Company Highlights Strong Channel Growth and Continued Industry Recognition

CENTENNIAL, Colo. – March 15, 2010 – Verio Inc., the leading provider of online business solutions to SMBs worldwide, including business web hosting, application hosting and Software as a Service (SaaS), today announced record growth in its Indirect Channels and continued industry recognition.

Global OEM Program

In 2009, the company experienced strong success with its Global OEM program, resulting in 26 percent year over year revenue growth and the addition of several key partners. Verio’s Global OEM program provides telecommunication companies, cable providers and service provider organizations turnkey web hosting solutions and includes national carriers in fifteen countries and on 5 continents. OEM partners joining the program in 2009 include:

  • The premier information and communications technology company in the Philippines.
  • A leading provider of OSS software and network services, based in North America, and providing services to more than 230 broadband and cable operators worldwide.
  • A leading Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions provider in Indonesia.
  • One of Singapore’s leading information communication companies.
  • One of the world’s largest telecommunications companies operating in Brazil.

“The addition of these partners, along with strong growth from our existing customers, led to impressive revenue increases for the company in 2009,” said Steve Renda, Sr. Vice President Global Sales and Marketing for Verio┬«. “We were exceptionally pleased with the success of our Global OEM program which enables our partners to address new markets, expand their reach and grow their business at a time when many organizations are navigating through the economic downturn.”

More than 650 partners were added in 2009, and approximately sixty percent of new channel partner revenue is attributable to these new viaVerio Partners.
