Airbnb files for IPO

Here’s what you need to know before the company starts trading

One of the most expected and long touted IPOs of this year could finally happen in a couple of weeks. According to the SEC documents, Airbnb filed for a $1 billion initial public offering, which is to take place in December. However, this proposed maximum aggregate offering price is commonly used as a placeholder and might not reflect the final value.

Main Investors

Airbnb has quickly gained investors’ attention, having Silver Lake, Sequoia Capital and Sixth Street as main backers, helping it raise roughly $6.4 billion. Its fame made the market cap reach $31 billion in 2017.

Financial Figures

In the past quarter, Airbnb reported a net income of $219 million, on revenues of $1.34 billion. Compared to last year’s figures, Airbnb is short on net income and revenues. The decline is caused by the coronavirus pandemic, which made traveling and leisure more difficult this year. However, it managed to rebound quickly, as rentals in rural areas have been highly in demand.

“In early 2020, as Covid-19 disrupted travel across the world, Airbnb’s business declined significantly. But within two months, our business model started to rebound even with limited international travel, demonstrating its resilience,” read the company’s statement.

Underwriters

As mentioned before, Airbnb is looking to going public in December on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol ABNB. Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs will act as main underwriters, with Bank of America, Citigroup and Wells Fargo amongst co-underwriters.
