Zulily.com, the flash-sale retailer focused squarely on Net-savvy moms, filed its paperwork Tuesday to raise up to $100 million in an initial public offering.
The $100 million figure is a placeholder amount, the company said, also noting that Goldman Sachs Group, Bank of America, and Citigroup are managing the sale. Zulily hopes to list on the Nasdaq under the symbol ZU.

You'll no longer see common URL characters on the keyboard, along with the disappearance of the extension shortcut key.… Read more
