Flywire Corp is seeking a valuation of up to $2.4 billion in its initial public offering in the United States, the Temasek Holdings-backed payments firm said in a filing on Tuesday.

The company said it is offering 8.7 million shares with voting rights for a price between $22 and $24 each. At the top end of the range, the IPO would bring in nearly $209 million for Flywire.
