Zynga продавала дополнение для своей игры по случайной цене

Издатель Zynga провёл необычный эксперимент в своей мобильной игре CSR Racing 2. Дня неё было выпущено дополнение с машиной из "Форсажа 8", цена которого варьировалась от 5 до 35 долларов случайным образом для каждого игрока. После того как пользователи заметили, что цена на машину оказалась неодинаковой для всех, Zynga начала получать многочисленные жалобы. Компания извинилась за произошедшее. По словам Zynga, в играх издателя постоянно тестируются разные аспекты, но в этот раз эксперимент негативно сказался на опыте пользователей.Те, кто приобрёл дополнение по "Форсажу 8" для CSR Racing 2 по максимальной цене в 35 долларов, вскоре получат внутриигровую компенсацию. Сам Zynga после тестирования решила остановиться на ценнике в 15 долларов.

Сбой на бирже Nasdaq уравнял все акции

походу не только мосбаржа вчера облажалась, а еще и сбой на самом насдаке(хотя они и отмазываются что невиноватая я). Вчера в ходе электронных торгов на бирже Nasdaq произошел сбой, из-за которого стоимость акций торгующихся там компаний вышла на единый уровень в $123,47. В результате получилось, что акции тех компаний, что стоили больше, резко обвалились, а тех, что стоили меньше, резко выросли, вызвав панику на рынке. Так, акции Apple подешевели на 14,3%, у Amazon обвалились на 87%, а у Microsoft взлетели на 79,1%, из-за чего стоимость компании достигла почти $1 трлн. Акции eBay подорожали на 253%, Mattel — на 473%, у Zynga — более чем на 3000%, и эта небольшая компания стала стоить дороже банка Goldman Sachs.По итогам каждого торгового дня американские биржи, в том числе Nasdaq, отправляют тестовые данные сервисам финансовой информации для проверки каналов передачи. Обычно сервисы удаляют эти данные, но на этот раз по какой-то причине они восприняли их как реальные данные торгов и выставили их. Возможно, это было как-то связано с тем, что вчера биржи в США закрылись раньше обычного перед празднованием Дня независимости. Руководство Nasdaq сообщило, что в этом сбое нет вины биржи, и сейчас «ведется работа с провайдерами данных по урегулированию этой проблемы».

Nasdaq Triggers Market-Wide Circuit-Breaker As AMZN "Crashes" 87% After-Hours

Nasdaq has issued a market-wide trading halt amid what appears to be a "glitch" that sent a number of the largest Nasdaq-listed stocks to crash or spike to exactly $123.47 per share. This move crashed the value of companies including Amazon and Apple, sparked chaos in Microsoft, while sending Zynga rocketing up more than 3000%. On the eve of the US Independence Day holiday and in after-hours trading, The FT reports that market data show that companies such as Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, eBay and Zynga were repriced at $123.47. The Bloomberg data terminal listed either “market wide circuit breaker halt — level 2” or “volatility trading pause” on all the stocks affected.  The glitch did not affect any market trading, including after hours. The mysterious reset to $123.47 per share meant that Amazon in theory saw its share price marked down 87.2 per cent... while shares in Apple fell 14.3 per cent... But Nasdaq-listed Microsoft had jumped 79.1 per cent — which would value the company at nearly $1tn...   As Bloomberg reports, the apparent swings triggered trading halts in some securities, according to automatically generated messages. The halts are a mechanism exchanges use to limit the impact of particularly volatile sessions. A system status alert on Nasdaq’s website said that systems were operating normally at 8:23 p.m. ET. After-market hours on Nasdaq typically last from 4 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. In a statement, Nasdaq said the glitch was related to “improper use of test data” sent out to third party data providers, and said it was working to “ensure a prompt resolution of this matter”. In cases of any clearly erroneous data, trades made are cancelled. As a reminder this is not the first time 'glitches' have occurred on holidays... remember gold on Thanksgiving 2014.

Why Startups Like Uber Stumble Over Problems They Could Have Avoided

News this week that Uber’s CEO was stepping down likely was not a surprise to those who have been following the company in the headlines. In our work over many years, we have learned enough to know that you have to be on the inside of any company to have the full picture of what went wrong and how. But we do know from our research that rapidly growing companies — especially unicorns like Uber — face a high risk of stumbling. As a business term, “unicorn” was coined to describe a rarity: In 2011 there were just 28 early-stage companies, still privately owned, with investment valuations of $1 billion or more. Today there are more than 200 unicorns, with a total value estimated by CB Insights at almost $700 billion. Uber is one of them: Its valuation rose to a record-setting $68 billion just seven years after its founding, despite reporting losses of more than $700 million in the first quarter of this year. But when we tracked those 28 unicorns (along with 11 similar companies with valuations of $600 million or more) over the period from 2011 to the present, we found that 33% failed to grow at all and another 28% grew less than expected. Nearly two in three died or stumbled. Unicorns and near-unicorns actually are much more prone to self-induced internal breakdowns than they are vulnerable to adverse events in the marketplace. And they’re not alone. One of the hardest acts in business is scaling a business rapidly and profitably. Bain’s research concludes that of all new businesses registered in the U.S., only about one in 500 will reach a size of $100 million — and a mere one in 17,000 will attain $500 million in size and also sustain a decade of profitable growth. More often, they trip over themselves. Research for our book The Founder’s Mentality found that 85% of the time, the barriers to growth cited by executives at rapidly growing companies are internal — as opposed to, say, external threats such as unreceptive customers, a misread business opportunity or the moves of a dangerous competitor. The title of our book celebrates the internal energy and sense of insurgency that propels rapidly growing companies, but the book also warns of four predictable internal growth barriers that all too often trip up these companies during their pursuit of scale. One of these is what we called the unscalable founder. We believe the founder’s mentality is a strategic asset. Nurtured correctly, it can help a company achieve scale insurgency — a company with the benefits of both size and agility. But many individual founders aren’t scalable. Individual founders can become a barrier to growth if they are unable to let go of the details and micromanage, or fail to build a cohesive team around them, or allow hubris to get in their way. We found 37% of executives at growing companies described the unscalable founder as a major barrier to their success. Scaling a business requires enormous determination — it’s like catching lightning in a bottle. Typically, founders discover a repeatable model of success that is extraordinary and are rewarded for ignoring distractions and focusing ruthlessly on that single insurgent mission and the repeatable model that delivers it. But over time the market changes and the company needs to change its model. The same founder who was rewarded for ignoring distractions previously is often the last person to adapt. The skills that help founders get their company to take off also are the opposite of those needed to sustain new growth. Founders focus on speed, ignore good process, and relish breaking the rules of the industry they are trying to disrupt. They cut corners, ignore detractors, and avoid naysayers. Their Herculean efforts are responsible for the firm’s creation, but also its chaos. Once the company reaches cruising altitude, its leaders need to listen more to competing voices and invest more time in emerging stakeholders. Founders also often are responsible for driving their teams to stretch and accomplish far more than ever seemed possible, often at enormous personal sacrifice. Yet this can make it impossible for them to replace or supplement these foundational team members with new professionals who can take the organization to the next level. The founder remains too loyal to the original team. Founders who both create and successfully scale their company are like lightning striking twice — the miracle of creation and the miracle of sustainable growth in the same person. That is rare. The other three barriers described in our book underscore the challenge. Some 55% of executives cite the problem of revenue growing faster than talent: The company grows so quickly that it has trouble attracting the quality and amount of talent that it needs. And as growth creates complexity, complexity becomes a silent killer of growth: 22% of executives cite a lack of accountability as the company expands and the rules become unclear. At its worst, this can breed a toxic culture. Perhaps most perplexing, 25% of executives cite loss of the voices at the front line as the growing company becomes preoccupied with internal matters, numbing it to customer feedback that can improve the business model or to the concerns of frontline employees. In our study of unicorns, we took a closer look at 10 that stumbled the hardest, companies like Groupon, Zenefits, Jawbone, GoPro, and Zynga — a group that experienced a peak-to-trough valuation decline of about 75% on average. We concluded that about half encountered major external market challenges that clearly contributed to the decline; we found that these external factors always impeded the progress of the company in combination with a well-documented internal breakdown. For instance, GoPro discovered that to really fulfill its growth potential it was going to have to not just become a manufacturer of small camera devices — a difficult business to defend against the large consumer electronics companies like Sony — but also create an ecosystem of services (uploading to the cloud) and products (drones with cameras) that would differentiate it in the future. This is what founder Nick Woodman described as becoming a sort of “mini Apple,” a much harder strategy to successfully execute. That challenge was reflected in a near 50% revenue shortfall in 2016 from what analysts had expected, ultimately triggering a decline in the company’s valuation down to $1 billion from its onetime high of $12 billion. In contrast to the moderate frequency of external breakdowns, literally every one of the fallen unicorns we studied encountered well-documented internal issues that contributed to or actually caused the stumble. Consider Zenefits, a provider of efficient online employee benefits services for small and medium-size companies. In early 2015 Zenefits announced that its revenues were going to increase by a factor of 10 that year, to $100 million, causing investors to flood it with money at a valuation of over $4 billion. The core idea for the company had been well proven, the market was certainly large and untapped, and Zenefits was clearly in the lead. Yet according to the company itself, Zenefits stumbled because it wasn’t prepared internally for scaling up. When its valuation collapsed by 55%, and its CEO-founder was replaced, the new CEO wrote an email to staff noting, “It is no secret that Zenefits grew too fast, stretching both our culture and our controls.’’ For instance, the company’s “frat-like” culture became too dysfunctional to run a tight operation in a highly regulated industry, and some of the measures taken to certify new employees in health insurance law became severely compromised. If these are the rock stars of business — surrounded by the best investors, boards, and advisers — what about the rest? To dig deeper into the challenges facing high-growth companies, we held more than 25 workshops across the world, assembling a group we called the Founder’s Mentality 100. These are companies that attained early success and scale, and showed further promise and desire to grow by five or even 10 times over the coming years. When we surveyed executives in these private discussion sessions, we found a consistent story: Only 15% of the time did these leaders feel that the primary threat to achieving their plans was external (a superior competitor, a new business model, government regulation, market shifts or saturation). The majority were internal factors — factors they should be able to control. When monitoring our health, doctors use a set of proven questions and tests. With so many company growth stories coming undone because of internal causes that their leaders could have controlled, what is the equivalent protocol to diagnose growing companies? We suggest asking these five questions to assess the general health of a business and its ability to grow to large scale: Is your founder scaling the team at a pace to address the opportunities and challenges of a scale insurgent? Do we have a talent plan to match our growth plan? If not, how do we close the gap? Is the voice of the customer and the front line as strong as it used to be? How do we know? Is our insurgent mission, so inspirational in the early days, still strong, or is it getting diluted? Do people still feel an owner’s mindset that drives accountability and immediate problem solving? If you are part of an organization with bold growth ambitions, make sure you are asking these five questions early and often.
