NEW YORK, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Snap Interactive, Inc. ("SNAP" or the "Company") (STVI), a leading online dating site developer and owner of AYI.com, today announced May subscriber information.
* Active subscriber count increased approximately 24% YTD through May 31, 2014 from approximately 77,700 as of December 31, 2013 to approximately 96,000 as of May 31, 2014;

SNAP's Chief Executive Officer, Clifford Lerner, commented, "We are excited to report our sixth consecutive month of subscriber growth, with an increase in our active subscriber base of 24% during the first five months of 2014. We have achieved this growth in subscribers despite reducing our monthly advertising and marketing expenses by over 25% since January 2014. Our marketing efficiency continues to be enhanced by constant experimentation and optimization driving user engagement and conversion to subscriptions."
SNAP's Chief Operating Officer, Alex Harrington, added, "SNAP's active subscriber count is an important operating metric, since revenues from multi-month subscriptions are recognized over several months, and subscribers are eligible to automatically renew their subscriptions. We expect to see the impact of this growth in upcoming months as subscription revenue from these new subscribers is recognized. We are excited to get our story to investors reflecting the strong fundamentals of the business, and have recently published an investor deck to our website at http://www.snap-interactive.com/investor-relations/investor-presentations/."
