Start-up Bloom Energy Corp, which makes fuel cell boxes that can power an entire building, filed for an initial public offering with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission late on Tuesday.
The Sunnyvale, California-based company has applied to list its Class A common stock on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “BE.” (bit.ly/2l4LwzL)
The regulatory filing showed the company intends to raise up to $100 million in the IPO, though the amount in the first filing is usually a placeholder.
Bloom boxes, Bloom Energy’s solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) power generator, provides 100 kilowatts of electricity – enough to power 100 average U.S. homes.
The U.S. Congress in December extended tax credits to fuel cells makers which is expected to boost profits in the industry.
J.P.Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, KeyBanc Capital Markets and BofA Merrill Lynch are among lead underwriters to the IPO.
