Size of company comparison and other triva facts

Lefthand was founded in 1999 and had 200 some employees located in bolder CO, before it was acquired by HP on December 1,2008 for $360 million in cash, subject to certain purchase price adjustments. It had 215 employees and more than 500 resellers and distributors worldwide. The company had more than 11,000 installations across 3,000 different customers.

Equallogic on the other company was incorporated in 2001 and is headquartered in Nashua, New Hampshire. Had 384 employees and as of January 25, 2008, EqualLogic, Inc. operates as a subsidiary of Dell Inc. it was purchased for 1.4 billion.

This post questions how many customers lefthand really had

But if you were to base your decision on purchase price alone, Equallogic was valued much higher than Lefthand. It makes you wonder....
