Dex One Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Performance

Dex One Corporation (NYSE: DEXO) today announced fourth quarter and full year 2012 results in line with previously provided guidance.

The quarter and year were highlighted by digital bookings growth of 29 percent and 34 percent, respectively.

Ad sales for the quarter and year declined 14 percent, in line with guidance. Quarterly bookings and revenue declined 13 percent and 14 percent, while annual bookings and revenue declined 13 percent and 12 percent.

“Dex One continued to deliver in 2012, as we met all stated guidance objectives,” said Dex One CEO Alfred Mockett. “Our team found a way to achieve our business goals despite the continuing pressure on our print business. We have stemmed the rate of ad sales decline, thanks in large part to our bundled sales strategy, and are aggressively selling bundles across our business.”

“Since early 2010, Dex One has retired $1.9 billion in debt and we have consistently met our financial obligations,” said Dex One CFO Greg Freiberg. “Concurrently, we have built a digital business with growth exceeding industry averages.”
