LinkedIn Looks To Raise $274 Million In IPO

MOUNTAIN VIEW (AP) – Professional networking website LinkedIn Corp. plans to sell shares to investors for $32 to $35 each in an initialpublic offering.

The company says the offering could raise up to $274.4 million. LinkedIn estimates that its net proceeds, based on an IPO price of $33.50 per share, would be about $146.6 million after expenses.
