that leads to that conclusion. It is found in the following press release:
Tel Aviv, Dec. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Radware Ltd., which makes software to improve Internet server efficiency, is expected to rise as the volume of traffic on the Internet grows, Business Week reported in its "Inside Wall Street" column. Martin Pyykkonen, a CIBC World Markets analyst, said while there are competing products, Radware, whose customers include Intel Corp., Bell Atlantic Corp. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc., has "solutions (that) offer the most comprehensive features and performance capabilities." Salomon Smith Barney analyst Chuck Jones said Radware, with 14 percent of the Internet traffic-management market, second only to Cisco Systems Inc.'s 44 percent, "is on the rise" and has "a compelling valuation" based on its business outlook, Business Week said.
Radware first sold shares in the U.S. in September at $18, and they've risen three-fold to close at 50 5/16 today
------------- You will notice it states that RDWR is second only to CSCO. Thus, RDWR has more market share than FFIV. FFIV may have triple the revenue, but that doesn't really have anything to do with market share. The fact is that FFIV's market share MUST be less than 14% as is made clear in the article. To me the fact that FFIV's sales took off the quarter after they had an IPO makes it clear that the money raised was used to boost their sales force, much like RDWR says they are doing now.
