Google Tried To Buy Color For $200 Million. Color Said No. | TechCrunch:

This was well before Color launched, and Google was looking at the company’s potential as well as the team. Google offered $200 million for the company, according to our sources. Color turned down the deal, say our sources. They then raised $41 million in debt and equity capital from Bain, Sequoia Capital and Silicon Valley Bank. That round valued the company at $167 million.

Hahaha. Tech bubble A+.
