I'm extremely proud of what we achieved in 2018 having entered the year with a recurring revenue run-rate of approximately $10M USD, and I am even more excited about the prospects for 2019 as we enter the year with $23M USD in recurring annual revenue with the opportunity to improve VIQ's growth profile and operating margins through a combination of sales growth, expense efficiencies, expanded customer service, cross-selling opportunities, accelerated technology sales and additional strategic acquisitions."
