  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "The Trade Desk is a technology solution that enables agencies and other ad buyers to purchase online advertising through its self-service platform, using data to drive the best possible advertising decisions. The company charges its clients (agencies) a technology fee for using its platform, which is transparent and shows detailed performance metrics to its clients. The Trade Desk’s platform allows its clients to buy advertising across a wide swath of digital channels, including Display, Video, Mobile and Native, with TV also coming. TTD generated $203MM in revenue in 2016 and $66MM in EBITDA." (5/11/2017)
  • 3. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe Synacor has put the heavy lifting behind it as the company has re- positioned to benefit from the market shift from desktop search revenue to cross platform customer engagement centered around digital—video, mobile, and smart ad delivery. Large deals and recent acquisitions have helped Syn- acor scale and build a unique product portfolio to deliver these multi-platform experiences that drive engagement across devices. More specifically, the re- cently announced AT&T (T:NR) transaction which will nearly double revenues over the next few years is a significant validation of the product strategy and management team. Management continues to build out the product portfolio to support this shift via recent acquisitions that focus on building the recurring rev- enue base (Zimbra) and delivering a cross platform advertising platform (Technorati)." (4/18/2017)
  • 4. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "SYNC reported 4Q16 revenue of $34.9mm, (up 8% y/y and 3% below our estimate), Adjusted EBITDA of $1.2mm (down 59% y/y, but well above our estimate of $0.4mm) and an EPS loss of $0.09 (better than our loss of $0.10 estimate). The good news for SYNC shareholders is that the bulk of the OpEx and CapX spending (nearly $10mm) required to on-board ATT is now behind SYNC. ATT should double SYNC's mobile ad inventory available for sale, although we note that CPMs on mobile platforms are typically 1/3-1/2 of desktop CPMs. We expect the financial benefits from the ATT deal will begin in 3Q17 and extend for the next several years. SYNC continues to guide to $300mm of revenue in FY19. We retain our Hold rating, awaiting data about the ROI levels on SYNC's ATT investment." (3/16/2017)
