Management Commentary

“Through the recently completed fiscal year, we experienced improvement in operations topped off by a strong fourth quarter,” said David Karp, CEO. “Our operating performance improved by $4.4 million over the year due to revenue growth and reduced costs. I am proud of how our team responded this year, adjusting to challenging circumstances while continuing to grow revenue. The fourth quarter resulted in the highest quarterly billings level in the Company’s history, driven by strong demand for our products to enable remote working. We achieved record recurring revenue of $6.3 million during the year, which will better position the Company for the future. We also announced a partnership to equip Honeywell handheld devices in various vertical markets, including health care, manufacturing, retail, and transportation with our unified communications applications. While we expect to carry forward momentum gained from the recent fourth quarter, we see our business settling and there continues to be uncertainty with respect to the outlook given the disruption to the economy that COVID-19 has caused.”

“In fiscal 2021, we expect to continue to benefit from the acceleration of the work at home movement. According to Nemertes Research[1], 71% of U.S. businesses are likely to continue to support work at home programs after the pandemic.  Our focus in fiscal 2021 will be to continue growing our recurring revenue business. We will increase recurring revenue through the sale of Bria Solo, Bria Teams, and Bria Enterprise subscription offerings through our e-store, direct sales team, and channel partners. We will also focus on high-value vertical markets like call center, healthcare and retail where we can differentiate our solution through interoperability, configurability and security,” continued Karp.

Fiscal 2020 and Recent Business Highlights

  • Launched Bria Solo replacing X-Lite on December 10, 2019 to further support recurring revenue and marketing objectives.
  • Announced Honeywell’s selection of CounterPath to provide UC solutions targeted for the Handheld market on January 9, 2020.
  • A Vodafone agreement of a five-year deal to provide Bria mobile application and services to subscribers in Fiji is announced on February 13, 2020.
  • On March 3, 2020, the Company announced it will provide free meeting room capabilities for Bria Teams and Bria Solo users to support the emerging COVID-19 pandemic work from home movement.
  • On March 16, 2020, the Company announced a partnership with Halo Health, targeting the healthcare vertical.
  • On June 11, 2020, the Company announced the completion of a $1.0 million private placement at $3.51 per common share.
  • On June 16, 2020, we received a letter from NASDAQ wherein, based on our current report on Form 8-K dated June 11, 2020 relating to the private placement, NASDAQ determined that we comply with the NASDAQ listing rule 5550(b)(1).
