Early in February, the company reported Q4 earnings of $0.11, an 18 cent beat.The stock reacted very well, moving from $9 a share to $14 in under a week, a 55% move. Since then the stock pulled back to the $11-$12 range.

CEO David Spitz went into detail on the quarter: 

“We had a very strong finish to the year, as our fourth quarter revenue and adjusted EBITDA were above the high end of our guidance ranges... Improvements in pricing, our focus on attracting and retaining larger retailers and branded manufacturers, and our emphasis on customer success helped produce a significant increase in gross merchandise value through our platform in the quarter, as well as continued growth in average revenue per customer. Revenue over performance came largely from a meaningful increase in variable subscription revenue and enabled us to exceed the $100 million mark in annual revenue for the first time in our company's history.”
