Revenue was increased over the same periods of the prior year as the Company pushed into new markets including rental car agencies and asset recovery with continued demand within current channels. Adjusted EBITDA increased largely on the increased gross margin while keeping expenses almost flat. Overall net loss improved slightly as the increased gross margin was mostly absorbed by the increased R&D spending to drive development of the new units.
