    A company with such facts is extreme undervalued: with only 36 million like today

    Fiscal 2013 Financial Guidance of Local Corp:

    Revenue - The company expects 2013 revenue of between $93 million and $95 million, which at the mid-point, is an increase of 12 percent, over the fourth quarter 2012 exit run rate.

    Adjusted Net Income – Adjusted Net Income for 2013 is expected to be at least $5 million, which would result in approximately $1 million in debt-free cash flow. The company defines debt-free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures

      Local Corporation Reaches Record Mobile, Organic and Total Search Traffic
      Press Release: Local Corporation – 5 hours ago.. .
      .

      IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

      Local Corporation (LOCM), a leading online local media company, today announced record mobile, organic and total search traffic for the first quarter 2013.

      The company reached mobile traffic of 32 million monthly unique visitors (MUVs) during the first quarter 2013, up 167 percent from 12 million MUVs during the year ago period.

      Organic traffic also continued to grow, representing 49 million MUVs during the first quarter, up 40 percent from 35 million MUVs during the year ago period.

      The company reached 106 million total MUVs during the first quarter, up 13 percent from 94 million MUVs during the year ago period.

      “Traffic volumes remain a key performance indicator for our business. We exceeded our first quarter expectations in each area, which provides us with a strong foundation for performance for the year,” said Heath Clarke, Local Corporation chairman and CEO.

      All site traffic and usage statistics are from third-party service providers engaged by the company. Quarterly MUV traffic is equal to the aggregate of each month's MUV traffic numbers in that quarter. Traffic and the company’s monetization of that traffic combine to determine its revenues for any given period. The company’s traffic volume alone for a period should not be viewed as demonstrative of its financial results for such period.

    • Local Corp has a tremendous first player advantage, as it has been strong influenced the local search since
      the early 2000's

      (1): About 25 million Monthly Unique Visitors from the flagship-site alone
      01/2013: 26,410,927 Monthly Unique Visitors
      02/2013: 24,017,605 Monthly Unique Visitors
      Decrease of 9.06% (February has only 28 days against 31 in January) against January and an increase of 38.64% year-over-year

      (2): Flagship-side directory of over 18 million local businesses

    • The Strategy of Local Corp

      We believe that we are in the early stages of a large and long-term business opportunity presented by the shift of local marketing budgets from traditional media formats to digital media formats. Our strategy for pursuing this opportunity includes the following key components:

      • • Access to a Desirable Demographic of Decision-Makers

        Our patented and proprietary technology allows us to consolidate an amalgamated and disparate set of local business listings, information and other data and combine it into a targeted, highly relevant results-set, which is presented in a useful and compelling manner. A majority of users on Local Corps flagship-site are females, aged between 25 and 45, with at least one child at home (the so-called “soccer moms”), a demographic that is deemed by many to be highly desirable because they generally have responsibility for 89% of bank accounts, 80% of healthcare decisions, and 50% of do-it-yourself projects and consumer product purchases. We designed the utility of our website to appeal to this group of targeted users.

    • The guidance for Yelp's revenues in 2013 ist with 211 million only the 2.2-fold of the 94 million reveneus of Local Corp, but the market-cap of Yelp ist with 1,570 million the 43-fold of the idiotic low 36 million of Lcoal Corp.

      And therefore my advice is very simple: Sell all your shares of Yelp and buy from the amount shares of Local Corp, bcause that is a divergence with the factor (!!!!!!!!!!) 20 between similar companies.

      SMB Marketing in 2013: 68% of small businesses to increase marketing budget
      David Kirkpatrick January 17th, 2013
      I recently came across research from AWeber that found 68% of small businesses plan on increasing their marketing budget in 2013, and a full 97% plan on at least maintaining their current level of marketing spending.That’s a very solid majority of small businesses that are putting more money into their marketing efforts.
      Source: Marketing Sherpa

      An excellent message for Local Corp with the offer Launch by Local: "That’s a very solid majority of small businesses that are putting more money into their marketing efforts."

      As mentioned, mobile use in general is only going up and, as we’ve said before, it is soon expected to surpass desktop use. The huge rise in mobility is evidence that on-the-go consumers aren’t just searching for things like restaurants and retail stores, but they’re looking for all kinds of businesses and products, including entertainment, professional services, healthcare, and groceries. So, don’t make the mistake of thinking your niche doesn’t need a mobile website.
