22M to get through 2003 =~$1M/month. Lets be honest about their investors. They know what they are doing.

Let's not forget: There's probably a bridge loan lurking in here somewhere that needs to be repaid.

We should also expect that there will be some burn rate offsetting revenue between now and 2003, or does the faucet just magically turn on at some point... in 2004??

How many people do they have left? Less than 100, from the looks of it. $1M/month is _a lot_ of money in this VC environment, especially when there's no revenue coming in from the current product.

re: Yafo Scores $22 Million My understanding is that the previous round was a "down round" with company valuation lower than in previous rounds. Don't know if this round was down from there or the same valuation or up. Still, even one down round is not so good...

From assuming roughly $200K/yr/employee total costs, $1M/month can support only 60 employees. That's a reasonably small-sized staff for product development and ramping up to production. Are companies really expected to make good products with a budget that small?
