06:20 EDTALLMarchex cuts 2014 call-driven revenue outlook due to revised Allstate commitment
Allstate (ALL) has indicated its desire to move to a fixed fee model going forward. Under this proposed model, Marchex’s (MCHX) economic upside would have been limited, while financial exposure to Marchex would have remained. Marchex does not believe it is in its best long-term interest to work under such an arrangement. Marchex will continue to work with Allstate as an integration partner utilizing its call analytics technology. Marchex expects this will be a relatively small financial contributor. Marchex CEO Russell Horowitz said, "“This outcome is disappointing, as we believe that a performance-based model is the way most companies are progressing. This is the trend we are seeing with our customer base... Beyond Allstate, we continue to experience growth in our customer base for call-driven advertising products and believe we are early in the customer adoption phase of mobile and call-driven advertising."
