Vonage Taps 3i, Meritech For $40M


Vonage In Print News

February 9, 2004

By Clifford Carlsen

The Internet phone service provider gets money from two late-stage specialists in its third round.

Three months after closing a $35 million second round of venture capital, Internet phone service provider Vonage Holdings Corp. found another $40 million on Feb. 6 from late-stage specialists 3i Group plc and Meritech Capital Partners.

Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron did not disclose a valuation for the new funding, but said the company had sufficient additional interest in the previous round led by New Enterprise Associates that closed in November, to continue negotiations for this new round. He said the deal comes at an increase in valuation, but would not disclose pricing or terms on the new investment.

Vonage retained Josh Tanzer of Los Angeles-based Principia Capital as placement agent on the funding from 3i, of London, and Meritech Capital of Menlo Park, Calif. KMZ Rosenman was the startup's law firm.

Robin Murray, a partner with 3i in its Palo Alto, Calif., office said the firm invested in the deal to take advantage of Vonage's leadership in the Internet phone service sector. "We really liked the IP voice market as a whole, and having made that decision we wanted to find the best company in the space," Murray said. "Vonage has 80% market share, and they are obviously leading in the IP voice category."

3i's investment reflects the London Stock Exchange-listed firm's strategy over the last two years to invest in late-stage companies with little technology or market risk, but that are still shying away from a shaky market for initial public offerings. 3i managing director Sandy Miller, who joined the firm in late 2001, is overseeing the strategy. For years he shepherded technology IPOs as head of investment banking at Montgomery Securities and Thomas Weisel Partners LLC.

Miller, who will join Vonage's board of directors, has concentrated on companies with strong revenue growth, but sometimes with significant capital needs, that will likely be the in first wave to hit the market when the appetite for IPOs returns.

Vonage has raised $103 million since its formation in 2001, and previous investors NEA and senior management participated in the current round. The company will use the money from the new investment for in the United States Canada, the U.K. and Switzerland and to support technology development.

Vonage sells its service directly to consumers and to businesses, offering voice telephone services over Internet connections. Murray said the technology is rapidly becoming mainstream, with customers able to use the service with less than two minutes' installation.

But he said 3i expects greater upside as the technology becomes more widely known. Vonage sells the service for $14.99 for residential customers to $49.99 for small businesses, and includes standard telephone services such as caller ID, call waiting, voicemail, call forwarding and emergency calling service.

Citron said the new investment round will enable the company to accelerate its business plan, and he did not rule out raising additional money in the private markets.
