ADT prices IPO below target

ADT Inc. said Thursday that it is pricing its initial public offering at $14 a share, which is below the $17 to $19 range the company targeted. The company is expected to start trading Friday and is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker “ADT.” At $14 a share, the company has raised about $1.6 billion, suggesting a market capitalization of just over $10 billion. Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Deutsche Bank Securities, and RBC Capital Markets are acting as joint book-runners for the IPO. Private equity firm Apollo Global Management took the firm private in a $6.9 billion leveraged buyout in February 2016. Apollo will continue to own a majority stake, making it a “controlled company” under NYSE rules. According to the company’s prospectus, a survey found that ADT has 95% brand awareness. ADT hasn’t yet released its 2017 financial results and has only been able to offer investors expectations ahead of the IPO.
