We are experiencing rebounding momentum as evidenced by our third quarter recurring revenue increase of 16% over Q3 2019 and 4% over Q2 2020.We increased our Annualized Recurring Revenue ("ARR") Base to $17 million at September 30, 2020 representing 5% growth over the June 30, 2020 balance. We continued strong enterprise expansion and customers with more than $100,000 of ARR each represented 39% of that base, up from 35% a year ago," said Alvaro Pombo, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ProntoForms. "We also solidified our financial position, finishing the quarter with $5.7 million in cash, and since quarter end we received an additional CAD $1,957,500 in proceeds from the exercise of warrants. We also recently replaced our legacy mezzanine debt with a senior credit facility to provide lower rates and more financial flexibility over the longer term."

We are pleased to be featured in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Low-Code Application Development Platforms. Additionally, we were named the leader in G2's Mobile Forms Automation Software category, determined by verified customer reviews. This strong market position is the result of listening to our customers' feedback and continuing to invest in our platform to offer the most advanced capabilities without sacrificing ease of use. That fundamental formula is working." ”
