Geoff Cook, CEO of MeetMe, said, “In the second quarter we believe we demonstrated the strength and potential of our mobile business, while at the same time demonstrating stability in our online business. Sequential revenue growth was significant, and we posted an adjusted EBITDA profit.”
Mr. Cook continued, “We are seeing increasing traction with the new mobile advertising products. Since launching additional native mobile ads on iPhone in July, native advertising impressions increased more than fourfold on that platform compared to the week prior to launch. This launch contributed to the 43% increase in overall iPhone advertising revenue during the same period. With the recent launch of these units on Android, we now reach 90% of our mobile audience with our highest-monetizing and best-performing advertising units.”
