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.

California dreamin?
VCs Are Still Thinking Big In Silicon Valley, But They're Placing More Bets Outside Information Technology

May 9, 2005

By Robert Weisman

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Silicon Valley venture capitalists were grudgingly coming to terms with a sober new era, devoid of irrational exuberance, when they were jolted by the Google juggernaut.

Only a lucky few venture backers, led by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, reaped giant gains from Google, which raised $1.67 billion in an initial public offering last summer and more than doubled its share price since. But the Google IPO gave a psychological boost to investors in the risky high-tech start-ups that have long defined the Bay Area business scene.

"It reminded us that you have to be visionary, you have to take chances, that dreams do happen," said Kenneth P. Lawler, general partner at Battery Ventures in San Mateo, Calif. ''You don't want to get to be so conservative, so analytical that you can't find a way to take a crazy chance every once in a while on a couple of super smart guys with a wild idea and visions of glory. You just have to go for it."

"What it shows is the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well, and even entrenched companies are vulnerable," said Walter G. Kortschak, managing partner at Summit Partners in Palo Alto. "There's innovation. There's opportunity for improvement in a variety of sectors."

And venture firms in Silicon Valley, the heart of US venture capital investment, have continued to put their money to work in a post-bubble environment that is at once less certain and more competitive, especially in their own neighborhood. Even as venture investing slowed 7.9 percent nationally in the first quarter of 2005, and tumbled 19.2 percent in New England from the same period a year ago, investments from Silicon Valley venture capital firms fell off just 2 percent.

But the investment mix has changed markedly from the boom years of the 1990s, when information technology drove economic expansion and early-stage start-ups were the rage. The start-ups raising money today are not only capitalizing on rapid Internet adoption, like Google, but also using technology for biomedical, environmental, multimedia, and other applications. And more mature later-stage companies are grabbing a larger chunk of the dollars.

Familiar high-tech sectors such as networking, security, enterprise software, and wireless communications are still drawing funds. But so are emerging areas ranging from nanotechnology to clean energy, from open source software to business process outsourcing. And investors are backing traditional businesses, like consumer products and financial services, that use technology for competitive advantage.

"The big megatrend that I've been investing in is really use of the Internet for the basic fabric of our business and personal life," said J. Sanford (Sandy) Miller, a US managing director of 3i Group in Menlo Park, Calif., who backed the Vonage broadband phone service.

 Vonage Not Worried About Cable Co's VoIP Entry

Vonage Holds Its Own Against Cable Companies

May 9, 2005

By Danielle M. George

Washington, D.C. (AHN) - Internet telephone company Vonage Holdings Corp. on Monday said it had reached 650,000 lines without experiencing pressure from cable companies launching their own telephone services.

Vonage raised $200 million in funding last week, bringing the total venture capital raised by Vonage to $408 million.

Vonage is an internet calling service that uses a technology known as voice over Internet protocol, or VOIP, to transmit phone calls over the Internet, which makes calls less expensive than traditional phone services.

Analysts had expected that Vonage's growth rate would fall as cable companies such as Time Warner Inc. and Comcast Corp. launched phone services.

 Vonage Secures Funding To Continue Its Expansion

Vonage Remains VC Darling

May 9, 2005

By Colin C. Haley

VoIP upstart and venture capital darling Vonage will announce an eye-popping $200 million in new financing today in order to fund its continued expansion.

The Edison, N.J., company claims that the round, led by the venture capital arm of Bain Capital, is the largest for a tech company since the Internet industry downturn.

The backing comes less than a year after Vonage banked $105 million, and it brings its total financing to $408 million.

"We're really excited about this round and growing the business," John Rego, Vonage's CFO, told internetnews.com. "It validates our model."

The cash infusion will help the company expand internationally. Vonage is now open in Canada and the United Kingdom and is scouting markets in the Asia-Pacific region.

VoIP Provider Vonage Raises A Further $200 Million

May 9, 2005

By John Walko

LONDON — Voice over IP provider Vonage Holdings has raised a further $200 million in a Series D venture capital financing round led by Bain Capital, doubling the venture capital it has raised since its formation in 2001.

The company says the funds are needed to maintain the phenomenal growth it has achieved in the number of subscribers it has attracted to its service, currently said to be 600,000. Its ambitious target is to sign up 1.2 million subscribers by the end of this year.

Earlier this year, the company rolled out services in the U.K. and Canada, and it says most of the money it has raised will go on international expansion and marketing of its service in North America.

Analysts suggest Vonage is spending about $10 million each month to acquire new customers.

The Series D round of financing comes just nine months after it raised $105 million, much of which is still in the bank. Other existing investors such as 3i Group, New Enterprise Associates, Meritech Capital and Institutional Venture Partners also participated in the latest round.

The size of the additional investment, one of the largest VC fundings so far this year, underscores the investment community's confidence that consumer VoIP services are set to increase dramatically.

 CFO Rego: Vonage Is Not Stunted By Cable VoIP

Vonage In Print News

No Competition

May 9, 2005

By David Cohn and AP

Vonage said it had reached 650,000 lines and had seen no pressure so far from cable companies launching their own telephone services.

Privately held Vonage raised $200 million in funding last week, bringing the total venture capital raised by Vonage to $408 million.

Internet calling services such as Vonage use a technology known as voice over internet protocol, or VOIP, to transmit phone calls in the same way web pages and e-mail are sent over the internet.

Most of Vonage's customers use cable broadband lines, since telephone companies rarely sell high-speed internet access without telephone service. Several analysts had expected that Vonage's growth rate would fall as cable companies such as Time Warner and Comcast launched phone services.

Vonage: No IPO Plans
The VoIP Provider Will Use $200 Million From A Private Security Sale To Support Its Growth

May 9, 2005

By Katie Fehrenbacher

Vonage said Monday it has no plans for a public offering this year following the $200-million private financing round announced last week.

“Raising money in the private market is a lot more efficient use of management time,” CFO John Rego said in an interview. “This is a critical time for the company and we are building an exploding business right now. We need to be focused on that.”

Analysts have speculated for months about a possible IPO this year. But Mr. Rego said “the company doesn’t feel a compelling need to be a public company right now. Like everything else, there are pluses and minuses. We are happy to be doing it this way.”

The fund involving 22 investors was disclosed in an SEC filing last week. It is one of the biggest private financings for a technology company since the bubble burst five years ago and brings Vonage’s total funding to $408 million. The company plans to use the funds to fuel its rapid growth in the nascent VoIP market.

 Vonage Nets $200M In VC Funding

Vonage In Print News

Vonage Nabs $200m VC

May 9, 2005

By Rhonda Ascierto

In the biggest venture capital deal so far this year, Vonage Holdings Corp will raise $200m in equity funding, fuelling speculation over the future of the leading VoIP seller.

Vonage will sell $200m worth of convertible securities to 22 investors, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Ontario, Canada-based Vonage declined comment on the filing.

Vonage investor Sandy Miller, managing director of 3i Technologies LP, said the money is to "fuel growth and defend the company's leading position." Vonage will use its newfound wealth to target SME markets, develop new products and expand in both Europe and Asia, Miller said.
New investor Baird and Co joined existing investors 3i, NEA Enterprise Associates and Meritech Capital Partners in the new funding round.

Miller said the funding was not in response to the increasingly competitive landscape Vonage treks. "We really haven't felt pressure from competitors curtailing our growth in any way," said Miller, who also sits on Vonage's board. His Menlo Park, California-based firm first invested in Vonage in January 2004, when it led Vonage's second VC round.

Vonage Rings Up $200m Investment

May 9, 2005

By Tim Richardson

Vonage - the broadband telephony outfit - is to ramp up its services in the US, Canada and the UK after securing an extra $200m (£106m) in funding to pump into its business.

Bain Capital joined New Enterprise Associates (NEA), 3i, Meritech Capital Partners and Institutional Venture Partners, among others, to raise the cash bringing the total investment into the company to $408m (£217m). As well as helping Vonage to expand its service in existing markets, it will also look to break into new territories. The cash will also be used to fund the development of even whizzier broadband services.

Said Vonage boss Jeffrey Citron: "This latest round of funding will help Vonage further cement its position as the leading broadband telephony provider in North America, with further expansion and penetration into global markets."
