“The lack of certainty and confidence continues to take a toll on our customers, who rely on a healthy CAPEX environment for growth. Not surprisingly, we continue to see cuts to marketing budgets, which adversely affect us. Despite this challenging environment, we continue to perform well against our competition”, said Greg Strakosch, TechTarget Chairman and CEO. “We are especially pleased with the 50% growth in 2012 in our international business, the initial market reception to our new product launch, IT Deal Alert™ and our healthy margins and cash flow”.
