In parallel, and in conjunction with the fact that revenues from Google are no longer material to Perion, the Company decided to exercise its right to opt-out of its ClientConnect agreement with Google as of August 31, 2014. The Company continues to work with Google through its original Perion agreement which expires in June 2015.
In addition to Bing and Google, the Company also has search distribution partnerships with Ask.com and Yahoo.
