Freshworks Shouldn’t Spoil on Delivery

Freshworks won’t have the initial public offering world to itself this week, but the cloud-software company is appetizing enough to stand out in a crowded pack.

Thirteen companies are slated to make their debuts this week, according to IPO Boutique. The largest of those will be Freshworks, which makes a suite of cloud-based software services aimed primarily at small and midsize businesses. The company will sell about $969 million worth of shares at the top end of its recently raised price range. That would land Freshworks a market value around $9.7 billion.
