    I hope this doesn't ultimately lead to pressure, from new investors, to cut costs and downgrade quality.

    55 million in sales, with current stock trends...I predict a 1.2 billion float!

    And I'm only half joking..

    Guess it entirely depends on how many shares they intend to offer in the IPO, has to be said that Fractal Design is rather limited though compared to say Corsair Gaming (which is trading 2-3 times higher than the initial IPO listing back in September). They have a rather niche limited product range in comparison, so unless they branch out into other areas I think the growth rate is optimistic from my own personal point of view.

    It usually does eventually, but how quickly remains to be seen. If they use the model of non-voting shares then it might be ok. The problem comes when the investors get voting rights and only vote to maximise dividends/hostile takeover at the expense of anything else.

    Re: Fractal Design announces Nasdaq IPO plans

    Ughhh. I've long been a fan of Fractal for both the quality of their products and their support. It will be sad if the faceless shareholder monster turns them into yet another PC component manufacturer who allow quality to degrade whilst selling on the strength of their brand name. Hopefully that doesn't happen...

    i echo that, love fractal cases, quality is above most on the market in my opinion.

    Even if it follows just the trick Corsair pulled, that's more than enough to get involved!
