Investors only invest when they know the speed to multiply their money is fast with a providen systems. Investors wants to know the financial statement and the business systems before they buy the company.
When the time the business has a lot of cash they hunt down small company and buy them before the small company could move in a stock entry. The moto is to buy them first before they could compite us in the market place. I remember when the google company has increase their stock investor and their next challanges is the compite or buy the youtube.com com They had to buy at a high price before it will increase in value when the value has sky rocket it will be very diffcult to buy. Same as the facebook.com when it all started alot of big company wants to buy because of the providen social media with a billions of traffic in the website. Most importantly the billions of people in the database entry which they could analyzis the market place. Now facebook is a strong competitor of google incorporation before it was small business. In the alexa seo they are in the ranking of 2 to 5 depend on the geographical location.
