Investors in Spotify Technology SA could be in for a turbulent Tuesday as the company uses an unorthodox manoeuvre to go public on the New York Stock Exchange, writes The Wall Street Journal.

The music-streaming company has warned the process, called a direct listing, could result in greater volatility on the first day of trading than in a typical IPO. IPO stands for Initial Public Offering. In part, that is because there isn’t any bank to act as a “stabilizing agent” and prop up the stock if it plunges.

KTH student Alex Ljung and his friend, Eric Walforss, founded Soundcloud back in Sweden 2007. Last summer, when the company was close to bankruptcy, nearly half of the staff were sacked and they closed there officed in London and San Francisco.

Two new financiers, Raine Group in the United States and Temasek in Singapore, put in around $170m who got the boat in float condition again. Now Soundcloud’s CEO Kerry Trainor states in the Financial Times that the company turned the crisis. The number of paying users is increasing and during a few months in 2017, the company show a positive result.

Soundcloud is not aiming to become the new Spotify according to Kerry Trainor.

“Artists were always SoundCloud’s core value, and that is how we need to measure its success,” he says. “How many people are starting their careers on SoundCloud? What SoundCloud needs to prove is it can be the most-used stepping stone between obscurity and stardom.”
