Beyond Meat priced its initial public offering at $25 a share, a source familiar with the matter tells CNBC.

That’s above the company’s expected range of between $23 and $25 per share, which was boosted from the originally set range of between $19 and $21 per share. 

At its IPO price, Beyond holds an implied market valuation of $1.46 billion. 

The company manufactures plant-based meat substitutes and plans to list on the Nasdaq with the ticker “BYND.”

In a previous filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Beyond said it plans to raise $183.8 million through its IPO and use the proceeds to invest in manufacturing facilities, research and development, and sales and marketing.

For 2018, Beyond reported revenue of $87.9 million and a net loss of $29.9 million.

Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, Jefferies and William Blair are underwriting the IPO.
