We love the opportunity to meet our shareholders so we hope you can make it.

Thanks Rod, look forward to seeing you in Akld.
Have you moved forward with a referral scheme, 300,000 sales people seem like a good fit for Xero. 🙂
I know you have about 99% of users already flying the Xero brand, but an active referral programme seems like a natural fit for your business model and you’re now at real scale.

Looking to view the presentation slides. Also, Please give us the Net Income / loss guidance for financial year 2014-2015 although it is very early to say. I believe the company is progressing very well in its goals. There will be lots of things to be done.

We were in Sydney Central Station today. We saw a Xero Billboard outside the station and Xero advertisement inside the station. Hope you put an advertisement in major sport events.

Yes, I look forward to the Akl briefing also, I assume we do not need to register?

My questions as posted on our blog last week would be:

Competition is heating up in the online accounting space both locally and globally. How does Xero, both now and in the future, differentiate itself from its competitors? Especially compared with Intuit and QBO in the US. What is your point of difference?

Culture in the workplace. Xero has grown very quickly over the past few years both with paying users and the number of team members. How do you retain the ‘small startup/everyone mucks in’ culture when the company has this extreme growth? Is it a challenge to retain some of the team?

Xero has a very open API so third parties can connect to the accounting engine with relative ease. Where do you see the future for this to continue for Xero? And is there any intention to buy companies/systems to add to the suite of Xero services? This is in light of Intuit in the US buying Invitbox, an accounts payable processing system.

There is a lot of noise in social media especially on Twitter around Cloud Accounting with different vendors. Do you have a company policy with engaging with competitors? ‘Discussions’ around their products and/or pointing out limitations? Is it not a dangerous game to go down this road?

Thanks Rod and team, continue the great work!

Given that we have now passed $100m annualised revenue what are the plans for USA listing. Also given that Nasdaq is (arguably) significantly over valued at the moment would this have any impact on the timing of a said listing ?
