Popular company in the private markets over the past few years. There's been a lot of demand from investors. And that demand is certainly carrying over into the public markets, as we're seeing, as the valuation has been continually marked up. And it's just pretty wild to see that a company that was raising capital at a $16 billion valuation just over the summer is now being priced at about a $38 billion valuation. So very eager to see how the public market actually trades these shares once they're available later today.22 March 2021
