DoorDash, the biggest meal-delivery company in the U.S., released its confidential IPO details in an SEC filing today. The DoorDash IPO is expected by year-end.
Shares could pop 30% – 50% in day #1 of trading. And that’s why these Silicon Valley insiders are BUYING DoorDash Pre-IPO shares.
The DoorDash IPO will be one of the biggest IPOs of 2020.
In the DoorDash IPO, the company plans to raise $2 billion from investors, according to a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission.
In June the company raised $400 million in capital from Durable Capital, T. Rowe Price and Fidelity.
That financing gave DoorDash a valuation of $16 billion.
Fidelity and T. Rowe Price knew DoorDash planned to go public in an IPO in 2020.
In fact, the company had already filed its confidential IPO paperwork with the SEC back in February. Yet instead of waiting for the Doordash IPO – these firms invested millions and bought Pre-IPO shares.
The latest DoorDash filing doesn’t reveal the company’s expected market value. Yet the DoorDash IPO valuation could be at least $20 billion – a 25% premium to the June Pre-IPO.
The valuation of DoorDash has been soaring in the last couple years. Just check out this chart . . .
SharesPost reports that the private value of DoorDash shares was $27 per share in 2018. And as recently as June the share price was $229.
That’s a remarkable 733% increase in just over two years!
