When it comes to an initial public offering, "we now think that the opportunity is quite large," says Ben Lerer, founder and CEO of Thrillist Media Group. "We're trying to structure things so that we could go public," he says of the men's lifestyle brand, which he predicts is close to making $100 million in revenue per year. Thrillist, which is known for its male-oriented daily e-mail about local activities, is also in the e-commerce business after acquiring flash-sale site JackThreads in 2010. Although Lerer says there was "something really special" about JackThreads, Thrillist "would certainly go and buy another company if we found something that was as elegant a fit."
