Online insurance company Lemonade Inc. announced Thursday it intends to raise up to $286 million in its upcoming initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange. The company said it will offer 11 million shares at an estimated $23-$26 per share.
In a prospectus it filed with the exchange earlier this month, Lemonade reported $108 million in losses for 2019, twice the losses it incurred the year before. The company, however, tripled its earnings from $21 million in 2018 to around $63 million last year.
In April 2019, Lemonade raised $300 million in a round led by SoftBank Group, bringing its total funding raised to $480 million. Its other backers include Aleph Venture Capital and Sequoia Capital.
