Finding Clarity in a Sea of Regulatory Complexity

With a game changing product and a total addressable market of over $37 billion, investors are watching this category pioneer very closely

For decision makers in regulated industries, it can sometimes feels like complex legislation is an insurmountable obstacle. 

That’s why FiscalNote (NYSE:NOTE) is combining human insights and the power of AI to simplify regulatory compliance and help get more done faster.

 

Watch a short video to learn more about FiscalNote and our family of brands

Bringing order from chaos

Regulations are complex and getting worse, making it extremely difficult to get things done, especially in regulated industries. FiscalNote has a powerful and innovative solution.

Category creator

To put it simply, nobody else is doing this, and FiscalNote has a huge head start on any would-be competitors.

The power of AI

Regulations are complex, long, and constantly changing. With its proprietary AI technology, FiscalNote makes quick work of tasks that would seem insurmountable to human workers. 

Clear value proposition

FiscalNote delivers actionable insight to decision makers who need it most. It helps ensure compliance and allows decision makers to easily navigate an increasingly complex regulatory environment.

Universally applicable

Regulation touches almost every business, industry, and agency these days. The market for something like FiscalNote that makes sense of the chaos is large and growing.

Growing market

The regulatory environment, already very complex, is only expected to get worse as more industries are regulated and changes are made to existing regulations. It is becoming nearly impossible for decision makers to keep up with, and that’s unlikely to change any time soon.

Diversified client base

FiscalNote has clients across all sectors of industry and government, over 5000 organizations currently, including major corporations and the Executive Office of the President of the United States.

Rapid, sustainable growth

Based on the above, it should come as no surprise to hear that FiscalNote is growing, both in terms of clients and revenues. This is a classic case of being in the right place at the right time, and FiscalNote has the right product for what the market needs now.

 

Actionable Intelligence for Humans

Like it or not, regulation and legislation has reached a level of complexity that makes even what should be a simple task or decision exceedingly difficult. 

Decision makers now have to consider all the legal implications, current and future, of every decision, often without good information about current policies, and certainly not what’s coming in the future.

This problem is only getting worse, and the team at FiscalNote decided to do something about it. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sifting through the chaos

Chaos may be a strong word here, but ask anyone who has tried to do this type of work recently, and they’ll tell you if anything it’s an understatement. The levels of complexity are growing fast, and even for experienced professionals, there’s a lot to keep track of. 

Old methods simply can’t keep up. With FiscalNote, decision makers get the information they need, easily accessible, with all the tedious background work done for them. The system sorts through the data, analyzes regulations and their implications, and presents the information in a way that lets leaders do what they do best; make decisions. 

 

Pioneering new markets

In a recent survey, more than a third of surveyed global CEOs reported that regulatory and policy issues are the biggest threats to their businesses. With the scope and the importance of this problem, it’s easy to see the market potential for someone who comes along and solves it. 

That’s exactly what FiscalNote has done, and as both the leader and pioneer in this innovative new market, they’re set to reap the rewards.

 

How AI can help

These days it seems that everybody is talking about AI, and while some of the projects seem a bit absurd, what FiscalNote is doing makes a lot of sense.

Computers have always helped humans with boring and tedious work, starting with mathematical calculations, and now moving into other, less technical disciplines. One of the most promising of these is the legal and regulatory space, where long, boring, tedious work has historically been the backbone of every major decision and action. 

Without going too deep into the boring, technical details, FiscaNote’s innovative platform streamlines and automates the most tedious parts of the job, collecting, ingesting, and processing data and turning it into actionable insights for decision makers. 

The system was built to handle complexity, the kind of thing that would push human analysts to the breaking point. 

The platform is scalable, based on modern cloud technologies, and integrates with existing systems. It works with decision makers, handling the tasks computers do best and freeing people up to make decisions, not process data. 

 

 

Just what industry needs

This is the sentiment across FiscalNote’s user base, and between the time and cost savings, predictive modeling, and streamlined compliance and insights, the value proposition is clear. 

Almost every business and government agency has to deal with complex regulations at some point, and for many of them, this is a daily occurrence. Anything that streamlines the process, ensures compliance, and makes decisions faster, easier, and more accurate is going to be in high demand. 

The potential market for this is huge, estimated at over $37 billion for legal and regulatory information services. As we’ve seen, FiscalNote is the pioneer and the leader in this space, and its impressive list of clients proves the demand is there.

Diversified blue chip client list

As you can see in the image above, some very big names already trust FiscalNote to make their jobs easier. From major financial institutions, energy companies, healthcare providers, and even the CIA, decision makers trust FiscalNote for important, life and death matters. 

Regulation is here to stay, and a growing number of companies and agencies are realizing they need to do something about it, allowing them to remain in compliance while also acting quickly and decisively when it matters most.

The proof is in the revenue

Given what we’ve seen so far about the problems complex regulations create and how well FiscalNote works to alleviate these problems, it should come as no surprise to investors to see a solid history of rapid revenue growth.

From $65 million in 2020, FiscalNote has grown to over $173 million revenue so far in 2022, an impressive 2.6x increase. Driven by a subscription-based SaaS business model, over 90% of revenue is contracted and recurring, with clients who rely upon FiscalNote for their most critical work and decisions.

And as much as we’ve already seen the company grow, this could be just the beginning of something much bigger. The problem FiscalNote solves is important, nearly universal, and only getting worse. The company leads the field, and its results show that more people are realizing this all the time.

 

Summary For Investors

Regulatory complexity is a major and growing problem. From government to finance, industry to healthcare, the sprawling web of legislation and compliance is taking its toll, paralyzing decision makers who often don’t even know where to begin.

FiscalNote’s innovative platform, the first of its kind and pioneer of a whole new category, cuts through the chaos, wades through the endless sea of data, and presents end users and decision makers with simple, actionable insights they can use. 

Already trusted by over 5000 customers, including government agencies and major companies doing critically important work, this could still be just the beginning of the story of FiscalNote’s rise to the top. 

Regulation touches nearly everyone, and as complexity grows, so does demand for something to make sense of it all. FiscalNote is the name people trust, and its rapidly growing revenues reflect that. 

As big as the last few years have been for the company, this might be just the beginning. There’s over $37 billion of potential market out there for this kind of service, and FiscalNote is at the forefront of the race to capture it. 

For investors, this could be a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor with a company solving one of the biggest problems of the modern age and helping the most important work get done. 

FiscalNote trades under NYSE:NOTE.

DISCLAIMER

Who are we and what do we do? We are paid advertisers, also known as stock touts or stock promoters, who disseminate favorable information (the “Information”) about publicly traded companies (the “Profiled Issuers”). How is the Information published? We publish the Information on our Website, in newsletters, audio services, live interviews, featured “research” reports, on message boards and in email communications for specific time periods that are agreed upon between us and the Profiled Issuer or third party paying us. Our publication of the Information is known as a “Campaign”. Will everyone receive the Information at the same time? No. The Information may be sent to potential investors at different times that are minutes, hours, days or even weeks apart. How is a potential investor impacted if he/she receives the Information later than other investors? Typically, the trading volume and price of a Profiled Issuer’s securities increases after the Information is provided to the first group of investors. Therefore, the later an investor receives the Information, the more likely it is that he/she may suffer increased trading losses if he/she purchases the securities of a Profiled Issuer. What will happen when the Campaign ends? Most, if not all, of the Profiled Issuers are penny stocks that are illiquid and whose securities are subject to wide fluctuations in trading price and volume. During the Campaign the trading volume and price of the securities of each Profiled Issuer will likely increase significantly. When the Campaign ends, the volume and price of the Profiled Issuer will likely decrease dramatically. As a result, investors who purchase during the Campaign and hold shares of the Profiled Issuer when the Campaign ends will probably lose most, if not all, of their investment. Why do we publish only favorable Information? We only publish favorable information because we are compensated to publish only favorable information. Why don’t we publish negative Information? We don’t publish negative information because we are not paid to publish negative information. We are paid to publish only favorable information. Is the Information complete, accurate, truthful or reliable? No. The Information is a snapshot that provides only positive information about the Profiled Issuers.

If we say we make “stock picks,” are those picks our own? No, they are not. We are compensated to advertise the securities we are told to advertise. What will happen if an investor relies on the Information? If an investor relies on the Information in making an investment decision it is highly probable that the investor will lose most, if not all, of his or her investment. Investors should not rely on the Information to make an investment decision. Who pays us to publish the Information? The source of our compensation varies depending upon the particular circumstances of the Campaign. We are compensated by the Profiled Issuers, third party shareholders and other parties related to the Profiled Issuers such as officers and/or directors who will derive a financial or other benefit from an increase in the trading price and/or volume of a Profiled Issuer’s securities.

We may urge investors to purchase the securities of a Profiled Issuer while we sell our own shares. The anti-fraud provisions of federal and state securities laws require us to inform you that we may engage in buying and selling of Profiled Issuer’s securities before, during and after the Campaigns. What are other risks that investors should be aware of? Any investment in the Profiled Issuers involves a high degree of risk and uncertainty. The securities may be subject to extreme volume and price volatility, especially during the Campaigns. Favorable past performance of a Profiled Issuer does not guarantee future results. If you purchase the securities of the Profiled Issuers, you should be prepared to lose your entire investment. Some of the risks involved in purchasing securities of the Profiled Issuers include, but are not limited to the risks stated below.
  • We do not endorse, independently verify or assert the truthfulness, completeness, accuracy or reliability of the Information. We conduct no due diligence or investigation whatsoever of the Information or the Profiled Issuers and we do not receive any verification from the Profiled Issuer regarding the Information we disseminate.
  • If we publish any percentage gain of a Profiled Issuer from the previous day close in the Information, it is not and should not be construed as an indication that the future stock price or future operational results will reflect gains or otherwise prove to be advantageous to your investment.
  • The Information may contain statements asserting that a Profiled Issuer’s stock price has increased over a certain period of time which may reflect an arbitrary period of time, and is not predictive or of any analytical quality; as such, you should not rely upon the (favorable) Information in your analysis of the present or future potential of a Profiled Issuer or its securities.
  • The Information should not be interpreted in any way, shape, form or manner whatsoever as an indication of the Profiled Issuer’s future stock price or future financial performance.
  • You may encounter difficulties determining what, if any, portions of the Information are material or non-material, making it all the more imperative that you conduct your own independent investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities with the assistance of your legal, tax and financial advisor.
  • We or other stock promoters may receive free trading shares as compensation or we may acquire such shares in open market transactions before and during the Campaigns, and we may sell the shares we acquire at any time, even during the Campaigns while publishing the Favorable Information. When we sell the shares of the Profiled Issuers that we hold, the price at which investors can sell their shares will dramatically decrease and will likely cause investors to suffer trading losses.
  • We may sell securities of the Profiled Issuers for less than target prices set forth in the Information, and we may profit by selling our securities during the Campaigns while investors encounter losses.
  • When we acquire, purchase or sell the securities of the Profiled Issuers, it may (a) cause significant volatility in the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (b) cause temporary but unrealistic increases in volume and price of the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (c) if selling, cause the Profiled Issuer’s stock price to decline dramatically; and (d) permit us to make substantial profits while investors who purchase during the Campaign experience significant losses.
  • The securities of the Profiled Issuers are high risk, unstable, unpredictable and illiquid which may make it difficult for investors to sell their securities of the Profiled Issuers.
  • If we are compensated in improperly free trading securities of the Profiled Issuers, either directly or indirectly from persons who claim to be non-affiliates of such Profiled Issuer, we and the Profiled Issuer or third party could be subject to SEC Enforcement Action, including allegations of an illegal distribution in violation of Section 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act.
  • We may hire third party service providers and stock promoters to electronically disseminate live news regarding the Profiled Issuers, yet we have no control over the content of and do not verify the information that the Profiled Issuers and/or third party service providers publish. These third party service providers are likely compensated for providing positive information about the Issuer and fail to disclose their compensation to you.
If a Profiled Issuer is an SEC reporting company, it could be delinquent (not current) in its periodic reporting obligations (i.e., in its quarterly and annual reports), or if it is an OTC Markets Pink Sheet quoted company, it may be delinquent in its Pink Sheet reporting obligations, which may result in OTC Markets posting a negative legend pertaining to the Profiled Issuer at www.otcmarkets.com, as follows: (i) “Limited Information” for companies with financial reporting problems, economic distress, or that are unwilling to file required reports with the Pink Sheets; (ii) “No Information,” which characterizes companies that are unable or unwilling to provide any disclosure to the public markets, to the SEC or the Pink Sheets; and (iii) “Caveat Emptor,” signifying buyers should be aware that there is a public interest concern associated with a company’s illegal spam campaign, questionable stock promotion, known investigation of a company’s fraudulent activity or its insiders, regulatory suspensions or disruptive corporate actions. If the Information states that a Profiled Issuer’s securities are consistent with the future economic trends or even if your independent research indicates that, you should be aware that economic trends have their own limitations, including: (a) that economic trends or predictions may be speculative; (b) consumers, producers, investors, borrowers, lenders and government may react in unforeseen ways and be affected by behavioral biases that we are unable to predict; (c) human and social factors may outweigh future economic trends that we state may or will occur; (d) clear cut economic predictions have their limitations in that they do not account for the fundamental uncertainty in economic life, as well as ordinary life; (e) economic trends may be disrupted by sudden jumps, disruptions or other factors that are not accounted for in economic trends analysis; in other words, past or present data predicting future economic trends may become irrelevant in light of new circumstances and situations in which uncertainty becomes reality rather than predicted economic outcome; or (f) if the trend predicted involves a single result, it ignores other scenarios that may be crucial to make a decision in the event of unknown contingencies. The Information is presented only as a brief snapshot of the Profiled Issuer and should only be used, at most, and if at all, as a starting point for you to conduct a thorough investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities. You should consult your financial, legal or other adviser(s) and avail yourself of the filings and information that may be accessed at www.sec.govwww.sec.gov, www.otcmarkets.com or other electronic media, including: (a) reviewing SEC periodic reports (Forms 10-Q and 10-K), reports of material events (Form 8-K), insider reports (Forms 3, 4, 5 and Schedule 13D); (b) reviewing Information and Disclosure Statements and unaudited financial reports filed with the OTCMarkets.com; (c) obtaining and reviewing publicly available information contained in commonly known search engines such as Google; and (d) consulting investment guides at www.sec.gov and www.finra.org. You should always be cognizant that the Profiled Issuers may not be current in their reporting obligations with the SEC and the OTC Markets and/or have negative legends and designations at otcmarkets.com.
