The infoUSA Group, which offers directory products, vertical industry databases, online mailing lists, marketing leads and retail consumer products, reported third-quarter revenue of $32.8 million, down 13 percent from last year. As was the case in the second quarter, the firm said an effort to migrate customers of these businesses to subscription products from one-time sales caused a short-term revenue reduction.
