15 Biggest Companies That Use ShopifyImpressive list, but not clear how much revenue of these companies is flowing through Shopify's products. Tesla's main car sales web site is not a Shopify store front if I am reading this correctly, and other large players are dipping their toes in on smaller, focused projects. For example, Budweiser.com's swag site uses Shopify, but not the main site. The main Tupperware.com and FTD.com sites are Shopify.Looking over the 2001 40-F, a couple things stand out:1) Large capital raises mainly by selling high-priced shares in 2020 and 2021. Less likely to be sustainable at this rate in the future2) $2.9 B in gains on investments in private companies that subsequently went public. Also not likely to be sustainable at scale over time1&2 provide a cash cushion of over $8 B, with total assets of $13 B and net shareholder's equity of $11 B, or $88/share. The value of the business is on top of that.3) Merchant Solutions (MS) is probably the business category to use as the revenue and profit driver for the future, rather than Subscription Services (SS). Unfortunately MS has a lower gross margin (around 40%) than SS (around 80%).4) R&D currently 18.5% of revenue. By comparison MSFT's and AMZN's are 12%, and AAPL's is 6%. Can probably assume this will reduce.5) The business is straightforward, which is great to see. The competitive advantage is the speed and scale of building out the Amazon alternative, and SHOP seems to be doing that extremely well.6) Gross Merchandise Volume (all purchases that flow through the Shopify system) was $175 B in 2021, a growth of 46% from 2020.Now on to attempt to make projections of the business.-Mike
