COVID-19 delayed but did not cancel aviation projects
Government pipeline is robust and will support future revenue
Software subscriptions renewed at higher prices for additional services
DENVER, CO - Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP; OTCQX: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in geospatial intelligence solutions, today filed its audited annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, the annual management discussion and analysis for the corresponding period, related management certifications of annual filings and its annual information form. The documents are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Consolidated revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 totaled $4.7 million, compared to $10.1 million for 2019, reflecting the disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic. The decline was expected and due entirely to delayed government contracts given the economic environment resulting from the pandemic. Approximately 71% of consolidated revenue was generated outside the United States, compared to 41% for 2019.
Net income improved from a loss of $4.8 million to income of $26.6 million for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, due to the gain on the modification of debt of $32.1 million, offset by the reduction in revenue discussed above.
In a year that was filled with global business disruption, Intermap achieved significant milestones necessary to grow the business. With the elimination of $33.9 million notes payable and the rebuilding of the government pipeline, the Company is well-positioned for growth. Intermap also welcomed sophisticated investors through fully subscribed issuer private placements while maintaining the value of its tax assets.
Software-based subscription revenue grew 4% during 2020, a year in which the insurance industry was especially challenged by COVID-19. At the same time, Intermap was successful in extending all customer contracts that were up for renewal during the year. The Company’s software customers are renewing their subscriptions at higher rates, adding new services to their accounts and expanding the geographies and business lines where they’re doing business with Intermap.
Intermap’s acquisition services revenue was significantly affected by the onset of COVID-19. As various U.S. government agencies and contracting vehicles are primary users of Intermap’s data and services, COVID-19 created new gaps in the previous three-year sales cycle.
In fiscal 2021, business is recovering and the pipeline of high-probability opportunities has grown 429%, compared with December 31, 2019. 44% of these opportunities represent repeat customers. Despite the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the pipeline is expected to support revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth in 2021 compared with the amounts achieved in 2020.
