Autobytel.com Inc., which operates a Web site for purchasing new and used vehicles, has revved up plans for an initial stock offering more than 1 1/2 years after canceling earlier plans. The Irvine-based company will seek to raise about $72 million by selling 4.5 million shares to new investors for an estimated $16 per share, according to a report filed Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. At that price, the company would have a market value of about $285.

Internet auto buying service Auto-By-Tel Corp. has changed its name to get more in line with being online. The new moniker: autobytel.com inc. And yes, they really do mean to have it all in lower case. It's part of the trend by Internet-based businesses to have their names match their Web site addresses to make it easier for potential customers. The name change coincides with a major revamp of autobytel.
