Tucows' CEO Discusses Q2 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Ken Schafer – Executive Vice President of Products

Thank you, operator. Good afternoon. Thanks for joining us. With me is Michael Cooperman, our Chief Financial Officer and unfortunately due to a family matter our President and CEO, Elliot Noss is not able to be with us today. I’ll be taking his place.

Despite that this call will follow the usual format. I’ll begin with a brief overview of the financial and operational highlights for the quarter and then Mike will review our financial results in more detail. After that I’ll return with some concluding comments before opening up the call to questions.

Second quarter 2011 was another very solid quarter that was again indicative of the consistency and reliability in our business within the context of growth. Revenue grew by almost 11% for Q2 – sorry, from Q2 of last year to $22.6 million which was another record and cash provided by operating activities was $1.4 million after adjustments for non-cash working capital items. To discuss OpenSRS, we continued to perform well with an overall growth in revenue of 15%.

Total domain transaction volume for the quarter were up 15% to just over two million and that’s the second consecutive quarter that we topped the $2 million – sorry, two million mark in domains. New registrations were up 21% if we exclude the impact of two customers that became registrars on their own earlier this year. Renewals were up 15% and our renewal rate held steady at a level that remains well above the industry average. This growth in transaction push domains under management at the end of the quarter up 10% for the same period last year exceeding $11 million names for the first time.

The OpenSRS email service continue to experience the momentum that we’ve discussed in the last several calls. Revenue was up 8% year-over-year and mail boxes under management grew on both the year-over-year and sequential basis. We believe our overall competitive position is strengthening primarily due to our unwavering focus on wholesale relationships with service providers. And Q1 once again bore this out with a number of key competitive wins for OpenSRS. This week at HostingCon we announced the partnership with Parallels who is a leader in the hosting and cloud services space. The partnership integrates OpenSRS services directly into Parallels platform allowing for easy provisioning and management of their sorry of our services by Parallels customers from within Parallels control panels.
