ProntoForms Reports Q1 2022 Financial Results

OTTAWA, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ProntoForms Corporation (TSXV: PFM), the global leader in no-code app development platforms for field teams, announced today its first quarter (Q1) financial results for the period ended March 31, 2022. All amounts are in US dollars unless otherwise stated.

“We achieved 14% growth in recurring revenue over the 2021 comparable quarter. Our Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) base at the end of Q1 was $19.6 million with 41% from customers with greater than $100,000 of ARR. As we continue our transition to focus on enterprise sales, we saw a Q1 decrease in our ARR base by 0.7%. The decrease can be attributed partly to a 1.5% reduction in ARR from the completion of a one-year project and lower new bookings in the quarter as we transition through the longer sales cycles typical of the larger enterprise sales on which we are increasingly focused. We are pleased that we were able to follow up our first quarter with a recent enterprise expansion of over $180,000 ARR, bringing that customer to a total of approximately $870,000 ARR,” said Alvaro Pombo, Founder and Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Pombo continued, “Our most recent customer expansion win demonstrates the success of our enhanced go-to-market. We’re scaling conversations with our customers on how our platform can help them address pressing business challenges, like inflation and the labor market. Our improved team is uncovering more enterprise expansion opportunities.”

Financial Highlights – 2022 First Quarter

  • Recurring revenue in Q1 2022 increased by 14% to $4.89 million compared to $4.31 million in Q1 2021, and increased by 2% compared to $4.80 million in Q4 2021.
  • Total revenue for Q1 2022 increased by 9% to $5.04 million compared to $4.61 million in Q1 2021, and increased by 1% compared to $5.01 million in Q4 2021.

  • Operating loss for Q1 2022 was $1.49 million, up from an operating loss of $1.07 million in Q1 2021 and up from an operating loss of $1.03 million in Q4 2021.

Recent Operational Highlights

Notable new and expansion progress from enterprise customers, including:

  • A Fortune 500 power and renewable energy global enterprise deployed ProntoForms’ technology starting with 450 subscriptions across two sub-divisions. ProntoForms supports health and safety reporting, inspection processes for wind and hydro turbines, and gathering performance metrics to enable their field engineers and salespeople.
  • A Fortune 500 oil & gas enterprise has expanded its multi-year deployment of ProntoForms by 200 subscriptions for a total of over 2000 subscriptions as part of a global Master Services Agreement (MSA) where ProntoForms is the sole mobile forms solution approved for use in field operations.
