You take something like RingCentral. It doesn’t need any more money or financing: it is relatively mature, recurring revenue business – not really worried – but you know, we could sell it tomorrow.

Who cares if the locker room would embrace Conor McGregor.

I think, and there’s a pretty strong economic consensus on this, that at that juncture you should spend more, even though it may sound illogical to some people when the revenues are down, but spend more to juice things up and then do the cuts later once you’re back, your economy is back in gear and running.
