Hi Niall - Ian is away at the moment, so I'll leave him to answer that when he gets back :)

Thanks for the comment - good question!

Hi Helen, this is a great interview with some really useful information. Ian said that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and how this applies to tech companies. And while profits and revenues remain paramount, we now see factors such as user numbers etc are becoming increasingly important. I suppose part of the challenge lies in translating these non traditional and virtual metrics into real numbers. My guess is these aspects of the valuation process are more fluid and still very much a work in progress?
