- "We are pleased to report continued progress in our mobile and web payments business unit," said Hamed Shahbazi, Chairman and CEO of TIO Networks. "We are also particularly excited about our recently announced billing relationship with AIO Wireless. Over time, we believe this billing partner could have a very substantial impact on revenue growth and gross margin. We are also pleased to report record low customer concentration with our largest bill payment partner who now as of the date of this release represents approximately a third of our total margin. Outside of our largest bill payment partner, we experienced double-digit revenue growth on a year over year basis. We are particularly encouraged by the results we've seen with our Wallet programs as our numbers are growing and demonstrating increased traction with our customer stakeholder groups."
A conference call to discuss the results will be held on Wednesday June 26, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. EST. To participate please dial, (416) 644-3426 in Toronto or Toll free, 1-800-731-5319 and request the TIO Networks Conference.
