First Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue of $40.2 million, down 5% year-over-year
  • Operating profit of $7.0 million, down 13% year-over-year
  • Net income of $4.6 million
  • Earnings per share of $0.31, compared to $0.36 in the prior-year period

Travelzoo Inc., a global Internet media company, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014, with revenue of $40.2 million, a decrease of 5% year-over-year.

"Our European business delivered strong results. North America reported weak revenue. North America was impacted by a reduction in Search marketing spend and slow Local voucher sales," said Chris Loughlin, chief executive officer. "A positive highlight is the record number of mobile downloads we saw in the quarter. We believe in our strategy of quickly adapting to mobile usage."
