Affirm Prepares IPO That Could Value Fintech Firm at Up to $10 Billion
Affirm Inc. is laying the groundwork for an initial public offering that could value the financial-technology startup at as much as $10 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.
The point-of-sale lender is working with Goldman Sachs Group Inc. on a potential listing, the people said. The preparations are at an early stage and the company may not move forward with one. Affirm could also sell itself, potentially to a so-called blank-check company, they said.
