移动支付商Square有望第四季度上市

据报道,总部位于旧金山的移动支付公司Square预计在2015年第四季度上市。

知情人士表示,组织新股过程中,Square一直在与高盛集团公司、摩根史坦利投资公司和摩根大通公司合作。

彭博资讯七月份的一篇文章的最新后续报道显示,Square已经秘密向美国证券交易委员会提交了首次公开募股计划。《JOBS法案》允许收入不足10亿美元的公司在公开财务状况之前提交和设定计价条款。

八月份动荡的市场似乎并没有影响Square的首次公开募股计划,但是Square首席执行官Jack Dorsey的命运却尚不明确,Jack Dorsey同时也是社交媒体公司Twitter的临时负责人。

由于Twitter股价猛跌,Jack Dorsey已经被投资者紧密观察了好几个月了。Twitter的首席执行官Dick Costolo六月中旬辞职,联合创始人Dorsey重返Twitter,担任临时首席执行官。

51岁的Costolo自2010年10月起担任Twitter的首席执行官,辞职之后,仍然是公司董事会成员。

由于这家微博社交媒体公司持续刊登一些令人扫兴的消息,此前,Costolo面临着越来越多的审查,再加上用户增长缓慢,导致Twitter的股价从2013年12月史上最高点暴跌了65%。

Dorsey在Twitter时也成为了争论点之一,因为他一直处在Square的领导层。如果他决定出任Twitter的首席执行官,那么他就很可能不得不与Twitter之外其他的任职告别,但是Dorsey一直是长期风险资本投资者的最佳人选之一,其他人选还包括风投公司Andreessen Horowitz的Marc Andreessen和Lowercase Capital LLC公司的 Chris Sacca。

Andreessen在接受采访时说:“我自身更支持在任何可能的时候,创办者领导其创建的公司。”

有关消息还显示,科尔伯格-克拉维斯公司支持的支付公司——第一资讯公司今年也将会启动价值25亿美元的首次公开募股。而这将是今年目前为止最大规模的公开发售。

此外,彭博资讯还称,Square已经制定了后续计划,以应对Dorsey离开Square之后的突发情况。

San Francisco-based mobile payments company Square Inc. is planning its IPO for the fourth quarter of 2015, Bloombeg reports.

The report cites people familiar with the matter who said Square has been working with Goldman Sachs Group Inc. , Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan Chase & Co. as it structures the offering.

The latest report follows one from Bloomberg in July that said Square had already filed IPO plans confidentially with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The JOBS Act allows companies with less than $1 billion in revenue to file and set pricing terms privately before being subject to public disclosure of their finances.

An IPO for Square appears not to have been dampened by August’s market volatility. But the fate of its CEO, Jack Dorsey, who also is acting as interim head of social media company Twitter, remains unclear.

Twitter has been under the microscope from investors for months, as its stock has plunged. CEO Dick Costolo stepped down in mid-June and co-founder Dorsey returned to the company as interim CEO.

Costolo, 51, who had helmed Twitter since October 2010, made the decision to step down but has remained on the company's board.

He had faced increasing scrutiny as the microblog social media company continued to post disappointing results. That, coupled with slowing user growth, caused a 65 percent nose dive in Twitter’s share price from its all-time high in December 2013.

Dorsey’s time at Twitter has also been a source of contention, because he continues to helm Square. That outside commitment would likely have to be shed if he decides to stay on as CEO. But Dorsey is the preferred pick for longstanding venture capital investors, including Marc Andreessen of Andreessen Horowitz and Chris Sacca of Lowercase Capital LLC.

“I’m reflexively in favor of founders leading companies whenever possible,” Andreessen told Bloomberg Television.

Bloomberg also cited sources as saying that First Data Corp., the payments company backed by KKR & Co., will launch a $2.5 billion IPO this year as well. That would be the biggest public offering so far this year.

Square is putting in place a plan of succession in case Dorsey leaves, the report said.
