“As we look back on 2013, we are pleased with our achievements, which included record revenue as well as significant new contracts that are expected to generate long-term recurring revenue in both our wholesale and retail businesses,” said David Hagan, Chief Executive Officer of Boingo Wireless. “Sizeable opportunities in key growth sectors required us to invest more heavily up front this year, which affected our profitability. That said, those investments are already starting to pay off in our advertising business with revenue nearly doubling year over year, while the aggressive ramping of investments in the military network rollouts isn’t expected to contribute in a meaningful way until the second half of this year.”
