Yola going under?

I'd like to squash a rumor that Yola/Synthasite is bankrupt and going under. Please tell me it's not true!
I have been working with Yola for a year now, and have asked 26 students to create their own sites using Yola. I (and all my students) have been very satisfied with everything Yola offers, and I would really like to know if this rumor is true.

Many thanks!

Hi Karen

I can assure you that there is absolutely no truth to this rumor whatsoever! Things are going very well for Yola and we plan to be around for a long time to come.

Would you mind telling us where you heard this? We would certainly like to respond if this rumor is out there to address any unfounded concerns.

I am glad to hear that you have been with us for a long time and that you like our service. Well done for getting 26 students to create websites!

Hi Karen

I would like to add to to Monique's voice. We recently (this year) raised a $20m investment from a listed company, Reinet. I blogged about it here - http://www.vinnylingham.com/synthasit... (we changed the name from SynthaSite to Yola, shortly thereafter).

There is absolutely no truth to this rumour, in fact it is almost the exact opposite. Yola has grown unbelievably this year and we're growing faster than most companies out there right now - and we have the funding to continue our growth for many years.

I have a question bout this.... are you guys still operating under synthasite's name? I recently paid to remove the link from websites and my credit card statement says SYNTHASITE.
