The Utah-based company, which provides software services including communications and payment tools to SMBs, last raised $125 million at a valuation of about $1.5 billion. That deal was announced in April 2020.

Podium CEO Eric Ree told bloomberg That the company has “over $100 million in annual recurring revenue.” Nerdshala confirmed the metric with the company, though Podium declined to be more specific about its current ARR.


podium first Reached $50 Million ARR Mark Around the time of its $60 million Series B in November 2018. And we know it climbed to $100 million ARR at the end of 2019. it questions how high The $100 million ARR mark podium is rather important today — we can’t effectively calculate the company’s growth rate without up-to-date figures.

The company declined to share growth targets for 2021 or answer our question whether it expects to match this year’s growth rate in 2022.

The company also declined to share the timing of the IPO plan or notes on any notable changes in its economics. Podium just wanted to talk about its new fundraising and valuation today in addition to some very non-GAAP figures, such as how many “local businesses” use its service.

Given that we’re going to see the results for the podium’s current performance inside its final S-1 filing, why not tell us now?
