"Q3'16 marked another record quarter for MediaValet as our sales, marketing and product development teams continued to deliver on our go-to-market strategy," commented David MacLaren, founder & CEO of MediaValet. "Throughout the quarter we deepened our reach into specific geographic markets, we expanded our industry direct campaigns, and we continued to invest in product development, innovation and third party integrations."

"Over the last 4 quarters, since adding sales and marketing and launching our 'best-of-breed' product integration strategy, we've seen an average of 62% growth, quarter-over-quarter, in the net new adds to our annual recurring revenue," added Mr. MacLaren. "Our sales and marketing teams are doing an exceptional job of identifying and closing opportunities, while our product development team is consistently increasing our win rate with each new product innovation and third party integration."

Continued Mr. MacLaren, "We have a tremendous amount of momentum today and it keeps building month-over-month. Before year end we'll launch several new product innovations that we feel will further set us apart from existing DAM systems and bring us closer to the expectations of tomorrow's DAM users."
