Square, Inc. Reportedly Up For Sale

Square, Inc. may be available for sale. Ahead of heavy losses the company may plan to put itself on sale. Meanwhile, Forbes, citing unnamed sources, reported the company is trying to position itself for an IPO later this year. Square plans to file a "confidential" registration statement.

Square May Reportedly Conduct IPO

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. Square isn’t interested in selling itself, Rabois said. The company is growing “incredibly fast,” and has margins that are five times greater than Amazon Inc.’s, he said. A spokesman for Square declined to comment on whether or not the company is preparing for an IPO.
