First Quarter 2017 Financial Results:

Revenue for Q1 2017 was $2,113,000, representing an increase of 15% from $1,845,000 in Q1 2016. The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to an increase in SmartSMS revenue.

Operating expenses (excluding goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges) for Q1 2017 were $2,882,000 compared to $2,807,000 in Q1 2016. The increase in operating expenses was due to an increase in engineering, research & development personnel related costs as compared to Q1 2016 to support the Company's growth. Operating loss for the quarter was $(1,326,000) compared to $(1,367,000) in the corresponding period in the prior year. Comprehensive loss for Q1 2017 was $(1,354,000), or $(0.04) per diluted share, compared to $(1,422,000), or $(0.05) per diluted share in Q1 2016.

Non-GAAP Measurements

This press release includes certain financial information which constitutes "non-GAAP financial measures" as defined by the SEC. A full reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to GAAP can be found in the tables of today's press release. Non-GAAP adjusted net income is supplemental to results presented under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP measures are used by management to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of Mobivity's operating performance and liquidity. Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in trending, analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of Mobivity's business. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, other similar measures reported in accordance with GAAP.
