"We are undergoing a transformation from a third party technology provider to a social video broadcaster, and throughout that transformation have managed to significantly grow revenues, while dramatically reducing our operating costs. "Our primary financial goal remains to achieve profitability. While maintaining close control of our cost base, management will be looking to build on this strong growth momentum throughout the second half of the year. "Significant revenue opportunities will be driven by maintaining competitive advantage in a fast-paced online video industry - combining our data-informed scientific approach to audience management for existing video content, with the remarkable artistic talent we have in our business for new content creation."
