It looks like Dropbox is talking to bankers to prep for an IPO, although, a deal isn’t likely to happen until the second half of 2013.
Dropbox is a top file-sharing service that makes it super-easy to store content across any platform, whether from the desktop or mobile devices like Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone. It now has over 100 million users, who save about 1 billion files every day.
All in all, IPO investors are likely to eat up shares of a Dropbox IPO (it looks like the current valuation is about $4 billion). Consider that cloud-based companies have been strong lately, as seen with offerings from companies like Workday (NYSE:WDAY) and ServiceNow (NYSE:NOW).
