By: Lindsay Sykes March 28, 2019
OTTAWA, Canada March 28, 2019 – Intouch Insight Ltd., (“Intouch”) (TSXV: INX) today announced its operating and financial results for the year ended December 31, 2018.
Revenue for the year ending 2018 was $14,888,450, which was 7% higher than revenue of $13,868,877 in 2017.
Due to the increased investment in product development and selling expenses regarding new software products, the net loss before income taxes was $2,730,797 compared to a net loss of $763,860 reported in 2017. Gross Margin remained stable at 52% in 2018 compared to 53% in 2017.
Company-defined adjusted EBITDA was a negative $1,896,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018, compared to an EBITDA of $151,000 for the year ended 2017. The decrease in EBITDA was planned and due to the significant investment into new software products.
“We are very pleased with the state of our technology, products and prospect for sales as we look forward. In addition to our patent pending technology and focus on artificial intelligence (“AI”) in the customer experience management software space, we have become a leader with disruptive technology verses our traditional competitors in the mystery shopping and operational auditing marketplace. Because of these investments we expect to double our revenue growth rate to 15% year over year to $17 Million in fiscal 2019,” said Cameron Watt, President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Having completed the majority of the up-front spending necessary for our technical repositioning and product launch we are excited to be planning to return the business to an EBITDA positive situation in 2019 while maintaining the spending required to ensure we capture our future growth potential,” said Watt.
