GoPro was valued at up to $2.96 billion USD
GoPro Inc.'s initial public offering was recently priced at $24 per share, according to a report from
Wearable camera company GoPro, which makes the Hero brand of portable cameras worn by many athletes and adventure seekers, was valued at up to $2.96 billion USD. The company's IPO generated about $427.2 million USD, and distributed 17.8 million Class A shares.
GoPro said it will use the proceeds from the offering for debt repayment and investment purposes. As of March 31, GoPro had about $110.7 million USD in debt. The company’s 2013 sales topped $985 million (a nearly 90 percent increase from the year before), and net income nearly doubled from $32 million in 2012 to $61 million for 2013.
GoPro is the first consumer electronic company to go public since headphones maker Skullcandy Inc. in 2011, and its shares are currently trading at around $31.

$61M on $935M of revenue is terrible.
A 6.2% YoY growth is far from
and mostly in line with the tech sector average. Rule of thumb is if your growth exceeds inflation (~2% in the USA) you're sustainable.
Not everybody has Intel and Apple growth.

That and on day 1 of IPO the stock is up 32% with about 30 minutes until the market closes.
