Spinal device company K2M has moved ahead with its initial public offering on the Nasdaq, joining the growing wave of medtech floats this year. The Leesburg, Virgina-based firm saw its stock open at $15 per share on 8 May – over 5.4 million shares were traded through the day, dipping to a low of $14.51 and hitting a high of $15.23, before settling back and closing at $15. The pricing is a tad lower than what the company had anticipated. At the end of April, K2M had said in a SEC filing that it planned to sell 8.8 million shares at $16-18 each. K2M, listed under the ticker symbol KTWO, develops complex and minimally invasive technologies to treat difficult and challenging spinal pathologies.
