Question about Spotify buying Gimlet
I have no idea how employee comp works when startups get acquired. They were valued at ~$70M, acquired for ~$210M.
Let’s say an employee joined after their most recent funding round and got $100K in equity.
Since they got acquired at 3X their last round does that mean the equity in this example is worth $300k roughly? ie can you guessimate how much employees make in an acquisition by looking at the multiple of their exit compared to their current valuation?
