IPO Report: Blue Apron: 5 things to know as the $2 billion startup goes public

Blue Apron is testing whether Wall Street investors can stomach a $2 billion meal.

The New York-based meal-kit delivery startup filed to go public June 1. It has not yet set a price range and currently plans to raise $100 million, which is likely a placeholder amount. It has applied to list on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “APRN.”

The company will offer Class A shares of common stock with voting rights.

Blue Apron began its service in 2012. In addition to the meal kits, the company launched a wine-pairing service in September 2015, in which the company works with vineyards, wineries and its own winemaker to deliver wine along with the meals.
