Every day, music-streaming company Spotify looks a little more serious about going public.
The company received a $200 million credit facility, which is a step towards an initial public offering (IPO), according to reports from the Financial Times and other outlets. Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley reportedly worked on the deal.
Stockholm-based Spotify declined to comment.
Banks want to underwrite IPOs, and they can entice growing companies by offering a big line of credit. It’s a sign of a potential public bid, as is a search for someone with financial reporting experience, which Spotify reportedly conducted last month.
Spotify carried a valuation north of $4 billion after its $250 million funding round, which was reported in November.
