Poshmark has filed for IPO

(Bloomberg) — Poshmark Inc., an online resale marketplace for second-hand clothing, filed for an initial public offering, disclosing revenue gains and a profit during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Redwood City, California-based company in its filing Thursday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission listed the size of the offering as $100 million, a placeholder that will likely change.

More than 70 million Poshmark users have sold more than 130 million items with a combined value exceeding $4 billion, the company said in its filing.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, Poshmark said it had net income of $21 million on revenue of $193 million, compared with a net loss of $34 million on revenue of $150 million during the same period in 2019.
