Zoominfo aims to price IPO above target in largest 2020 tech listing

Zoominfo Technologies is looking to price its initial public offering on Wednesday above its upwardly revised target range in what is set to be the largest US technology listing so far this year, people familiar with the matter said.

A B2B data-seller, Zoominfo — not to be confused with Zoom Video Communications, the firm that offers video conferencing — is looking to sell shares in the IPO at $21 each, above its upwardly revised $19 to $20 target range, the sources said, cautioning that the final price has not yet been settled.

The Carlyle Group-backed business intelligence platform has said it is looking to sell 44.5 million shares, which at $21 would raise $934.5 million to value the company at just over $8 billion.

Zoominfo declined to comment.

The listing is the latest in a packed week for IPOs, which have rebounded after market turmoil in March and April over the COVID-19 pandemic delayed many listings.

Earlier on Wednesday, Warner Music Group Corp’s stock popped 8 percent on its Nasdaq debut, after selling $1.9 billion in shares toward the higher end of its target range in the largest US IPO so far this year.

Zoominfo said its customers in industries most affected by the pandemic, including retail, restaurant, hotels, airlines and oil and gas, may reduce their technology or sales and marketing spending, which could adversely impact its business.

JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley were lead book runners for the IPO. Zoominfo shares are due to begin trading on Nasdaq on Thursday under the trading symbol “ZI.”
