"Our first quarter 2012 results show continued growth in customers, subscribers and revenues. In our 2012 first quarter, we made significant strides in reducing our cost structure by transitioning from our legacy 4.8 services and infrastructure. While this caused some small turbulence in our subscriber growth, we were able to achieve significant savings in cost of sales and research and development and provide long term value for scaling our offering in a cost effective manner. We also recently modified our sales process to increasingly funnel customer activity through our web portal providing better access to customer information and we introduced product improvements such as standardized data destinations and dispatch functionality intended to improve and simplify ProntoForms and shorten the sales cycle," said Alvaro Pombo, Chief Executive Officer, TrueContext. Mr. Pombo added: "We continue to focus on maximizing subscriber growth primarily through our mobile operator channel partners. We have witnessed solid traction in the US and we recently announced a resell arrangement with Rogers Communications in Canada. In addition, we have made significant progress in other geographies and intend to continue building a diversified base of subscribers. In the last two quarters we have also secured co-marketing partnerships with the global top four mobile device brands, which help expand awareness and representation of our products through the mobile operator channel."Option GrantOptions to purchase up to 1,410,000 common shares of the Company were approved for grant by the Board of Directors, including 1,200,000 to certain directors and officers.
