The network infrastructure provider priced shares Thursday at $16; they opened at $22.50 on Friday and fell to around $21.50 in morning trading.

Infoblox (BLOX) joins fellow data-management companies Splunk (SPLK) and Proofpoint (PFPT) in debuting on public markets this week.

Proofpoint shares were up about 20% on Friday, trading at around $15.75 after being priced Thursday at $13. Splunk shares more than doubled versus their offering price in the first day of trading, closing at $35.48 Thursday after the company priced them at $17 a day prior.
