Abstract [en]

With the surge in valution of the modern private Internet companies the authors felt that there is a need to identify the parameters that lay behind the valuations. By finding these parameters' use prior to the dotcom of the late 1990s and collecting and analyzing data the authors try to find whether the same parameters are used to value the modern private Internet companies. 

The reason for choosing articles on the valuation parameters of late 1990s is because the interest in investing Internet companies was the highest at that time and we felt that this could be used in a comparative basis. Through this analysis the following valuation parameters were identified as the most important of that time;

  • Web Metrics
  • Insider Trading
  • Analysts’ role in the valuation
  • The impact of asymmetric information
