- Despite the hypergrowth, the company has been cash flow positive (and growing the last 3 years)

..I'm wondering, with this astounding organic growth, 'why go public?'..

..what plans are anticipated for the proceeds from the sale to the public?...we've seen, over the past several decades, a massive shrinking of the public markets in terms of publicly traded companies...some of that is due to smaller companies being snatched up before going public, and some of it is due to the regulations required to play in the public sphere..

..FB held out until the number of investors forced them public...others use to the cash to fund expansion, necessary for capital intensive businesses..

..but I always question the motivations of companies taking their companies public..

..good luck!..
