“ChannelAdvisor Corporation’s (ECOM – 3Q results beat our estimates and the Street’s from top to bottom. Revenue upside was driven by continued strength in gross merchandise value (GMV) growth, along with improved revenue retention and an increasing contribution from strategic partner revenue. Amazon’s marketplace continued to grow well for ECOM during the quarter, but this was somewhat offset by a sequential deceleration in marketplace growth with eBay. The gross margin was slightly below our assumption but offset by lower operating expenses. As a result, adjusted EBITDA exceeded management’s guidance, our estimate, and consensus. Pro forma EPS were also above our estimate and consensus.”
