Snowflake is a cloud-data storage firm that debuted to the public in a September IPO, pricing its shares at $US120. The firm raised $US3.4 billion at a valuation of $US33 billion in its IPO, making it the largest software IPO in history.
As of Tuesday’s intraday high of $US429, Snowflake had staged a 258% rally since going public. Snowflake was valued at just $US12 billion in February when it completed its last private funding round, meaning those investors have registered a 10 times gain if they held their shares through today.
For context, IBM currently has a market capitalisation of $US112 billion, while AMD is worth $US111 billion.
Snowflake’s first public earnings report earlier this month revealed triple digit revenue growth for the company, though the firm is not yet profitable.
According to data from YahooFinance, average analyst estimates expect Snowflake to record $US579 million in revenue for the full year. IBM is expected to generate $US74 billion in revenue this year, while AMD is expected to do $US9.5 billion in revenue this year, according to analyst estimates.
