Reuters – Solar tech firm Nextracker raises $638 mln in upsized U.S. IPO


Feb 8 (Reuters) – Solar technology firm Nextracker raised $638 million in its U.S. IPO, pricing it slightly higher than its indicated target range, parent company Flex Ltd (FLEX.O) said in a statement on Wednesday, adding that the number of shares sold was increased.

Nextracker sold 26.6 million shares of its Class A common stock at $24 apiece, according to the statement, giving the Fremont, California-based company a valuation of over $3.5 billion. This comes at the upper-end of their indicated range of $20 to $23 per share.
