Comments on: A look into Carbonite’s IPO Grow your own Thu, 26 Mar 2015 12:32:24 +0000 hourly 1 By: CloudQuestions Fri, 19 Aug 2011 16:03:58 +0000 I’m confused about the claim that they have been able to acquire customers at $55. That doesn’t seem to be supported by the financial data in their S1 filing.

The breakdown I found most illuminating was done at Wikibon, here: of_Carbonite,_or_lack_thereof#The_Cost_o f_a_Customer

This analysis (based on the S1 data) suggests an acquisition cost that is almost twice as high. Did Friend/Carbonite provide more detail on cost of acquisition?

Perhaps most importantly, do they intend to report this metric in their quarterly updates?
