Geoff Cook, Chief Executive Officer of MeetMe, stated, “Our record quarterly results reflect continued growth in our mobile user engagement. Our mobile traffic is at an all-time high, with mobile daily active users for the quarter increasing 15% year over year to 1.22 million and mobile monthly active users increasing 32% year over year to 4.84 million. During the quarter, we launched Discuss, our interest-based group conversation platform, which we believe is helping drive increased user engagement. In fact, last week we achieved a new mobile DAU record surpassing 1.37 million daily active users for the first time and reached a new record of 32.2 million chats in a single day.
“We continue to expect our recently announced acquisition of Skout to close in October of this year and for the combination to provide greater scale for monetization and increased profitability for the combined company. We are thrilled to bring two of the largest mobile apps for meeting and chatting with new people into the same portfolio.”
David Clark, Chief Financial Officer of MeetMe, added, “Mobile revenue for the quarter increased 82% year over year and represented 92% of our total revenue, up from 75% in 2015. We believe our increasing mobile revenue was driven by continued strength in the mobile advertising industry, which resulted in higher advertising rates on mobile devices. Much of the increased revenue flowed through to adjusted EBITDA, which increased 109% to $6.0 million for the quarter, resulting in a 37% adjusted EBITDA margin.”
