, a California-based online marketing company specializing in small and medium businesses (SMBs), is filing for a $100 million IPO underwritten by JP Morgan and Bank Of America.

The company is reporting $143.3 million in revenue for the first nine months of 2009, a 37.5% increase from 2008. Net income is $2.2 million for the first nine months, versus a loss of $7 million in 2008.
