Taboola went public last year via a SPAC merger at a $2.6 billion valuation, but currently has a market cap of just $590 million. Nevertheless, Taboola has displayed some impressive growth recently, registering Gross Profit of $116.4 million and GAAP Net Loss of just $5.0 million in the second quarter of 2022.

The company expects to end 2022 with revenue of $1.45 billion and $595-$615 million in ex-TAC Gross Profit.
