"In Q3, we delivered another record quarter of revenue and ARR while reducing our operating costs," commented David MacLaren, founder and CEO of MediaValet. "We believe we have the operational capacity to continue our growth trend while maintaining our current spend levels, and we're continuously refining our operations and fine-tuning our sales and marketing strategies to unlock additional potential."

Continued MacLaren, "A key component of our improved operating metrics is our ongoing investment in R&D. Our pursuit of innovation continues to set us apart and has recently been recognized by MarketsandMarkets who named us the leading "Innovator" in their 2017 Competitive Leadership Map of the global digital asset management market. Quarter-over-quarter, our R&D efforts increase our new customer wins, our customer retention rate and existing subscriptions, and our average direct and partner-led deal size."

"Subsequent to quarter end, our largest institutional shareholder increased their debt facility by $1 million, providing the capital we require to continue executing," added MacLaren. "Leveraging debt has become a standard Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") practice due to high margins and strong revenue streams, and we're confident that the compounding revenue effect of our business model supports our debt strategy. We feel this is evident from the total lifetime value of the new customers we've added this year. By multiplying gross customer adds by the average customer life, we estimate this value to be over $5 million so far this year. This well exceeds the $1.4 million of Sales and Marketing costs and the $4.4 million of total operating expenses we've spent this year in generating this additional recurring revenue stream. This is the first year in which our 'SaaS profitability' metric has been positive and we expect it to continue improving going forward."

Financial Highlights for Q3 and YTD 2017:

  • Delivered the highest quarterly Revenue to date of $598,538, up 64% from $364,244 in Q3'16 and up 12% sequentially. For the year-to-date period, Revenue increased to $1,597,771 up 67% from $957,261 last year. The majority of Revenue is from annual recurring Software-as-a-Service subscriptions. The growth reflects the increase in Annual Recurring Revenue ("ARR").
  • Grew ARR to $2,516,000, an increase of 70% compared to $1,481,764 at September 30, 2016, and a 9% sequential increase. The growth in ARR is due to new customer acquisition and expansion of existing customers subscriptions.
  • Added net new ARR of $213,521 in Q3'17, down 16% from $255,310 in Q3'16 and down 21% sequentially. Year-to-date, net new ARR added was $716,267, up 40% from last year-to-date. The lower net new ARR in Q3'17 is a result of foreign exchange from a weaker U.S. dollar and the timing of churn at industry standard rates. Conversely, the gross U.S. dollar contract value of new customer wins in Q3'17 was 11% higher than last year and 4% higher sequentially. This reflects a continued increase in new customer acquisition as a result of improving market positioning and sales team efficiency. A number of these new customer wins have been announced during this quarter and fiscal year.
  • Increased Gross Margin to 84% in Q3'17 from 80% in Q3'17 and 83% in Q2'17. Year-to-date, Gross Margin increased to 83% from 76% last year. The improved margins are a result of increasing Revenue, improved operating efficiencies, and new paid feature add-ons.
  • Operating Expenses were $1,367,463 for Q3'17, down 9% from $1,494,992 in Q3'16 and down 12% sequentially. Year-to-date, Operating Expenses were up 1% to $4,426,721. This reflects management efforts to continually increase operating efficiency.
  • Reported an EBITDA loss of $865,097 in Q3'17, down 28% from $1,202,187 in Q3'16 and down 22% sequentially. The improvement reflects continued Revenue growth, increasing Gross Margins and efforts to manage operating costs.
