Video conferencing company Zoom prices IPO at $36 per share, giving it a $9.2 billion valuation — 9 times its last private valuation


The video communication company Zoom priced its IPO at $36 per share on Wednesday, above its expected range, a source familiar with the process told Business Insider.

This values the company at $9.2 billion — about 9 times its last private valuation of $1 billion in 2017. CNBC previously reported the price.

The company is expected to start trading Thursday on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “ZM.” It will be joined by Pinterest, another unicorn company valued over $1 billion, which is also expected to list on Thursday, this time on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker “PINS.”

Zoom’s IPO price comes in above the $33 to $35 price range set by the company in a filing on Tuesday. An earlier version of Zoom’s S-1 from April 8 had set its range much lower, at $28 to $33 per share.
