  1. 1. SOFTWARE & SERVICES 10 NOVEMBER 2009 DAVID SHORE, CFA, MBA 416.860.6784 WEB 2.O WEEKLY david.shore@researchcapital.com Damian Wojcichowsky, CFA (Associate), 416.860.7652 ANOTHER TECH BUBBLE? NOT Q UITE GO OGL E A CQ UI R E S AD M OB N ET W OR K Google announced the acquisition of AdMob, the mobile ad platform that serves online ads for a network of 15,000 mobile W eb sites. AdMob’s platform has made considerable in-roads into the iPhone ecosystem, and fits nicely with the burgeoning Google Android platform. Google bid $750 million for the company, which generates a revenue run rate of approximately $100 million currently, implying a Price/Sales valuation on the deal of 7.5x. Before we begin proclaiming the onset of a new tech bubble, we note that Google and Microsoft both acquired companies in the same digital marketing space in 2007 for double digit P/S multiples (see Digital Marketing M&A Valuations). Digital Marketing M&A Valuations WPP Group acquires 24/7 Real Media Google acquires AdMob (November 2009) Google acquires DoubleClick (April 2007) Microsoft acquires aQuantive (May 2007) - 2.0 4.0 6.0 8.0 10.0 12.0 14.0 16.0 Price/Sales (trailing 12 months) EL E CT R ON IC A RT S A CQ UI R ES PL A YF I SH The long-anticipated acquisition of Playfish by Electronic Arts has come to fruition in a deal involving consideration of $275 million upfront in cash, $25 million in retention payments via shares, and $100 million in earn-out – a total consideration of $400 million potentially. The Price/Sales valuation on this transaction (based on estimates of $75 million in Playfish revenue run rate) ranges between 4.0x and 5.3x (depending on the value when EA closes the deal). Playfish operates social games on Facebook, MySpace, Hi5, and other social networks which have been installed more than 150 million times, and claims 60 million monthly active users. Its top games include Pet Society, Restaurant City, Country Story, and Who Has The Biggest Brain? S UMM AR Y – C A PIT AL M A RK ET S A CT I V IT Y Slow down continues since late October: Total transaction value in the Web 2.0 universe for November is $24.2 million – a decidedly slow start to the month. November has begun with six financings in the sector averaging $4.0 million each (vs. an average of $6.3 million last month). In comparison, total capital raised in October was $171.3 million, averaging $6.3 million (27 deals); September was $232.8 million, averaging $9.0 million (26 deals); and August was $221.6 million, averaging $7.6 million (29 deals).
