If tibbr were really a $100MM business, wouldn't it be on their 10-K? Is it?

Tibco has 4,000 enterprises on its books; of the 1.5 million users of tibbr, some 40% are existing Tibco customers, while 60% are not. “We are leveraging Tibco’s customer base, but we are also reaching out to a whole new set of customers,” Ram Menon, president of Tibco’s social computing unit, told TechCrunch in an interview.

And increasingly it seems that its growth is not premises-based but in the cloud. Right now, some 60% of tibbr users are already using the social networking software in the cloud, and that proportion is on the rise.

There are no signs that tibbr will launch a freemium version of its service — Menon likes to highlight that when Yammer sold to Microsoft for $1.2 billion it had only about 800,000 paid users on its books, compared to tibbr’s 1.5 million. 

Their 10-k only breaks out revenue into licenses and services.

Tibbr is only mentioned once in their 2012 10-k:

"We have several hosted service offerings, including our tibbr and Loyalty Lab subscription services. We offer these services in a cloud deployment model where our software runs on third party infrastructure components such as servers, storage and network devices. The fees we receive for these services include subscription and maintenance and support fees."
