Risk Factors

The Confluent prospectus includes more than 40 pages of risk factors for investors, describing every possible eventuality including failure to achieve profitability, fluctuating financial results, competitive markets, rapid changes in technology and unfavorable economic conditions.

In a sign of the times, Confluent also lists pandemics like COVID-19 as a risk factor. “Health epidemics, including the COVID-19 pandemic, have had, and could in the future have, an adverse impact on our business, operations, and the markets and communities in which we, our partners, and customers operate.”

And the potential downside of cybersecurity threats and incidents is cited as a potential risk. “If we or third parties who we work with experience a security breach, or if the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of our information technology, software, services, communications, or data is compromised, our offering may be perceived as not being secure, our reputation may be harmed, demand for our offering may be reduced, proprietary data and information, including source code, could be exfiltrated, and we may incur significant liabilities,” the company says in the S-1.
