Today March 8th Participation in the Q1 Virtual Investor Summit
VANCOUVER, B.C., Canada – March 8, 2022 - Nextech AR Solutions Corp. (“Nextech'' or the “Company”) (OTCQB: NEXCF) (NEO: NTAR) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29), a Metaverse Company and leading provider of augmented reality (“AR”) experience technologies and services announces its unaudited preliminary financial and operating results for the 2021 fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.
In 2021 we saw a substantial uptick in customer adoption of our technology that are either signing 12-month ARR contracts or annual repeat customers totalling $975,000. The company is seeing this uptick in new customers resulting in additional ARR continuing in 2022.
The 2021 recurring revenue of $975,000 is broken down as follows:
- 12/31/2021- Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) was approximately $475,000
- Additionally in 2021 the company saw $500,000+ annual repeat business from customers
The above resulted in total Renewable Software Licenses revenue estimated at $1.4 million in 2021 +316% from 2020.
2021 Annual Financial Highlights (unaudited):
- Annual Total Revenue $25.9 million (up 47% from 2020)
- Product Sales $19.2 million (up 38% from 2020)
- Technology Services $5.3 million (up 55% from 2020)
- Renewable Software Licenses $1.4 million (up 316% from 2020)
- Annual Total Gross Profit $9.8 million (flat with 2020)
- Product Sales $8.0 million (up 14% from 2020)
- Technology Services $1.8 million (not comparable to 2020 as measured on different basis, see Q3 and annual MD&A for explanation)
The above figures are unaudited and may be subject to change. Audited figures for the year ended December 31, 2021 will be published towards the end of March 2022.
“2021 was a transformative year for Nextech as we became a Metaverse company and we succeeded in moving our business model to a much stronger Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) formula.. We ended 2021 strong with $975,000 in recurring revenue coming in and renewable software license revenue totalling $1.4 million. In 2022 we are successfully signing up new customers while simultaneously building out our Metaverse Suite of products; which I believe will give us a major competitive edge in the 3D/AR ecommerce market. For 2022, we are well positioned with our end-to-end vertically integrated technology stack extending beyond just 3D models for ecommerce into exciting and lucrative markets like: 3D human holograms, NFT’s and spatial mapping.” He continues, “We are seizing on a substantial business opportunity with our 3D model making and AR capabilities and believe that the demand for everything 3D will not only continue but accelerate into 2022 and beyond. Nextech’s mission is to build the first vertically integrated artificial intelligence (AI) powered 3D model factory for the Metaverse, and we are well on the path to achieving this ambitious goal. With a successful 2021 now in the rear view mirror, I believe that 2022 will go down in history as the breakout year for everything 3D and a great year of growth for Nextech and our shareholders.”
