Square launched its initial public offering on Thursday. The company priced the offering of 27,000,000 shares of its Class A common stock at $9.00 per share.
This was significantly less than previously announced plans to price the IPO at $11 to $13, but things looked better after the bell rang. It opened at $11.20 per share and climbed from there.
