“During the quarter, we continued to invest in the development of our lead product – eValue – and in the build-out of a sales & marketing team. Our pipeline has never been stronger with respect to companies considering the use of eValue Analytics and other Engagement Labs’ solutions and services. We expect Q3 and Q4 to show meaningful quarter over quarter growth as we convert many of our current prospects into SaaS clients,” said Bryan Segal, CEO at Engagement Labs.
“In addition, having closed on July 24, 2015 the acquisition of New Jersey and London, UK-based Keller Fay Group, we are now head-down working through integration plans. We are very excited about the creation of our proprietary ‘Total Social Score’ which will be anchored by eValue and Keller Fay Group’s proprietary research and analytics which focus on the measurement of earned social media and offline Brand conversations. We believe that this combination of research, data and analytics producing a ‘Total Social Media Score’ will be considered highly unique by the market place and deliver a strong value-proposition to companies world-wide,” Segal continued.
“Also of note is a recent mandate signed in late July for the procurement by Engagement Labs of a ‘Social Media Dashboard’ that will incorporate eValue and other third party social media data and analytics sources for use by a Major Global Retailer. While we are pleased that the first year revenue associated with this mandate is $372,000, what is more significant is having won the confidence of this global Brand and being selected as the vendor of this new approach to assimilating, interpreting and generating action-oriented insights from multiple sources of social media metrics,” noted Segal.
 The Adjusted EBIDTA definition of the Company includes severance payments of $182,441.
