"The Company delivered another successful growth quarter" said Steve Levely, chief executive officer at Ackroo. "Not only did we continue to grow our revenues and our customer base we expanded the breadth of our offering with product enhancements like mobile, reporting enhancements like bank reconciliation, several program dashboard improvements, additional point of sale integrations, and we released the re-write of our white labelled cardholder portal which will provide more custom options for our merchants and a more scalable way to deploy this aspect of our product. A great quarter for our product team. We also saw great improvement from our channels from a referral perspective with the addition of our 3rd primary referral partner First Data who joined us in June. The result was the highest lead volume we have received in a quarter in company history positioning us well for future quarters. Finally we capped off the quarter with another acquisition in Loyalint/Fidelint as we continue to work at consolidating the sector. This acquisition not only adds customers in the Quebec region in which we have been trying to penetrate for some time, it fills the majority of our current operating losses gap by adding over $15,000 of monthly recurring revenue plus additional one time revenue by way of other additional products and services we provide. An exciting quarter on many fronts and has Ackroo poised for a great close to the year. "
