Yelp looking for $12 to $14 per share in IPO

Yelp hopes to price IPO at $12 to $14 per share, pegging company's value as high as $840M By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' Online business rating service Yelp hopes to sell its stock for $12 to $14 per share in an upcoming IPO.

The price range set in a Thursday regulatory filing marks the first time the Yelp has publicly disclosed how much it thinks it's worth. If the initial public offering sells at $14 a share, Yelp would have a market value of about $840 million.

Yelp Inc. plans to sell 7.1 million shares while its charitable foundation will sell 50,000 shares. Investment bankers also have an option sell an additional 1.1 million shares, depending on investor demand.

At $14 per share, the IPO could raise as much as $115 million, before expenses.

Thursday's filing signaled Yelp is nearing the end of an IPO process that began in mid-November.
