(1) Includes Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year, total software license revenue decreased in all geographic regions.

The Canadian region (representing 23% of year-to-date total software license revenue) experienced slight decreases of 2% and 4% in annuity/maintenance license revenue during the three and six months ended September 30, 2021, due to the combined effect of a couple of non-renewals and reduced licensing by existing customers, partially offset by increases in licensing by some other customers.

The United States (representing 24% of year-to-date total software license revenue) experienced decreases of 15% and 23% in annuity/maintenance license revenue during the three and six months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the same periods of the previous fiscal year. The decrease was largely due to the same factors that affected the region’s revenue in the previous fiscal year: consolidation in the industry and reduced licensing due to ongoing challenges experienced by US unconventional shale plays. Perpetual sales were up compared to the previous fiscal year.

South America (representing 12% of year-to-date total software license revenue) experienced an increase of 7% in annuity/maintenance license revenue during the three and six months ended September 30, 2021, primarily due to a new multi-year lease that includes CoFlow.

The Eastern Hemisphere (representing 41% of year-to-date total software license revenue) experienced decreases of 7% and 12% in annuity/maintenance license revenue during the three and six months ended September 30, 2021, due to reduced licensing by some customers. Perpetual revenue during the three and six months ended September 30, 2021 was comparable to the same periods of the previous fiscal year.

CMG’s deferred revenue consists primarily of amounts for prepaid licenses. Our annuity/maintenance revenue is deferred and recognized ratably over the license period, which is generally one year or less. Amounts are deferred for licenses that have been provided and revenue recognition reflects the passage of time.

The above table illustrates the normal trend in the deferred revenue balance from the beginning of the calendar year (which corresponds with Q4 of our fiscal year), when most renewals occur, to the end of the calendar year (which corresponds with Q3 of our fiscal year). Our fourth quarter corresponds with the beginning of the fiscal year for most oil and gas companies, representing a time when they enter a new budget year and sign/renew their contracts.

The deferred revenue balance at the end of Q2 of fiscal 2022 increased by 9% compared to Q2 of fiscal 2021 and was positively affected by early renewals.

Effective July 1, 2021, CMG revised staff compensation, resulting in partial reinstatements of staff salaries that had been reduced since July 1, 2020. At the end of the second quarter, CMG restructured its Calgary office, incurring a one-time restructuring cost of $0.9 million before tax. The restructuring, net of salary reinstatements, is expected to result in annual savings of approximately $0.2 million before tax.

Direct employee costs for the three months ended September 30, 2021 increased by $2.9 million, compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year. The increase was due mainly to the fact that the comparative quarter included CEWS benefits of $2.5 million (no CEWS benefits in the current quarter) and the current quarter included the aforementioned $0.9 million one-time restructuring cost, partially offset by lower stock-based compensation expense as a result of the share price decrease during the current quarter. Adjusted for the CEWS and the restructuring charge, direct employee expenses decreased by $0.5 million, or 6%.

Direct employee costs for the six months ended September 30, 2021 increased by $1.0 million, compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year. The increase was due mainly to the lower CEWS benefits, the $0.9 million one-time restructuring cost, partially offset by lower stock-based compensation expense, salary reductions implemented on July 1, 2020 and lower headcount. Adjusted for the CEWS and the restructuring charge, direct employee expenses decreased by $2.1 million, or 12%.

Other corporate costs for the three months ended September 30, 2021 decreased by 15%, compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year, mainly due to higher SR&ED credits, as explained in the next section. Other corporate costs for the six months ended September 30, 2021 decreased by 14%, compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year, due to a refund of office operating costs, the CERS benefit received during the first quarter of the current year and higher SR&ED credits.

Outlook

During the three and six months ended September 30, 2021, CMG’s annuity/maintenance license revenue decreased by 6% and 11%, compared to the same periods of the previous fiscal year. While commodity prices have improved in calendar 2021, annual spending budgets were set by our customers at the end of calendar 2020, in the midst of COVID-related cautions and uncertainties, so any positive effects on CMG’s revenue may be lagged because of the annual nature of our customers’ budgets.

Geographically, Canada, the US and the Eastern Hemisphere experienced decreases during the quarter and year to date, compared to the same periods of the previous fiscal year, as license reductions that occurred at the beginning of calendar 2021 continue to negatively affect revenue comparison with the prior year.

South American annuity/maintenance revenue increased by 7% during the quarter and year to date, the main contributor to the increase being a multi-year agreement with Petroleo Brasileiro S.A that includes commercial use of CoFlow. We are excited to focus on commercial deployments with now both of the original partners of the CoFlow project. Subsequent to quarter-end, we closed another deal with a South American customer for commercial licensing of CoFlow.

In September 2021, CMG and Shell agreed that CMG will add and/or allocate up to six additional full-time employees in order to accelerate CoFlow development and support targeted CoFlow deployments. Shell’s contribution will increase accordingly.

At the end of the second quarter, CMG restructured its Calgary office, incurring a one-time restructuring cost of $0.9 million before tax. Effective July 1, 2021, CMG revised staff compensation, resulting in partial reinstatements of staff salaries that had been reduced since July 1, 2020. The restructuring, net of salary reinstatements, is expected to result in annual savings of approximately $0.2 million before tax. Directors’ cash compensation reductions and officers’ salary reductions implemented on July 1, 2020 will remain unchanged for the current fiscal year. Our goal is to continue to defend our margins, while making sure we deliver reliable and accurate reservoir simulation solutions to our customers.

Adjusted for the restructuring charge in the current quarter and the CEWS benefit included in the prior year quarter, total operating expenses decreased by 6%, compared to the prior year quarter, mainly due to lower stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted for the restructuring charge and the CEWS/CERS benefits, year-to-date total operating expenses decreased by 12%, due to lower stock-based compensation expense, salary reductions and lower headcount. For more than one fiscal year now, discretionary expenses like travel, tradeshows and customer engagement have been reduced due to pandemic-related restrictions.

Adjusted for the restructuring charge and the CEWS/CERS benefits, operating profit margin was 39% and 38%, in line with the pre-COVID fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2020 historic average of 40% and reflective of our effective cost management.

We continue to maintain a strong financial position. We closed the quarter with $48.0 million of cash, no debt and no significant accounts receivable collectability concerns. Basic earnings per share were $0.05 for the quarter and $0.10 for the year to date. During the quarter and year to date, we generated free cash flow of $0.06 and $0.11 per share, respectively. During the three months ended September 30, 2021, we declared and paid dividends totaling $0.05 per share.

Energy transition-related modelling (carbon capture/sequestration and EOR, hydrogen, geothermal and other processes/mechanisms) has been a bright spot for CMG for the past year and a half. The current macro focus on energy transition has generated increased interest in our related training courses and has also created a number of opportunities that CMG has been able to capture or pursue. CMG’s existing software has had the technical capabilities to support energy transition-related modelling for, in some instances, decades, and we believe that CMG is the experienced, go-to partner for all of our existing customers, as well as new entrants that are focused on this area. During the current quarter, we continued to add new software and consulting contracts for energy transition and CO2-related work.

Although our results are impacted by the ongoing headwinds associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing recovery in both oil and gas demand and commodity prices. As market sentiment improves and our customers adapt to operating in volatile market conditions, we are focused on returning to growth by working with our customers in their upcoming annual budget cycles to provide them with needed solutions. As the market focuses on energy transition, capital discipline, operational efficiencies and debt reduction, CMG will be responsive and proactive to our customers’ needs and will support them in improving the value of their assets by optimizing production and realizing operational cost efficiencies.

For further details on the results, please refer to CMG's Management Discussion and Analysis and Consolidated Financial Statements, which are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or on CMG's website at www.cmgl.ca.

Additional IFRS Measure

Funds flow from operations is an additional IFRS measure that the Company presents in its consolidated statements of cash flows. Funds flow from operations is calculated as cash flows provided by operating activities adjusted for changes in non-cash working capital. Management believes that this measure provides useful supplemental information about operating performance and liquidity, as it represents cash generated during the period, regardless of the timing of collection of receivables and payment of payables, which may reduce comparability between periods.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

Certain financial measures in this press release – namely, direct employee costs, other corporate costs, EBITDA and free cash flow – do not have a standard meaning prescribed by IFRS and, accordingly, may not be comparable to measures used by other companies. Management believes that these indicators nevertheless provide useful measures in evaluating the Company’s performance.

Direct employee costs include salaries, bonuses, stock-based compensation, benefits, commission expenses, and professional development. Other corporate costs include facility-related expenses, corporate reporting, professional services, marketing and promotion, computer expenses, travel, and other office-related expenses. Direct employee costs and other corporate costs should not be considered an alternative to total operating expenses as determined in accordance with IFRS. People-related costs represent the Company’s largest area of expenditure; hence, management considers highlighting separately corporate and direct employee costs to be important in evaluating the quantitative impact of cost management of these two major expenditure pools. See “Expenses” heading for a reconciliation of direct employee costs and other corporate costs to total operating expenses.

EBITDA refers to net income before adjusting for depreciation expense, finance income, finance costs, and income and other taxes. EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income as determined by IFRS. The Company believes that EBITDA is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company’s main business activities prior to consideration of how those activities are amortized, financed or taxed.

Free cash flow is a non-IFRS financial measure that is calculated as funds flow from operations less capital expenditures and repayment of lease liabilities. Free cash flow per share is calculated by dividing free cash flow by the number of weighted average outstanding shares during the period. Management uses free cash flow and free cash flow per share to help measure the capacity of the Company to pay dividends and invest in business growth opportunities.

Forward-Looking Information

Certain information included in this press release is forward-looking. Forward-looking information includes statements that are not statements of historical fact and which address activities, events or developments that the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, including such things as investment objectives and strategy, the development plans and status of the Company’s software development projects, the Company’s intentions, results of operations, levels of activity, future capital and other expenditures (including the amount, nature and sources of funding thereof), business prospects and opportunities, research and development timetable, and future growth and performance. When used in this press release, statements to the effect that the Company or its management “believes”, “expects”, “expected”, “plans”, “may”, “will”, “projects”, “anticipates”, “estimates”, “would”, “could”, “should”, “endeavours”, “seeks”, “predicts” or “intends” or similar statements, including “potential”, “opportunity”, “target” or other variations thereof that are not statements of historical fact should be construed as forward-looking information. These statements reflect management’s current beliefs with respect to future events and are based on information currently available to management of the Company. The Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking information are reasonable, but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking information should not be unduly relied upon.
