ProntoForms Reports Q3 2022 Financial Results (US Dollars)

Achieves 12% annual growth in recurring revenue and third quarter growth of 5% over Q2 2022

Kanata, Ontario, CANADA

OTTAWA, Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ProntoForms Corporation (TSXV: PFM), the global leader in enterprise mobile forms, announced today its third quarter (Q3) financial results for the period ended September 30th, 2022. All amounts are in US dollars unless otherwise stated.

"In Q3, our Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) base grew by 4.5% over Q2 2022 as we continue to drive our enterprise expansion strategy. ARR growth in the enterprise segment continues to grow in absolute and proportion of total ARR as enterprise account managers hired last year become increasingly productive. We continue to allocate our resources to adding large enterprise customers as well as expanding their use of our products as they show increasing acceptance of the high ROI that we can drive in their field services activities. We had a top five global oil and gas customer expand by over $200k of ARR during the quarter to optimize production on work sites and meet strict compliance regulations. This quarter we also continued to achieve declining churn overall, led by the enterprise segment where we typically enter longer term contracts and enjoy superior renewal performance," said Alvaro Pombo, Chief Executive Officer.

"We continue to execute on our transformation plan, shifting investments towards enterprise sales while holding overall costs steady. Gross margins remain high, and when combined with the ARR growth, are reducing losses and maintain a good cash position. Field leaders are facing uncertain labor and economic conditions and need to automate faster than ever before. Eighty percent of our customer deployments are achieved in less than eight weeks: delivering reliable workflows, measurable ROI and a great technician experience,” said Alvaro Pombo, Chief Executive Officer.

“Leading enterprises recognize the benefits of mobility solutions for their field teams,” said Chairman Terence Matthews. “The challenge for them is scaling across multiple geographies, languages, use cases, and back-end systems with agility. ProntoForms has the product and team to help organizations successfully transform their global field operations.”
