Dell Technologies stock is up 2 percent to $72.66 per share as of Monday afternoon.

Pivotal filed for an IPO March 23. The company reported a loss of $163 million on a 23 percent increase in sales to $509 million for its fiscal year 2018, ended Feb. 2, 2018.

The public offering comes on the heels of Dell Technologies considering strategic options that include going public or merging with its subsidiary VMware. Dell CEO Michael Dell said earlier this year that the Round Rock, Texas-based company is evaluating the two "potential business opportunities" with the desire to grow the company "even faster and thrive in the very dynamic IT marketplace."
