Voxtur Provides Financial Guidance for Q4 and FY 2021 Ended December 31, 2021, and FY 2022
TORONTO and TAMPA, Fla., March 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Voxtur Analytics Corp. (TSXV: VXTR; OTCQB: VXTRF) ("Voxtur" or the "Company"), a North American technology company creating a more transparent and accessible real estate lending ecosystem, is pleased to announce its financial guidance for Q4 and FY 2021 and FY 2022.
Q4 2021 and FY 2021 Financial Guidance
The Company's fourth quarter growth was driven by the launch of its valuation technology lender platform and organic expansion through new offerings within its existing client base. Additionally, the Company continued its strategic integrations of acquired technologies and data to drive growth. For Q4 2021, revenue is expected to be in the range of $34M-$39M, and for FY 2021, revenue is expected to be in the range of $92M-$97M.
The anticipated FY 2021 revenue represents a year-over-year increase of 349% compared to FY 2020, and anticipated Q4 2021 revenue represents a year-over-year increase of 468% from Q4 2020 revenue, in each case when using the low end of the expected revenue range. Additionally, anticipated revenue for Q4 2021 represents a 38% increase over Q3 2021 revenue when using the low end of the expected revenue range.
For Q4 2021, gross margin is expected to be in the range of $12M-$14M, and for FY 2021, gross margin is expected to be in the range of $37M-$39M. The anticipated FY 2021 gross margin represents a year-over-year increase of 295% compared to FY 2020, and anticipated Q4 2021 gross margin represents a year-over-year increase of 353% from Q4 2020 gross margin, in each case when using the low end of the expected gross margin range. Anticipated gross margin for Q4 2021 represents a 28% increase over Q3 2021 gross margin when using the low end of the expected gross margin range.
FY 2022 Financial Guidance
As a result of an expected increase in revenue and efficiencies gained from investments made in 2021, the Company anticipates revenue for FY 2022 in the range of $170M-$190M. This expected revenue for FY 2022 represents a 85% year-over-year increase from the expected revenue for FY 2021, when using the low end of the expected revenue range.
The Company anticipates gross margin for FY 2022 in the range of $87M-$97M. This expected gross margin for FY 2022 represents a 136% year-over-year increase from the expected gross margin for FY 2021, when using the low end of the expected gross margin range.
Voxtur's ability to reach the high end of its projected revenue and gross margin ranges for FY 2022 and overall guidance provided above is driven by certain expectations and assumptions including, but not limited to, the successful integration and continued growth of investments made by the Company in FY 2021, the success of the Company's new product offerings in valuation, title, and property tax, and those additional expectations and assumptions set forth in the “Forward-Looking Information” section below. The Company's ability to reach the high end of its projected revenue and gross margin ranges for FY 2022 is further contingent on the combined impact of macroeconomic tailwinds and the execution of new revenue-generating initiatives. Voxtur continues to focus on revenue growth through new data-drivn digital alternatives to traditional products in valuation, title, and property tax. Additionally, the Company expects to see organic growth from an increase in desktop appraisals as a result of recent announcements by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac allowing use of such products, the expansion of its property tax analytics platform, and the launch of its real estate asset management platform. Additional benefits are expected to come from the continuing effects of the lifting of foreclosure moratoria in the U.S., which is expected to result in increased revenue from default management, and the federal government's strong push for more affordable home ownership in the U.S., which should open the door for widespread adoption of Voxtur's alternative valuation and title products. Finally, Voxtur expects significant revenue growth from new client business as a result of its investment in enterprise sales efforts.
“2021 was a transformational year for Voxtur, and we are delighted to provide guidance to the market on our Q4 and Year End 2021 performance,” said Jim Albertelli, CEO. “We remain focused on becoming the largest and most trusted provider of data-driven, SaaS-based applications, and tech-enabled services in the property technology space. 2022 promises to be another year of high growth for our business as we add key foundational pieces to scale and deliver profitable growth to our shareholders.
