About Klaviyo, Inc.
Klaviyo is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) firm that provides a marketing automation solution for businesses. They claim to use machine learning and artificial intelligence to collate and store data from various sources, which can then be analysed on Klaviyo’s platform. This functionality then enables Klaviyo’s customers to create unique experiences for their own clients and send them personalised messages.
Klaviyo’s clients are mainly small and medium-sized businesses in retail and eCommerce sectors. Klaviyo has benefitted from a strategic partnership with Shopify ($SHOP), who took a stake in the company. The majority of Klaviyo’s revenue-earning customers use Shopify. Established players in the sector include Salesforce ($CRM), Adobe ($ADBE) and Oracle ($ORCL).
Klaviyo is used by over 130,000 brands across at least 80 countries. Recent financial results have shown a positive trend, with net income reaching US$15m on revenues of US$321m for H1 2023. The same period last year saw a loss of US$25m on revenues of US$208m. In an environment with higher interest rates, investors are putting more emphasis on profitability measures rather than growth potential.
On the back of the new listings such as ARM ($ARM) and Instacart ($CART), there’s a cautious feeling of optimism emerging around the IPO market on Wall Street. While the valuations of these firms might not have exceeded those experienced in their latest venture capital rounds, investors also appear to have tempered expectations for rapid growth from new tech listings.
