numbers in parenthesis look to be US in millions but you can verify
MMR are $600K. Oddly that is the same as Verb's total digital revenue of approx. $1.8 million
Interim Report January – March 2021
Revenue grew 550% comparing Q1 to Q1 of last year. Do the math and you can see how little revenue actually was last year so not so hard to grow 550%
"We consider 2020 to be “year zero” for Bambuser. Our focus was to ensure product market fit and acquire a solid customer base. Now, we are in “year
What? I thought the 'experts' on shutter island indicated tech company can't do that and receive a high valuation
"Our focus is increasing our ability to scale and
generate revenue. To that end, we placed an internal
emphasis on expanding our product offering and
strengthening our position as a SaaS company. As a
result, our business has never looked healthier – from
both an MRR and customer point of view. "
Hmmm, sounds familiar
"From a customer acquisition perspective, Q1 continued to bring incredible interest from organizations all
over the world, and we have entered agreements with
some of the world’s most renowned brands. For many

have onboard is quite impressive. And we continue to
onboard new customers on a daily basis"

In Q1, Bambuser broadcasted more than 2800 Live
Video Shopping One-to-Many events.
continued to drive performance metrics exceeding
industry benchmarks. Averages across key metrics
Interactivity: 26 percent of the viewers interact via
likes or chatting during the live shows. If adding
clicking on products as part of the metric, the rate
reaches nearly 47 percent.
Viewing time: 13 minutes and 47 seconds
Add to cart click rate: 14 percent
Chat Ratio: 23 percent

I think Verb will blow the doors off off the 2800 number. Maybe they already have.
"News revenues represent 2% of the revenue mix in
Q1 2021. These revenues represented the majority of
the revenue mix during 2019."
Ain't that a kicker. They also understand the power of the pivoted (and talent).
