“We need to refocus our strategies to drive efficiency, growth and financial sustainability,” CEO Tom Keizer said in a statement to londonbusinessblog.com.

It was rumored that Hootsuite was worth about $1 billion in 2014, but if Pitchbook data turns up anything, Hootsuite was worth about a quarter of a billion less than that figure. in 2019. That year, the company fired 10% of its staff amid reports that it hadn’t sold itself.
