Reddit’s Trailblazing Stock Debut


Reddit, one of the leading social news aggregator platforms, marked its trading debut on Thursday. The strong market momentum embraced Reddit’s powerful launch, giving its shares a soaring price threshold. Reddit shares closed 48% above their initial price, taking the firm’s valuation to a whopping $9 billion. 

Dubbed the most anticipated launch of the year, Reddit was planning to go public early on and was working on crafting a strategic launch two years ago. The firm initially filed for an IPO in December 2021 but could not launch the idea due to volatile market conditions. 

Per The Guardian, Reddit’s stocks have actively been explored and bought by leading market giants in the corporate sector. The firm’s major shareholders include Tencent, Fidelity, and OpenAI. These three corporate behemoths own 11%, 9.5%, and 8% of the firm’s stock respectively.
