Company to report robust performance improvements in its operating metrics
- Record Q1-FY2024 recurring revenue growth
- Significantly higher margins on technology fees compared to blended margins
- Strong control over sales and technology expenses through automation and AI
REDWOOD CITY, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 11, 2023 / Biotricity Inc. (NASDAQ:BTCY) (“Biotricity” or the “Company”), a Technology-as-a-Service (TaaS) company operating in the remote cardiac monitoring sector of consumer healthcare, is pleased to report that its business continues to demonstrate strong fundamentals that are propelling the Company towards profitability. Biotricity anticipates announcing its best-quarter yet, for the first fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2023.
For the First Quarter Fiscal 2024, these key fundamentals showed continued improvement:
- Growth in top-line revenue, with an increase in technology fees that are recurring;
- Reductions in operating expenses, including selling and technology expenses through automation and AI;
- Stable but improving gross profit margins that are expected to improve due to increasing technology fee revenues as a percent of sales.
Additionally, management is focussed on monitoring adjusted EBITDA, adjusted to remove non-cash expenditures to monitor its progress towards achieving positive net operating cash flows, since this metric is a good indicator of operating cash flows not impacted by interest, share-based compensation and other non-cash expenditures.This metric emphasizes the inherent strength of the business fundamentals, allowing a clearer understanding of the Company’s financial health.
“We are pleased to announce that our results for the first quarter of FY2024 show continued strength of our fundamentals. We have enhanced our margins, materially lowered our expenses, all while driving revenue growth,” commented Waqaas Al-Siddiq, CEO of Biotricity. “These achievements further bolster our confidence for the remainder of the year. As we continue moving forward, we aim to provide our investors with a clearer understanding of our business drivers and metrics aligned with the industry. One of the measures we use to monitor the health of the business is the amount of revenue and cash-based expenses provided and consumed by our operations to give deeper insights into the strength of our business model and provide enhanced visibility into our path to profitability. By reporting adjusted EBITDA-adjusted to eliminate non-cash charges and interest-we present a better perspective on the future cash flows of the business. This approach also highlights our accelerated progress towards net operating cash flow break-even, positive EBITDA and net profitability in the coming quarters and calendar 2024.”
