Details Strategic Plan to Drive Long-Term Growth and Value Creation as Customer Support Demands Evolve
Services Program Provides Distinct Advantages in Accelerating Nexus’ Capabilities and Features
Redwood City, Calif. – November 17, 2015 – Support.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPRT), makers of cloud-based Nexus® software for Support Interaction Optimization (SIO) and a leading provider of tech support and turnkey support center services, today announced that it has filed an updated investor presentation with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it will be using with stockholders as part of the Company’s ongoing program to meet with investors and solicit their views and opinions regarding its strategy for driving long-term growth.
The presentation discusses in detail the value-enhancing strategy that Support.com’s Board and management team is executing to position the Company for long-term success in the rapidly evolving support industry.
Among other things, the presentation outlines Support.com’s leadership position in the premium technical support market and the innovative technology solutions it is deploying to meet increasingly complex and changing support needs, which are driven by the proliferation of connected devices and the importance consumers are placing on customer service as part of their purchasing decisions. It also highlights the progress the Company has made diversifying its Services offerings and leveraging its unique premium technical support program to accelerate and enhance its Nexus capabilities and features.
“Our Board and management team have taken decisive actions to put Support.com on a clear path to deliver long-term value for our customers and stockholders,” said Elizabeth Cholawsky, Support.com’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “As evidenced by the progress made last quarter, our strategy is beginning to pay off. In Services, we signed up new partnerships and programs, including expanding our IoT capabilities, and in Nexus, seat licenses doubled sequentially and the average number of customer sessions per week increased 40% from the second to third quarters. We are encouraged by these initial results and believe we have the right strategy and team in place to effectively carry out our stockholder value creation plan. In the coming weeks, we plan to meet with our stockholders and look forward to hearing their feedback as we continue executing against our key strategic initiatives aimed at driving operational and financial improvements.”
Support.com strives to maintain constructive, ongoing communications with all of its stockholders and values their input and opinions. Stockholders interested in learning more about the Company’s strategic initiatives for delivering long-term value, or speaking with a member of the management team, should contact Jeanne Carr at MacKenzie Partners (212.929.5916).
