- Net loss of $201,998 compared to $193,276 in Q1 2015. Adjusted EBITDA and Net Income were both lower as a result of lower gross margins as well as planned increases in R&D and SG&A expenses to fund growth and higher activity levels; and

Rob Bakshi, President and CEO said, “We are pleased with the continued growth of the business in the first quarter compared to Q1 2015. The first quarter has historically been a weaker quarter due to the buying patterns of our enterprise customers in South Korea however, revenue from all our major customers in Korea was strong compared to the first quarter of 2015. We have now been EBITDA positive for the last eight quarters. We are moving quickly on a number of operational initiatives to grow our business and I look forward to providing updates on these initiatives as they are launched.”
