Hello and invite back to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast where we unpack the numbers behind theheadlines. After the morning show headed out, the Equity crew could not shut up about the Qualtrics-SAP offer, so we had no choice however to jump back into taping mode for an off-the-cuff Equity Shot. As constantly, Shots are short-form Equity episodes that concentrate on a single, news subject. Building off of Danny’s SAP knowledge, Natasha’s curiosity about the future Qualtrics S-1, and my own current dive into the SAP and Qualtrics numbers, we handled to cover quite a great deal of ground. If you wanted to understand: Why did SAP have to pay so

  1. much for Qualtrics back in the day? Why is SAP willing to part with Qualtrics
  2. so not long after buying it? Just how much might Qualtrics deserve?
  3. And, of course, did the Equity group expect to
  4. see this news in 2020? You are most likely going to like what we have in shop

for you. Spoiler on that last as the answer is a company no, however, all the same,

what fun. That has to do with it for this Equity Shot, hit play, have fun, and we are back Friday early morning unless something else occurs, like a Palantir S-1.

Equity drops every Monday at 7:00 a.m. PDT and Friday at 6:00 a.m. PDT, so sign up for us on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify and all the casts.
