Amounts in this press release have been rounded. All percentages have been calculated using unrounded amounts.

Jack Abuhoff, CEO, said, "Our revenues increased 5% this quarter both year-over-year and sequentially as we continue to execute our strategy. Based on trends across all lines of our business and market opportunities, and to position us for 20% growth in coming years, we plan to increase our sales staff through 2021 from 15 this year (on average) to 58 and to ramp up marketing to support this augmented sales staff. As a result of operating leverage in the business, we would anticipate cashflow growth to outpace revenue growth and cover increased investment.

The company launched its AI data preparation business late last year. According to industry analysts, demand for the high-quality annotated text, image, video and audio data required to train sophisticated AI is expected to increase dramatically over the next several years.

"We're finding that our 25 years' experience creating near-perfect data for leading information companies is the ideal springboard for penetrating this quality-driven market as we dislodge incumbents whose DNA is in language translation or crowd-sourcing," Abuhoff added.

Highlights in the quarter included:

  • Increased our year-to-date AI services new customer count to 18;
  • Increased the scope of engagement with one of the world's largest social media companies to now include AI data preparation work in seven languages across six major use cases including search classification, sentiment analysis, and fake news identification; and
  • On track with previously announced cost savings initiatives.
