On Monday, it raised the size of its IPO offering to 45 million shares, now expecting to raise $1.8 billion and targeting a valuation of $7 billion. Operating in a competitive market with low barriers to entry, Bumble was profitable on an EBITDA basis in the first three quarters of 2020, with growth accelerating in the most recent quarter. The filing reveals its average monthly userbase has 42 million, out of which 2.4 million are paying users.

The company offers loan origination and servicing, while focusing on mortgage and unsecured personal loans. Although it is fast growing and profitable, it operates in a highly cyclical industry and if we are to judge by recent mortgage lenders that went public, there probably won't be much of a reception.
