Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On January 7, 2011, Market Leader, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Master Services Agreement and a related Statement of Work with Keller Williams Realty, Inc. (“KWRI”) to provide company-wide software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) solutions to the more than 80,000 KWRI professionals and offices (the “Agreement”). The initial term of the Agreement is five years with one year renewal options thereafter. The Agreement provides for minimum payments from KWRI totaling approximately $10 million through the initial term, beginning in April 2011 and paid on a quarterly basis. These new SaaS solutions for KWRI affiliates are expected to begin launching in February 2011. The Company also expects to generate additional revenue from premium SaaS solutions as well as lead generation services that will be made available to KWRI agents, teams and brokers throughout the life of this agreement. The Company expects to deliver the new KWRI SaaS solutions as an upgrade to the solutions that it currently provides to approximately 800 current KWRI customers. The availability of these new solutions could lead to some reduction in revenue from this existing customer group. Overall, the Agreement is expected to begin to contribute significant revenue to the Company’s operating results starting the second half of 2011. The new SaaS solutions will include software licensed from third parties for which the Company expects to incur some incremental costs in the form of licensing fees.

 

Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition

Based on preliminary financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2010, the Company announced that it will achieve low double-digit percentage growth rate over the third quarter revenue level, confirming the previously announced revenue outlook it it provided for the quarter. Revenue growth in the fourth quarter was driven primarily by the incremental revenue from the Company’s newly consolidated subsidiary, as well as organic growth. The Company expects to report complete financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2010 in March 2011.

 

Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

The Company has provided certain disclosure relating to its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2010 in Item 2.02 of this report. Such disclosures are incorporated by reference to this Item 7.01.
