Yahoo Sees Revenue, Profit Growth

Share this article:
Yahoo said yesterday it continued to benefit from the online advertising industry's rebound in the third quarter.


The Sunnyvale, CA, company reported sales, excluding money paid to search partners, totaling $655 million in the quarter, an 84 percent increase from a year earlier. The company recorded net income of $124 million, nearly double its results from the year-ago period.


Including the $129 million Yahoo gained from selling shares of Google, the company's net income for the quarter was $253 million.


The strength of the online ad market again led the way for Yahoo. Its marketing services revenue for the quarter was $765 million, up from $245 million in 2003. The increase results mainly from Yahoo's acquisition of Overture Services, its paid listings arm.


Yahoo expects a robust fourth quarter, projecting sales of $710 million to $760 million. It anticipates operating income prior to amortization and depreciation of $285 million to $315 million.
