StubHub on the Block - eBay a Buyer? eBay Inc.

posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 10/04/2006 02:58:00 PM
Bambi writes that StubHub is on the block. eBay Inc (Nasdaq EBAY) may be a bidder because it needs the growth. The price: $300 million. They expect $100 million in revenues. StubHub is an interesting concept : List your tickets on StubHub, get paid, StubHub does the rest. Queries for StubHub seems to be rising very fast. I think that the company charges too much - 15% commission from the seller, 10% from the buyer. Ouch!
StubHub raised $12 million earlier this year and competes against RazorGator. As you can see, StubHub is kicking RazorGator's A** in terms of traffic.

RazorGator has a different business model. It actually buys and sells tickets itself although it recently decided to serve large ticket sellers with TicketOS. It's just a fancy software that enables you to manage your inventory online. RazorGator did about $50 million revenues in 2005. RazorGator is backed by Kleiner Perkins with $26 million and another $22 million this year.

No, razorgator is very similar to stubhub's model. Although, razorgator sells its own tickets, individual season ticket holders can also sell on it.

RazorGator has not done the consumer marketing that stubhub has, hence the traffic numbers.
