First off, thank you for writing this. It’s inspired great conversation around the office.

This is the correct take. It’s also worth pointing out that Trello reportedly was on track to generate $13 million in ARR in 2016, making this acquisition a 32X ARR revenue multiple. That’s pretty rough math but it is by all measures a phenomenal outcome for the team. I’m certain that all of Trello’s employees are happier that they were taken out at this point rather than shoot for the moon and a “billion dollar” outcome only to end up with far less (though a 32X multiple is way beyond the moon).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
