Spot Secondary Powers Coupa Software Inc (COUP) Higher

Although secondary offerings typically cause stocks to fall, Coupa’s offering has been the exception to the rule. Coupa Software Inc (NASDAQ:COUP) surged 13.7% on Wednesday after the company priced a spot secondary of 4.4 million shares at $25.25 each. Originally planned to be 3.7 million shares, the company and its underwriters raised the offering size to 4.4 million shares due to strong demand. On the account of the fact that most of the shares sold from the offering were from third party holders, Coupa Software Inc (NASDAQ:COUP) will get only around $2 million in net proceeds. Due to Wednesday’s solid performance, shares of unified, cloud-based spend management platform maker have surged almost 16% year-to-date, far outpacing the NASDAQ’s 8.4% advance.
