Synacor clients including cable, telecom, satellite and consumer electronics companies, use Synacor's Platform to deliver TV shows, movies, music, news, games, sports, email, tech support and other value-added services to their end-customers, across multiple connected devices.

Synacor, Inc. is headquartered in Buffalo, New York. " (10/18/2017)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe that GDPR could drive demand for Zimbra as customers will need to significantly tighten up security in front of the more stringent rules." (6/12/2017)
  • 3. 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)
  • 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)
