*I am not a financial adviser. Just giving my personal opinion based on experiences. If you have any financial question I will do my best to help walk you through what I would do in that situation but make sure to consult an adviser if one is required.
In 2019, Airbnb brought on some key new hires — including an Amazon veteran to serve as the company’s chief financial officer — that signaled the home-sharing matchmaker was tidying up to go public soon. Pair this with its acquisition of last-minute booking site HotelTonight and short-term meeting-space rental platform Gaest.com, and things were looking promising.
When the global coronavirus outbreak severely impacted travel, Airbnb’s IPO became uncertain. But on August 11, 2020, reports indicated the company was in fact planning to confidentially file its IPO paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission in August, suggesting a 2020 IPO is still a possibility.
The details of Asana’s IPO are still hazy, but the workplace-efficiency app company announced in February that it had confidentially filed a draft Form S-1 with the SEC. Asana is expected to take the direct-listing route, a strategy made famous by Spotify and Slack. Through a direct public offering, or DPO, companies don’t issue new shares of stock — rather, company insiders sell their existing stock directly to new investors, bypassing Wall Street middlemen.
Shoemaker Cole Haan has over 90 years of experience in consumer goods, weathering the greater part of the 20th century’s ups and downs.
Over the last few years, the company has invested $100 million into digital innovation to remain relevant in the quickly evolving retail space. Cole Haan’s IPO timing, however, is subject to change. Reports indicate it, too, may delay its IPO as the coronavirus and other factors continue to exert downward pressure on the stock market. When it comes time to list, it’s hoping to raise $100 million.
If you hadn’t heard of DoorDash prior to the coronavirus pandemic, chances are that all changed during the various lockdown periods that followed the initial outbreak. In April 2020, DoorDash alone accounted for 45% of all food delivery transactions in the U.S., making it the largest such service in the country, according to a report from market intelligence firm Edison Trends. For comparison, rivals Uber Eats and Grubhub made up 28% and 17% of the market, respectively.
DoorDash filed its Form S-1 in February 2020, but so far, this is the only official form it has filed with the SEC.
The pandemic has undoubtedly reshaped consumer behavior. When Americans aren’t ordering delivery from their favorite takeout restaurant via DoorDash, they are getting their staple groceries delivered from their favorite grocery stores via Instacart.
In a June 11 blog post, Instacart said it had experienced an “unprecedented surge in customer demand” for its services, leading the company to double its workforce of shoppers to about 500,000. Following this demand, Instacart raised $225 million, bringing its current valuation to $13.7 billion.
Instacart CEO Apoorva Mehta said in an interview with CNBC in May 2019 that he expects the company will eventually prepare for an IPO, but it has yet to file any official paperwork with the SEC regarding a move to go public.
Stock-trading commissions were largely eliminated by major online brokers last year, which may have diluted the appeal of free-trading app Robinhood. But the app continues to add users in large numbers, and CEO Baiju Bhatt has said the company, with a valuation north of $7.5 billion, does indeed intend to go public.
However, Robinhood has not yet presented a timeline or public filing, and given its slew of recent app outages during major market moves, it’s unclear when the company may do so.
