NEW YORK, June 13 (Reuters) - Chewy Inc CHWY.N on Thursday priced its initial public offering at $22 per share, above its target, and sold more stock than originally planned, according to a person familiar with the matter, valuing the online pet products retailer at $8.77 billion.
Chewy, controlled by private equity-owned PetSmart Inc, had set a price range of $19 to $21 per share, which was raised earlier this week from $17 to $19 per share.
Some 46.5 million Chewy shares were sold in the IPO, up from the 41.6 million originally planned, the source said, requesting anonymity because the details are private. Chewy did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
