Twitter says it filed confidential IPO registration with U.S.


Twitter Inc. said it filed a registration statement for an initial public offering with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

“We’ve confidentially submitted an S-1 to the SEC for a planned IPO,” the company said via its corporate Twitter feed on its website. “This Tweet does not constitute an offer of any securities for sale.”

Companies with less than $1 billion in annual revenue are able to submit IPO filings confidentially with U.S. regulators under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups, or JOBS, Act.
