The house always wins, at least when it comes to gaming. For companies engaging in online gaming, Gambling.com (NASDAQ:GAMB) is a company that’s piqued investor interest as of late. Indeed, the Gambling.com initial public offering (IPO) is one investors have been watching closely today.
Today, Gambling.com officially went public via its highly anticipated IPO. Shares opened at the previously announced $8 level. However, today, shares have traded lower, after spiking to an intra-day high of $8.75 per share.
This share price move is interesting, given the reduction in pricing of the GAMB IPO. The company’s initial pricing range for the IPO was $11 to $13. Yesterday, the company revised this range to between $8 and $9.
This sort of IPO pricing isn’t uncommon. Many companies price their IPOs at the lower end of the range to provide more opportunity for a broader array of investors to get in. However, this move signals weak demand for shares by market makers. Additionally, given the rather weak performance of other IPOs recently, investors appear to be on edge with this one today.
That said, there’s a lot to unpack with this company. Let’s dive into a few things investors may want to know about its upcoming IPO.
