Local Corporation (NASDAQ: LOCM), a leading online local media company, today reported its financial results for the second quarter 2012.
“The company grew revenue 75 percent over the year ago period and we achieved record organic, mobile and total traffic in the second quarter. We began test-selling our complete digital media solution for SMBs, which is a key growth strategy for the company. We’ve been encouraged by both the positive feedback from our customers and significantly lower churn compared to prior offerings, and plan to grow our direct and channel sales capabilities into next year,” said Heath Clarke, Local Corporation chairman and chief executive officer. “We’re seeing lower monetization over the summer months than in prior years due to a different blend of ad partners, but anticipate monetization will strengthen again after Labor Day and through to Christmas, resulting in an expected strong fourth quarter. We’re exploring the divestiture of the Rovion business and have moved that to an asset-held-for-sale. As a result of the foregoing, we are increasing our Adjusted Net Income guidance for the year on slightly lower revenues.”
