After receiving a court reprieve from the Microsoft a while ago, and reporting a sharp increase in direct marketing sales in the first quarter of 2006, OptIn announced today that a judge has now officially brought them out of bankruptcy.
“We have made changes to our organization which allows us to operate much more efficiently… We’ve modified the way we do business that not only continues to comply with regulations, but far surpasses industry-wide best practices. All of these essential changes along with the support of our advertisers and affiliates have helped us achieve the record breaking sales and profits that we have been experiencing for the past twelve months,” added Richter.
