Over the course of nearly two decades, Newegg built a highly reputable and widely recognized name in the tech-focused ecommerce market. As we prepare to become a publicly traded company, we are well positioned to build on this foundation to take Newegg to the next level. Combining our deep market expertise in ecommerce and leadership in technology, we are structured and prepared to capitalize on new strategic initiatives and partnerships.
