The company has proposed trading its stock under the "VIGN" ticker symbol on the Nasdaq National Market. Vignette expects to raise about $30 million through the IPO.
SEC documents show Vignette reported a net loss of $7.5 million or $1.19 a share for fiscal 1997, on revenue of $3 million. For the first half of 1998, the company posted a net loss of $9.7 million, or $1.17 per share, on revenues of $5.2 million.
Talk of a Vignette IPO first became public in May, when the company named Greg Peters chief executive.
Vignette, based in Austin, Texas, has more than 150 employees.
(CNET: The Computer Network, publisher of News.com, owns an equity stake in Vignette. Portions of the StoryServer technology were developed by CNET and sold to Vignette in 1996 in exchange for stock in the company.)
