ASSUMPTIONS AND PROJECTIONSThe revenue projections here take an alternate perspective. They are projected based onthe size of the company that signs up for using Genious.Using this lens, we see that the focus shifts on the size of the company that is accessing theinformation, rather than the amount of information it wants to access.
