Folks, you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on this little chunk of news because it’s a doozy. You remember when Netflix spun off Roku into its own company? Well, considering that Roku’s sold over half a million Roku boxes thus far, it’s not too far out of line to say that most everyone wants a piece of that particular action.
So Roku is looking to accommodate the folks who want to buy a chunk of what might be the biggest player in the upcoming format war to date and are looking to offer an IPO.
IPO, in case you don’t follow business terms, stands for Initial Public Offering, and it allows you to be among the first to buy shares of Roku stock.
If you’re interested in this, and I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t be, there’s no date set yet and at last word they hadn’t even picked an investment banker to handle the deal yet, but keep your eyes front, kids–you might own a chunk of the next Google soon.
