LifeStance is a US company based in Scottsdale, Arizona that was founded in 2017. The business operates outpatient care facilities all over the United States, focusing specifically on mental health services to individuals of all ages.
LifeStance Health Group made its trading debut on 10 June 2021 in a highly anticipated initial public offering (IPO). The flotation raised $720 million with the company selling 40 million shares at $18 each. The LFST stock price trades under the NASDAQ ticker symbol LFST.
LifeStance is also backed by TPG Capital, a private equity firm with around $103 billion in assets. TPG acquired a majority interest in Lifestance Health in March 2020. The IPO valued LifeStance Health Group at over $7 billion.
LifeStance Health Group IPO seems particularly well-timed, given the increasing focus on mental health during the COVID-19 global pandemic. LifeStance Health also offers digital telehealth services.
There is often plenty of initial excitement when IPOs are announced, but equally often that enthusiasm quickly wanes – some companies see their share price fall just days after going public. That doesn’t seem to be the case with LFST. The LifeStance Health Group share price closed up at $21.90 on its first day of trading – that’s an impressive increase of 21.67%. The stock price has since shown a solid base at $20, which is good news for those invested in the IPO.
While the LFST IPO was clearly successful, it’s important to note that the stock could be overvalued. If you are looking for strong profit margins, it’s worth considering that LFST reported a net loss in the first quarter of 2021.
Great growth so far
In the first three months of 2021, LifeStance Health made around $143 million in revenue, according to its filings. These also showed that the company made a net loss of $8.7 million over the same period.
While this number might seem uninspiring for a company valued in the billions, it’s also important to note that this is more revenue than LifeStance Health reported for the whole of 2018. This explosion in growth suggests that the company could have the potential to become a strong player in the mental healthcare sector.
