An IPO, or Initial Public Offering, is a company's first introduction to the public market. They can be quiet affairs or major events depending on the company's profile.

Snapchat still isn’t profitable nearly two years after its IPO. In Q4 2019, Snap lost $241 million on 560.8 million in revenue that’s up 44% year-over-year and an EPS of $0.03. That comes from adding 8 million daily users to reach a total of 218, up 3.8% this quarter from 210 million and 17% year-over-year.

The class action intends to target Arowana, its directors and certain former Intueri directors who promoted the $2.35 per share initial public offering in which about 800 investors participated.

Last year, Uber and Lyft, ride-hailing competitors that are both losing huge amounts of money, had disappointing public offerings. WeWork, the commercial real estate company, dropped its I.P.O. plans and experienced a management shake-up after investors recoiled from its poor financial performance.

Snowflake, the cloud-based data warehouse company, doesn’t tend to do small rounds. On Friday night word leaked out about its latest mega round. This one was for $479 million on a $12.4 billion valuation. That’s triple the company’s previous $3.9 billion valuation from October 2018, and CEO Frank Slootman suggested that the company’s next finance event is likely an IPO.

The NZX had just two new company listings in the 2019, but Peterson said both had been successful and demonstrated the market's support for initial public offerings.
