What did the CEO say?
Tinybeans CEO, Mr Eddie Geller, commented on the positive result. He said:
I’m pleased to report another quarter of strong growth despite COVID disruptions to our operations and to our brand partners…
Historically, Q1 is seasonally a slower quarter in the U.S. advertising market, however, a 15% revenue growth in USD terms during difficult economic times is very promising…
We have plans to significantly grow this offering as more and more content gets integrated across the app. E-commerce is a complementary addition to the platform and a total addressable market in the baby/kids category in the U.S. of over 1 trillion dollars.
Tinybeans said it continues to perform well with the COVID-19 backdrop and is focused on executing its growth strategies.
New partnership agreements are being worked on and are expected to be released to the market in due course.
The company is anticipating exponential user growth to begin in FY22, with revenues from its consumer segment to eclipse adverting by FY23. This is due to its ever-growing sales team pushing subscription and e-commerce products and services.
