ProntoForms Reports Q1 2020 Financial Results

Achieves 25% growth in recurring revenue over Q1 2019

OTTAWA, May 7, 2020 -- ProntoForms Corporation (TSXV: PFM), the global leader in field-focused low-code application platforms for enterprise, announced today its first quarter (Q1) financial results for the period ended March 31, 2020.

“We acknowledge our great customers, some of whom are experiencing challenges in their industries and others experiencing a surge in demand with greater work complexity and more stringent operational requirements during the global pandemic. Customer usage has shown to be resilient, demonstrating that our platform is being utilized for essential business processes. From February, we were monitoring the coronavirus situation and actively managing in accordance with our Business Continuity Plan, and on March 12th we directed our employees to work from home. The ProntoForms services plus our operational tools are cloud-based and regularly tested to support different continuity scenarios, which enabled us to adjust quickly. Our employees have been resilient through the transition, remaining highly-motivated and delivering at a very high level throughout our organization. Our efforts have been focused on maintaining high levels of service, listening to customers to address their evolving needs, and working as rapidly as we can to support the deployment of new use cases. Our top priorities are our customers’ success and the financial viability of our operations for our employees, customers, and shareholders.” said Alvaro Pombo, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ProntoForms.

Mr. Pombo continued, “We are pleased to report that Q1 was another strong quarter with steady recurring revenue growth, further enterprise expansion, and reduction in losses. Recurring revenue grew by 4% sequentially following 8% sequential growth in Q4 2019. This growth came through both direct sales engagements and partners. Our Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) Base remained flat from year end at $15.7 million at March 31, 2020 as a number of deals were pushed out due to operational disruptions with our customers. Customers with more than $100,000 of ARR each represented 37% of that base—up from 28% a year ago. We continued to strengthen our balance sheet ending the quarter with cash of $6.2 million, up from $5.7 million at December 31, 2019.”

Mr. Pombo continued, “Our agile platform is a powerful addition to existing tech stacks. Citizen developers can optimize their field operations with quantifiable positive business outcomes by enabling the edge of their organization with contextual guided work tools. We believe the current business climate will accelerate digital transformation in the field as many organizations are facing a greater sense of urgency to improve their operations and customer interactions while also monitoring and ensuring technician health and safety. These customer needs were being addressed by our platform before this crisis, so we expect interest to continue and grow.”
