MySQL IPO – Are We Friends and Family?
One of the most-anticipated tech IPOs of the year has been that of open-source database company MySQL. It seemed like they were ready to go public back in the beginning of the year. Now I am hearing chatter from hedge fund circles that the filing may be imminent. Last I checked, nothing has been filed with the SEC yet. Investors, including Benchmark, Index, IVP, Intel, and SAP, have put in more than $39 million to date.
Do you think MySQL might be nice enough to allocate a portion of IPO as friends and family to the Open Source community? (hint hint).
