  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "LIMELIGHT NETWORKS, INC. is a content delivery partner enabling the next wave of Internet business and entertainment.

  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "LLNW delivered solid 4Q results that handily surpassed consensus expectations. A laser focus on cost management is driving material improvement in margins. Management appears to be finding a path of sustainable growth and improved profitability. Gross margin guidance of at least 150 bps of expansion in FY17 suggests to us that R&D investments are beginning to bear fruit, as incremental network capacity can be added at relatively low incremental cost, coinciding with steady growth in OTT content. During the quarter, the gross margin expanded by an impressive 387 bps YOY; the adjusted EBITDA margin surged by 478 bps YOY . Looking into FY17, management plans to increase marketing spending (following lower YOY marketing spending in FY16), which should benefit the top line and drive EBITDA growth, in our view. However, we also see AKAM moving more aggressively in the marketplace to replace lost revenue from DIY service providers, which could affect LLNW’s ability to sustain momentum. With that said, we maintain Market Perform and our $2.50 price target." (2/9/2017)
