Dropbox bought hellosign for the workflow capabilities. Hellosign says they will get more resources with Dropbox (this coming from a ceo who said they did not need money to begin with).

HelloSign is working on a replacement for the pdf.

According to this article hellosign has 80k customers. So DocuSign has 5x the customers. But trades at 36x the price hellosign was acquired at.

Either they sold out for way too low or they don’t get nearly the quality customers and rev/customer DocuSign does.

So what I think is happening is these esignature companies are morphing from esignature to document management and that is where their value is.

Not sure what else there is to say about this. I rolled the dice and will see what happens in a few quarters.
