PHOENIX, May 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QuoteMedia, Inc. (OTCQB:QMCI), a leading provider of market data, financial web content solutions and cloud-based applications, announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2016. These results reflect first quarter revenue of $2,168,866, down from $2,188,317 in the comparative period in 2015, a decrease of $19,451 (1%).
“As we mentioned when reporting our year end results a few weeks ago, the devaluation of the Canadian dollar compared to the US dollar tends to distort our performance because a large portion of our revenue is received in Canadian Dollars and then translated into U.S. dollars for reporting purposes,” says CEO Keith Guelpa. “If the average exchange rate had remained the same as the comparative quarter in 2015, our revenues would have actually shown an increase of approximately 2%.
We are excited at the opportunities we are facing with the launch of new products and partnerships, and we are moving forward with several large deployments. Our first quarter revenue increased approximately 3% quarter over quarter (compared to Q4 2015), and we remain on track to achieve positive year over year revenue growth.”
