Reuters reports that CDW has hired banks in preparation for an IPO that could raise around US$750 million. CDW did not respond to a request for comment from Reuters.
The company went private in 2007 in a deal worth US$7.3 billion. CDW is a US$10.1 billion company with 6,800 employees in the U.S. and Canada.
CDW is a key player in the Canadian channel through its wholly-owned subsidiary, CDW Canada under the leadership of Mary Anne Yule, one of CDN’s Top Women in the IT Channel. It was designated a FlexPod premium partner by Cisco and NetApp earlier this year, and reached No. 3 on CDN’s 2012 list of the Top 100 Solution Providers in Canada.
