4. RMG At The Crossroads: Letâ€™s Make a Deal
Ken Goldberg, digital signage blog – June 23, 2011
In some of the least surprising news in recent memory, word came out Wednesday that RMG Networks is mulling an IPO in which it would raise $250 million in equity financing. The timing is not shocking considering the overheated reaction to the LinkedIn IPO, the warm reception for Pandora and the astronomical valuations contemplated for the arguably fatally flawed Groupon. RMG, which is funded primarily by Silicon Valley VC stalwarts Kleiner Perkins and DAG Ventures, was clearly headed toward a new round of financing to drive growth and take advantage of RMGâ€™s momentum.
