ExactTarget reports record quarterly revenue

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

ExactTarget reported on Thursday that increased global sales and an acquisition helped the Indianapolis-based e-mail marketing firm bring in record quarterly revenue.

First-quarter revenue climbed 37 percent, to $29 million, compared to the same period in 2009. That marks the 37th consecutive quarter of growth, co-founder and CEO Scott Dorsey said in a prepared statement.

“Our continued quarter-on-quarter growth is a solid reflection of our unsurpassed ability to provide marketers the technologies and expertise they need to compete and win in an ever-changing interactive marketing landscape,” he said.

ExactTarget increased its revenue last quarter by growing sales outside of North America by 150 percent, by acquiring enterprise Twitter platform CoTweet in early March, and by signing new clients and retaining existing ones, the company said.

Founded in 2008, San Francisco-based CoTweet is a Web-based business that helps companies manage multiple Twitter accounts. The company’s clients include Whole Foods, McDonald's, Microsoft Corp. and Ford Motor Co.

Also in the first quarter, the ExactTarget established a “social media lab” in San Francisco to spearhead social media product development and hired more than 70 employees, bringing its total headcount to more than 600.

  • I don't think it means what you think it means....
    ExactTarget is a SaaS company that has nothing to do with Target or Walmart.
  • Good!
    I much prefer to shop at Target than WalMart. I want it to do well. Compared to WalMart, it is always so clean and orderly-a pleasure to shop there.

    1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

    2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

    3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

    4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

    5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
