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-driven 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.

The opportunity in front of us is significant and we look forward to executing on our vision and achieving our objectives in 2022.”

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial 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, share-based 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 non-recurring 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.
