REPORT: SPOTIFY HAS FILED FOR AN IPO (UPDATE)

Spotify filed IPO documents with the SEC at the end of December, according to an Axios report.

Spotify is looking to make a direct listing instead of a standard IPO, which would require upfront fees and a dog-and-pony show to interest investors. Spotify has not commented on the report.

It has been long rumored that Spotify wants to hit the market in the first quarter, and securing deals with the three majors last year was seen as one of the final hurdles to the timing of the IPO. The lawsuit from Wixen for $1.6b might throw a wrench into the plans, but it may just be an added risk factor for investors to consider.
