Fiverr IPO: Stock gains 90%. Anything there for us sellers?


Recommended Posts

I think inspiration is probably the best thing to take from it.
Rather than being someone who asks “Can I get a piece of that?” when you see someone’s success, look at what you might do to achieve your own success. Looking at some old interviews with Fiverr’s CEO, it is interesting to see how the company began; out of a place of frustration with what was already there and then the idea “to make hiring a freelancer as easy as buying on Amazon”.

What frustrates you? Is there something you think could or should be done better? Remember, at the time Fiverr began in 2010 there were already hundreds of freelancer sites out there.

I didn’t know they were going public, i would have invested a couple grand.

I would have used $50,000 but wasn’t aware of when it would be.

The thing is that when it’s an IPO it can take time to get the purchase made on the NY stock exchange and it might not happen right away until after it goes up.

So many are trying to buy it at the same time it could be hours later after it goes up when your order is placed. Still would be worth it though.

That would have gotten you a $47,500 gain in one day.

It depends on what price I could have gotten it at. You never really know in an IPO the first day. It’s going up so fast but still would have made a lot.

I don’t like holding on to stock though so probably would have day traded it.

I wonder who those people are up there in that picture. I bet they made a lot. The one in black tee shirt might be Micha. Worlds’ newest billionaire. Or maybe the one in the suit.

The blond looks like Red Horracks the voiceover artist here.

The brunette on the end looks like the lady in the last ad.

Just wondering if any of you have received any communication from Fiverr before or on this historical day?? Since we the sellers have contributed a lot to their success. 🙂

They were probably invited and given tickets and hotel rooms to be there for a celebration and PR possibly but who knows. It would be nice to see the names of them somewhere.

I only found out fiverr used to name “Gainbox” at the very beginning…

Check this tweet out by another co-founder of fiverr Shai Wininger below:

Today, my baby @fiverr, which was born as a scrappy #bootstrap #startup, and raised to take its first steps in the living room of my old apartment, becomes $FVRR (#NYSE:#FVRR). Funny, just found this old pic (Aug 2009) of my old Mac showing the first ever Fiverr #design ...

Yeah, it is Micha and the rest are buyers and sellers (says so in the video).

I think that is Redd there in front center and the other face I recognize is Vasily17 - man in the back left with hair to one side. He has an amazing operation going on Fiverr with hundreds of repeat buyers ongoing and a whole team who work with him.

Just watched that video and some interesting stuff there.

I wonder was Micha distracted by the price going up by about $2.20 in that 6 minute video 😃

He has so much $ at this point he probably doesn’t think about it.

I noticed Redd was the one to actually make the bell ring. The guy on the end seems to be looking at the girl next to him. No he’s looking at Micha. I wish I knew who they all were. They all seem interesting.

They may have been able to buy into the pre IPO stock sales.

Those are special shares available only to important people before it goes public, and they are sure to make a lot. They are cheaper than the opening price. They might have gotten them for $18 a share for example.

Maybe. It is worth noting that they go on about Fiverr not being profitable at the moment though

I don’t know how that’s possible if they had $75,000,000 in revenue last year. I doubt that part about not being profitable means he isn’t making a good income. Or that his stock didn’t just earn him a lot. I’m tempted to get their prospectus.

I don’t even understand how an unprofitable company gets on the NY stock exchange.

Uber is not profitable, made a 3 billion dollar loss last year and 4 billion the year before.

Many big companies are invested in and raise funding with the idea that they will eventually become massively profitable.
