The social media company’s Chief Executive Officer, Steve Huffman, told the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) that it is a good market to raise funds.

“Valuations are very high right now. It never hurts to raise money when there’s an opportunity to do so and Reddit had a strong year,” Huffman was quoted as saying by the WSJ.

Reddit said in a blog post that advertising revenue increased 90 per cent in the last quarter from a year earlier.
