Jasper Commerce Announces Q4 Fiscal 2023 Financial Results
Significant Cost Reduction & Continued Path to Profitability
Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 28, 2023) – Jasper Commerce Inc. (TSXV: JPIM) (“Jasper” or “the Company”), a leading provider of Product Information Management solutions, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 (“Q4 2023”) and for the fiscal year ending July 31, 2023. All amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified.
Jasper reported a net loss before tax of $357,656 for Q4 2023. This shows improvement over a loss of $622,978 in Q3 2023 and a substantial improvement over a loss of $886,455 in Q4 2022. The decreased loss in Q4 2023 largely stemmed from a drop in operating expenses, from $966,493 in the previous quarter to $710,750 in Q4 2023. Expenses fell in all categories reflecting success in execution of Jasper’s breakeven strategic plan announced in Q2 2023.
The recognized software subscription revenue for the quarter was $332,892, a 6% increase from $314,460 in the prior quarter, and flat from $332,627 in subscription revenue in Q4, 2022. Professional services revenue fell to $20,202 in the quarter, down from $29,055 in the prior quarter, and from $40,171 in Q4, 2022. This is reflective of Jasper’s strategic move away from unprofitable business as it prioritized cost reduction and a push to profitability.
The total revenue for Q4 2023 was $353,094, a slight increase from $343,515 in Q3 2023 and a decline from $372,798 in Q4 2022, mainly due to lower services revenue.
“Jasper Commerce set in motion its transformation plan in December 2022, with the twin goals of reducing operating expenses and growing revenue”, commented Ken Gutierrez, Jasper’s Interim CEO. “We made great progress this year, and we will continue to focus on improving the results in the 2024 fiscal year.”
This news release should be read in conjunction with Jasper’s audited financial statements and the accompanying notes, as at and for the quarter and fiscal year ended July 31, 2023.
