San Mateo, Calif.-based action camera company GoPro registered to go public on Friday.
The company is the latest to file for a "secret" initial public offering. New rules, under the 2012 JOBS Act, allow companies to keep much of their operational information out of the public eye until shortly before the shares begin to trade. The act allows for companies with annual revenues of less than $1 billion to file with the SEC confidentially.
The date for GoPro's IPO hasn't yet been set, but it is expected to be at the end of the second quarter of 2014. JPMorgan is the lead banker on the offering, with Citigroup and Bank of America as possible participants, a source told CNBC.

"We talk about wearables all the time, whether it's Google Glass or Fitbit. Well, GoPro is probably the most successful wearable electronics company out there, " said Stephen Baker, vice president of industry analysis at NPD Group, a consumer market research firm.
"It is more than a camera. It's not just a standard piece of hardware. There is a lifestyle and brand associated with it," Baker added.
