Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. IPO

Norwegian Cruise Lines filed their S-1 registration paperwork with the SEC to raise $250 million in an IPO on July 15. The company said they expect to use the proceeds of the IPO to pay down their debt, but no other financial details were reported.

It is the second filing for the company, following a previous S-1 filing in October 2010. The company withdrew that S-1, filed under NCL Corporation Ltd., and the new name of the parent company will be Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.

Norwegian is the third largest cruise ship operator in North America, following Carnival Corp. and Royal Caribbean Cruise Ltd. Currently Norwegian is a privately held company owned by Genting HK, an Asian gaming company, and the investment group Apollo Management. Each owns 50% of Norwegian.

Norwegian was founded by businessmen Knut Kloster and Ted Arison and began operations in 1966. Norwegian is well known for their trademarked “”Freestyle Cruising”" concept, differing from other large cruise ship operators by featuring no set dining times, assigned tables or formal dress code. Norwegian operates in North America, the Mediterranean, the Baltic, Bermuda, Central America and the Caribbean, currently fielding a fleet of eleven ships.

Norwegian was bought by Star Cruises, a subsidiary of Genting HK, in 2000, but the company surprised industry observers when they sold 50% of their stake to the Apollo Group in 2007.

In October of 2010, a day before Norwegian’s initial IPO filing, the company announced orders for two new 143,500-ton ships from Germany’s Meyer Werft shipyard, set to enter service in 2013 and 2014. These two ships will be the largest ever built in Germany, each having a capacity of 4,000 passengers. The cost of the deal was reported as 1.2 billion euros and will expand Norwegian’s capacity by 30%.

Norwegian’s total revenues for the twelve months ending March 31, 2011 were $2.09 billion, with net revenues of $1.54 billion and net income of $28.10 million.

For the first quarter of 2011, revenues were up. Norwegian reported total revenues of $495.5 million, net revenues of $368.0 million, with a net loss of $10.6 million. In the first quarter of 2010 Norwegian reported total revenues of $416.5 million, net revenues of $306.9 million, with a net loss of $16.1 million.

Norwegian expects to trade on the Nasdaq under the stock symbol NCLH.

Carbonite IPO

Carbonite Inc was founded in 2005 by David Friend and Jeff Flowers. It is headquartered in Boston, MA, and currently has 150 employees.

The company was founded after the two men realized that many people (including their own family members) failed to back up their computers on a regular basis. The traditional methods of computer backup were considered time-consuming, and required having an external hard drive or burning CD Roms constantly. The majority of the time though, people would simply forget.

There were already existing online backup services, but they were extremely complicated and very expensive. Friend and Flowers decided to create something that would offer an affordable backup service that would simply run in the background, automatically backing up the computer.

Since the launch of Carbonite in 2005, the company has backed up more than 100 billion files, currently 200 million a day. In addition to this, Carbonite has restored over 7 billion files that would have otherwise been lost.

Called “”The easiest online backup software to use,”" by the New York Times, Carbonite works automatically without any input by the computer user. Files are encrypted before they leave the computer, and once again during transfer. They are stored on secure servers which are guarded 24 hours a day. Lost or damaged files can easily be restored, either on an existing or new computer.

Carbonite has won a number of awards, including 2010 winner of the New England Innovation Awards awarded by the Smaller Business Association of New England. It was also a finalist in the Red Herring 100 North America Award, which acknowledges companies for a number of qualities, including technological innovation, market size, financial health and customer acquisition.

Carbonite has grown by 11,207% in the last 3 years, placing #9 in Inc. Magazine’s Top 500 list. MassTLC recently named it their Private Company of the Year.

In May, Carbonite filed an S-1 form with the Securites and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposing an IPO of shares of its common stock, indicating that it is looking to go public in the very near future. To date, the number of shares that will be offered and price haven’t been released, with the only available information being its Ticker Symbol, which will be listed as CARB on NASDAQ.
