"2017 continues to deliver strong quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year revenue growth," commented David MacLaren, founder and CEO of MediaValet. "To date, our growth has been fueled by rapid feature development, strategic integrations and highly targeted marketing campaigns. These initiatives continue to expand our market share, grow our average deal size and increase our gross margin. On the horizon, as our new channel partners begin to ramp up, we see our channel program starting to contribute meaningfully to our growth trajectory."

"With our operating teams fully staffed, and both ARR and topline Revenue expected to continue growing quarter-over-quarter, we're confident EBITDA losses and cash requirements will continue to lessen each quarter going forward," added Mr. MacLaren. "Thanks to the continued suggestions, ideas and feedback from our diverse list of customers, and the truly amazing ability of our R&D team, this positive trend in our top and bottom line will be supported by an innovative and robust product roadmap full of exciting new technology, feature enhancements and add-on products."

Continued Mr. MacLaren, "Given our accomplishments to date, we plan to maintain our current operating budget and to continue delivering topline growth through strategic marketing initiatives, innovative product development, and targeted geographic and industry expansion. We believe this will enable us to acheive cash positive operations in 2018."
