The company’s June quarter revenue was US$117.8 million, about a 24% increase year-over-year for the six months ended June 30, 2021, it said in the filing. However, its net income fell by 77% YoY to US$3.2 million due to the higher operating expenses during the period. Clearwater is targeting a valuation of US$4.0 billion for the IPO, Reuters reported.
