I should not take the credit for noticing this.
I was reading a biz magazine in India, one angel investor writes insightful column almost every fortnight and he should get the credit!

If any of you have read the Google's SEC filing for going public. it says the amoust that Google will be raising will be $2,718,281,828 . Typically companies raise a round sum of money.

However, if one looks beyond just that number, and anyone who remembers their school days mathematics...its nothing but the value for constant "e" which is = 2.718281828.

And instead of raising $2.5b or $3b, Google wants to raise $e Billion

Huh.....! Maths buffs ....!
