August 1, 2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug 1, 2007 (PrimeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) --

Website Pros, Inc. (Nasdaq:WSPI), a leading provider of website technology, services and Internet solutions for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced results of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2007.

David Brown, President and CEO of Website Pros, stated, "We were pleased with the company's financial performance in the second quarter, which was highlighted by revenue and profitability that were at the high-end of our guidance. During the second quarter, we saw a continued re-acceleration in the momentum of our web services offerings, as reflected by its number of net new subscribers increasing by over 100% sequentially. We expect to continue making incremental progress, building on the improvements of the past 9 months, and we are confident that our web services business is back on track to delivering consistent, solid growth that has been a hallmark of our company for many years."

Brown added, "In addition to delivering solid operating performance in the second quarter, we are very excited to move forward with the closing of our pending acquisition of Web.com. Our combined company unites two leaders in the web services industry to create a single company with much greater critical mass, web offerings that can meet the do-it-for-me and do-it-yourself needs of all small and medium-sized businesses, a very large customer base and state-of-the-art, patented technology. We believe that SMBs are still in the early stages of adopting state-of-the-art solutions to build and optimize their Internet presence, and our combined organization will be very well-positioned to capitalize on this opportunity."

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2007

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2007 was $17.4 million, an increase of 45% on a year-over-year basis. For the second quarter of 2007, subscription revenue increased 51% to $16.0 million, professional services revenue increased 33% to $668 thousand, and license revenue decreased 23% to $684 thousand, compared to the second quarter of 2006.

For the second quarter of 2007, the company reported net income available to common stockholders, determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), of $551 thousand, compared to $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2006. Fully diluted GAAP earnings per share were $0.03 for the second quarter of 2007, compared to $0.07 per share in the second quarter of 2006. Of note, during the second quarter of 2007, the company recorded an income tax provision of $504 thousand, or $0.03 per fully diluted share, whereas it did not recognize a tax expense in the prior year period.

Non-GAAP Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2007

Website Pros reported non-GAAP net income of $2.4 million for the second quarter of 2007, an increase of 26% as compared to $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2006. Non-GAAP diluted net income per share was $0.12 for the second quarter of 2007, an increase of 20% from $0.10 in the second quarter of 2006.

All per share numbers for non-GAAP net income per share are expressed on a weighted average diluted per share basis. Non-GAAP net income excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization expense related to acquisitions, income tax expense, and includes an estimated cash tax rate to be paid during 2007. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in the press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Other Highlights

   * Total net subscribers at the end of the second quarter were
     approximately 80,700, an increase from approximately 76,700 at the
     end of the first quarter of 2007. Total net subscribers include the
     company's Web services, LEADS.com, RenovationExperts.com,
     1ShoppingCart.com and Submitawebsite offerings.
  
   * Monthly customer turnover was 4.8%, down from 5.3% in the previous
     quarter, based on the subscriber and related churn levels from the
     company's Web services, LEADS.com, RenovationExperts.com,
     1ShoppingCart.com and Submitawebsite offerings.
  
   * Website Pros signed a definitive merger agreement with Web.com, to
     create a comprehensive web services company focused on the SMB market
     with over $121 million annualized revenue run-rate and over 238,000
     paid subscribers. Both figures are based on the most recently published
     financial information, which is as of June 30, 2007 for Website Pros
     and March 31, 2007 for Web.com.
  
  

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Some of the measures in this press release are non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of the SEC Regulation G. Website Pros believes presenting non-GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP net income per share attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP operating margin is useful to investors, because it describes the operating performance of the company and helps investors gauge the company's ability to generate cash flow, excluding some recurring charges that are included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Company management uses these non-GAAP measures as important indicators of the company's past performance and to plan and forecast performance in future periods. The non-GAAP financial information Website Pros presents may not be comparable to similarly-titled financial measures used by other companies, and investors should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or in substitution for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP.
