Pivotree Files for IPO on TSX Venture

Posted on September 29, 2020 by Mathieu Litalien

StockTrades Take:

On September 28, Pivotree filed a preliminary prospectus in which it applied to list its shares on TSX Venture. Pivotree is an eCommerce company which aims to "accelerate the future of frictionless commerce".

The company has more than 170 clients worldwide and has 6 offices in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. In 2019 it generated $59.7 million in revenue, of which 72% is recurring revenue growth. 

In 2019, it managed more than $35 billion in GMV and over $9 billion in sales. The $35 billion accounts for 0.9% of all eCommerce GMV generated in North America. 

The company intends to organically by increasing current customer volumes, landing new customers and international expansion. 

Between 2017-2019, the company grew revenue by 98% annually. Granted, the growth rate has been slowing. In 2019, revenue grew by 19.8% and through the first six months of 2020, growth has slowed to 8%. Even though recurring revenue has grown by more than 14% in 2020, it is far below the growth rate of others in the eCommerce industry. 

Will this be an IPO worth looking into? It all depends on valuation. The preliminary prospectus did not include any expected pricing details, and no timelines. Once we the final prospectus and pricing details are released, we will provide our thoughts on the expected valuations.
