Domain name registrar gets one step closer to IPO.
GoDaddy filed an amended S-1 statement with the SEC today that revealed fourth quarter and full year 2014 financials, as well as the company’s planned NYSE stock ticker GDDY.
Fourth quarter revenue at the company grew to $371.7 million, up from $356.9 million in the third quarter and $305.9 million in the same quarter of 2013. The company reported a net loss of ($26.8) million for the quarter, about in line with the third quarter.
For the year, total revenue increased $256.4 million, or 22.7%, to $1.4 billion. The company reported a loss of ($143.3) million for the year. (The company reports an adjusted EBITDA number that is positive.)
Total customers increased 1.1 million on the year to hit 12.7 million.
While the domain name business continues to grow, it makes up a smaller percentage of the company’s business each quarter as the hosting and business application segments grow at a faster clip.
I ran the amended S-1 through Intelligize’s comparison tool. Most of the changes were related to security and compensation.
