Spotify stock listing: still not self-financing, but prospects appear good

Thursday 15 March 2018 | 12:37 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Spotify is expected to list on the stock market in the first week of April, through a direct listing. That means no new shares will be sold. The company is still loss-making and not self-financing, but is market leader and can grow in a number of areas. However, the competition is intensifying. It remains highly dependent on the major music labels (Sony, Universal, Warner), but Spotify is big enough to have some negotiating power. Trading in the company's stock is likely to be volatile, especially in the beginning.
