A market industry report citing encouraging growth in mobile advertising spending provides Single Touch Systems, Inc. , with an upbeat perspective on the Company's future outlook into 2014. According to a release, research firm eMarketer forecasted U.S. spending on mobile advertisements to have reached $9.6 billion in 2013, up 120 percent from $4.36 billion in 2012. Additionally a recent Zenith Media report cites that mobile will be the fourth largest advertising category by 2016, surpassing print, outdoor, radio and cinema, leaving it behind only desktop, TV and Internet. Single Touch Systems reported that currently mobile advertising represents approximately 23 percent of digital ad budgets, up from 12 percent last year. EMarketer estimates that overall digital ad spending in the U.S. will grow by nearly 16 percent by the end of 2013, to $42.6 billion . Mobile advertisements will continue to eat up a larger share of the digital ad market until surpassing ad spending on desktop computers in 2017. Commenting on the report, Single Touch's President and CEO said, "It was very encouraging to see validation from such industry findings. Over the past year, the digital marketplace has undergone a major transformative phase with mobile ad spending driving most of the growth. There is measurable evidence that mobile ad growth is clearly trending upwards and we believe we are well positioned to capture a substantial share in the digital ad space. Mobile advertising will be the growth engine to digital advertising in 2014 and beyond, just as digital advertising was and is to traditional advertising which started a decade ago."
