Redis Labs, an Israeli startup and unicorn that develops database software, is planning on holding an initial public offering IPO. According to a report in Calcalist, the IPO could leave Redis with a valuation from anywhere between $4 and $5 billion.

The news comes after Redis Labs became a unicorn back in April, hitting a $2 billion valuation.

If it does make it to a $5 billion valuation, then it will join an exclusive club of Israeli firms who hit that mark with their IPOs. While it would be no SentinelOne which broke the $13 billion mark when it went public in July, Redis will be up there in the $5 billion plus club. Already this week, Forter, an Israeli security startup that deals in fraud prevention in e-commerce, was reported to be getting ready for its initial public offering (IPO). Globes has reported that sources in the company revealed that it expects to come away with a $5 billion valuation from the IPO.
