Cybersecurity software maker McAfee Corp. has filed to go public, adding to the roster of companies rushing to cash in on a hot market for U.S. initial public offerings.

The San Jose, California-based company listed the size of the offering as US$100 million in a filing Monday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The amount is a placeholder that will likely change.

McAfee, previously a unit of Intel Corp., plans to list on Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol MCFE. It counts TPG and Thoma Bravo among its backers, according to its prospectus.

Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., TPG Capital, Bank of America Corp. and Citigroup Inc. are leading the share sale.
