On September 15th, a new coffee company made its debut on the Nasdaq through a traditional IPO by listing 21.5 million shares at…

$23 a share. Dutch Bros Inc. (BROS) raised $556.8 million from the IPO, which is expected to fund its general corporate expenses and repay $198.8 million in outstanding borrowings.

The stock opened at $32.50, up 41.3% above the IPO price on its first trading day, and is presently trading 38% higher, at about $45.

Headquartered in Grants Pass, Oregon, BROS is a franchise operator of drive-through coffee shops that offer hand-crafted beverages with superb service and speed. BROS menu includes a wide variety of beverages such as iced and hot coffee, tea, smoothies, lemonade, as well as other proprietary drinks. The company mostly operates in the Southern and Western parts of the United States with the majority of their location in Oregon, Arizona and California.

In today’s article, I intend to analyze Dutch Bros from a qualitative and quantitative standpoint to see whether BROS stock is still a buy after its post-IPO rally.
