Josef Mandelbaum, Perion’s CEO commented: “This quarter was a phenomenal quarter for us in every aspect of our business. A year post the acquisition of Smilebox, I am proud to announce that Q3 was a record quarter of profitability for Smilebox and revenues continue to grow at a 30% pace. The acquisition has truly proven out to be a big win for us.”

“In addition,” continued Mandelbaum, “thanks to efforts invested in our back-end systems and analytics, we have succeeded in ramping up our customer acquisition efforts with a very high return on investment which in turn created rapid growth in search generated revenues. Even more encouraging is while we have invested in growing our business, our profits and profit margins have increased dramatically. We intend to build and even further improve on these successes, as we contemplate new acquisition opportunities and plan for even greater growth in 2013.”
