Cvent Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2013 Financial Results

Cvent, Inc. (NYSE: CVT), a leading cloud-based enterprise event management platform, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

“We delivered a strong finish to 2013, highlighted by fourth quarter revenue growth of 30% compared to a year ago,” said Reggie Aggarwal, Chief Executive Officer of Cvent. “This performance reflects our belief that the marketplace is choosing our solutions to replace manual processes at all stages of the meetings and events lifecycle, serving both meetings and events planners on one side, and hotels and venues on the other. Our continued momentum is driven by the addition of numerous, diverse, new customers to Cvent, as well as by continued strong renewals and upgrade activity with existing customers across our broad portfolio of products.”

Aggarwal added, “As we look ahead, we remain optimistic about Cvent’s growth opportunity, which is evidenced by our guidance for continued strong growth. We are still in the early stages of ramping investments in our long-term growth initiatives following our IPO in 3Q13, and we believe continued execution of our strategy will enable us to meaningfully scale our business and continue to take a disproportionate share of the large opportunity in front of Cvent.”
