Growth of SaaS revenues and Professional Services, plus the launch of a new platform extension to support sales and marketing teams with personalized video all contribute to a rise in gross profits.
TORONTO, Dec. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BlueRush Inc. ("BlueRush" or the "Company") (TSXV:BTV; OTCQB:BTVRF), a leading personalized video Software as a Service ("SaaS") company, today announced its financial results for the three months and year ended July 31, 2022, which were marked by strong growth and impressive margins. The Company's financial statements and full Management's Discussion and Analysis for the three months and year ended July 31, 2022 is available under the Company's profile on SEDAR (www.sedar.com),
“In 2022 we saw growth in every area of the business, against a backdrop of cost reductions in the latter part of the year which we expect to carry over into 2023. Fiscal 2022 was also a transitional year for BlueRush, as we developed an extension to our SaaS IndiVideo platform. This allows us to expand our target market to include smaller companies and we anticipate will help shorten our sales cycles,” said Steve Taylor, CEO of BlueRush.
Financial highlights for year ended July 31, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021 include 91.4% SaaS gross margin. Other noteworthy financials results:
29.8% increase in overall revenue, with $4,769,242 in 2022, up from $3,675,108 in 2021
58.6% increase in gross profit, with $3,534,366 in 2022 up from $2,228,372 in 2021
15.4% growth of SaaS revenue, with $2,330,737 in 2022, up from $2,018,934 in 2021
13.1% increase in Committed Annual Recurring Revenues (CARR) of $3,011,841 in 2022, up from $2,675,556 in 2021
R&D investments were focused primarily on completing the “IndiVideo for Sales” product, which provides sales and marketing teams the ability to integrate personalized videos into their sales and marketing sequences. “We expect to see the full impact of IndiVideo for Sales in 2023, most likely in the 2nd quarter as we really just began taking it to market in Q1 2023. This product extension allows us to sell out of the box without the need to develop videos, which leads to a much faster sales cycle and opens up a significantly larger market for us. This is an exciting period of transition for BlueRush and IndiVideo,” continued Steve Taylor.
Radek Costa-Sarnicki, CFO of BlueRush, stated “I am very happy to join the BlueRush team and I look forward to being a valuable partner and participant in this exciting journey. The financing obtained in first quarter of 2023 gives us the working capital necessary to grow the business and to work toward our goal to achieve breakeven cash flow in as short a timeframe as possible.”
Subsequent to the year ended July 31, 2022, the Company completed a substantial capital raise totaling gross proceeds of US$3,023,995, despite challenging market conditions, along with a loan from BDC of CAD$2,000,000. These financings will facilitate ongoing innovation and growth of the Company.
