ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mastermind, Inc. (OTC QB: MMND), a leading vertically-integrated digital marketing company that designs, creates and activates marketing initiatives for global brands, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2020, ended December 31, 2019.
Dan Dodson, CEO of Mastermind, commented, “Financial results in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 returned to our historical trends through a combination of startup and ongoing project work from new and existing clients and tight expense management. We have worked through the unexpected customer events of the fourth quarter that negatively impacted our financial results in FY 2019 and remain confident that FY 2020 will be a strong year for the company.”
“In the first quarter, revenue was 12.7% lower than the comparable period of last year, reflecting the allowable recognition of revenue on current client projects. Our current growth initiatives, which generate higher than average gross margins, are gaining traction, including augmented reality marketing, content marketing automation and a digital intelligence and optimization practice. Income from Operations increased 26.2% for the first quarter, driven by a 15.4% reduction in operating expenses and slightly wider gross margins. Revenue in the pipeline at quarter end is higher than at the comparable time last year and supports our confidence in the growth projected for the balance of the fiscal year,” concluded Mr. Dodson.
