Monotype Sales Up 7%, Announces Partnership With Google

Font technology specialist Monotype Image Holdings (NASDAQ: TYPE  ) surged ahead in revenue this quarter. The company brought in $40.5 million in Q3, up 6.5% compared to $37.9 million in Q3 2012.  The revenue boost was helped by a 20% gain in sales in its creative professional market, which markets, in CEO Douglas Shaw's words, "type-centric solutions that ensure brand integrity and creative expression."

While Monotype's revenue grew this quarter, its operating and net incomes declined. Income from operations dropped 6.1% from Q3 2012, to $11.7 million, and net income fell 11.5%, to $7 million.

Margins may be smaller, but Monotype's cash has increased significantly since this time last year. On its balance sheet, the company currently has $64.3 million to its name, compared to $39.3 million in Q3 2012.

Shaw is confident in Monotype's long-term growth potential. He said, it "has been reaffirmed with the announcement of a share repurchase program, which demonstrates our ongoing commitment to deliver value to shareholders." Monotype also has a new partnership with Google that will provide a version of Monotype's Typecase application on Google Fonts.
