Commenting on the quarter, Steve Swad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rosetta Stone, said, “The stabilization and improvement that we started to see in our US Consumer business in the third quarter continued into the fourth quarter and helped drive record fourth quarter revenues for Rosetta Stone. Our Institutional business also closed out the year on a positive note, while we continue to work on challenges in our Asian consumer business. Encouragingly, sales in our direct-to-consumer channel and in particular, sales via our website, were strong, driven by increased website visits and higher conversion. We had successful email campaigns around the holiday season and focused on promoting our products and services at more attractive price points, which drove significant volume increases in our US consumer business.”
