Shares of micro-cap Wi-Fi software provider iPass (IPAS) have surged over 60% since the start of the year. The company's CEO Gary Griffiths said the growing trend toward 'Wi-Fi first' could carry the industry, and the stock, even higher. 'We have drastically expanded our network, we have 60 million hotspots today versus 20 million a year ago so we have really been pouring the heat on the network,' said Griffiths. Last week iPass, which has traded publicly since 2003, reported a second quarter net loss of $1.4 million and adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.3 million, or less than half a cent a share. Revenue in the quarter increased to $16.5 million, beating its prior year top line by nearly $1 million and topping its first quarter 2016 sales by almost $2 million. The company has not had a revenue growth year since 2007, according to Griffiths, who joined iPass over a year ago to turn the company around.
