"2012 was an exceptional year for CoStar both financially and strategically," said Andrew C. Florance, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CoStar. "We closed the LoopNet acquisition, and I am very pleased with the early successes we are achieving as we continue integrating the two companies. In the 10 months since we closed the acquisition of LoopNet, we have achieved cost synergies of approximately $18 million. We are successfully upselling LoopNet information users to CoStar information services. CoStar has now sold approximately $10 million of annual contract value in information services to LoopNet members who previously only had a $160,000 commitment. Similarly, we have sold $1.7 million of LoopNet marketing services to CoStar clients."
