IRVINE, Calif. — Digital automotive services provider Autobytel Inc. last week completed the sale of its specialty finance leads product to Internet Brands Inc.
In 2015, Autobytel's specialty leads product generated $6.5 million in revenue with $0.5 million of contribution to operating income. For 2016, those numbers are expected to come in at $6.4 million and $0.5 million, respectively.
