Digital River Announces Globalocity Webinar Series

Global commerce webinars focus on strategies for accelerating e-sales

MINNEAPOLIS — June 11, 2012 — Digital River, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRIV), the revenue growth experts in global cloud commerce, announces its Globalocityâ„¢ Webinar Series. The free monthly series is geared for companies searching for new ways to go direct-to-buyer in order to monetize their products and accelerate sales across multiple channels, devices and geographies.

“With the rapid adoption of new technologies and connected devices, the globalization of cultures and the rising power of the consumer, selling direct has never been more important to a company’s future success,” said Joel Ronning, Digital River’s CEO. “The drive to adopt a direct-to-buyer scenario is forcing companies to rethink traditional business strategies, product development plans and marketing tactics. By attending these webinars, companies will gain valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities that are part of this transition. Our intention is to offer commerce professionals know-how and best practice strategies that will not only help them grow their careers, but also their online businesses.”

The webinar series is an extension of the industry content delivered during the three-day Globalocity commerce conference presented by Digital River in Los Angeles, Calif., in May 2012. Globalocity attracted more than 600 senior commerce professionals from companies of all sizes and industries, including entertainment and games, software, consumer electronics, travel, retail and other online services.

The first two webinars in the Globalocity Webinar Series will take place in June.
