5:34 pm
customers in the market, major banks and government agencies -- we did 70 deals of over $100,000, and what ended up happening is that it to a decelerate rate of 2019, and that was lower than analysts expectations, hence the pressure on the stock. the reason for this is we are transitioning from a single part company to a multiproduct company, and as we do that come at the way we are selling is to bigger customers and bigger deals i want to make sure we set ourselves up for a good foundation for the year that would have leverage for excluded growth you do for later this year or especially next year. we are on a path for over a billion in revenue but we want to be conservative and how we are guiding. emily: now that you have seen the numbers and they have filed to go public, are you concerned
5:35 pm
about the competition? aaron: i don't think the numbers change the competitiveness of the business. know had a general high-level how they perform come and dropbox intel's two types of companies, consumer revenue business which is 60 or 70% of revenue, like you and i using it for professional or personal use. and then a third of revenue is b2b. it is part of the business that looks like anything like box and tilts more towards small business or teams where is our revenue goes to midsized companies. the have been trying in past five or 10 years -- and they have and the tilting focus back to where they are good, on the consumer side. our company has evolved to look very different and the kind of salesforce and consultants and professional services you need, compliance, regulatory control if the building to the platform.
5:36 pm
they end up looking like a different company in scale, so the think our 1800 employees do everyday is different than what dropbox employees do. even though in name we are similar and let you store and share files, the general electric of the world and needing a different type of optionality, and that is what we largest focus on. emily: any advice? aaron: i generally don't give advice to competitors, but the more we can build as clear as possible our two businesses, the better. it will put a massive spotlight on this industry, and that is good for us. we are collectively going after a 40 to $50 billion market, and so we are focusing more on enterprises and their focusing on consumers and s&p's, and there is consumers for both of our businesses. emily: where are the futures out there of companies you might like to acquire? aaron: i am not going to announce any moves today.
5:37 pm
emily: why not? pr and the sec has problems of this, but some they will get their. re. we are focused on organic investment and rmb -- but the best way to think about our roadmap is, if you are a 50,000 person company or 100,000 person company and our is forming how your business works, if you are a bank or life-sciences company or a government, want to be a backbone of how you manage security and information, and we are products that bring more intelligence and ai to the box. solutions go into compliance to better serve customers, and they tend to be the folks areas of business right now. emily: bloomberg has confirmed that gary cohn is leaving his post at the white house. sachs, doesoldman

5:39 pm
very pro-trade and oriented towards a growth economy, and so i think this could put risk for policies. this is what matters a lot of these roles, who is advising the president and ultimately what are the policies we see and acted. having somebody like gary out of the system not advising trump -- i can't imagine is a positive thing. emily: great to have you here on the show. thank you so much. we'll talk much more about gary cohn's resignation. top economicmp's advisor gary cohn is stepping down and president trump says in a statement that gary has been my chief economic advisor and done a superb job of driving the agenda and reforms unleashing the market economy once again. talent and i thanked him for his dedicated service to the american people. we will continue to bring you

presidential administrations. he did orchestrate the tax bill and said that was the reason he was there to try to get that through. issue if it isme truly tax reform, there are a lot of people critical of that tax package. you'll be interesting to see who replaces gary cohn in this issueadministration and what ie going to be -- or she, going to be part of the free trade wing or protectionist wing. emily: what do you suspect? suspect it will be more towards the protectionist wing. this has been a pro business ministration, and the issue of being protectionist has not been suspect it will be more towards the protectionist wing. tremendously fulfilled by the trump administration so far. the tariffs are the strongest efforts yes taken on that front, and is donald trump doubling down on his rhetoric? and thatry well be,
5:45 pm
will not be good for business as the markets have shown. emily: where do you think gary cohn's ends up after this? some thought he was going to be that heir apparent at goldman sachs. so what next? after his departure comes the end of powell was rehired by goldman sachs and elevated. the idea of him returning is probably a nonstarter. i do think -- there was disenchantment with him and the firm, will he return to wall street? he has some credentials he has to reestablish with wall street. don't forget, his tax package removed local and state productions in places like new york where investment bankers live, and california. he does philanthropic work, he is active in that area, remains to be seen.

a free trade and market forces within the administration but ultimately donald trump runs his presidency and every thing goes to him. accomplished tax reform and do regulation, and it looks unlikely delegate infrastructure. it will be interesting to see, who gets this position after. if it is peter navarro, who seems to be ascending, i think that sends a very troubling message to some participants in the market feel that the progrowth globalization that has propelled the economy for so long will be held back. emily: it is not just about gary cohn, there are reports of other departures coming -- in the last few weeks we have seen more turnover than any administration in history. marty: that is true, and what is troubling is that inability -- this seeming disruptive atmosphere to attract and hire really quality people.
