Robinhood is aiming to raise as much as $2.3 billion in its upcoming stock market debut, the company said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday.
The popular investing app said it’s offering 55 million shares priced at between $38 and $42 each during its roadshow. At the top end of that range, Robinhood could have a market valuation of $35 billion.
It plans to list on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “HOOD” and is expected to go public by the end of next week. Under its new program to “democratize” IPOs, Robinhood plans to allocate 35% of its IPO shares to retail investors, The Wall Street Journal reported.
If it hits $101.50 per share in the next four years, cofounders Vlad Tenev and Baiju Bhatt could receive up to $1.4 billion worth of Robinhood stock each, an SEC filing from June said.
Robinhood, which counts 17.7 million monthly active users, holds $81 billion in assets under custody, its filing says. It also says it has 22.5 million funded accounts, or those tied to a bank account, up from 18 million in the first-quarter this year, far above the 40,000 accounts it counted in 2014.
Revenue for the first quarter of 2021 came in at $522 million, up from $128 million in the same period last year. The company expects to report second-quarter revenue in the range of $546 million and $574 million, marking a 129% jump from the $244 million made in the second-quarter last year.
Robinhood was valued at $11.7 billion in a private fundraising round late last year. But based on trading in the secondary market, Bloomberg Intelligence analyst David Ritter had previously estimated it could be worth as much as $40 billion.
Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Citigroup, and JPMorgan are the lead underwriters on Robinhood’s IPO, among other banks.
