Vizio’s filing comes as the nearly 20-year-old firm evolves from a hardware maker for TVs to all-out media company, using its TVs to connect advertisers with viewers. The company in its filing credited the success of its devices to what is now “a massive growth opportunity for us.”  

Last year proved a boon for Vizio with total net revenue of $2.04 billion, up 11% from the prior year. Net income in 2020 totaled $102.48 million, up from $23.09 million in 2019.
