TORONTO, May 30, 2012 /CNW/ - YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V: YOO, OTC: YOOIF), the industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, today announced its results for the First Quarter ending March 31st 2012. Revenue for the first quarter was $546,822, 98% higher than the revenue for the same period in 2011 and 20% higher than the previous quarter. This quarter over quarter growth is significant as Q1 is an historically slow quarter.
Advertising led the way with Q1 revenues of $148,360, up 51% over ad revenues in the previous quarter. Other significant revenue growth is primarily a result of the greater use of DMDS for music video delivery by the major and independent record labels in the US and Canada. Music video revenues were up 37% quarter over quarter and 283% year over year. Overall, there was strong growth in all divisions and in all territories with U.S. revenues up 280% year over year, Canada growing by 14% plus new revenues for music audio delivery in Australia and New Zealand. The DMDS Awards business continues to grow with revenues up 61% over the same period in 2011.
Total operating expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was 44% lower than the same period in the previous year. EBITDA improved 75% over the same period of 2011.

All divisions are focused on growing profitably and they have each contributed positively, once again, to this quarter's results," said Gary Moss, President and CEO YANGAROO Inc.
