In the present situation, it seems that Noom will consider going public when the market gets back to normal. Increased volatility is being witnessed in the market due to fears of interest rates hike.
In May 2021, Noom reportedly raised US$ 540 million in a funding round led by Silver Lake and achieved a valuation of US$ 3.7 billion. The company is backed by Sequoia Capital, Temsasek, and Samsung Ventures.
Noom has raised US$ 657.3 million in funding to date, and it remains a private company. It does not trade publicly, and as a result, retail investors cannot buy this digital health stock.
Established in 2008, Noom was founded by Saeju Jeong and Artem Petakov as they were not satisfied with the American healthcare system. Noom's application is subscription-based, and it tracks an individual's food consumption and exercise habits.
Nooms claims that it has helped millions of users achieve their health and wellness goals through its technology and human coaching.
