This is Vizio’s second try at an IPO, following its first in 2015.


The company, started by Chairman and CEO William Wang, makes flat screen TVs and speakers. More recently, it has evolved into a media company with a fast-growing advertising and streaming division called Platform+.


Vizio total net revenue in 2020 increased 11% from a year earlier to $2.04 billion. Net income in 2020 was $102.48 million, up from $23.09 million in the prior year.
