Earlier on Tuesday, sources said Delivery Hero had narrowed the IPO price guidance to 23.75-25.50 euros a share, adding new orders would only be taken until close of business on Tuesday.

The company aims to raise 927 million euros ($1.04 billion) through a stock market listing that could value Delivery Hero at up to 4.4 billion euros.
