$25bn for a company with $400m revenue and -$140m operating loss?!

I thought even Uber was a bit overvalued @ $80bn with $11bn revenue and $3bn loss. How do you arrive at Slack’s value?

    Slack is building a moat with every integration on their platform. Once they sign a customer, they only quit the contract when: 1. The customer decides IM at work is too distracting (unlikely), 2. The customer goes out of business, or 3. The customer switches to hipchat or MS Teams or some other internal service. HC, Teams and internal services won’t have the integration marketplace that makes slack valuable. They’re gonna have high retention rates, medium-high COCA and very high LTV.

      Ah so basically the bet is that customers pay a lot more over time and don’t churn? Even so that’s a crazy multiple.

    Gotta concede that Uber went public around some bad time.

    IPO is a way to raise capital, if a company was profitable it wouldn't need to ipo...

      They didn’t raise capital, did DPO instead.

      Yep, which is a quicker and cheaper way to raise money. Thanks for clarifying, I meant public trading and not ipo.

    They didn’t raise additional money. They gave current shareholders liquidity event. No dilution whatsoever.
