Our expanded scale, access to youth audiences, and industry leading, end-to-end platform is resonating with global brands. As a result, we are more excited than ever by the direction we are headed and we expect revenue growth to accelerate significantly in the seasonally strong second half of 2023," concluded Mr. Kenna.
