Stage 3 - Maturity and IPO
Once you’ve acquired a well-established position in the market, a stable customer base and predictable revenue streams, the focus becomes improving operations and efficiency, enhancing the product offering and continuing to acquire and retain customers.
At this stage, once the required level of revenue and profitability has been reached, a subscription-based business often considers going public via an initial public offering (IPO), which offers the public the chance to invest in shares of the company stock and own a piece of the business.
At this point, greater insights to the future are needed to encourage investment, with metrics including deferred revenue, earnings before interest, overall company expenses and year-over-year customer growth increasing in importance.
