“The second quarter of 2017 saw continued strong performance across all areas of the business our first full quarter following the Enom acquisition in January, which combined to drive year-over-year growth in revenue of 78% to a record $84 million, record earnings per share of $0.50 and cash flow from operations of more than $8.1 million,” said Elliot Noss, President and Chief Executive Officer, Tucows Inc.
“We continue to execute well on each of our strategic initiatives. Our domains team made great progress on the integration of Enom toward significant future synergies and, in fact, exceeded our expectations year to date on organic growth. Our Ting Mobile business continued to add customers on the core base and saw the lowest monthly churn from our core base in two years. Ting Internet continued its steady climb in Charlottesville, ramped significantly in both Westminster, Maryland and Holly Springs, North Carolina and, most importantly, took meaningful operational steps toward scalability far beyond our existing Ting Towns.”
Net revenue for the second quarter of 2017 increased 78% to $84.2 million from $47.2 million for the second quarter of 2016.
Net income for the second quarter of 2017 increased 29% to 5.2 million, or $0.50 per share, from $4.1 million, or $0.39 per share, for the second quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA1 for the second quarter of 2017 increased 50% to $10.3 million from $6.9 million for the second quarter of 2016. The increase in EBITDA was largely driven by the acquisition of Enom and to a lesser extent growth in the Company’s Ting Mobile and incumbent Domains business.
Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the second quarter of 2017 were $15.1 million compared with $15.0 million at the end of the first quarter of 2017 and $5.9 million at the end of the second quarter of 2016.
