Klarna Bank AB (“Klarna”) was founded in 2005 by Sebastian Siemiatkowski, Victor Jacobsson, and Niklas Adalberth. In an interview during TechCrunch Berlin in December 2019, CEO Sebastian Siemiatkowski, without commenting on timing, noted that “an IPO would most likely be happening in the US because there is a bigger understanding of technology companies like us…” These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.
