Why YuMe (YUME) Stock Is Tumbling After Hours

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- YuMe (YUME) stock is tumbling in post-market trading after the digital advertising platform recorded quarterly net losses wider than analysts expected and as management guided for below-consensus revenue in its second quarter.  

After the bell, shares dropped 7.9% to $5.95.

In its first quarter ended March, the company reported a net loss of 16 cents a share, a penny wider than analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expected. However, revenue of $37.29 million was 40.1% higher year over year and exceeded estimates of $35.36 million.

"After building YuMe's finance team and leading the company through its IPO process, the time is right for me to return to my passion and pursue an early-stage growth company opportunity," Laehy said in a statement.
