TUCSON, Ariz., Feb. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AudioEye, Inc. (OTCQB: AEYE) ("AudioEye" or the "Company") today announced its 2017 financial targets. The Company anticipates cash contract bookings of $4.0 to $6.0 million for 2017, compared to $1.9 million in 2016. In support of this goal, the Company reported its prospective new business pipeline is now in excess of $5.4 million, compared to approximately $1.5 million at the same time in 2016. AudioEye recently hired additional sales staff to address increased demand in key regional and end-user markets.
"We are off to a strong start in 2017 as momentum continues to ramp for our Digital Accessibility Platform and Ally Managed Service solutions," said Dr. Carr Bettis, Executive Chairman of AudioEye. "We aim to more than double annual bookings over 2016, while prudently managing operating costs."
Todd Bankofier, CEO of AudioEye, stated: "More organizations than ever are addressing the need for digital accessibility, whether driven by compliance or commercial interests. Our decision to focus on six high-value end markets in 2016 was validated by an increasing number of high-profile reference accounts. Momentum for our solutions also continues to accelerate, as exemplified by our recent Seattle Public Schools contract and the addition of more than 60 local and community banking customers late last year. As such, we expect to further expand our client lists in human resources, government, education, financial services, e-commerce and healthcare throughout 2017."
