Former N.C. company Motricity announced Monday that it achieved more than $100 million in revenue in 2008 along with reaching other company benchmarks.

“Motricity in 2008 focused inward on our core business of powering the mobile lifestyle and exceeding the expectations of our customers, the largest mobile operators and content providers,” said Ryan Wuerch, chairman and chief executive officer of Motricity. “Motricity’s strong value proposition, experience and dedication to delivering value to our world-class customers have enabled us to meet and exceed our 2008 financial and operational goals. The momentum we have built up has positioned Motricity for continued exceptional growth in 2009.”

Motricity eliminated 250 jobs in March 2008, most of which were among its 350 Durham employees. The moves were part of a consolidation of two companies: Motricity and the mobile information business unit of InfoSpace, which Motricity acquired for $135 million last year. The InfoSpace group is based in Bellevue.

According to comScore, Motricity’s mCore Platform reached 74 percent of all mobile subscribers that browsed any news or information on their mobile phones. This significant milestone represents the breadth and depth of Motricity’s offerings in the marketplace, the company said.

In 2008, Motricity said, it made significant technology investments in its platform for mobile data, applications and services, the mCore Platform, to capitalize on the rapid growth of mobile data services globally.

This investment has enabled Motricity to attract numerous new customers and expand relationships with existing customers such as AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Alltel, TracFone Wireless, PlayPhone, CNN, FOX News, A&E and Condé Nast, the company reported.
