Reddit IPO Alerts
Rumoured Reddit IPO - register for updates
Reddit shares could start trading on the US stock market via an initial public offering (IPO) in the future.
Founded in 2005, Reddit is a social media platform which allows users to discuss a vast array of subjects on forums called subreddits. It's home to thousands of conversations about topics ranging from serious matters like news, politics and science to niche memes about cats that stand up. Over 52 million people use it daily.
The company has recently confidentially filed for an IPO with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, though further details are still to be announced.
IPOs can offer exciting opportunities - it’s often the first chance to invest in a major, global brand. But they often happen very quickly, with little notice.
Overseas IPOs aren’t typically open to UK private investors. So we expect the first chance for UK investors to buy shares in Reddit will be when they start trading on the exchange. Sign up for our alerts to stay up to date with the latest news, including:
- If Reddit confirms its IPO plans
- If you can take part in the IPO
- When and how you can buy Reddit shares
You’ll also get helpful tips and information on what to think about when investing in IPOs, plus news on selected other interesting IPOs.
Our IPO alerts service is for people who understand the risks of investing in equities, it is not personal advice. You should only consider investing if you’re free from significant debt (other than a mortgage) and have sufficient savings in an easily accessible account to cover for emergencies.
HL clients can buy Reddit shares once they're listed on the stock market and enabled for UK settlement by CREST, the UK’s depository for electronic shares. This is outside of our control and may not take place on the first day of trading.
Investing in IPOs and individual companies isn’t right for everyone. It’s a higher-risk way to invest your money. When a company first lists on the stock market its share price can rise and fall quickly. The value of your investment depends on the fate of that company. If it fails, you risk losing your whole investment. Investors should make sure they understand the companies they’re investing in, the company specific risks, and make sure any businesses they own are held as part of a diversified portfolio. All investments and any income they produce will rise and fall in value, so you could make a loss. If you’re not sure of an investment's suitability for your circumstances, please speak to a financial adviser.
