Ireland's most highly-valued technology firm, Intercom, is "actively" considering an IPO, according to its CEO.

The customer messaging company, which has leased a new Dublin office with space for almost 800 people, is discussing an IPO as a next step, Eoghan McCabe told the Irish Independent.

"They are real, meaningful, practical conversations internally," he said. "We don't have fixed timelines or fixed outcomes. It's on the menu for us. Before, it was something we aspired to. But now we have the scale and the business in terms of revenue."
