Square, Inc. could conduct an initial public offering this year if it wanted to, its former chief operating officer said. “It will be a public company, the only question is when is the right opportunity to take advantage of that,” Keith Rabois, who was Chief Operating Officer of Square from 2010 to 2013 said.
