Jack Abuhoff, Chairman and Chief executive officer, said, “First quarter revenue - while in line with the mid-point of our guidance - declined by $0.7 million from the fourth quarter. This resulted in an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $160,000 due to high operating leverage. Revenue in our Digital Data Solutions (DDS) segment was $11.4 million compared to $11.7 million in the fourth quarter, as volumes from new customer engagements were not sufficient to offset the lower volumes from several existing customer engagements. In our Innodata Advanced Data Solutions (IADS) segment, a combination of seasonality and the expiration of a contract in the Synodex business translated into lower segmental revenue of $1.0 million compared to $1.25 million in the fourth quarter.
