Snapchat's parent is working on an initial public offering that could value the company at $25 billion or more, the Wall Street Journal reported last week.

JPMorgan Chase & Co, Deutsche Bank AG, Allen & Co, Barclays Plc and Credit Suisse Group AG will also be involved as joint book runners, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.

Snapchat and the lead bankers were not immediately available for comment. (Reporting by Sruthi Ramakrishnan in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
