Did Zoom pay $2 million for Zoom.com?

March 23, 2019Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on Did Zoom pay $2 million for Zoom.com?

A clue in Zoom’s IPO filing hints at Zoom.com purchase price.

Late last year video conferencing company Zoom acquired the domain name Zoom.com. A new clue suggests that the company might have paid $2 million to acquire the domain name.

Media Options acquired the domain name last year and filed a trademark application to launch a domain name consulting service. Then it sold it to Zoom Communications, which uses the domain Zoom.us.

Zoom just filed to go public and its S-1 filing shows intangible asset purchases of $2.018 million in the fiscal year that ended January 31, 2019.

Intangible asset purchase on Zoom S-1 filing

George Kirikos pointed out on twitter that $2.018 million is exactly what the company would have paid if it used Escrow.com to complete a $2.0 million transaction:

It’s possible that Zoom acquired other IP last year, but $2 million seems about right for this domain name given the circumstances.

The last known sales price for Zoom.com was $350,000 in equity back in 2010. That included the domain name and some intellectual property.
