Synacor Reports Second Quarter Results

  • Quarterly revenue of $26.7 million vs. $30.8 million in prior year
  • Quarterly adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 million, 11th consecutive quarter of positive results

BUFFALO, N.Y., Aug. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synacor, Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNC), leading provider of next-gen startpages, award-winning TV Everywhere solutions, and cloud-based Identity Management (IDM) services across multiple devices for cable, satellite, telecom and consumer electronics companies, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2013.

"While our second quarter results met our guidance, I believe we have more potential than this quarter reflects," said Synacor CEO Ron Frankel. "In 2013, we continue to invest significantly in new products that deliver compelling experiences on three platforms: smartphones, tablets, and traditional laptop/desktop computers. We have significant demand for these new products, and I expect they will drive growth in 2014. While our sales pipeline is strong, the timing of launches is often difficult to predict. As a result, we are lowering our guidance for 2013 but remain confident in the long-term prospects for Synacor as we look forward to growth in 2014."
