The company seeks a valuation of about $39 billion
The on-demand prepared food delivery service - DoorDash – will begin trading today, after rising the previously expected price-range of $90 - $95 a share.
The San Francisco-based company founded by former Stanford students Tony Xu, Stanley Tang, Andy Fang, and Evan Moore announced that its initial public offering would price at $102 per share. The change gives the company a valuation of around $39 billion.
Currently, DoorDash owns 50% of the US prepared-food delivery market with more than 18 million customers and 1 million people who deliver food, and 390,000 merchants on its platform. Uber Eats is in second place with 33%.
Since its 2013 launch, DoorDash has raised a lot of attention on itself. Over the years, it received funding from SoftBank’s Vision Fund, Kleiner Perkins, and Sequoia Capital. Now, its listing will be led by 12 underwriters, the most important being JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, and Barclays.
DoorDash will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol DASH later on today, offering 33 million shares of Class A common stock. Its IPO follows that of Snowflake and Palantir. Coming up next will be Airbnb.
