Pinterest is expected to price its initial public offering above the expected range, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Pinterest is expected to price its IPO on Wednesday.

The image-sharing social media company initially said in a regulatory filing that it planned to sell 75 million shares at price range of $15 to $17 a share, valuing the company at $9 billion.

The company reported $756 million in 2018 revenue in its IPO prospectus. Revenue grew 60% year over year, but the social media company still had a net loss of $63 million.

Pinterest will list under the symbol PINS on the New York Stock Exchange. The company will go public with a dual-class share structure to concentrate voting power with Class B shareholders, which include co-founder and CEO Benjamin Silbermann.
