Digital Turbine Inc. (NASDAQ: APPS) F4Q2016 financials

Digital released preliminary F4Q2016 results that showed revenue in the range of $23 to $23.5 million. Although the revenue range suggests that revenue increased by a factor of 45% over the previous quarter, the management said the performance would have been much better had it not been for delays in Galaxy S7 launch. Unfavorable development with one of the company’s major North American telco accounts also adversely impacted the quarter’s topline.

Digital Turbine Inc. (NASDAQ: APPS) finished the quarter with $11.3 million of cash and equivalents. But the management didn’t say whether the amount was enough to finance operations through F2017.
