Reddit tăng 48% trong ngày giao dịch đầu tiên

sự ra mắt của công ty truyền thông xã hội trên Sở giao dịch chứng khoán New York là đợt phát hành cổ phiếu lần đầu ra công chúng về công nghệ lớn đầu tiên trong năm

Shares of the social media company began trading on the New York Stock Exchange at $47 after pricing at $34 on Wednesday in its initial public offering (ra mắt công chúng). The stock continued to rise before closing at $50.44. The pop put Reddit’s market capitalization (vốn hóa thị trường) at about $9.5 billion, slightly below the $10 billion it was valued at in the private markets (thị trường tư nhân) three years ago.

The listing is a milestone on a long road for Reddit, which was founded in 2005 in San Francisco. The site is best known for its message boards, where users can congregate on forums known as subreddits to research and discuss everything from parenting to power washing to Labrador retrievers. Over the years, the company struggled (công ty chật vật) through many of the issues facing the largest social media firms, such as how to moderate speech (phát ngôn) and make money.

On Wednesday, Astera Labs, an artificial intelligence company (công ty trí tuệ nhân tạo), rose 72 percent in its first day of trading on the stock market (thị trường chứng khoán), which combined with Reddit’s debut could encourage other private tech companies to go public. Those include Rubrik, a cloud data management company; SeatGeek, a ticketing provider; and ServiceTitan, a software company for home services.

One of the biggest winners of Reddit’s public offering was the Newhouse family, the media dynasty that controls Condé Nast through its holding company, Advance Publications. The Newhouses were set to reap a windfall of roughly $1.4 billion from the approximately 30 percent stake they own of Reddit. Other major shareholders include Tencent, the Chinese internet company, and Sam Altman, the chief executive of OpenAI.
