“As we move into 2021, we are excited to continue to share more about our growth strategy and where we are headed as a Company,” said Mr. Reed. “With the significant progress we’ve made since the merger to reduce our outstanding term loan, effectively capture significant synergies, and integrate our legacy companies, we expect to squarely focus on our forward business opportunity. We see a clear path to becoming a subscription-led business and believe it will be led by aggressively growing our digital-only subscriptions to 10 million in the next five years and becoming a leader in digital marketing services for small and medium sized businesses.”
