That is a heck of a lot more than what Publicis paid for Performics [mediapost.com].
It's also a whole lot less than Microsoft paid for this bundled company - $6 billion.
I'm not visiting that site twice, you can't make me. That is an extremely annoying and lengthy flash introduction imo.
|Razorfish helps companies build great brands by creating engaging experiences for consumers wherever they live in the digital world. |
Companies need to learn to do this themselves. 560 million for any website is 559 million too much, I have yet to find a site that a motivated nerdy 13 year old can't recreate during his/her summer vacation (no offense, code is code)
If people, wherever they are, make the site worth 560 million then the total internet advertising/consumer services market is worth what... 9,232,132,232,443,221 ? (hmmm wait, that wouldn't even get you Microsoft I don't think) c.r.a.z.y!

Agreed ..the site ,the flash and the math ( and I like flash ) ..usually ..:)
Some execs at publicis may just wake up a few days from now and ask themselves ..did we really sign off on that much for that ..?
and if they dont ..they should
Actually, it's probably that they're paying ___x multiple for the current client contracts that Ave A Razorfish has. NOT a good sign for the marketing agency business as a whole.
