Beyond Meat is going public: 5 things to know about the plant-based meat maker

Beyond Meat, the company created by vegan Ethan Brown in 2009, is planning to go public to raise the money it needs to grow its line of plant-based meats.

The maker of the Beyond Burger, which is sold at Whole Foods AMZN, -0.97% and restaurant chain TGIF, has applied to list on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “BYND”.

Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Credit Suisse are lead underwriters on the deal with BofA Merrill Lynch, Jefferies and William Blair acting as co-managers. The company, which also makes pork and poultry products, has not yet set a price range or specified how much it is aiming to raise, using the placeholder sum of $100 million in its prospectus.
