Business survey company Medallia filed documents with the Securities and Exchange Commission Friday that detailed its financials ahead of a planned IPO, the latest offering from an enterprise software company.

The company said its loss widened to $82.2 million for the fiscal year ending Jan. 31, 2019, and said it expects to continue to incur losses as it grows. Its customer base has increased by 20% in the last year and revenues also increased 20% to $313.6 million for the year ending January 31, largely from subscriptions. The San Mateo, Calif.-based company has raised over $330 million from investors such as Sequoia Capital, TriplePoint Venture Growth and Saints Capital at a valuation of $2.4 billion, according to Pitchbook. In May, it said it had filed confidentially for an IPO. It will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker MDLA.

Medallia, which placed 15th on Forbes’ Cloud 100 2018 list, collects and analyzes customer information and feedback and competes with Qualtrics and SurveyMonkey. Founded by husband-and-wife duo Borge Hald and Amy Pressman in 2001, the company is part of a new group of customer experience software companies whose customers includes Airbnb, Comcast, Mercedes Benz and PayPal. Hald and Pressman together own just over 15% of the company. Medallia hired CEO Leslie Stretch in August 2018, who told Forbes then that Medallia was planning to go public in the near future.

It’s been a good year for software company IPOs. Slack, the workplace instant messaging platform, popped in an unusual direct listing in its Thursday debut, making co-founder and CEO Stewart Butterfield a billionaire and its startup CEOs investors even richer. The same happened for Zoom’s CEO, Eric Yuan — the video conferencing company surged 72% in its April debut, making Zoom’s market cap $15.9 billion and Yuan worth $3.2 billion.
