Hell, the company is profitable while scaling, an unusual sight among current innovation IPOs.
We care about the Global-e IPO because it’s a venture-backed former startup. Reading its filing, we can see that Red Dot Capital Partners has a material stake. Logistics huge DHL likewise put money into the business, in addition to cash handled by Apax Partners and Vitruvian Partners, both personal equity gamers.
Regardless, here’s a company that represents a bucket of personal cash going public during a duration of extensive flotation activity. Let’s get familiarized with what it does, go into its numbers and include it to our IPO list.
Remember that Roblox is expected to start trading tomorrow and Coupan on Thursday, after pricing Wednesday. Olo will price and trade next week. Coinbase is someplace in the wings ahead of its own direct listing. And there are others: It’s going to be a routine IPO run for the next couple of weeks, not counting the other filings that will definitely drop.
So let’s get our heads around Global-e. Into the tables!
