PagerDuty just filed its S-1

PagerDuty, an 8.5-year-old, San Francisco-based company that sends companies information about their technology, just filed its S-1, a public disclosure about its plans to go public.

The company, which helps companies quickly respond to IT incidents, as well as increasingly tries to anticipate them, had reportedly filed confidentially several months ago but the 35-day government shutdown meant that no one could review its prospectus (or that of other companies) at the time.

According to a story from Bloomberg dating back a ways, Morgan Stanley is leading the offering.

We’ve reached out to the company for more information.

PagerDuty was valued at $1.3 billion last fall when it closed on $90 million in Series D funding led by T. Rowe Price Associates and Wellington Management. Earlier backers Accel, Andreessen Horowitz and Bessemer Venture Partners had also joined the round, which brought the company’s total funding to $173 million.

We profiled the company’s CEO, Jennifer Tejada, last fall. Assuming the company’s plans move forward without a hitch, Tejada will join a small but growing list of women CEOs who’ve taken the tech companies they lead public, including Eventbrite’s Julia Hartz, and Stitch Fix CEO Katrina Lake.

More on this developing story shortly .  .  .
