At the first trading day the stock price soared to $9.1 but quickly returned to the original IPO price of $8.

In 2015, Everspin generated $26.5 million in revenues - and reported a net loss of $18.2 million. Everspin has over 600 end-customers and Since 2008 it had shipped more than 60 million MRAM Chips. Everspin currently produces MRAM and STT-MRAM chips ranging from 128K to 256Mbit, and will soon launch 1 Gbit STT-MRAM chips. Everspin has three product generations: Toggle-MRAM, STT-MRAM and pMTJ STT-MRAM chips.

Everspin started sampling its new pMTJ ST-MRAM chips in August 2016. The p-MTJ ST-MRAM offers improved performance, higher endurance, lower power, and better scalability compared to previous MRAM and ST-MRAM products. Everspin is developing on a scaled-down 1Gb version.
