Square, the merchant services aggregator and mobile payment company, will reportedly go public this year.  FORBES reports that Square is planning to file a confidential registration statement – a person familiar with the matter said “it’s going to happen soon, if it hasn’t happen already.”  Square last raised money in October 2014 at a $6bn valuation.
