Shares of Couchbase Inc jumped more than 23 percent in their Nasdaq debut on Thursday, giving the database software company a market capitalization of nearly $1.2 billion.

The shares opened at $29.60, well above $24 at which the company sold roughly 8.34 million shares in it upsized IPO Wednesday.

The company, which raised $200 million in its IPO, had earlier planned to sell 7 million shares priced between $20 and $23 each. It is backed by investors such as GPI Capital, North Bridge Venture Partners and Accel.
Couchbase's software helps customers, including media giant Comcast Corp and e-commerce firm eBay Inc, manage their databases on web and mobile applications through its NoSQL cloud database service.

Reuters reported in March that Couchbase had registered for a stock market listing that could value it as much as $3 billion, citing people familiar with the matter.

The company's market debut comes at a time when demand for data storage, security and processing has surged on a global scale with businesses moving to a remote working model due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs were the lead underwriters for the offering.
