ChannelAdvisor reports a profit as ecommerce sales continue to surge

MORRISVILLE – Ecommerce services provider ChannelAdvisor (ECOM) continues to grow revenues across multiple segments in a year in which income has surged beyond the increase in sales ignited across the world of online buyig ignited by COVID-19.

“We continued to execute extremely well in Q3, driving strong growth, record revenue, and adjusted EBITDA that exceeded the high-end of our guidance range for the quarter,” said David Spitz, ChannelAdvisor’s chief executive officer, in a statement, early Tuesday,

This growth is especially impressive considering it’s on top of last year’s elevated e-commerce volumes. The strength in our business is a direct result of our brands strategy and the growth investments we’ve been making to empower their digital transformations.”

ChannelAdvisor reported $41.6 million in a revenue – a record, the company said, which surged 18% year-over-year.

Third-quarter net income came in at $3.5 million.

The Morrisville-based company said it had net income of 11 cents per share. Earnings, adjusted for stock option expense, came to 21 cents per share.

The provider of cloud-based ervices posted revenue of $41.6 million in the period.

And Spitz sees more growth coming.

“We believe our focus on product innovation, channel expansion, strong sales and revenue retention positions us well to drive sustainable double-digit revenue growth and adjusted EBITDA [earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization] margin of at least 20%, consistent with the long-term financial targets we provided at our recent analyst day,” he said.

For the current quarter ending in December, ChannelAdvisor said it expects revenue in the range of $43.7 million to $44.7 million.
