ActivePort Group Ltd (“ActivePort” or “the Company”), (ASX:ATV) is pleased to report strong software revenue growth for the quarter, demonstrating the success of the company’s strategy to deliver cash flow from high margin software sales.
- Year-to-date revenue stands at $10.27M, a 52% increase from H1 FY22 into Q3 FY22.
- Software revenue is now 29.7% of total revenue up from 7.9% in the previous quarter.
- Contracted software revenue significantly reducing quarterly cash consumption.
- Gross profit has risen from 32% in Q2 to 62% in Q3, demonstrating the positive impact software sales have on the profitability of the business.
Overall, the business is executing on its strategy and seeing strong take-up of the core software products. Software revenue is highly profitable and will make a significant cash contribution to the Company’s bottom line in coming quarters.
Total group revenue is showing strong growth and steadily increasing quarter on quarter. A largeone-off hardware contract in December increased the Q2 revenue above the average but the growth from Q1 to Q3 shows the underlying average revenue growth is accelerating.
Pleasingly, software revenue as a percentage of total revenue is accelerating, reaching 29.7% of total sales for the quarter, up from 7.9% in the previous quarter. Software revenue has high gross profit and therefore the $1.08M of software revenue in Q3 made a significant contribution to the company’s cash reserves.
ActivePort executive continues to focus on cost management to maintain a consistent cost base. This is complemented by a positive cash contribution from software sales that should see total cash burn reduce to circa $700K by the end of Q4.
The previously higher quarterly cash expenditure (in Q3) will stabilise due to the growing high margin software sales, and we expect build on this trend into FY23 and be able to demonstrate ongoing revenue growth and positive cash flows.
