Google's ambition is to become a $100 billion revenue company, CEO Eric Schmidt said. He claims Google is putting systems in place to help reach that scale during 2006:
"I'll leave it to you to judge whether that is $100 billion in market capitalisation or revenue," Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt said when discussing priorities for 2006. As of Wednesday, Google's market capitalisation was over $111.5 billion.
Priority goals also include improving the quality of its core Web search and advertising businesses, boosting the size of its Internet audience and expanding the number of products, services and business partnerships, he said.
"It looks to us like international growth is very strong and likely to remain so for a very long time," he said.
