Liquid Death was founded in 2019 by Mike Cessario. In July 2023, The Information reported: "Liquid Death, the irreverent water brand backed by venture capitalists, has hired Goldman Sachs to lead a potential IPO as soon as next spring, according to a person familiar with the matter. The decision follows one of the few IPO “bake-offs”—the process by which banks vie for IPO business by pitching companies on how they would sell their stock to Wall Street investors—by a venture-backed company this year." While Liquid Death is rumored to go public in 2024, the company has not yet had an IPO.

Liquid Death is a non-alcoholic beverage brand that creates products ranging from iced tea to sparkling water. Per Forge data, Liquid Death has raised a total of $200.6 million in funding over 7 rounds. Their latest funding was raised on Oct 3, 2022, from a Series D round. Key investors include Live Nation Entertainment, Science, Velvet Sea Ventures, and Dwight Funding.

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