Milwaukee-based specialty vehicle maker Rev Group Inc. hopes to raise $231.4 million in its initial public offering and use the money to pay down long-term debt.
The company, which moved its headquarters to Milwaukee from Orlando last year, plans to offer 12.5 million shares of common stock in the offering and is expecting it to be priced between $19 and $21 per share.
The midpoint of that range would give the company $231.4 million in proceeds after expenses and underwriting discounts. A $1 per share change in the price would increase or decrease the proceeds by $11.7 million.
