"We are very pleased with our strong fourth quarter financial performance, exceeding our original forecast as well as our preannouncement in January. These results were driven by a seasonally strong performance in our mobile marketing business and increased demand in our hosted contact center business," stated Jim Milton, president and CEO of SoundBite Communications. "The fourth quarter was also an important and successful quarter by other business measures. SoundBite took a clear leadership position for our industry; championing efforts resulting in a positive declaratory ruling from the FCC for confirmatory opt-out text messages. As a result, our TCPA related class action cases have been dismissed. And based on the improving confidence in our business, we paid a special one-time dividend in December of $0.50 per share."
