Management Discussion
  • Lead generation.  Lead generation revenues decreased $4.3 million, or 23%, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020 primarily a result of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on vehicle sales despite forecasted improvement for the full year of 2021. We also reduced our overall Lead generation efforts starting in second quarter of 2020 and continuing into 2021 to better align our volumes with industry demand and consumer intent to purchase a vehicle.
  • Digital Advertising. Digital advertising revenues decreased $2.3 million, or 39%, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020, as a result of a decrease in click revenue associated with decreased click volume. The decrease in click volume is attributed to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and our internal decision to reduce overall click generation efforts to better align with industry demand. 
  • Cost of Revenues.  Cost of revenues consists of purchase request and traffic acquisition costs and other cost of revenues. Purchase request and traffic acquisition costs consist of payments made to our third-party purchase request providers, including internet portals and online automotive information providers. Other cost of revenues consists of SEM and fees paid to third parties for data and content, including search engine optimization activity, included on our websites; connectivity costs; development costs related to our websites; technology license fees; server equipment depreciation; and technology amortization directly related to our Websites. Cost of revenues decreased $7.0 million, or 37%, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020 primarily due to decreased SEM, purchase request and traffic acquisition costs.
