Atturra’s prospectus saw it offering approximately 49.6 million shares for 50 cents apiece, raising around $24.8 million in the process.

The raised funds will go towards the company’s growth strategy which primarily involves acquisitions.

At its current share price, Atturra has an undiluted valuation of approximately $124 million.  

Speaking on the company’s IPO, Atturra CEO Stephen Kowal commented:

Our goal is simple, we want to be one of Australia’s largest IT solutions providers with high engagement across industry, employees, and clients.
