PHOENIX, May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobivity Holdings Corp. (OTCQB:MFON), maker of the award-winning re•currency platform that increases customer visits and spend in restaurants, retail, and personal care brands today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31st, 2018 (“Q1 2018”).

First Quarter Highlights:

-- Under the new accounting standard, ASC606, new customer wins largely contributed to increasing total revenue to $3.7 million, representing a 75% increase over first quarter 2017 revenue of $2.1 million. -- Total minimum contract values increased to more than $21 million. -- Gross margins climbed to 79% under the new ASC606 accounting standard. -- Deferred revenue increased to $1.6 million as of March 31, 2018, compared to $1.4 million as of March 31, 2017. -- A major Consumer Packaged Goods (“CPG”) brand contributed to a large contract win during the quarter and this growing partnership has begun joint selling Mobivity’s re•currency platform to its more than 700 restaurant brand clients.

Dennis Becker, Mobivity Chairman and CEO, commented, “I’m pleased to report that during the first quarter of this year we drove strong growth in our sales pipeline that is now bearing fruit and accelerating topline revenue performance. Our mission all along has been to empower brick and mortar brands with the ability to leverage data in driving consumer behavior to improve business performance – and the market is starting to take notice like never before. Current events, including Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony to Congress, highlight just how powerful data is in shaping consumer behavior. The fact that the outcome of a presidential election may have been swayed by leveraging consumer data to target information speaks volumes as to the immense power data can have on influencing the behavior of people. High profile events, such as Facebook’s implication in the 2016 presidential election, are creating an awakening to the power of data across all industries and we’re now well positioned to lead in the transformation of brick and mortar commerce to a data driven world.”
