Auf dem Weg zur neuen Blase – 580 mio $ für myspace.com

Nico —  18.07.2005

Rupert Murdoch will nun endlich mal Geld verdienen mit dem Internet und hat für schlanke 580 mio $ das Portal myspace.com gekauft. Ein paar Zahlen und Einschätzungen zum Geleit:

Essentially, MySpace.com is a place where users generate their own content via Web logs, pictures or their own music. As some teenagers explain it, MySpace.com is a place where they can share their favorite songs and pictures, be known, be heard and be read and socialize.

Intermix is expected to generates sales of $25 million in the June quarter. MySpace makes up about 25% of those sales, according to investors. Intermix won’t disclose how much MySpace is earning, but it told Wall Street that it expects $15 million in cash flow on sales of $118 million in fiscal 2006, which ends in March.

News Corp. is essentially paying nearly five times more than Intermix’s estimated revenue for next year.[Marketwatch: Why MySpace is a centerpiece]

Die Zielgruppe stimmt, da will die News Corp gerne mehr drüber erfahren, aber muß man dafür 580 mio $ ausgeben? Wenn man bislang das Internet verpennt hat, dann kann dies ein gelungener Einstieg sein. Muß aber nicht.

  1. RM zahlt 580 Millionen USD fuer Intermix Media. Denen gehoeren 53% von MySpace. Die restlichen 47% will Intermix fuer 69 Millionen USD kaufen.

    And now you do the math.
