CUPERTINO, Calif., Feb. 22, 2023 /CNW/ - (TSXV: BWLK) (OTCQB: BWLKF) – Boardwalktech Software Corp. ("Boardwalktech" or the "Company"), a leading digital ledger platform and enterprise software solutions company, is pleased to report its financial results for the three-month period ended December 31, 2022.  All figures are reported in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise indicated. Boardwalktech's financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").

Financial Highlights:
  • Revenue for Q3-FY23 was $1.8 million, a 74% increase from $1.06 million in Q3-FY22, and a 24% sequential increase from $1.48 million in Q2-FY23. Revenue from recurring SaaS licenses in Q3-FY23 increased 129% year-over-year from higher incremental licenses executed with both new and existing customers.
  • Annual recurring revenue ("ARR"), at December 31, 2022 was $5.8 million, a 90% year-over-year increase versus ARR of $3.0 million at December 31, 2021. ARR is a non-IFRS measure, and the Company defines ARR as the annualized recurring revenue expected based on quarterly license subscriptions and recurring services.
  • Since the Company implemented its SaaS business model in 2018, total revenue from new contracts signed since 2018 comprised 87% of total revenue in Q3-FY23, compared to 74% in the prior year, expanding at an 42% compound annual growth rate ("CAGR") the last three years – 55% CAGR on recurring license revenue.
  • Gross margin for Q3-FY23 was 91.5%, a 4.7%-point increase from the previous year's level of 86.8%, and a 1.2% point increase from Q2-FY23 gross margin of 90.3%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for Q3-F23 was a loss of $(0.24) million, a 52% improvement from the $(0.50) million loss in Q3-FY22, and 64% sequential improvement from the $(0.68) million loss in Q2-FY23. This is the best EBITDA level since the Company went public, as it progresses towards and through breakeven profitability.
  • Non-IFRS loss for Q3-FY23 (as defined in the Non-IFRS Financial Measures section) was a loss of $(0.25) million, or $(0.01) per basic and diluted share, a 51% improvement versus a $(0.52) million non-IFRS loss in Q3-FY22, or $(0.01) per basic and diluted share, and a 64% improvement versus $(0.70) million non-IFRS loss in Q2-FY23, or $(0.02) per basic and diluted share; as revenue growth outpaced selective opex spending.
  • Net loss for Q3-FY23 was $(0.65) million, or a loss of $(0.01) per basic and diluted share, a 40% improvement versus the $(1.08) million loss in Q3-FY22, or $(0.03) per basic and diluted share, and a $(1.22) million loss in Q2-FY23, or $(0.03) per basic and diluted share, a 47% sequential improvement.
Outlook Update
  • The Company is tracking at the mid to high end of its previously announced revenue guidance of $6.5 million to $7.0 million for FY 2023.
  • The Company still projects it has sufficient funds and current receivables that it does not need to raise capital to achieve its guidance, though the Company believes it could grow faster with additional growth equity.
Operational Highlights
  • Subsequent to the quarter, the Company issued 301,260 common shares on the exercise of 301,260 common share warrants CAD 0.70 for gross cash proceeds of approximately $156,073 (CAD 210,882).
  • On December 23, 2022, the Company announced it has extended and expanded its contract with a Fortune 50 California-based technology company, with additional revenue from this extension starting at US$400,000 for a combination of license revenue and services as the solutions are expanded across this Customer's users.
  • On October 12, 2022, the Company announced that during the quarter, it has both extended and expanded its license with HCL Technologies and executed a new license with SiTime Corp, reflecting the ongoing success of Boardwalktech's "land and expand" strategy through the combination of growth with an existing customer while adding a new licensed customer delivering a supply and demand solution on the Boardwalk Platform.
  • On February 2, 2023 , the Company announced it has added Jeff Evans, former EVP at Walmart to its corporate Advisory Board, joining other members of Boardwalktech's Advisory Board including: Ryan Tweedie, Strategic Advisor to the Global CIO at Accenture; Drue Freeman, former President of ACG Silicon Valley and longtime semiconductor company executive; Marc LaCarrubba, former senior leader at EY and current CTO at Humantelligence, Inc.; and, Don Haderle, former IBM Fellow (known as "the father of DB2").

"As we are about to enter our new fiscal year, we are very excited about the growth prospects ahead of us. Even though we doubled our recurring license revenue during our third quarter, and have had continued success from our 'land and expand' strategy, we are just getting started.  Our ARR and revenue are at record levels, while our EBITDA is at its best level since going public in 2018. Our business is in the early innings of a material inflection point." Chief Executive Officer Andrew T. Duncan commented. "We are fortunate that our hard work has presented us with not one, but two significant revenue opportunities. Not only have we added new teaming partners to close new banking customers, which we plan to announce in the near future, but have built a formidable Advisory Board to leverage their expertise, contacts, and business development acumen to gain and expand our customer base adding new revenue opportunities.  The Boardwalktech low code digital ledger platform continues to gain traction with these enterprises as it seamlessly solves the many problems associated with structured and unstructured data, delivering improved visibility and decision making along with outstanding results and ROI. The focus now is to leverage this momentum and  continue to execute and deliver great results to the benefit of our customers and investors."
