    We don't have that planned currently, but who knows what the future holds! I know little about IPO's in the start-up community myself.

    As much as I love me fingy, I think a publicly traded fing corp would be disastrous for us users. As a private entity, the Finglish (Fingch, Fingians?) only need to be concerned with keeping their investors happy. Once publicly traded then all bets are off.

    Of course, there's always the danger that a big conglomerate eyes up the fing, and buy's itself the whole company (e.g. Amazon and Eero).

    You have to look at it realistically from the Fing perspective.  Financially, the best thing that could happen to the team, assuming they have an equity stake in things, would be to be bought out by a large company with a proportionally huge payout.  That being said, I agree past experience has shown from a customer perspective it rarely goes well as bits and pieces get absorbed into the mother ship and the original product focus invariably slips.  Look at Nest post Google (Alphabet etc) purchase as an example.

    Thanks for the feedback @Marc and @Pooh. No plans for a buyout now. Right now we're just working on monetization using the right paths etc. This includes the recent in-app ads, Fingbox and some partnerships.

    Stabilization - I like that! Hearing this makes me a happy bear (although a bunch of red balloons and a large pot of honey would make me even happier!)

    @VioletChepil Never say never but your comment is reassuring.
