By mid-day on June 16, it was selling at $20.35.

Underwriters will have a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1.5 million shares from Trinseo at the IPO price less then underwriting discount, the firm said.

The offering will be made only by means of a prospectus, the firms said.

Trinseo began as Styron, and has announced plans to change the name of all Styron affiliated companies to Trinseo.
