Selected by the government of Colombia to create authoritative elevation data for its national mapping agency
DENVER, CO - Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP) (OTCQX: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in geospatial intelligence solutions, today announced first quarter financial results.
For the quarter ending March 31, 2021, the Company reported revenue of $0.9 million, compared with $0.9 million last quarter, and $1.6 million for the first quarter of 2020. Intermap did not realize material government revenue during the quarter, which has been the case since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the Company has experienced continued delays in government-related meetings, communication and contracting, activity is improving and the Company will begin to recognize revenue related to its work with Colombia’s national mapping agency, the Instituto Geográfico Agustín Codazzi (“IGAC”). In addition, the Company recognized a modest increase in subscription-based revenue.
On April 27, 2021, the Company completed a private placement raising $0.4 million. Loss per share for the quarter improved to $0.04 from $0.10 for the same period last year, reflecting a reduction of debt and greater capital efficiency.
The Company’s consolidated financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, along with management’s discussion and analysis for the corresponding period and related management certifications, are filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
National Mapping Initiative in Colombia
Working in partnership with Grupo GeoSpatial S.A.S. (“GeoSpatial”), Intermap is proud to support Colombia’s national mapping program and to announce the successful acceptance of high-resolution NEXTMap® Digital Terrain Models covering 62 high-priority municipalities. The contract area comprised mountainous rainforest regions around the country, which is challenging topography because of the difficulty measuring ground beneath trees and on high-slope areas. IGAC will use the new high-resolution DTM to support the national government’s management of natural resources, especially water and forestry. In addition to elevation data, hydrology vectors were delivered in the local geodetic reference frame and all data meet the rigorous technical specifications issued in IGAC’s recent Technical Resolutions of 2020.
“Intermap’s NEXTMap DTM data provides unique value to Colombia’s national spatial data infrastructure, enabling the characterization of terrain, enhanced hydrological modeling, and risk management,” said William Aymard, GeoSpatial’s Vice President.
“The multipurpose cadastre program is an opportunity to solve numerous problems related to land management, and a critical planning and information tool to promote the organization, productive use, and the proper governance of the nation’s territory,” said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap’s Chairman and CEO. “We are proud to be a part of the solution and look forward to future opportunities in Colombia and around the world.”
