SurveyMonkey, a San Mateo, Calif.-based provider of survey software, said on Monday that it has confidentially submitted its registration to go public. The company is expected to file publicly soon after regulatory review.

Why it matters: Founded in 1999, SurveyMonkey was said to be looking to go public a few years ago, but those plans were put on hold after then-CEO Dave Goldberg died in May 2015. Since then, the company has undergone management changes and other business adjustments to get back on track.
