Here’s what potential investors need to know about a possible Peloton IPO.

  • The company is looking to raise $500 million through the IPO.
  • However, this is likely only proxy number that the company has in place while it measures interest.
  • The company’s most recent year saw it report revenue of $915.00 million.
  • That much better than its 2017 revenue of $218.60 million and 2018 revenue of $435.00 million.
  • However, this larger revenue also comes with wider losses.
  • Peloton notes that its net losses for 2019 were $195.60 million.
  • For comparison, the company’s net losses for 2017 and 2018 were $71.10 million and $47.90 million, respectively.
  • That’s likely a red flag for investors, but there’s more.
  • The Peloton IPO filing warns that the company may never “achieve or maintain profitability in the future.”
  • Peloton also notes that part of its strategy for the future is to grow its membership while retaining its current members.
  • While that sounds nice, it could be a problem for the company due to its target audience.
  • The fitness company sells premium exercise equipment that isn’t something the average individual will have in their homes.
  • That includes its $2,000 exercise bikes and $4,000 treadmills.
  • It also sells subscription memberships that give customers access to its workout sessions.
  • These are displayed to the customers via the HD screens that are equipped on the workout devices.
