Airbnb ended up raising $3.5 billion

Airbnb skyrockets 112% in public market debut, giving it a market cap of $86.5 billion. Airbnb opened at $146 per share on its first day of trading on Thursday, more than doubling the $68 per share price set for its IPO the day before

In the founder letter included with Airbnb’s prospectus, Chief Executive Brian Chesky said the company had intended to go public 
earlier this year, before the COVID19 pandemic lockdowns destroyed travel — and 80% of its business — and it was forced to cut costs drastically, including laying off about 1,900 people, or 25% of its workforce. A few months later, though, the company saw a rebound as stay-at-home restrictions eased. Airbnb has benefited from travelers preferring to stay in homes instead of hotels as coronavirus concerns persist, a trend the company expects to continue.

Chesky said the company has seen a change in the way people travel, which is supported by the findings of Cardify, a market research firm that surveyed consumers and found that they are going on last-minute trips, or are using Airbnbs to isolate or work remotely. Airbnb’s share of lodging spending has risen from 19% last year to about 33% this year, according to Cardify’s data.

The company’s rebound is going better than that of other travel-booking sites. Its third-quarter revenue fell 32% year over year, compared with declines of 58% for Expedia and 48% for Booking.

“Relative to the hotel industry, Airbnb offers a differentiated product that appeals to a lot of people,” said James Gellert, chief executive of Rapid Ratings, a company that assesses the finances of private and public companies.

As for profitability, Airbnb lost more money in the first nine months of the year than it lost all of last year. In its prospectus, it said it has incurred losses in each year since its inception and warned that it may not achieve profitability.
Other risk factors for the company include regulatory concerns, some of which are related to its effects on neighborhoods, housing 
prices and more.

Airbnb “may face legislative attempts and [pushback from] communities but it won’t derail investor exuberance,” said Eric Schiffer, CEO thePatriarch Organization, a private equity firm.

The company’s offering follows that of food-delivery app maker DoorDash Inc. DASH, another San Francisco company, on Wednesday, and other companies that have gone public and taken advantage of investors’ insatiable appetite for IPOs this year.
