Grill Maker Weber Prices Downsized US$250 Million IPO

Grill maker Weber Inc. (NYSE: WEBR) started publicly trading on the New York Stock Exchange today under the symbol “WEBR”. The firm’s initial public offering is looking to raise US$250.0 million and is expected to close on August 9, 2021.

The offering will be conducted through the issuance of 17,857,143 Class A common shares selling at US$14.00 per share, putting the company’s valuation at roughly US$5 billion. This is an adjustment from the company’s original plan with its selling shareholders to sell approximately 47 million shares with share price expectations between US$15.00 and US$17.00. The resulting priced offering only comes from the company selling its shares.

The company granted a 30-day over-allotment option to purchase additional 2,678,571 common shares at the same IPO price. Goldman Sachs & Co., BofA Securities, Inc., and J.P. Morgan Securities are all acting as joint lead bookrunners for the said offering.

The Illinois-based company is going public on the New York-based exchange days after fellow grill maker Traeger Inc. (Nasdaq: COOK) went public on the same big board and closed its own IPO.
