80% of the company belongs to its investor TA Associates, while 20% of the stock is in hands of its founders and staff.

  1. Top line revenue grew a little over 20% in one year - pretty good by Euro standards, EBITDA margin 30% is also pretty good, but not as good as recent IPOs, for example AMBA with >50% EBITDA margins. Could be tough sell for TA to Wall Streeters. It's all about the story and selling the story as having ceiling room for massive growth. IMHO, great guys over there, but the story is not sexy enough for Wall Street.
