Some of the financial highlights included a revenue of $592,302 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 more than doubled the $283,202 reported for the comparative period, the gross margin remained strong at 86% due to high margin software revenue and compared to 88% in the comparative period, as well as subsequent to the quarter, collection of a large account receivable and completion of the $9.2 million bought deal financing in April 2019 increased cash to approximately $12.7 million.

"We believe that OneSoft's "first mover" advantage in having developed and commercialized the first O&G pipeline integrity management solutions based on cloud computing, machine learning and data science is highly beneficial. Management will now accelerate the development of additional new technology and solutions that are accretive to CIM and will appeal to CIM clients and prospective customers. We believe our strategy to accelerate technology advancement, now feasible because of the capital raise completed in April 2019, will ultimately contribute to increased value for shareholders," according the companies release.

The increase in gross profit and gross margin was primarily due to the increase in revenues previously described.
AudioEye Executive Chairman, Carr Bettis said, "The first quarter was a strong start to the year that has us in good position to continue ramping our growth efforts throughout the balance of 2019. Total revenues increased 73% to a record $1.99 million, which marks the thirteenth consecutive quarter that we've achieved record topline results. Looking ahead, we're seeing even greater signs of growth and expansion. The past two months, April and March, have been the best months in the history of our company in terms of cash contract bookings. Thanks to our enhanced public relations and marketing efforts, we've been able to increase our pipeline substantially and will look to continue to accelerate this program going forward. We are continuing to strategically funnel financial resources and add key personnel into areas that will allow us to build on our market leading position and further establish AudioEye as the de-facto leader in digital."
Increased revenue and continued growth supports the idea that this is a still a segment to watch in the tech sector as demand continues to reduce operational costs and proliferate profits through efficient management of assets.
