Twitter raises $1.82 billion in IPO by Dan Primack @FortuneMagazine November 6, 2013, 11:58 PM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons FORTUNE — Twitter this evening raised $1.82 billion in its initial public offering, and tomorrow morning is expected to begin trading its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under ticker symbol TWTR. The micro-messaging service price 70 million shares at $26 per share, which is higher than both its original $17-$20 price range and its recently-revised price range of $23-$25 per share. It is, however, a bit lower than speculation earlier in the evening that the company would price the shares at $27 each, perhaps because the company is seeking to maximize its first-day trading “pop.” At $26, Twitter would have a market capitalization of approximately $14.16 billion. Including stock options, the company’s value climbs to more than $18 billion. All of the shares offered in the IPO came from the company, rather than from insiders. This is a major difference between Twitter’s IPO and Facebook’s offering from May 2012, where more than half of the shares came from directors, early investors and other insiders.
