Marketing data company Klaviyo, Inc. (KVYO proposed) filed to go public today (Friday, Aug. 25, 2023) in an IPO with a placeholder amount of $100 million. Boston-based Klaviyo plans to list its stock on the New York Stock Exchange.

The co-managers’ team consists of Baird, Canaccord Genuity, Needham & Co. and TD Cowen.

“Our modern and intuitive SaaS (Software as a Service) platform combines our proprietary data and application layers into one vertically integrated solution with advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities,” Klaviyo says in the prospectus. “This enables business users of any skill level to harness their data in order to send the right message at the right time across email, SMS, and push notifications, more accurately measure and predict performance, and deploy the specific actions and campaigns that drive the highest impact.”

A Shopify-affiliated investment fund is among Klaviyo’s principal stockholders.

For the 12 months that ended June 30, 2023, Klaviyo reported a net loss of $9.5 million on revenue of $585.1 million.
