Founded in 1998, raised more than $70 million in venture capital, and when the bubble burst had to lay off 30% of their staff.

With this run rate of $168 million in revenue and $22 million in operating income, and a strong quarter over quarter growth rate, we\’ll likely see yet another billion dollar market cap.

Doubleclick has higher revenue at nearly $73 million for the same quarter, but with a slower growth rate and lower operating margins. It\’s market cap is more than $1.6 billion today.
