Slack chat service is up to 17 billion worth
Slack may have a price tag of 16 billion to 17 billion dollars on his upcoming flotation on June 20 in New York. Initiates reported this about the chat service, which is particularly popular among business users.
During the last financing round in August last year, Slack was valued at more than 7 billion dollars. The current valuation corresponds to a sale of shares to private investors earlier this year, which valued the company at $ 16 billion.
Slack goes to the stock exchange via a direct listing. In addition, no new shares are issued but only existing shares are listed on the stock exchange, so that they can be traded more easily.
