“We delivered strong financial results again in the third quarter, with revenue and adjusted EBITDA that both exceeded our guidance for the quarter,” said David Spitz, ChannelAdvisor’s chief executive officer. “What excites me even more is the strong performance we had in sales, especially with brands, and overall outstanding revenue retention for the quarter, both of which combined to drive an acceleration in fixed revenue growth.
