Spotify IPO… Next Big Thing Or Next Big Flop?

Spotify IPO… Next Big Thing Or Next Big Flop?

It seems like we just got past all the hype around the Snap IPO as the company went public in March of this year. Since then, many tech investors have been eyeing Spotify which is expected to announce an Initial Public Offering before the end of 2017. The music streaming app is popular and has strong branding, but the company has sustained recent losses. Some analysts are unsure if an IPO would be a good move. Reportedly, the music industry’s licensing fees make it difficult for media companies like Spotify to be profitable. Could this be a huge payoff for investors… or a huge loss?
