first_img For the team at Snap Inc., Snapchat’s parent company, the future’s so bright they’ve gotta wear shades. It’s also so bright that their IPO is expected to value the company at somewhere between $20 and $25 billion.Earlier this year, Snapchat secured nearly $2 billion in additional funding. As of 11 months ago, they had roughly 110 million active daily users. By late spring, it’s believed Snapchat was barrelling down the track toward nearly 150 million.Most tech observers think that explosive growth has made Snapchat bigger than Twitter, at least regarding daily users… and that’s more important than the total size of the user base to investors. Even if they’re mostly sending nudie pics to each other.Snapchat has a massive deal in place with the NFL. NBC brought the Rio Olympics to Snapchat. Viacom got on board back in February with another content-sharing deal. Big media is clearly bullish on the Snapchat platform, and now, Snap has unleashed its first hardware product, the camera-equipped Spectacles, to very positive early reviews.It really shouldn’t surprise anyone that they’re expecting people to line up and throw bags of money at them once they start offering shares to the public.$25 billion sounds huge, and it is… It was back in 2013 when Twitter wound up in the same neighborhood, but that honeymoon ended rather abruptly. Snap will have to work to avoid meeting with the same fate.And while $25 billion is huge it’s not even in the same galaxy as the Alibaba IPO from 2014. The Chinese e-commerce titan racked up a $168 billion valuation when it went public. That’s supervillain-ransoming-the-moon money.
