AOL isn’t shy about its success–it headlined its press release about its fourth-quarter finances with the news of its first revenue growth in eight years. AOL’s overall growth was actually driven by 13% growth in its global ad revenues. Search revenues were up 17%. Subscription revenue actually declined 10%, but this is AOL’s “lowest percentage decline in 6 years.” AOL also remarked that its board has authorized the repurchase of “up to $100 Million of Common Stock.”
