Pet supplies retailer Petco Holdings announced plans Monday to return to the public market, setting the stage for what could be one of the largest stock offerings in San Diego corporate history.
Petco made the announcement after the close of stock marketing trading on Monday, saying it has filed a registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The number of shares to be offered and the price range for the offering have not yet been determined.
Underwriters of the offering are Goldman, Sachs & Co., BofA Merrill Lynch, J.P. Morgan, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank Securities, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo Securities.
The $3 billion company was taken private in 2006 by private-equity firms TPG and Leonard Green & Partners.
Petco operates more than 1,400 stores across the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico.
