Short-term home rental company Airbnb and food delivery firm DoorDash are also gearing up to go public later this year, as the IPO market rebounds sharply after coronavirus-driven economic uncertainty brought it to a halt in April.

Buyout firm TPG had acquired a majority stake in McAfee from Intel in 2016 in a deal which valued the company at $4.2 billion, including debt.

McAfee said in the filing that a portion of the proceeds would be used to pay down a part of the debt.

Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, TPG Capital BD, BofA Securities and Citigroup are the lead underwriters for the offering.
