Sezzle Inc. (ASX: SZL) is an emerging BNPL company listed on ASX. The company operates in the US and Canada was founded in 2016 and three years later went public on the Australian Securities Exchange. The company headquarters is in Minneapolis, United States.

The company recently abandoned its merger with Zip Co Ltd (ASX: ZIP). This was a highly anticipated acquisition since ZIP announced to acquire SZL in February 2022. But at the last moment, SZL had to back off.

The SZL shares are flying high in the market, and the investors are not sure why the sudden rise is.

Investors are excited to know why there was a sudden hike in the Sezzle share price. They are waiting for the news from the company, which will be announced soon. The stock of the company is frozen at the moment as it is on a trading halt. SZL and ZIP merger was expected to be a new dawn for both companies, but the deal was cancelled recently.
