  • Q1 2017 group revenue of USD 5.9 million, down 5.5% year-over-year due to churn
  • EBITDA reflects continued investments in growth

CEO comment

“Cxense’s potential is significant and we will capture it. We have a unique technology addressing a large and growing market and we experience increasing recognition in the marketplace. The churn in the first quarter doesn’t change this. Some churn is legacy contracts, and some is a natural part of the business. The company has been through a major shift. Today we are a software-as-a-service company with an organization focused on data management and personalization. Our expanding sales team will leverage our quality penetration in the media industry when we increase sales and distribution moving forward. We see a record lead pipeline of sales opportunities and I expect that the second quarter 2017 and onwards will demonstrate the strength of Cxense and our software,” said Ståle Bjørnstad, Cxense CEO.
