The RealReal Might be Going for an IPO

Julie Wainwright, CEO of luxury consignment store The RealReal has raised funds for her business several times. She has indicated that she would eventually pursue an IPO but that it would be far into the future. Most likely after a round of private financing. Perhaps now is that time.

Several sources informed Recode that The RealReal is currently seeking to raise 100 million dollars in funding from investors. This amount would be 70 million dollars less than what The RealReal has previously raised, and we are left wondering if this is the pre-IPO round of raising funds. The popularity of the luxury site that focuses on selling luxury goods that have been pre-owned from brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Cartier, and Hermes is a good indicator that The RealReal will succeed in raising the new funds. This new infusion of funds could indicate that The RealReal is getting ready for an IPO.

However, there could be other reasons for The realReal’s newest round of raising funds. It could be that the company seeks to grow larger and needs capital to finance that growth. The RealReal might have analyzed the market and found that there is a demand for pre-owned luxury goods. Alternatively, they could need more capital to prove to investors that The RealReal would work in the long term as a standalone business. So far Wainwright has not commented on the reason for seeking new investors and raising capital.

The RealReal is a consignment store that focuses on selling pre-owned luxury goods. They receive items from the seller and once they have sold the item The RealReal shares 50 to 60 percent of the profits with the original seller. Though The RealReal has an in-house authentication team, a well-made fake has slipped through their authentication system.

The RealReal focused on selling women’s luxury fashion when the company was first founded but has since expanded into selling jewelry, menswear, art, and home décor. The company recently opened a pop-up store in Las Vegas and a brick and mortar location. The RealReal is not the only pre-owned consignment store. ThredUp, Tradesy, and Poshmark all sell pre-owned items. Though each store has a different model for conducting business and some sell new items.

The RealReal is collaborating with luxury brand sellers. The companies that once found The RealReal threatening have now realized that The RealReal is driving sales of their brands.

Rick Scott’s Super PAC Questioned By End Citizens United

The left-leaning PAC, End Citizens United recently made a major splash in the media and across Washington by claiming former Florida Governor Rick Scott was attempting to sidestep campaign finance regulations by using the New Republican PAC to back his campaign for the Senate at the 2018 Midterms. ECU President Tiffany Muller has been a constant campaigner and watchdog for fairer election finance regulations following the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision; among the issues identified by Muller and End Citizens United is the problem of corporate groups given the same campaign financing rights as humans.

Former GOP Governor Rick Scott established the New Republican Super PAC in an attempt to further the work of President Donald Trump among young people but has recently faced a backlash after the goals of the groups were altered to suit his own campaign plans. The New Republican is now being targeted by End Citizens United as leaders of ECU state Scott bypassed the limitations placed on Senate candidates in terms of “testing the waters” donations before candidacy is officially announced.


Paul Bozzi, an End Citizens United official stated he believed Scott was simply looking to bypass financing rules and not fully disclose the depth of the funding he was receiving from special interest groups, mega-donors, and grassroots Republicans. One of the main sticking points for the traditional PAC which limits donations from members to just $5,000 is the fact Scott is still listed as the Chair of the New Republican PAC in a clear flouting of the election financing regulations.

End Citizens United was established in 2015 with a clear aim of bringing to an end the rules changed following the 2010 Citizens United decision which allows almost unlimited financing to be given to candidates during election cycles. Alongside the decision to target the campaign of Rick Scott, ECU is also looking to target a list of donors christened the “Big Money 20” who work closely with special interest groups. The list of Republicans accepting funding from special interest groups was recently updated to add Pennsylvanian Representative Keith Rothfus to its ranks with ECU President Tiffany Muller stating Rothfus was known for placing the needs of special interest groups above those of his constituents.
