According to reports, Boca Raton, Fla.-based ADT priced its initial public offering (IPO) at $14.

The company announced that it would file for an IPO on December 21, 2017, a year after Apollo Global Management purchased it. The South Florida Business Journal reported that the original target range for the IPO was $17 - $19, to raise a total of $2 billion.
