“We continue to see significant year-on-year growth in all lines of business, as we progress towards our goal of profitability in 2016,” said Gary Moss, President and CEO of YANGAROO. “We have signed 82 new advertising clients so far this year, meeting our goal of 80 – 100 for the current fiscal period. We are also currently testing and onboarding significant new potential clients and brands, each of which could result in material incremental revenue in 2016. In addition, we will close the current year with over 70 active proposals out to prospective new advertising clients. Our fixed costs remain largely unchanged quarter to quarter and we do not expect significant increases in 2016.”
