On May 4, 2016, Synacor, Inc announced that it had secured a three-year contract to host web and mobile services for AT&T Inc.
On August 9, 2017, post-market, Synacor issued a press release entitled “Synacor Exceeds Second-Quarter 2017 Financial Guidance; Remains on Path to ‘3/30/300,’” announcing its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The press release stated in relevant part: “[T]he joint AT&T-Synacor team has made the strategic decision to prioritize portal engagement right now over monetization. We are seeing the results of this focus in deeper engagement metrics. We are already generating revenue from this new consumer experience, but we expect that additional monetization tactics will be turned on at a more deliberate pace, which will result in a longer ramp to full monetization. As a result, a significant portion of the revenue that we were expecting in Q3 and Q4 this year is delayed to 2018, and we are adjusting our financial guidance for 2017 accordingly. We believe that this engagement-focused strategy ultimately leads to a stronger, more sustainable business,” concluded Bhise.
