MotorK: Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Trading Update
Revenue Ahead of Guidance Continued Track Record of Growth
LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:
MotorK, plc (AMS: MTRK) (“MotorK” or the “Group”) today published a trading update in respect of its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021 (“FY 2021”).
Revenues Above Guidance
Performance in the fourth quarter remained robust and the Board expects FY 2021 results to be ahead of the Group’s expectations. The Group recorded €6.7 million in revenues for the fourth quarter, up 16% year-over-year. Revenues for FY 2021 are expected to be €27.6 million (including €0.3 million of December reported revenues from M&A1), up 43% year-over-year, and above the upper end of the previously stated guidance range.
Continued Organic Development
As of December 2021, the Group anticipates Annual Recurring Revenue (“ARR”)2 of €15.1 million (including €2.7 million from M&A), up 23% organically compared to €10 million in the prior year and up 50% while including M&A. This strong momentum reflects the solid performance of the Group’s cloud-based SaaS platform, sustained by a healthy level of R&D investment over the period.
Improved Financial Structure
Between December 2021 and early February 2022, and as previously communicated, the Group used part of its IPO proceeds to repay most of the outstanding financial loans, along with accrued interest and other sums, for a total amount of €23.7 million. The Group also refinanced the loan agreement with illimity Bank. Consequently, the Group today exhibits a substantial cash position of approximately €44 million. The reshaped financial structure will reduce borrowing costs and provide the Group with further flexibility to continue executing strategic M&A and investing in R&D.
UPCOMING FOURTH QUARTER AND FY 2021 EARNINGS ANNOUNCEMENT
On March 10, 2022, MotorK will announce its fourth quarter and FY 2021 financial results and hold a conference call. Details to register for the call will be made available on MotorK’s website (www.investors.motork.io) in advance, and registered participants will have access to a replay of the webcast.
