“Against a backdrop of significant macro-economic disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are encouraged by the resilience of small businesses and their drive to adapt. As we noted in our preliminary update two weeks ago, we see secular demand for our products and services and are pleased with our subscriber additions and revenue growth. As we execute the second half of 2020, we remain focused on investments that we believe will increase the value we deliver to our customers, including an expanded solution set. As such, we are pleased to announce that we signed an agreement to acquire Retention Science, an AI-driven provider of e-commerce email marketing services.”
Meanwhile, Endurance International Group Holdings acquired Retention Science for approximately $35.0 million, consisting of $17.5 million to be paid in cash upon close. The closing of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close on or before August 15, 2020.
The Retention Science platform allows the company to complement its e-commerce capabilities following the acquisition of Ecomdash last year and supports our strategic focus on investing to expand our total addressable market,” according to Mr. Fox.
