After the close Wednesday, Lemonade priced 11 million shares at $29 apiece, above the already increased range of $26 to $28 from earlier in the day.

Underwriters have another 1.7 million shares to cover overallotments over the next 30 days. The stock is expected to begin trading under the ticker "LMND" on the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday.
