Last week we saw a number of companies in the media and Web 2.0 sector reporting earnings, but none was more surprising than Cyberplex. This company, operating in the ad network space, continued to surprise investors both on the earnings front and capital market activity. In posting approximately 300% growth in revenues Y/Y (see figure below), the company has demonstrated the merit of its business model and has returned to the equity markets for C$15 million to fuel the next phase of its growth.
