Here’s everything investors need to know about the ZipRecruiter IPO plans.

  • First off, ZipRecruiter isn’t going about its IPO in the same way as most other companies do.
  • Instead of a normal IPO, the company is going public through a direct listing.
  • This will have the company listing shares of its stock on the New York Stock Exchange under the ZIP ticker.
  • The company also received a reference price of $18 per share for its stock from the NYSE.
  • This values the company at $2.4 billion based on its 133.1 million outstanding shares.
  • That’s below the $3 billion to $5 billion valuation range that ZipRecruiter was initially aiming for.
  • That valuation came from its expectation to list shares publicly for $25.04 each.
  • The ZipRecruiter IPO will see it list Class A shares of its common stock on the market.
  • There are currently 73.8 million Class A shares of ZIP stock.
  • The company also has 30.8 million shares of Class B common stock outstanding.
  • Shares of the Class B stock are convertible to shares of Class A stock at any time.
  • The Class B shares are not being listed on the NYSE alongside Class A shares.
  • ZipRecruiter is a job search engine for connecting employees to employers.
  • It allows companies to list jobs on its platform and people searching for work can find work there.
  • The search engine allows listings for small and medium businesses, as well as those from large corporations.
  • Its job search app is currently the top-rated in its category on both iOS and Android devices.
  • The service was also rated as the #1 hiring site in the U.S. based on G2 satisfaction ratings from March.
