SentinelOne, an Israeli cybersecurity firm, has been on somewhat of a roller coaster ride while on its way to the company’s exit. The firm had once expected a $10 billion valuation from its initial public offering IPO on the New York Stock Exchange. That optimistic valuation was recently dropped to just $7 billion. But now SentinelOne has raised its expected valuation up to as much as a possible $8.3 billion.
Cybersecurity company SentinelOne now says that it will offer shares at a price of $31-32 per share, up from the $26-29 per share price range that the company reported just last week. The company now expects to raise between $992 million and $1.02 billion from the IPO. That amount could reach between $1.14-1.17 billion if the underwriters exercise their thirty-day option to buy shares at the offering price. So SentinelOne now expects a valuation of anywhere from $7.9 to 8.3 billion. But even at the high end this still constitutes a 17% drop from the once expected $10 billion valuation, or $1.7 billion less.
To date the SentinelOne has reportedly raised $700 million in investment. Its investors include Tiger Global Management, Sequoia Capital, Insight Partners, Sinewave Ventures and Third Point Ventures. Last year SentinelOne raised $467 million.
