TheMarkets.com Reports Record 2007 Results

30 January 2009

TheMarkets.com, a leading provider of research, estimates and workflow solutions to institutional investors worldwide, announced today that its revenues grew 55% in 2007, in keeping with its growth trend of the past four years. The Company continues to outpace the market year after year, with 2007 capping a three-year period during which TheMarkets.com more than quadrupled revenues. The Company also reported that it has expanded its unique research content, while growing its client footprint to include over 2000 firms globally.

For 2007, TheMarkets.com reported a firm-record 94% renewal rate on subscriptions to its research platform. Since its launch, the platform has consistently achieved better than 90% renewal rates, reflecting customer loyalty among the leading buy-side firms using the product, including 77 of the world’s largest 100 hedge funds, 38 of Europe’s 50 top asset managers, 20 of the 25 largest U.S. asset managers and 32 of the world’s 50 biggest private equity funds. Additionally, existing accounts significantly expanded their subscriptions to include new teams, offices and countries. One client, Pioneer Investment Management, which has used TheMarkets.com for over five years, deployed TheMarkets.com in offices in ten countries across three continents in 2007.

Also last year, TheMarkets.com enhanced its research platform, launching TheMarkets.Bullseye, a search engine and alerting system, developed in partnership with InfoNgen, that combines research content with news and blogs. John Barrett, a senior equity analyst at Columbia Management and subscriber to TheMarkets.com for the past four years, notes, “I use TheMarkets.com all the time. It has the global research, estimates and models I use in my analysis and its robust searching capabilities—especially watchlists—make that content easy to find. Bullseye has made my watchlists even more helpful; it pulls news from a huge number of sources and puts it right alongside my research. In short, I’m getting more relevant content and spending less time searching for it with TheMarkets.com.”
