Hopper, based in Montreal, was founded in 2007 by CEO Frederic LaLonde, Joost Ouwerkerk and Dakota Smith. The company, which was valued at a little more than $3.5 billion in 2021, is one of the largest online travel agencies in North America with a reported 80 million downloads of its free app. Like Kayak, Expedia, and Priceline, the company functions as a flight price search engine: it pulls in flight pricing from all the airlines to show customers which have the cheapest fares.

In November, Hopper announced that it had secured a $96 million investment from credit-card company Capital One, which previously led Hopper’s Series F round that raised $170 million in March 2021.

These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.
