Will Spotify's IPO be a hit? Plus, it wants people to know that it doesn't need to raise more cash - it's doing just fine.

A Spotify spokesman later confirmed the IPO date.

The company said its free tier, which artists and music labels at one time said devalued music, is used to bring in more users, glean data from them to improve products and then eventually convert some onto its paid tier.

Indeed, Spotify stated that it's well capitalized, has positive free cash flow, and has zero debt once it exchanges its convertible notes.

It did not turn a profit in 2017 losing €1.24bn higher than the 2016 result of €539m.

He went on, "Comparisons with our neighbouring countries show that in Belgium we are experiencing a slightly slower increase.We predict further growth of this service, in particular thanks to the strength of local artists".

The goal of this public offering, according to Spotify, is simply to "offer liquidity for shareholders".

It instead will directly list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange, allowing its founders to maintain control and avoiding the cost of Wall Street underwriters.

Spotify, in a filing to U.S. regulators, said that is had a 42 percent share of the global market in streaming in revenue terms in 2016.

Spotify's current valuation is now above $20bn, according to some recent private share trades between investors in the company. Spotify is still the undisputable lead in this market as well. It has hired brokerage Morgan Stanley to match buy and sell orders to set its opening trading price and said it will provide financial guidance to investors on March 26.

"The opportunity here is about growth for us and growth for everyone", Cue said, adding that a huge gap exists between the number of people who can afford to pay for music services and those who do.

At the investor event Thursday, Spotify execs talked up its global scale, brand awareness, algorithmic music curation and tools provided for music creators to connect with fans. In other words, it's not hanging with the financial elites - it wants everyone to be part of the conversation. "It is our belief that the wisdom of crowds trumps expert intervention and that the market price for Spotify will find equilibrium through natural market forces". "I think the traditional model of taking a company public isn't a good fit for us".

Ahead of its IPO on April 3, the company outlined its upcoming plans in an investor presentation.
