Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Results Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 totaled $5.2 million compared to $5.0 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The increase was primarily due to higher service revenue.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2016 totaled $9.0 million compared to $8.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily due to higher investments in sales, marketing and engineering as the company continues to address important opportunities in market development and delivery for Digimarc Discover and Digimarc Barcode.

Operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2016 totaled $5.9 million compared to an operating loss of $5.3 million in the same quarter a year ago. The higher operating loss was primarily due to higher operating expenses.
