NerdWallet Drops S-1, rumored to be valued at $5B

NerdWallet has dropped an S-1, all but solidifying that it will go public barring any last minute surprises. 

The SF-based company, which produces financial management content that funnels users to its spend management products, “had revenue of $181.6 million. In the six month period ended June 30, 2020, the company said it had revenue of $137.3 million,” according to MarketWatch

It will be trading under the ticker symbol “NRDS,” and according to sources who spoke to Yahoo! Finance, NerdWallet is seeking a $5 billion valuation. Its last known valuation as a private company was $505 million as part of its $5 million Series A announced in 2015 (eons in startup time).

It’s incredibly reliant on Google to succeed. So reliant, in fact, NerdWallet points it out in its “Risk Factors Summary” of the S-1.
