Q4 Revenue was $225 million or flat compared to the fourth quarter of last year. Strong growth in Connectivity and Audience Solutions was offset by revenue declines associated with the second quarter divestiture of Acxiom Impact.

Full Year Revenue was $880 million, up 4% compared to fiscal 2016 driven by growth in Connectivity and Audience Solutions, partially offset by the divestiture of Acxiom Impact.
