    • Professional Services revenues decreased to $0.58 million, compared to $0.75 million.

    • As discussed in the Company's Q2 sales update on July 11, 2023, once all deals awarded through the end of Q2-23 are fully executed, ARR is expected to increase to $7.1 million.

Chief Executive Officer, Silas Garrison, commented on the second quarter's financial results. 

"Once again, we are pleased to report sustained growth in subscription revenue through the second quarter of 2023, as compared to the same period last year.  While professional services revenue is down slightly year over year, that is not unexpected due to the uneven timing of completing performance obligations in individual contracts.  We have a number of customers that are wrapping up implementations, along with new customers coming on board, that should significantly increase professional services revenue through the remainder of the year and into 2024.

An intent focus on increasing margins and efficiency has begun to show results, with sales costs down 27% and G&A down 9% through Q2-23 as compared to the same period in 2022.  Excluding amortization, G&A is down 14% year over year.  We continue to improve processes and systems to increase cost efficiency, and expect further savings in subsequent quarters."

Non-IFRS Measures

ARR is a non-IFRS measure that provides an indication of the subscription revenue from customers that is expected from continued usage per the term of contract signed, and as such management believes ARR to be a meaningful measure for assessment of Company performance.  Key assumptions related to ARR figures are from continued usage of the services over the life of the agreement, with the calculation based on the annual average of subscription revenues over the life of the agreement.

EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure that is used as a measure of profit and loss.  Management believes EBITDA provides a meaningful measure for assessment of Company performance as it removes non-cash and non-operating expenses such as financing costs.  EBITDA is defined and calculated as net loss adjusted to remove interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.
