Correct response: What is LEVI?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Even though the company was founded back in 1853, Levi Strauss & Co. (LEVI) first went public in 1971, but was taken private in 1985. It went public again in March of 2019, going public this time in order to fund both its wishes to expand overseas (especially China), as well as purchase current trendy brands.
This should be a relatively straightforward clue, as long as nobody falls for the “wait, what, how did they only have an IPO in 2019” and “they want the symbol, not the company” traps.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well!
