Going Private Will Be Cool
"I think we can’t overstate how cool it's going to be that we can go private. As a private company, we are not going to be held to the altar of quarterly 90-day financial metrics we must hit for the Street. By going private, we are going to be able to take a longer view on the business, make the right long-term investments, and make the right long-term decisions for our customers. Going private is going to enable a tremendous amount of flexibility. Think of something simple like flexible consumption models. It's really hard for us when we have to hit quarterly numbers to really passionately proactively go forward with flexible consumption-model offerings for our customers, right? For a private company, now we have the flexibility to do that. I think we can’t overstate [the] importance, structurally, of [being] a private company."
