Model Summary: For the purposes of this high-level forecast, the primary drivers examined are COVID-19, Monthly Active Users (MAUs), and Average Revenue Per User (ARPU). More specifically, these three drivers are studied based on geographic significance, thus providing more insight into the company. In addition, other considerations included are advertising boycotts, R&D changes, the partnership with Jio, the effective tax rate, and stock buybacks.
