" Last year King generated profits of $568 million on revenue of $1.88 billion. That’s up from a loss of $1.3 million on revenue of $64 million in 2011." 90 million playing Candy Crush Saga daily. About 4% (12 million) of users buy regular iAP/power up stuff. #IPOs #ballers #games #revenue #pub
From Yahoo Finance: It's rare, but techs have lagged in initial public offerings this year. The tech sector usually leads all sectors in number of IPOs and proceeds raised. But the sector accounts for just 11% of all IPOs ... #IPOs #money #stocks #revenue #tech #tech_companies #toread #pub
"Those are big numbers. So why do brilliant venture capitalists and brainiac founding teams keep falling for the investment banks’ assurances that raising less money is actually good for them? Hint: It’s usually good for employees, especially the top managers, who are able to secure options and other stock grants at the super-bargain IPO grant price. They then get to take part in the same guaranteed windfall as the institutional investors." #stock_market #stocks #research #info #IPOs #investing #personal_investing #personal_finance #pub
Expedia owns 2/3 or around 62%. "Expedia said in July that Trivago had generated $200 million in revenue in the second quarter, and more than $660 million on a trailing 12-month basis." #IPOs #stock_market #travel_industry #affiliates #search_engines #pub
Interesting, Sohu start Sogou the search engine. In third place. Sold 40% to none other than Tencent lol! Qihoo 360 is apparently in 2nd place. Didn't know that. Also the deets on market share in China: "Data compiled by Bloomberg Intelligence finds Baidu with a commanding 74.4% of the search market, followed by Qihoo 360 at 17.3% and Sohu.com's Sogou at 6.9%." --- I find these stats hard to believe. Or maybe that's how little I know of the power of the Firewall. 98.6% of searches are done by just these 3? Let's say .5% more are done by other Chinese seach engines. That means less than 1% go to all the other search engines around the world? Damn! #chinese_companies #tech_companies #IPOs #public_companies #news #big_tech #pub
To go public on NYSE between Q4 2017 and Q1 2018. Going to be valued at $13B. It has 50M subscribers right now with a 43% revenue growth rate. 3K employees. Should be close to 60M subscribers by the time it IPOs. Above 55M for sure. 90% revenue is from subscribers. Some loss is likely from free people. #IPOs #stocks #spotify #pub
