Houzz IPO? Anyone know anything?

As an early employee (have now left) I have been waiting patiently for any indication of a future Houzz IPO.

The Richard Wong CFO hire a year ago seemed promising. Pinterest’s successful IPO recently also seems like a good sign. But wondering if ANYONE has an insight?

Any chatter on the internal front?

      I don’t have options. I exercised when I left. I own shares. And enough that any kind of positive liquidation event would be life changing.

      Ever heard of reverse split?

      Sure. What’s your point? Houzz issued a 1:10 forward stock split in May, 2016.

      *Any outlet that reported a 10:1 reverse split was wrong. I received confirmation of a forward split via email. Houzz did so to reduce private share price as it had climbed to ~$75 prior to their Series E.

      Is this some sort of effort to ascertain who I am? None of this information is relevant to you OR my question.

    Why not sell on secondary market instead of waiting for IPO?

      Ironclad transfer restrictions. Many, many people have tried this route to no avail.

      Unfortunately I do not. Been a long time since I left. There are a couple good threads on here with new grads posting TC structure including RSU packages.
