Wall Street awards 5 stars! Yelp jumps 60% at IPO, currently worth $1.43B

Review site Yelp, which has turned into a ubiquitous guide to restaurants, opened 60 percent above its strike price of $15 today, valuing the company at $1.43 billion or roughly 17 times its annual revenue.

That’s not bad for a business with only $83 million in revenue last year, on which it managed to lose a record high $16.86 million.
