"In a very difficult business environment we have some significant highlights. Revenues from our JupiterimagesUnlimited royalty-free subscription offering grew over 100% for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 compared to the same period in 2007.

We continue to experience significant growth from our Stockxpert.com microstock offering, both with single images and subscriptions," stated Jupitermedia’s Chairman and CEO Alan M. Meckler.

"Our Online Media division continues to be impacted by the economy, which has put pressure on our advertising and job board sales. We have, however, made progress in reducing operating expenses, specifically with our costs of sales and general and administrative expenses.

In addition, we have made additional investments in our Online Media business, with the launch of three new blogs focused on Mobile media and a new event, UGCX, which is focused on user generated content and social networks."
