Skillz: Back To Earth


  • Wolfpack Research released a short report on Skillz.
  • The recently closed SPAC deal was irrationally priced in the stock market with the market cap soaring above $20 billion at the highs.

The upcoming Skillz (SKLZ) earnings report is important for not only the stock, but also the cooling SPAC space. A lot of the blank-check companies have made business combinations based on aggressive 2025+ revenue targets, yet very few of these companies have reported earnings since going public.

Update - March 19

Skillz sells 32 million shares priced at $24. The company sold 17 million shares to raise $408 million while selling stockholders cashed out 15 million shares. The selling shareholders granted underwriters the option to purchase and additional 4.8 million shares for gross proceeds of $475 million.

For a stock that just went public, shareholders sure want out of the stock. Another massive red flag that Skillz is extremely over valued.
