The Company launched Perk.TV based on market trends indicating advertisers' allocation of budget continues to be strong in a mobile web and browser environment and consumer media consumption also remaining strong on those platforms. Perk.TV provides users with yet another vehicle for which they earn Perk Points, and complements Perk's other quality applications as well as Perk's Appsaholic Rewards Platform for third party vendors.

Ted Hastings, Chief Executive Officer of Perk, stated: "While typically our members have earned Perk Points through our wide selection of mobile applications, we realize there is a significant percentage of consumer attention and advertising dollars still being spent on traditional websites accessible by desktop and mobile users. This allows our Company to further differentiate its revenue stream by entering new partnerships with advertisers that generally focus on reaching consumers through website advertising. Perk.TV is off to a great start and we believe this success will continue as we grow our user base and expand our advertising network."
