WideOpenWest (WOW!), the sixth largest cable operator in the US, filed on Thursday with the SEC to raise up to $100 million in an initial public offering, although we estimate the deal could raise up to $750 million.

The Englewood, CO-based company was founded in 2001 and booked $1.2 billion in sales for the 12 months ended December 31, 2016. It plans to list under the symbol WOW, but has not selected an exchange. UBS Investment Bank and Credit Suisse are the joint bookrunners on the deal. No pricing terms were disclosed.
