The higher numbers were primarily due to acquisitions, combined with growth in international markets and non-recurring revenues related to installation and equipment sales.

The company also received a boost from the exchange rate between the Canadian and U.S. dollars.

"We completed our first fiscal year as a public company with several accomplishments to report," said Eric Boyko, Stingray's CEO and co-founder.

"As planned, we have been active on the acquisition front with four acquisitions representing investments of $33.1-million, including contingent considerations.

"We enter the new fiscal year with great confidence considering . . . (our) well-diversified business, our scale, a solid balance sheet and many opportunities to grow through acquisitions and organically."
