BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Skyward expands IPO to potential $154 million


Houston-based insurer Skyward Specialty Insurance Group Inc. said late Thursday it has increased the size of its initial public offering, which could generate $154 million in proceeds.

Shares in Skyward began trading Friday on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the ticker symbol SKWD, priced at $15 a share, which is the mid-point of the previously announced range. The shares jumped about 25% in initial trading.

The offering consists of 4,750,000 shares of common stock offered by the company, 4,202,383 offered by existing stockholders – a 12% increase over the amount previously allocated for the offering – and 1,342,857 from existing stockholders that underwriters will have the option to buy, up about 5%.

Skyward changed its name from Houston International Insurance Group after a capital raise in 2020.
