DigitalOcean Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

DigitalOcean's customer base of approximately 598,000 customers represents a significant opportunity for further consumption of DigitalOcean services. There are substantial opportunities to expand revenue within DigitalOcean's large customer base through increased usage of our platform as customers grow their businesses, adoption of additional product offerings and targeted sales initiatives focused on our larger customers. DigitalOcean's consumption-based pricing model makes it frictionless for customers to increase their usage of the platform as they require more compute and storage as they grow and scale. DigitalOcean have also expanded the breadth of their platform offerings and will continue to do so as they have experienced strong adoption of recently developed products.

DigitalOcean Risks and Challenges

DigitalOcean's core customer base consists of individual developers, early stage start-ups and small-to-medium size businesses, many of which plan for high growth. DigitalOcean expect that the path to growth will, in part, rely on scaling their platform to meet the needs of such customers as they increase usage of DigitalOcean's platform. Accordingly, if such customers fail to grow as expected, then DigitalOcean's path to growth may be adversely affected. In addition, DigitalOcean's inability to offer both suitable services to support their businesses at scale and suitable and appropriately priced services for the initial state of their business, and could adversely affect DigitalOcean's business, financial condition and results of operations.
