The whole episode is about people trying to impress the people from their past. Ted tries to win over the professor with his new building and Daryl wants to impress Lily and Marshall with his business. However, after Marshall and Lily turn him down, he realises "he doesn't need the validation of some people he met in college". The money he wanted to give them was to get them to like him more/get them to acknowledge that he is a success. He no longer needs them to think he's cool so he just keeps the money.
