Vancouver, BC – December 19, 2022 – Jasper Commerce Inc. (TSX-V: JPIM) (“Jasper” or the “Company“), a leading provider of Product Information Management (“PIM“) solutions, announces its first fiscal quarter (“Q1 2023”) financial results for the three month period ended October 31, 2022. Unless otherwise indicated, all dollar amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars.
Financial Highlights – 8% Subscription Revenue Growth in Three Months Ended October 31, 2022
- Revenues from subscriptions grew 8% year-on-year in Q1 2023 to $308,554 versus $285,038 for the three months ended October 31, 2021 (“Q1 2022”). Revenue growth from subscriptions was driven by an increase in Enterprise license sales and is consistent with management’s plan to steadily add subscription revenue every month.
- Total revenue was $379,726 for the three months ended October 31, 2022, declining 16% year-over-year from $452,262 in Q1 2022. The year-over-year decline was due to a $96,052 reduction in lower margin professional services, as the Company reduced focus on custom projects.
- Expenses for Q1 2023 were $1,691,366 versus $1,443,953 for Q1 2022. Expenses increased primarily due to increased investment in employee headcount and outsourced services.
- Net loss for Q1 2023 was $1,311,640 compared to a net loss of $991,691 for Q1 2022. The larger net-loss in Q1 2023 was primarily due to an increase in headcount compared to Q1 2022 in order to support the Company’s growth strategy.
Management Commentary and Outlook
Looking forward to fiscal 2023, management expects the revenue growth of the SaaS PIM Subscription business to accelerate. Revenue from professional services will likely decline as a percentage of overall revenue.
