Housing rental site Airbnb wants to raise the price of the shares to be issued at the expected IPO to 56 to 60 dollars each. People in the Department report that to Bloomberg. This could bring the value of the company to 42 billion dollars. Previously, it was estimated at 35 billion dollars.
The price of the shares was previously 44 to 50 dollars each, according to sources, who want to remain anonymous because the details of the stock exchange are not yet public. The company does not have to provide that information until it is published when it goes public.
Airbnb announced earlier that it would go public in December, allegedly taking advantage of the strong recovery of recent months. Airbnb has benefited from the fear of many travellers to stay in hotels during the pandemic crisis. With the IPO, Airbnb hopes to raise some $ 3 billion.
