Roger and Steve admitted that they believe their company is worth $4 million, while they have very little actual data about their own company’s performance as a service. It costs them about $4 to maintain a client’s subscription to their service while the client is required to pay $12. Most of the costs for the company come from telecommunications fees.
Some of the sharks were not interested at all in the Jolly Rogers Telephone Co. that Roger and Steve were trying to pitch to the sharks. In fact, Mark Cuban had already heard enough and dropped out because he could not relate to the company. Lori Greiner also had trouble understanding the company concept and decided to drop out.
