Second quarter revenue and profitability exceeded high end of guidance
Added 25,700 net new subscribers
Average Revenue Per User of $14.09 grew $0.20 sequentially
Deployed strong cash flow to reduce debt balance by $31.5 million in second quarter
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Web.com Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:WWWW), a leading provider of internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.
"Web.com posted strong results for the second quarter, with both revenue and profitability exceeding the high end of our guidance," said David Brown, Chairman and CEO of Web.com. "We are delivering on our strategy of consistently and profitably adding net subscribers, generating average revenue per user expansion across our three million plus subscribers and achieving best-in-class customer retention levels."
Brown added, "We see a long runway of opportunity in cross-selling and up-selling our substantial installed base of domain name customers with our higher value-added services. We believe that Web.com is well positioned to accelerate revenue growth as we exit 2013, making progress toward our longer-term target of low-teens revenue growth. We also continue to generate substantial profitability and cash flow, enabling the company to continue investing in growth initiatives and at the same time de-leveraging our balance sheet."
