Spotify's stock closed up 13 percent from its reference price on its first day of trading, but below the highs of the day.
Shares hit the public market at an opening price of $165.90 Tuesday, but ultimately fell more than 10 percent from the opening price to close at $149.01 — still higher than expected. The $149.01 closing price remained well above Monday night's reference price of $132, even though it was under the day's high of $169 apiece.
The music streaming service is trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol SPOT. Unlike a traditional IPO, Spotify conducted a direct listing, meaning no banks underwrote the offering and no price was set ahead of the debut.
The NYSE set a reference price of $132 on Monday night based on previous trades on private markets, but ultimately the publicly listed price was based on investor demand.
"Spotify is not raising capital, and our shareholders and employees have been free to buy and sell our stock for years," CEO Daniel Ek wrote in a blog post Monday. "So while [Tuesday] puts us on a bigger stage, it doesn't change who we are, what we are about, or how we operate."
The company reported nearly $5 billion in revenue for 2017, according to its initial prospectus, though it still posted an operating loss of $461.3 million for the year.
Spotify had 71 million paying subscribers and more than 159 million monthly active listeners as of December, positioning the service far ahead of its closest competitor, Apple Music, with just 36 million subscribers.
