The $377 thousand of cash generated from operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 contributed to an increase in cash of approximately 67% during the quarter ended September 30, 2014. The business growth and discipline that got us here has also delivered two consecutive quarters of positive Adjusted EBITDA, with the quarter ended September 30, 2014 delivering sequential growth in Adjusted EBITDA of 151%.” SNAP’s Chief Operating Officer, Alex Harrington, commented, “Snap also invested significantly in future growth in the most recent quarter. Though the Company expects future gains in AYI subscription revenue, the vision for Snap includes growing from a single application to portfolio of applications. The Company undertook several initiatives to position itself to scale the business across multiple dimensions.” These initiatives included: launching optional premium add-on features to generate transactional revenue and supplement the customer lifetime value derived from subscription revenue; diversifying the Company’s marketing sources to broaden its reach, which increased the percentage of new users acquired through advertisements placed on sources other than Facebook media from 49% in December 2013 to link 68% in September 2014; increasing the prominence of the Company’s native mobile apps to consumers. For example, AYI secured the #1 spot in the U.S. Lifestyle Category in the Apple iTunes App Store in August 2014 and AYI has held the #1 or #2 spot in this category for a majority of days since August 2014; beginning development of a new, mobile-only dating app on iOS that focuses on a younger, complementary audience to AYI; and building internal resources in our product and business intelligence departments, with the intent to support a broader range of applications in the future.
