Airbnb has indicated that it will attempt to become a publicly traded company during the 2020 fiscal year. The company made its IPO announcement through a press release, which focused on the company's growth. Airbnb was started in 2008, and since then has expanded into an organization worth over $30 billion. The organization also has more accommodation on offer than many of the world's top hotel companies.
Ahead of its IPO, Airbnb points to a very successful second quarter of 2019. The company states that during this time, Airbnb's revenue totaled over $1 billion. Airbnb previously attempted to become a publicly traded company in 2019, however it has since revised its plans to focus on a 2020 IPO date.
