    Don’t know if anybody remembers the Prosper Days ’06 Town Hall meeting where Mr. Kagle said of Prosper (emphasis mine), “Building a great company is a journey, it’s an adventure, it’s a privilege to be able to *PARTICIPATE* in it. We’re just getting started here. I can’t even imagine even spending a cycle for the next couple years thinking about what an exit might be financially. That’s completely off the radar screen.”

    Yeah, he had his hands on a few Prosper levers.
