Tableau Software continues to grow at a rapid pace, though that growth is causing the Seattle maker of data visualization products to move into the red. The company swung to a net loss of $2.5 million during the third quarter, which compares to net income of $1 million for the same period last year.

But Wall Street is nonetheless smitten with the company, which in addition to announcing earnings today filed for a $450 million secondary offering. The company declined to comment on the offering, which comes four months after its IPO, which brought in about $250 million.

During the third quarter, Tableau posted revenues of $61.1 million, a 90 percent increase over the same period last year. That’s a far higher growth rate than the previous quarter when Tableau’s revenues were up 71 percent.

“We’re excited about the momentum we’re seeing in the market and look forward to extending our market leadership,” CEO Christian Chabot said in a statement.

The new cash will presumably be used to help on that front.

Tableau went public in May at $31 per share, and since then the stock has been on the rise. Shares are now trading at $68.99 in after hours trading, up nearly 10 percent. The company’s market value stands at $3.74 billion, and it now employs 1,039 full-time employees worldwide.

That’s up from 188 in December 2010 and 749 in December 2012.
