September 25, 2009 – In a move that has shocked many in the industry, capital firm Insight Venture Partners and mutual find company T. Rowe Price might join the existing backers of Twitter to create a $1 Billion evaluation for the social media network.
This is an incredibly high number by any comparison, but it is especially impressive for a company that has yet to produce significant monetization or even an actual cash flow. According to reports inMediapost:
The basis of all valuation is the discounted cash-flow analysis. It has two parts: cash flow for some period of time, and terminal value, explains Jordan Rohan, founder and managing partner at Clearmeadow Partners. “To value a company at more than $1 billion, in the absence of current cash flows, one would have to think you could sell the company for much more than $1 billion someday soon,” he says.
