Knightscope Goes Public, Plunges, Then Rockets, Then Falls

By John Honovich, Published Jan 31, 2022, 09:16am EST (Info+)

On its first day of NASDAQ trading, Knightscope's stock plunged 40%, but on the second day, it rocketed up and in weekend after-hours trading the stock is now trading at more than twice what it went public at.

IPVM Image

The company has been heavily criticized by IPVM for its poor fundamentals (e.g. Knightscope Robots 'In Network' Decline While Accumulated Deficit Grows To $92.3 million, Knightscope Sells Just 1 Net New Robot In 6 Months, Knightscope Adds Just 2 Total Customers In Past Year, Yet Raising Money at $300 Million Valuation).

However, the company has shown that its prowess of convincing retail investors has extended from its crowdfunding campaigns now to the public market.

Inside this note, we examine Knightscope going public, stock price trends, its still woeful fundamentals, and its potential for future growth (revenue and/or investments).
