Waystar files for proposed IPO

Waystar, a healthcare payment technology provider, took a step closer to becoming a public company.

On Oct. 16, Waystar Holdings filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, with the intent of listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the WAY symbol. The company has not determined the number of or price range for shares.
