Bellevue technology company Apptio priced its initial public offering of stock at $16 per share Thursday.

That’s higher than its anticipated price range of $13 to $15 a share. The stock will start trading Friday on Nasdaq under the ticker APTI.

The company is selling 6 million shares, according to updated documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. That means Apptio would make $96 million in its IPO.

Apptio filed plans to become a public company in August, indicating it hoped to raise $75 million. Two weeks later, it increased that number to more than $100 million.

Apptio provides cloud-based software that helps corporate IT departments manage equipment, usage and costs. The 700-employee company is led by entrepreneur Sunny Gupta, who co-founded Apptio in 2007.

Friday’s offering will mark the second tech IPO from Puget Sound region companies this year, ending a drought that persisted throughout 2015. Radio frequency technology company Impinj raised about $67.2 million when it went public in July.
