08:05 EDTBCOR, GOOG, YHOOBlucora renews Google contract with three year extension
Blucora (BCOR) disclosed in a regulatory filing last night that its subsidiary InfoSpace entered into the Google Services Agreement with Google (GOOG). The term of the GSA begins on April 1, 2014 and runs to March 31, 2017, and accordingly it will replace the companies' prior agreement when the prior agreement expires in accordance with its terms on March 31, 2014. In addition, the term of the GSA may be extended until March 31, 2018 upon the mutual agreement of the parties. Under the terms the GSA, InfoSpace can display search results and advertisements from Google on InfoSpace’s owned and operated search websites and provide Google search results and advertisements to the websites in InfoSpace’s distribution network. Google pays InfoSpace a percentage of the revenue collected by Google as a result of Internet users clicking on advertisements provided by Google and displayed by InfoSpace and its distribution partners. In general, the material terms of the Prior Agreement and the GSA are similar, Blucora said. However, beginning on April 1, 2014, InfoSpace will no longer display ads provided by Google’s AdSense for Search for search traffic that originates from mobile and tablet devices. For this mobile and tablet traffic, InfoSpace instead intends to display mobile advertisements from other sources, including Yahoo!’s (YHOO) ad network. "While the impact of this change is limited to a relatively small subset of our current search business and may be partially offset by the alternative advertising sources, we expect this change will result in slowing of InfoSpace’s search business revenue growth rate and, if we are unsuccessful or limited in our ability to transition our search services to provide value to mobile and tablet end-users, this change may result in a longer term negative impact on InfoSpace’s search business," Blucora said. InfoSpace will continue to display ads provided by Google’s AdSense for Search for search traffic that originates from desktops and laptops. This traffic constituted approximately 85% of the revenue generated by InfoSpace’s search business in 4Q13, and the revenue share percentages that determine the payments that InfoSpace receives from Google for this traffic remain unchanged from the prior agreement. The other changes in the GSA consist of revisions to Google’s form of service agreement, minor changes to the legal terms, and updates to reflect changes in the relationship since the prior pact was signed in 2005 and these other changes are not expected to materially affect InfoSpace’s operations or financial results, Blucora stated.
