Snowflake Melts Up To 100% Gain After Biggest Software IPO Ever Tyler Durden Wed, 09/16/2020 - 12:38 The much-hyped IPO of the aptly-named 'Snowflake' is about to make many of America's richest even richer-erer. It sold 28 million shares Tuesday for $120 apiece, above an already elevated range (SNOW's initial IPO range was $75-85 on Sept 8; then it was bumped to $100-110 on Sept 14).
