Airbnb’s widely rumored $475 million funding round is now official: The company confirmed the raise in a public SEC filing today.
Named within the filing are previous investors Alfred Lin of Sequoia Capital and Jeff Jordan of Andreessen Horowitz. No investors from TPG, the previously reported leader of the round, were mentioned. VentureBeat has reached out to all three firms involved for further comment on the matter.
Founded in 2008, Airbnb has faced numerous legal battles in recent years. The city of Barcelona, for example, slapped Airbnb with a $40,000 fine last month for “illegal” rentals. The company has faced somewhat similar scrutiny in New York and San Francisco.
The new capital, raised in April, brings Airbnb’s total funding to $801 million. Prior to this round, Airbnb had raised $326 million over the course of five years.
Here’s the SEC filing, in full:
