Small cap Angie’s List Inc (NASDAQ: ANGI) reported Q2 2017 earnings before the market opened with the results missing Wall Street expectations. Angie’s List faces increased competition from competing services such as Porch.com (backed by home improvement retailer Lowe’s Companies), an Amazon offering (called Home Services which creates rankings of recommended contractors and lists prices in major markets nationwide) and an upcoming service from Google. In May, Angie’s List and IAC (NASDAQ: IAC) announced they have entered into a definitive agreement to combine IAC’s HomeAdvisor and Angie’s List into a new publicly-traded company, to be called ANGI Homeservices Inc.
Total revenue was $72.8 million versus $83.1 million in the year-ago quarter driven by declines in service provider and membership revenue. Service provider revenue fell approximately 7% to $62.6 million due in part to lower originations revenue in recent periods. The earnings release also noted: “Further, the challenges we experienced in the prior year in connection with the migration to our new technology platform, which resulted in lower originations and renewals bookings in 2016, continued to have a negative impact on service provider revenue in the second quarter of 2017 given the average duration of our service provider contracts.” Membership revenue was down approximately 35% to $10.2 million due largely to the impact of our removal of the ratings and reviews paywall in June 2016. The net loss was $8.1 million versus net income of $4.7 million. The CEO commented:
