Nice win for a local company
This morning it is reported that Madison based Sway, best known for its flagship Web tool product, Shoutlet, has been acquired for $30 million. Sway is a privately held company with around $2 million in revenues and employees 13 people.
Its great to see a Wisconsin based company makes moves in the internet space (dare I say Web 2.0 space?) and the 15x multiple is something to note as well. Nice job!
I guess lightning does strike outside of Silicon Valley. ;-)
