A lot of exposure will be on VTRO in the coming week when they go to the conference. Anything under $2 is a buy IMO

Can Vertro, Inc. Erase Mistakes that Sank Miva or Will Managementโ€™s New Direction Lead Down Same Path?
Posted on November 29, 2010 by Editor

Vertro, Inc. (NASDAQ: VTRO) has been doing all it can to erase its disturbing past as Miva, Inc. and while the Internet information provider has certainly moved away from the ugly fraud claims and inability to compete effectively there remain a number of questions surrounding the ability of management to direct the company down the path to success.

As it stands, that path will be determined by VTROโ€™s concentration on ALOT, their product portfolio that entails a toolbar, homepage, and desktop applications all designed to make using the Internet easier for consumers. Through this portfolio VTRO aims to provide these consumers with direct access to relevant content and search results through their queries.

Having shed the name Miva back in June 2009, Vertro has since completed a 1-for-5 reverse stock split that essentially enabled them to remain in compliance with NASDAQ listing requirements and has shown solid growth with their live toolbar, reporting earlier this month that they had topped 10 million users for the first time in company history, a figure that represents an 11% jump since metrics were reported on September 30, 2010. Of those 10 million, more than half were from the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, known as region one.
It is through this growth in ALOT users that VTRO aims to capitalize monetarily as the company has a number of third-party search and content agreements and the impressive figures in region one comes hope among shareholders that Vertro is heading in the right direction.

With the improvements has come a spike in share price as the company has gone from an adjusted close of 2.21 on August 18 following the reverse split to a 52-week high of 7.25 posted on November 26. Now the bets are being placed by investors, with many seeing shares surging past the 10.00 mark heading into 2011 while others are predicting a fall back to the 2.00-3.00 range.
A lot will be determined over the next several weeks as the web marketing firm can answer a lot of questions during the holiday season, essentially answering concerns about the companyโ€™s ability to capture a web market that is full of competition; competition which includes giants like Google.

What makes VTRO interesting is that shareholders can really have an effect on the companyโ€™s earnings. This can be done by shareholders actually using the services provided by VTRO to increase their monetization from those third-party search and content agreements; a huge advantage over something like a biopharmaceutical company that has developed a cancer treatment- if the shareholder isnโ€™t diagnosed with cancer then they wonโ€™t likely be using the drug.

Of course there has been some speculation that VTRO may be on the radar for a takeover and while some shareholders may be hoping for something like that to occur the immediate chances of that happening are pretty slim. VTRO is now seeing potential and such a takeover would involve a substantial investment, especially with the companyโ€™s recent growth report and their favorable third quarter figures that showed an increase in revenue to $9.8 million compared to second quarter revenue of $8.5 million.
Vertro knows that if it can just put some more space between itself and Miva then investors may shake off their old misgivings and accept the company for what it is and not what it was. It will take more than just time though, it will require a real dedication to doing things differently and that will require building a history of smart decisions. That could be a difficult task as Miva built a reputation of making poor decisions that cost them a shot at significant revenue through pay per click advertising, an arena they were in before Google.

Most perplexing to shareholders may be managementโ€™s insistence on holding on to the PPC model for as long as they did despite its massive cost to the company. While their ALOT product (then known as Miva Direct) was bringing in significant revenue that revenue was essentially being burned to keep Mivaโ€™s PPC plans alive. After nearly two years management finally had enough of the PPC game and sold the business and decided to focus on their ALOT portfolio, a decision that could have been made much earlier and benefited shareholders desperate for good news.

For VTRO to erase those painful memories they will likely poor a substantial amount of money into marketing, showing web users how their toolbar and applications are capable of producing better search results and making their web life a bit easier. Aside from their public relations campaign to โ€œmake the internet easy,โ€ VTRO will also need to continue developing their products, improving search results as well as encouraging its users to utilize the search function, and that would in turn produce more revenue. Most important to VTRO is retaining the consumers who use the toolbar and applications and if they focus their attention on that then there would be no reason for their business to slow.

Now that they have had an opportunity to settle some of the financial headache left behind by Miva the management of Vertro have a shot at doing things right, investors now just have to bet on whether they can learn from their past mistakes. As was stated before, this holiday season could determine whether or not the past gets buried and Vertro hits 2011 running. More and more people are turning to the Internet to satisfy their shopping needs and if those shoppers utilize the search function ties to the Vertro toolbar then it could be a very profitable quarter.

Google "contract" expires end of this month; VTRO making lots of money for GOOG,,, no reason for GOOG not to renew contract. I expect GOOGLE agreement to be announced in next 14-17 trading days.

Also expect PR in next 3-4 trading days to announce CYBER MONDAY as all time best profit day.

With such a small float, could be very interesting response to either AND BOTH of the two announcements.

Vertro, Inc. Regains NASDAQ Compliance

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - 09/01/10) - Vertro, Inc. (NASDAQ:VTROD - News) today announced that NASDAQ has notified the Company that it regained compliance with the minimum $1.00 per share bid price requirement for continued listing, and further, that it complies with all other applicable standards for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market. Accordingly, the Company will continue to be listed on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

As previously announced, following a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel"), the Panel determined to continue the Company's listing subject to the condition that, on or before September 13, 2010, the Company evidence a closing bid price of $1.00 per share or more for at least the ten prior consecutive trading days, among other things. On August 31, 2010, the Company's closing bid price was $2.00 per share, the tenth consecutive day it had exceeded the $1.00 per share threshold. Accordingly, the Company satisfied the Panel's condition and the bid price deficiency has been cured.

"We're delighted to have regained compliance with all applicable NASDAQ standards and to be focusing our efforts on growing our user base and revenue," commented Peter Corrao, Vertro's President and CEO. "We are enjoying sustained growth in our user base as we move through the third quarter, and continue to expect to achieve double digit sequential quarterly revenue growth."

Vertro's shares will continue to trade on NASDAQ under the symbol "VTROD" until the close of trading on Wednesday, September 15, 2010, at which point the fifth character "D" will drop off and the symbol will revert to "VTRO." The temporary addition of the letter "D" to Vertro's trading symbol is to indicate that a reverse stock split has occurred.

Vertro, Inc. Announces 1-for-5 Reverse Stock Split

Aug 17, 2010 16:30:12 (ET)


NEW YORK, NY, Aug 17, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Vertro, Inc. (VTRO, Trade ) today announced that it will effect a 1-for-5 reverse stock split of the Company's common stock, effective at the end of business today. Trading of Vertro's common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on a split-adjusted basis will begin at the open of trading on August 18, 2010.

On June 11, 2010, the Company's stockholders approved an amendment to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to implement a reverse stock split of shares of the Company's common stock issued and outstanding at a ratio to be established by the Company's Board of Directors in its discretion of between 1-for-2 and 1-for-5. The Board of Directors approved a 1-for-5 split.

The reverse stock split is intended to enable the per share trading price of the Company's common stock to satisfy the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing set forth in NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5550(a)(2). As previously announced, the Company has until September 13, 2010 to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock must meet or exceed $1.00 for at least ten consecutive trading days prior to September 13, 2010.

As a result of the reverse stock split, every five shares of Vertro will be combined into one share of common stock. Fractional shares resulting from the reverse stock split will be canceled and the stockholders otherwise entitled to fractional shares will receive a cash payment in an amount equal to the product obtained by multiplying (i) the closing sale price of our common stock on August 16, 2010, which was $0.45 by (ii) the number of shares of our common stock held by the stockholder that would otherwise have been exchanged for the fractional share interest.

Vertro's shares will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "VTRO" with the letter "D" added to the end of the trading symbol for a period of 20 trading days to indicate that the reverse stock split has occurred.

Letters of transmittal are expected to be sent to stockholders of record shortly after the effective date of the reverse stock split. Additional information about the reverse stock split is contained in the Company's proxy statement for the Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on June 10, 2010, which was filed with the SEC on April 30, 2010.

in Q1 2010;

-- GAAP net income from continuing operations of $0.2 million or $0.01 per
basic share in Q2 2010, compared to GAAP net income from continuing
operations of $0.5 million or $0.02 per basic share in Q1 2010. Q1 2010
GAAP net income included a non-recurring $0.3 million gain from the
sale of an Internet domain name;

We achieved continued growth in our user base both nationally and internationally, and we continued to expand the portfolio of apps we offer our toolbar and homepage users," commented Peter Corrao, Vertro's President and CEO.

"While we are pleased to have continued our recent trend of increasing sequential quarterly revenue, we believe our growth in the second quarter was tempered by our focus on regaining compliance with NASDAQ's shareholder equity requirement. We cautiously managed our customer acquisition program during the quarter to try and ensure that we could regain compliance with only a minimal capital raise. We are pleased to have now regained compliance with the NASDAQ shareholder equity requirement and expect to get back to more robust revenue growth for the remainder of 2010 and beyond."

Second Quarter 2010 Results from Continuing Operations

Revenue was $8.5 million in Q2 2010, compared to Q1 2010 revenue of $8.1 million.

Management Conference Call

Management will participate in a conference call to discuss the full results for the Company on Thursday, August 5, 2010, at approximately 4:30 p.m. ET. Details of the call for interested parties are as follows:


Date: Thursday, August 5, 2010
Time: 4:30 p.m. ET
Dial-in number: (877) 353-0044 / (970) 315-0525 (Intl.)
Live webcast: http://ir.vertro.com/events.cfm
Conference call replay: http://ir.vertro.com/events.cfm

Vertro believes that "EBITDA," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted net income/loss," and "Adjusted net income/loss per share" provide meaningful measures for comparison of the Company's current and projected operating performance with its historical results due to the significant changes in non-cash amortization that began in 2004 primarily due to certain intangible assets resulting from mergers and acquisitions that have since been written off. Vertro defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) plus non-cash compensation expense and plus or minus certain identified revenues or expenses that are not expected to recur or be representative of future ongoing operation of the business. Vertro uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as internal measures of its business and believes they are utilized as important measures of performance by the investment community. Vertro sets goals and awards bonuses in part based on performance relative to Adjusted EBITDA. Vertro defines Adjusted net income/loss as net income/loss plus amortization and non-cash compensation expense, plus or minus certain identified revenues or expenses that are not expected to recur or be representative of future ongoing operation of the business, in each case including the tax effects (if any) of the adjustment. Vertro believes the use of these measures does not lessen the importance of GAAP measures.

VTRO = PENNY NASDAQ LOOKING FOR A MULTI-BAGGER IMO

Here's why:

1. Last Q their turnaround efforts led to an EPS +.01 (w/o one-time gains). Company guidance is for further top and bottom line profitability improvement in future quarters.

2. Analyst estimates are for +.02 next Q, and +.11 EPS for the year and +.17 EPS for 2011. If true, this leaves VTRO insanely undervalued on a PE ratio basis.

3. VTRO has over 90% gross profit margins with SG&A costs steadily declining each quarter lately despite sales going up. This means that most of small increases in sales tend to go straight to the bottom line allowing for potential rapid EPS growth.

4. VTRO has some pretty decent institutional ownership. It's extremely rare to have a profitable and growing penny NASDAQ stock with institutional ownership.

5. VTRO needs to get over $1.00 to maintain its NASDAQ listing. I speculate that there will be a push from investors to help make that happen and as it gets closer to $1.00 the buying will pick up as the NASDAQ delisting fears wade off. Furthermore, I speculate that the next earnings report will be structured to blow away the street to help make the $1.00 bid price happen. How so? I speculate that certain expenses will be cut and/or delayed to at least temporarily boost numbers such as R&D expenses perhaps. (Note -- I have no basis on this speculation other than it just seems like the smart thing to do coupled with their steady ability to cut costs quarter after quarter in this successful turnaround effort)

All just my opinion. I have a small speculative position in VTRO. It's not my favorite stock in the world as I don't understand their business very much, but I do like their recent numbers vs. the cheap apparent price of the stock in light of those numbers.

Blinkx Bids approx. $41 Million For Ad Net MIVA

Video search index Blinkx wants to buy pay-per-click ad network MIVA, formerly FindWhat. The London - and San Francisco - based firm has offered $1.20 per share, valuing Miva at $41.13 million, a 54 percent premium on yesterday’s $0.78 close and funded by cash from both companies. Blinkx hopes that the acquisition would allow it to more quickly roll out the technologies it has developed over the last year - most notably its own video advertising program: "AdHoc".

The timing is interesting.
MIVA president and CMO Seb Bishop left the business this week after eight years, with CEO Peter Corrao now also assuming Bishop’s president role.
Its Q2 earnings come on Monday.
MIVA has offices in the US, UK, Germany, Italy, France and Spain.

This proposal lifted MIVA's shares approx. 33% today reaching $1.04/per share at the moment i type this article.

Now i wonder if this stock was brougt down on purpose and someone is getting ready for a MIVA takeover... or if it's just the bad overall market?
Did any of you heard any rummors? (probably not, cause even a rumor could bring this back to $2 at least).

Happy trading!
