“Second quarter results reflected the beginnings of our efforts to improve profitability by better balancing the need to generate positive margins on the bottom line with investments to drive growth,” said Steve Swad, Rosetta Stone’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Swad added, “We undertook a number of actions during the quarter that focused on resetting our cost structure to enable us to pursue profitable growth. Some of these actions included reducing and better managing our media spending, continuing to optimize our distribution channels, streamlining our European operations and carrying out a modest headcount reduction, primarily in the U.S. The end result was positive Adjusted EBITDA of $1.1 million, a $2.4 million improvement compared to last year’s second quarter result of negative $1.3 million.”
