This is a little off topic, but since I have spent 2 days restoring my laptop after a Windows Update issue gone bad, I figured I would share some nifty widgets.

C-Beyond Expectations

February 22, 2008

Rich pointed out Cbeyond's 4th Q financials and they are amazing!

Highlights include:

  • 4th quarter net earnings = $12.5 million due to quarterly sales rising 31% to $76.9 million!
  • Cbeyond now has 35,041 customers in the 9 markets it has operations in; that's net 1754 customer adds this quarter, which is about 65 clients per metro per month!
  • ARPU is $750, up a dollar.
  • Mobile penetration = 24%

Cbeyond CEO Geiger did warn that the slowing economy might affect numbers the next 2 quarters, but they are watching their credit process and receivables. Cbeyond opens Miami this quarter. Minneapolis = the 11th market.
