PFSweb, Inc. (Nasdaq: PFSW)
, an international provider of end-to-end web commerce solutions, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.
Mark Layton, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PFSweb, stated, “Fueled by new clients as well as increases in certain existing client activity, our Service Fee Equivalent Revenue increased 18% to $30.2 million, as compared to the third quarter of 2011. This growth, coupled with an ongoing focus on operating costs and efficiencies, resulted in an improved Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 to $2.8 million, a 300% increase over the same period last year. With these improved third quarter results and our current expectations of client volumes during this upcoming holiday season, we continue to target an annual increase in our Service Fee Equivalent Revenue for 2012 of 20%, and we are increasing our Adjusted EBITDA target to a range of $10 million to $12 million for the year.”
“This past quarter we finalized two new client programs, bringing our new client program count for 2012 to 10. In addition, we continue to have a robust new business pipeline with more than $50 million in average annual contract value based on client projections. To support new clients and our existing clients’ activity anticipated for this upcoming holiday season, we continue to make investments to bolster our overall capacity and reliability across all phases of our business. These enhancements are designed to provide our clients’ customers the outstanding shopping experience they desire,” added Mr. Layton.
“We are continuing to develop new solutions to position PFSweb as a leader in the eCommerce and omni-channel evolution through PFSweb’s Infinite Commerce Initiative. Our goal is to act as the global facilitator for all types of commerce for our clients across all channels and customer touch points. At this stage, we are extending our order management and eCommerce technology platforms to include cross-channel capabilities that fully integrate brick-and-mortar stores, client and third-party fulfillment facilities. We are also working on new mobile commerce capabilities, in-store customer support, kiosks and ‘clienteling’ apps,” continued Mr. Layton.
