GoDaddy CEO Talks Earnings on CNBC

GoDaddy reported its quarterly earnings yesterday, and GDDY stock is currently trading up a little over 2% at $27.32/share (at the time of publication). GoDaddy stock debuted on the New York Stock Exchange on April 15, 2015, and the stock is currently up from its opening $26.15/share trade.

GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving made an appearance on CNBC this morning to discuss several things related to GoDaddy’s business. Some of the topics that were broached were the quarterly earnings, the company ending its NASCAR car sponsorship, customer growth, and the Chinese market.

The video of Blake’s interview is embedded below. I think appearances like this continue to benefit the domain industry since GoDaddy is such a big name in the business.

  1. You are right Elliot. Such an appearance is a plus for the domain name industry and you can’t take it away from GoDaddy as an authority in the industry.

  2. Their buying the Marchex portfolio for $28 Million….which Marchex paid $164 Million back in 2005….

    That shows the reality of the industry’s valuation.

    Rose colored glasses only work for so long

  3. This headline is a bit misleading, there are not many earnings to talk about over at Godaddy over the last 6 years 🙂
