Toronto, April 19, 2016 – Route1 Inc. (TSXV: ROI) (the Company or Route1), a leading provider of secure access technologies for the mobile workspace to protect businesses and government agencies, today provided an update on market drivers, its operations and business development activity.
MobiKEY Paid, Active Subscribers
As at March 31, 2016, Route1 had 16,490 paying, active subscribers.
Revenue from services includes MobiKEY application software, as well as the DEFIMNET platform and other appliance licensing or yearly maintenance. The net increase in MobiKEY application software users primarily came from agencies and components within the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Navy, and the U.S. Department of the Interior.
For the above noted 16,490 MobiKEY subscribers, Route1’s average revenue per subscriber will increase in Q2 2016 to CAD $375 or better as a result of the improved exchange rate Route1 has realized since renewing certain U.S. government accounts in March and April 2016.
“I continue to be pleased with the number and quality of business development opportunities we are involved in. We have seen a number of quality sales opportunities advance in Q1, and we expect to see increased growth from current and new accounts within the U.S. government over the next few months,” said Brian Brunetti, President, Route1 Inc. “Our current and potential government customers continue to be operationally focused on Cybersecurity Sprints, as mandated by the Obama Administration. These so-called sprints involve scanning, patching and hardening deployed systems within very short turnaround times, typically within 30 days. These sprints and other cybersecurity initiatives within the U.S. government create substantial opportunities for MobiKEY deployment as departments and agencies look to improve their security best practices.”
