Snapchat raises $175 Million


Snapchat has raised $175 million in a Series F funding round from Fidelity Investments, valuing the company at the same $16 billion valuation it received last year. According to Reuters, the flat round indicates investors are becoming cautious of Snapchat’s sustainability. Last year, Fidelity devalued its stake in Snapchat by 25%, but it was marked up again last fall by about 15%. It is still unclear how profitable the company is and the mark down suggests that Snapchat could be overvalued.
