percent growth.
