They are taking shares from some of the biggest players in the market and have seen explosive growth. As we know, video is a hot market as pre-roll and post-roll ads are not able to be skipped by viewers.
Revenues are growing and the next few quarters should see a nice pop from their new position with the video market. Estimates are for EPS growth over the next few quarters of 40% +/- sequentially (YoY).
