“We have been very focused on earnings generation as a key part of our strategic plans,” said Steve Levely, CEO of Ackroo. “At an economic time when cash is more important than ever we feel this is the right strategy short and long term for our business. We made significant HR changes in the business in order to get our revenue per employee back above $230,000 while also settling on long standing consulting agreements that weren’t generating growth for us. We reduced several other operating costs across the business as we migrated clients off of old platforms and by renegotiation of various agreements. We did however make a reinvestment in our staff as we gave all staff on July 1st a raise as we recognize inflation is not only hitting us corporately it is hitting our staff personally. We paid down debt to help improve our balance sheet and to lock in a reduced interest rate and we continued to evolve our AckrooMKTG platform. We accomplished all of this while also maintaining our revenues and delivered a strong 22% of revenue EBITDA for the period. As we head into Q4 we are now cash flow positive again with plenty of great strategic opportunities for growth ahead of us.”
