Not sure why, but okay….

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 02, 2017
(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Autobytel Inc. (Nasdaq:ABTL), a pioneer and leading provider of digital automotive services connecting in-market car buyers with dealers and OEMs, today announced that it plans to change its name to AutoWeb, Inc. effective October 9, 2017.

“When Autobytel was founded in 1995, the era of digital leads and clicks was in its infancy,” said Jeff Coats, president & CEO of Autobytel. “In fact, telephones and newspapers were still the primary source of communication between dealers and consumers. More than 20 years later, in a market dominated by the Internet, we’ve become a leader in the digital automotive landscape. We believe the rebranding and name change to AutoWeb, Inc. better aligns with our operations and corporate strategy, particularly as we look to further expand our Internet leads and clicks businesses.”
