ProntoForms Reports Q2 2020 Financial Results

Records 18% growth in recurring revenue over Q2 2019

OTTAWA, August 20, 2020 -- ProntoForms Corporation (TSXV: PFM), the global leader in field-focused low-code application platforms for enterprise, announced today its second quarter (Q2) financial results for the period ended June 30, 2020.

 “We acknowledge our customers’ continued resilience and patience during these challenging times. When the COVID-19 pandemic started, we successfully adapted our operations with new home and virtual work environments,” said Alvaro Pombo, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ProntoForms. “We saw a slight decrease in our revenue base in March, April, and May but ended the quarter with a strong June resulting in the net growth of our Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) Base of 2.5% over the previous quarter. We recorded positive income in the quarter by accessing COVID-related government assistance and managing expenses. We ended the quarter in a strong financial position with $5.5 million in cash.”

Mr. Pombo continued, “Recurring revenue decreased by 1% sequentially following 4% sequential growth in Q1 2020. Despite elevated SMB churn early on, our ARR Base increased to $16.14 million at June 30, 2020 as several deals were finalized towards the end of the quarter. We continued strong enterprise expansion, and customers with more than $100,000 of ARR each represented 38% of that base—up from 30% a year ago.”

Mr. Pombo continued, “Leading IT analysts see continued investment in low-code applications as a long-term business trend. Additionally, they note that the pandemic is elevating custom low-code apps to the CIO office as key solutions to accelerate enterprise digital transformation strategies. We continue to invest in and release cutting edge capabilities in our platform to bolster existing field operation tech stacks and empower field technicians. We see the ongoing expansion of use cases and subscribers of our enterprise base as an indicator of the quantifiable value our platform provides to customers.”
