"We are seeing the early results of our initiatives to elevate our conversations with advertisers to become a more strategic and persistent marketing partner, while also executing on our goals of strong organic growth and profitability," said John Giuliani, chief executive officer of ValueClick. "We expect 2013 to be a watershed year for ValueClick, and we look forward to articulating our vision and strategic initiatives in greater detail at our March 14th analyst and investor day."

  • Revenue of $199.6 million, up 14 percent from the fourth quarter of 2011 (Q4 2011);
  • Adjusted-EBITDA of $77.1 million, up 26 percent from Q4 2011;
  • Adjusted-EBITDA margin of 38.6 percent versus 34.8 percent in Q4 2011;
