Here is what Old West Investment Management has to say about Zedge, Inc. in their Q4 2020 investor letter:

"Another top performer for us last year was Zedge (ZDGE), a company that operates worldwide as a content distribution platform. Old West partner Joe Boskovich Jr. has closely followed the career of serial entrepreneur Howard Jonas, and ZDGE is just one of Howard’s many holdings. We first invested in ZDGE at $3 per share, watched it fall as low as $0.66, and our patience was rewarded as the stock finished the year at $6."
