In an attempt to boost the Snapchat stock value before the IPO, Snap Inc. is aggressively trying to grow its revenue.
Snapchat reportedly wants $100 million to $200 million in ad-spending commitments from the following firms:
- WPP Plc.
- Omnicom Group Inc.
- Publicis Groupe SA
- Interpublic Group of Cos.
If Snapchat closes all the deals, the company could generate between $400 million and $800 million in revenue from just four advertisers in 2017.
Snap was already projected to generate $936 million in revenue this year.
So signing all four deals could push revenue into the billions for 2018.
That's impressive, considering Snapchat was expected to generate a total of $367 million in revenue for 2016.
And because revenue is expected to skyrocket, the Snapchat IPO is the most hyped public offering of 2017.
