The initial public offering (IPO) of a new firm always draws the attention of investors; if you buy in a promising newcomer early enough, you can make a lot of money. Some issuers are expected to make a “famous” public debut. Consider the anticipated high-profile IPOs in 2022.
Stripe is a technology business that creates payment acceptance and processing solutions. Stripe software is used by businesses of various sizes, from small startups to giants like Salesforce and Facebook (Meta platform, to be more precise).
Stripe is a platform that allows you to collect payments, prevent fraud, manage billing and subscriptions, and accept payments from multiple parties. Apple, Google, Alipay, Tencent, and Twitter are among its many partners.
2. Plaid, Klarna, and Revolut
Fintech investors, as well as banking and e-wallet app development companies, have had a very excellent year in 2020. The shares of PayPal and Square thereafter increased by 115 percent and 245 percent, respectively.
So, in addition to Stripe, another 5-6 financial tech startups may go public next year.
One of them is Swedish Klarna, which allows you to buy things in installments and offers a take-now, pay-later option. The corporation was valued at $46 billion this summer.
Neobank Revolut, valued at $33 billion by investors, may also go public in 2022. Plaid Fintech has the potential to draw funds from investors. These businesses are valued at $12-13 billion.
Discord is a voice, video, and text chat program geared toward gamers. Furthermore, it is so convenient that Elon Musk, a user, has praised it.
While gamers are Discord’s primary audience, the network is also used by a variety of other web communities, including musicians, artists, and entrepreneurs. Discord has approximately 270 million registered users, 14 million daily visitors, and is available in 130 countries.
Reddit, the online forum famous for its “meme” stocks, filed for an IPO in December. Advertising and premium accounts are how the company makes money. Last year, as individuals began to spend more time on the Internet, Reddit had a 44 percent increase in daily users to 52 million.
Reddit’s IPO will not be the largest, but definitely the loudest, given the army of traders from the forum.
Mobileye is number five.
In 2022, Intel’s subsidiary Mobileye will go public. It creates equipment for self-driving cars. The corporation might be worth $50 billion, according to preliminary estimates.
The auto industry is Mobileye’s main source of revenue. The industry index, which measures demand for technology and road transportation, has increased by about 30% in the last year.
6. Unimaginable Foods
Impossible Foods is the next brand to go public. The company, which was founded in 2011, creates organic meats and cheeses from plants using an artificial blood substitute.
The company’s current market capitalisation is $6.88 billion. It received this estimate at the November investment round.
Essentially, all of the most anticipated jobs are technology firms, with only one person from our top tier working in product development.
This is not to say that only one industry is in the lead: there is a common interest in video games, artificial intelligence, fintech and cloud technologies.
