Peloton went public yesterday, and the results were much less than impressive. In its first day of trading, the company saw its shares fall 11%. The company priced shares at $29, but saw them fall throughout the day. The company produces exercise equipment and classes and has a cult following among its customers. Despite the fall though, in some way the IPO is a big success, at least for the founders of the company. In its last private funding round in 2018, it was valued at $4.15 bn, but opened at $7.7 bn yesterday. That is a much better showing than other recent big IPOs.
FINSUM: This company is losing almost $200m per quarter on revenue of less than $1 bn. It is fortunate it did not fall further given the current environment.
