Raises Revenue and EBITDA Guidance for Full Year 2022

Thryv Holdings, Inc, the leading small business software platform, announced that it grew its SaaS revenue 26% year-over-year in the second quarter of 2022 and has raised revenue guidance for full year 2022.

“We are pleased to report a strong second quarter,” said Joe Walsh, Chairman and CEO. “We saw significant SaaS revenue growth, ahead of our SaaS revenue guidance targets. Importantly, this growth was driven by double-digit year-over-year increases in Thryv’s SaaS subscribers, as well as continued improvements in average revenue per unit – or ARPU. We also had an excellent quarter in our Marketing Services business which benefited from our recent acquisition of Vivial.”

Because of the solid results exceeding guidance, Thryv is increasing the projected full year SaaS and Marketing Services revenue and Adjusted EBITDA.

“In support of our goal of driving SaaS subscriber growth, we recently announced the hiring of Tami Cannizzaro as our Chief Marketing Officer. Tami is making a difference already, driving performance in our inbound channel as well as enhancing support of Thryv’s local sales team.”

“We are focused on driving growth, especially continued investment in subscriber growth, while ensuring we deliver on our guidance, both top line and bottom line,” Walsh continued. “In support of our goal of driving SaaS subscriber growth, we recently announced the hiring of Tami Cannizzaro as our Chief Marketing Officer.

“Our clients tend to be well established small businesses. They have historically been recession resilient as they mainly offer non-discretionary services. Adopting Thryv software allows these small businesses to more effectively manage their businesses, helping them reduce costs and improve their performance.”
