Financial Highlights:

Record 2014 Revenue:

The Company reported revenue of $11.8 million, reflecting a year over year increase of approximately 22% from $9.6 million in 2013. The increase in revenue was primarily due to an increase in the number of professional service projects and digital technology related contracts the Company secured and delivered with current customers, as well as with newly added customers. The Company continues to expand its services offerings, as well as its sales and marketing efforts, in order to obtain new business.

Increased 2014 Gross Margin:

Gross margin increased to 37% versus 32% in 2013, due primarily to a shift in product mix to professional services and project-based work in digital markets that realize higher gross margins, versus staffing solutions and services in other markets.

Record 2014 Net Income:

Net income for the year increased approximately $1.3 million to approximately $471,000 after one time charges associated to the Company's efforts to be a publically traded company listed on NASDAQ. This increase was attributable to sales growth and increased margin, predominately within the Company's Content Management Systems ("CMS") services segment, part of the Company's digital solutions offerings.

Management Comments and Outlook:

Tejune Kang, Chairman and CEO commented, "This is the first annual report of 6D Global's financial results since our common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Stock Market in December 2014. We are pleased with our performance in 2014 as we expanded our offerings into new markets and pursued new strategic business partnerships. I believe 6D Global is in a strong position to significantly expand our customer base by leveraging our track record of successful engagements to acquire new customers and win repeat projects. We also intend to expand our offerings through further acquisitions, with new digital services and software products. During the first quarter of 2015, we completed two strategic digital business acquisitions, Storycode and SwellPath LLC., both of which are highly synergistic to the Company's current business model and will be immediately accretive to our revenue and earnings for 2015 and beyond. We anticipate continued growth in our business and delivering value for our shareholders."
