"The public markets are increasingly more discerning about the fundamental health of unicorns. Still, for recent IPOs, top-line growth remains highly correlated to a company's valuation. In fact, the public markets have continued to be receptive to high-growth companies with operating losses. Out of 21 US VC-backed tech IPOs in 2019, seven entered the public markets with a $10B+ market cap on the first day close, compared to just 2 in the previous three years combined. Of course, share prices have tumbled for some of these IPOs, an important reminder that that those seeking to go public shouldn't ignore the importance of demonstrating a clear path to profitability."

Our analysis of single-class and dual-class companies provides new insights to help investors and founders understand the effects of these corporate decisions."
