DocuSign priced its IPO Thursday evening at \$29 per share, netting the company \$629 million.
It was a better price than the e-signature company had been expecting. The initially proposed price range was \$24 to \$26 and then that was raised to \$26 to \$28.
The price gives the company a valuation of \$4.4 billion on the eve of its public debut, above the \$3 billion the company had raised for its last private round.
The IPO has been a long-time coming. Founded in 2003, DocuSign had raised over \$500 million over the course of 15 years.
The company brought in \$518.5 million in revenue for its fiscal year ending in 2018. This is up from \$381.5 million last year and \$250.5 million the year before. Losses for this year were \$52.3 million, down from \$115.4 million last year and, \$122.6 million for 2016.
“We have a history of operating losses and may not achieve or sustain
