Vonage Gets $200 Million In Equity Financing To Add Customers

May 9, 2005

By Timothy W. Doyle

May 9 (Bloomberg) -- Vonage Holdings Corp., the Internet telephone company with more the 650,000 subscribers, raised $200 million from private-equity firms including Bain Capital LLC to help add more customers.

Bain led the financing with Meritech Capital Partners, 3i Group Plc, New Enterprise Associates and Institutional Venture Partners, Vonage Chief Financial Officer John Rego said.

Vonage, based in Edison, New Jersey, has raised $408 million since its 2001 inception, including $105 million last August.

Closely held Vonage is adding as many as 75,000 customers a month using Voice-over-Internet-Protocol, or VoIP, technology instead local-telephone lines. Vonage offers unlimited calling in the U.S. and Canada for $25 a month.

"We're in an exponential growth mode," Rego said in an interview. "This kind of equity helps fuel that growth."

Vonage, which is planning to sell its product in Asia, will use the funds to pay for advertising as it seeks to reach 1 million subscribers by the end of the year, Rego said. The company has gained about 250,000 new customers this year.

"You're seeing that more and more mainstream consumers are starting to buy this service," Rego said. "These are families trying to save money."

Internet calling will increase to a $776.9 million industry in two years from $34.5 million in 2003, researcher In-Stat/MDR predicts. Home subscribers to Internet telephone service will rise to 27 million by the end of 2009 from 3 million this year,

Framingham, Massachusetts-based researcher IDC predicts.

Market Economics

"What's driving the markets is economics: people are trying to beat the high price of long-distance," said Keith Nissen, an In-Stat senior analyst. "The market is growing significantly even if it's a small percentage of the overall population."

Vonage faces lawsuits from the states of Connecticut and Texas over the company's ability to connect customers to 911 emergency dispatchers. Connecticut contends Vonage doesn't properly disclose to customers that the calls may take longer, and Texas said marketing materials don't make it clear that users need to sign up to make 911 calls route to local dispatchers.

Rego said the company's materials disclose the issues properly. He said Vonage is working with Verizon Communications Inc., the largest U.S. local-phone company, to connect customers in Verizon's 29 states and the District of Columbia to 911 dispatchers who would automatically know a caller's location.

"It's always been our intention to do that," Rego said, adding that local-phone companies control 911 networks. The expense for adding that capability is "marginal," he said.

Internet calling works by transforming conversations into digital information, breaking them down into data packets and sending them over the Internet the way e-mail travels.

Traditional phone service designates a single path for each conversation.

The new round of funding may also put off an initial public offering of Vonage shares.

"There's no discussion of an IPO at this point," Rego said.
