Cloud file-sharing company Box is now publicly trading on the New York Stock Exchange, debuting at $20.20 per share.
That’s translates into a nice pop for Box on its big day. Last night, the company predicted its long-delayed IPO would arrive on the NYSE at $14 a share, after originally setting the price between $11 and $13 a share earlier this month.
A Box spokeswoman sent over a statement on the news from Box’s colorful chief executive, Aaron Levie:
We’re in the midst of a profound technology shift, as businesses of all sizes move their critical information and processes to the cloud. It’s an incredible time to be building an enterprise software company, and we couldn’t be more excited about Box’s future.
But that aside, there’s lots more coming up, for both Box’s itself and its many competitors. So while today is significant, Levie really is right to point to the future, as the company continues to improve its finances.
