Adya Announces 2016 Annual Results

TORONTO--()--Adya Inc. (“Adya” or the “Company”), (TSX-V: ADYA) today announced its financial performance for the year ended December 31, 2016.

Revenue for 2016 was down approximately 17% to $14,808,073 compared to revenue of $17,885,503 in fiscal 2015. This decline was contributed by a disruption in a service agreement in 2015 with a wireless service provider for roaming services along with forecasted market trend declines of traditional long distance services. Positively, the Company saw growth in other markets, namely the Business Services segment, which helped offset some of the declines seen in the traditional services.

“As we have seen our traditional long distance services decline in line with market trends,” explained Rajiv Jagota, President and CEO of Adya, “I look forward to the opportunities of organic growth by introducing new and innovative products and services. We are also continuing to pursue acquisition opportunities to help offset our declines and diversify of product and services offerings.”
