Voxtur achieves 183% year-over-year revenue growth from Q1 2020
GlobeNewswire — Voxtur Analytics Corp. (TSXV: VXTR; OTCQB: VXTRF) (“Voxtur” or “the Company”) today announced that its unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2021, and the related Management’s Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”), are available at sedar.com and on the Company’s website at voxtur.com.
Voxtur entered 2021 with robust growth initiatives in place and achieved a 183% increase in revenue year-over-year for the first quarter. The Company achieved its first milestone of the quarter with the merger of iLOOKABOUT Corp., Voxtur Technologies, Inc., Bright Line Title, LLC, and certain technology assets of James E.Albertelli, P.A. The merger was a critical turning point that resulted in the Company’s name change from iLOOKABOUT to Voxtur and laid the foundation for future growth. The first full month of operations for the merged entity (March 1 to March 31, 2021) resulted in revenue of approximately $7.3 million (CAD).
Following the merger, the Company achieved a second milestone by closing an oversubscribed, non-brokered private placement of common shares of the Company for gross proceeds of $35 million (CAD).
“The success of the private placement is a sign of confidence from our investors and reflects their belief in and support for our growth strategy. This infusion of capital will allow us to accelerate our strategic plan,” said CEO and Chairman Gary Yeoman. “More specifically, we will use this money to grow and scale our platforms across North America, creating efficiencies for our stakeholders and increased returns for our investors.”
The Company achieved its third milestone of the quarter when it entered into an agreement to acquire Appraisers Now, Ltd. (“Anow”), an automated appraisal workflow management platform for the global appraisal market. The acquisition of Anow bolsters the Company’s recurring revenue stream and accelerates the development of its data ingestion engine. “We believe in a proactive approach to solving industry-wide problems,” said President Jim Albertelli. “We will continue to focus our efforts on modernizing real estate finance and setting new standards in the industry.”

|Adjusted EBITDA, Unaudited1||1,163||(655)|
Discussion with respect to the above noted results can be found in the Company’s MD&A.
1Adjusted EBITDA is an unaudited non-GAAP measure and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures employed by other reporting issuers. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides meaningful information with respect to the financial performance and value of the Company, as items that may obscure the underlying trends in the business performance are excluded. Adjusted EBITDA is defined and calculated by the Company as earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation/amortization of property and equipment, intangible assets and right-of-use assets, sharebased compensation expense, foreign exchange gains (losses) recorded through profit and loss, and other costs or income that are: (i) non-operating; (ii) non-recurring; and/or (iii) related to strategic initiatives. The Company classifies income or costs as nonrecurring if income or costs similar in nature are not reasonably expected to occur within the next two years nor have occurred during the prior two years, and such costs are significant.
The Company will host a conference call on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at 10:00 A.M. Eastern Standard Time to review first quarter financial results and discuss corporate developments. The call can be accessed from the U.S. and Canada using the information below.
