Lenco reported revenues of $4.2 million, an increase of 51% from the third quarter of 2011.  

"We remain focused on completing the integration of iLoop Mobile and on implementing our global business strategy to provide a broad set of mobile solutions to large multinational entities.  Our third quarter results reflect those efforts," said Mathew Harris, CEO of Lenco.  "We see broad acceptance of our rich media MMS messaging solutions for both marketing and business process initiatives.  Those solutions have become key competitive differentiators for us and we expect that to continue to be important across our target markets," continued Harris.

  • Gross profit increased 37% year-over-year to $2.4 million.
