Goldman makes Snap projections

Feb 21 2:17pm danprimack
Goldman Sachs is telling prospective investors in Snap's IPO that the company should hit $2 billion in revenue in 2018, according to documents obtained by Business Insider . This would represent nearly a fourfold increase over the Los Angeles-based company's 2016 revenue, but also would reflect slower growth. Snap generated just $58 million in 2015 revenue and $404 million last year, or a 585\% boost. The Goldman figured would suggest a 395\% increase over two years. It's a similar situation in terms of user growth. The company experienced a 48\% increase in daily active users between the end of 2015 and the end of 2016, climbing to 158 million. Goldman Sachs expects that figure to hit 221 million by the end of 2018, or nearly 40\% growth (again, over two years instead of one). Business Insider did not make any mention of when Goldman b...

As Snap prepares IPO, memories of Box

Feb 21 1:19pm danprimack
Snap and Box are very different tech companies, in terms of product, target customer and size. But we're starting to see some public perception similarities, in terms of how IPO disclosures can raise all sorts of skeptical questions about unicorns that had been almost universally viewed as red hot and can't miss. Box filed for its IPO in March 2014, and didn't go public until March 2015. In between, it lived through a broad dive in publicly-traded SaaS stock values and its own decision to raise new pre-IPO funding. Also during that waiting period, Box CEO Aaron Levie sat down with me at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference, where I asked him about changing outside views of his company. Levie dodged the question a bit (and, again, Box is very different from Snap), but his basic message was that the most important thing for a company t...

B. Riley Financial (Nasdaq: RILY) on Tuesday said that it has agreed to acquire FBR & Co. (Nasdaq: FBRC), an Arlington, Va.-based small-cap investment banking and brokerage firm, in an all-stock transaction valued at $160.1 million. • Why it's the BFD: The small-cap investment banking market is unlikely to ever again reach its pre-millennium heyday, but this deal should at least ensure some added stability for companies that are worried about maintaining coverage. There also isn't too much overlap in terms of business units of clients for this pairing, as B. Riley concentrates on research while FBR is more equity transaction-oriented. • Bottom line: We've seen a lot of contraction among firms that provide small-cap research, and we were fortunate in that we successfully diversified around some other businesses.

Rapper and ubiquitous mogul Jay Z is launching a venture capital fund, according to multiple sources. One of his partners will be Jay Brown, a longtime business partner and president of Roc Nation. The pair also is scouring the venture market for a full-time investment partner. The Jays also are partnering with Sherpa Capital, although this won't be a Sherpa-branded effort, and existing Sherpa staff won't be leading investments. Expect the focus to be on seed-stage tech opportunities, with this really being the institutionalization of Jay Z and Jay Brown's previous angel investing activities.
