E55 Explores Small Margins and Big IPOs

This Week In Local E55 Explores Small Margins and Big IPOs

E55 of Localogy’s This Week in Local podcast features Localogy senior analysts Mike Boland and Charles Laughlin looking at business trends impacting Localogy’s ecosystem, from small business margins to IPO preparations. 


Mike shares the results of an exercise he conducted looking at average net profit margins for various small business categories. The point was to further demonstrate how fragmented the SMB market is. 


Charles brings up recent efforts by the buy now, pay later platform Klarna to achieve revenue diversification in advance of its expected IPO this year.

The company appears eager to prove it is not a one-trick pony by offering a subscription product.


And finally, we wrap up the podcast with each host’s nomination for “Who Won the Week.”

Please remember to listen to the very end. Each host offers his nomination for “Who Won the Week”. Was it you? You won’t know until you listen.
