Only a few days after speculation first surfaced, communications technology vendor Avaya filed papers with the SEC to sell $1 billion of stock to pay down debt.

Avaya officials have filed the necessary papers for a $1 billion IPO following two days of speculation.

The Wall Street Journal had reported June 7 that Avaya, a networking and communications technology vendor, was preparing to go public again, taking advantage of a newly energized IPO market buoyed by the likes of LinkedIn and Groupon.

Avaya officials late June 9 announced that they had filed the paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission seeking to sell $1 billion worth of stock in the company. Analysts had said the IPO would be about 20 percent of the company’s worth, putting the overall value of Avaya at about $5 billion.

According to Avaya, the company will use some of that $1 billion to pay down long-term debt, among other things.

The company issued a release, but a spokesperson said Avaya executives would not comment further on the IPO.

Handling the public offering will be Morgan Stanley & Co., Goldman, Sachs & Co., J.P. Morgan Securities, Citigroup Global Markets, Deutsche Bank Securities, BofA Merrill Lynch, Barclays Capital, UBS Investment Bank and Credit Suisse Securities.
