No one is discussing timing or details for obvious reasons, but Acronis makes no secret that there’s an IPO in its future. Beloussov, for one, is blasé on the topic.
“It’s not really the most important thing for us,” he says. “It will happen, but it’s just a result of us getting larger and larger.”
What it will mean most for partners, Beloussov continues, is greater transparency.
“They will know more about us,” he says. “They will feel, I suppose, more confidence in our long-term future because they will see how much money we have on the account and what’s our revenue. And they will know that a lot of statements we make are verified by the SEC.”
That may not sound like much, but confidence, according to Beloussov, matters a great deal in security. “You need to be confident that your protection is working, and you need to be confident in who protects you,” he says.
