Constant Contact just announced that they will be making their Initial Public Offering under the (NASDAQ:GM) symbol CTCT. The IPO will have almost 7 million shares and the press release is shown below.
The information received by our company was in a newsletter form and shown below in the form it was received. This is very interesting news and will certainly give Constant Contact some available capital to further enhance their services.
I have used Constant Contact for many years off and on and they always seem to be the leading company in online marketing, a market which is harder and harder to break into as the spamming rules and laws get tougher and tougher. On of the companies I work with has been in business quite a while and although they have all legitimate business practices and good customer base, being seen as a spammer these days can be your worst enemy. Constant Contact is very zealous in this area and is probably a good reason for their success.
