Online-polling company SurveyMonkey has filed publicly for a U.S. initial public offering, saying it has more than half a million paying customers.

The company, under its official name Svmk Inc., filed Wednesday with an initial offering size of $100 million, typically a placeholder amount that will likely change. SurveyMonkey plans on using the proceeds to pay down income tax obligations related to a restricted stock unit settlement, for working capital and general purposes like acquisitions and technological investment.
