MONTREAL and SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coveo (TSX: CVO), a leading provider of enterprise AI platforms that enable individualized, connected, and trusted digital experiences at scale with semantic search, AI recommendations, and GenAI answering, today announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2024 ended September 30, 2023.

“It continues to be an exciting time for the company,” said Louis Têtu, Chairman and CEO of Coveo. “Since the launch of Coveo Relevance Generative AnsweringTM in the first quarter, we’ve seen promising results from early adopters within our existing customer base, including leading companies like Xero, as we move towards its general availability in December. Interest in our enterprise-grade generative AI offering continues to be high, and we believe we have a tremendous opportunity to capitalize on our proven, trusted, and leading AI platform to deliver significant value to our enterprise customers.”

Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Financial Highlights

  • Coveo and Caleres earned the Best Personalized Shopping Experience award at the 2023 Glossy Fashion Awards. Caleres, a global footwear company, implemented Coveo’s AI platform across its branded websites, enhancing the shopping experience with AI-driven search and personalized product recommendations. This significantly improved product discovery and boosted search-driven revenues, reflecting a focus on modernizing the digital shopping experience.
  • Coveo won the 2023 Cyber Security Award for Most Innovative Digital Experience Cloud-Native AI Platform.

Financial Outlook

The company continues to demonstrate operating efficiency and is improving its guidance on annual Adjusted Operating Loss. While we are encouraged by the overall interest in our AI platform, we observed delays in customer purchasing decisions, and the macroeconomic environment continues to be challenging, with both of these factors impacting new bookings and the related services revenue. Additionally, a portion of the anticipated churn from certain legacy Qubit customers occurred earlier in the year than previously expected.

In light of this, Coveo now anticipates SaaS Subscription Revenue(1), Total Revenue, and Adjusted Operating Loss(2) to be in the following ranges:

Q3 FY’24 Full Year FY’24
SaaS Subscription Revenue(1) $29.1 – $29.6 million $117.0 – $118.0 million
Total Revenue $30.9 – $31.4 million $124.5 – $125.5 million
Adjusted Operating Loss(2) $2.5 – $3.5 million $9.5 – $10.5 million

        
Following two consecutive quarters of positive cash flows from operating activities, the Company is ahead of its previous commitment to achieve positive operating cash flow in its next fiscal year (fiscal 2025).

These guidance ranges, including the timing to achieve positive operating cash flow, are based on several assumptions, including the following, in addition to those set forth under the “Forward-Looking Information” section below:

  • Achieving expected levels of sales of SaaS subscriptions to new and existing customers, including timing of those sales, as well as expected levels of renewals of SaaS subscriptions with existing customers.
  • Achieving expected levels of implementations and other sources of professional services revenue.
  • Maintaining planned levels of operating margin represented by our Adjusted Gross Profit Measures(2) and Adjusted Gross Margin Measures(4).
  • Expected financial performance as measured by our Adjusted Operating Expense Measures(2) and Adjusted Operating Expense (%) Measures(4).
  • Stabilization of ongoing headwinds, including those related to economic and geopolitical factors, impacting sales cycles, pricing, and the ability to generate new business.
  • Our ability to attract and retain key personnel required to achieve our plans.
  • Similar foreign exchange rates, inflation rates, interest rates, customer spending, and other macro-economic conditions.
  • Our financial outlook does not include the impact of acquisitions that may be announced or closed from time to time.

Non-IFRS Measures and Ratios

Coveo’s unaudited condensed interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. The information presented in this press release includes non-IFRS financial measures and ratios, namely (i) Adjusted Operating Loss; (ii) Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Product Gross Profit, and Adjusted Professional Services Gross Profit (collectively referred to as our “Adjusted Gross Profit Measures”); (iii) Adjusted Gross Margin, Adjusted Product Gross Margin, and Adjusted Professional Services Gross Margin (collectively referred to as our “Adjusted Gross Margin Measures”); (iv) Adjusted Sales and Marketing Expenses, Adjusted Research and Product Development Expenses, and Adjusted General and Administrative Expenses (collectively referred to as our “Adjusted Operating Expense Measures”); and (v) Adjusted Sales and Marketing Expenses (%), Adjusted Research and Product Development Expenses (%), and Adjusted General and Administrative Expenses (%) (collectively referred to as our “Adjusted Operating Expense (%) Measures”). These measures and ratios are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures and ratios are provided as additional information to complement IFRS measures by providing further understanding of the company’s results of operations from management’s perspective.

Accordingly, these measures and ratios should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of the company’s financial information reported under IFRS. Adjusted Operating Loss, the Adjusted Gross Profit Measures, the Adjusted Gross Margin Measures, the Adjusted Operating Expense Measures, and the Adjusted Operating Expense (%) Measures are used to provide investors with supplemental measures and ratios of the company’s operating performance and thus highlight trends in Coveo’s core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures and ratios. The company’s management also believes that securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures and ratios in the evaluation of issuers. Coveo’s management uses and intends to continue to use non-IFRS measures and ratios in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, and to prepare annual operating budgets and forecasts.         

See the “Non-IFRS Measures” section of our latest MD&A, which is available under our profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca for a description of these measures. Please refer to the financial tables appended to this press release for a description of such measures and a reconciliation of (i) Adjusted Operating Loss to operating loss; (ii) Adjusted Gross Profit to gross profit; (iii) Adjusted Product Gross Profit to product gross profit; (iv) Adjusted Professional Services Gross Profit to professional services gross profit; (v) Adjusted Sales and Marketing Expenses to sales and marketing expenses; (vi) Adjusted Research and Product Development Expenses to research and product development expenses; and (vii) Adjusted General and Administrative Expenses to general and administrative expenses.

Key Performance Indicators

This press release refers to “SaaS Subscription Revenue” and “Net Expansion Rate”, which are operating metrics used in Coveo’s industry. We monitor such key performance indicators to help us evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends, formulate business plans, and make strategic decisions. These key performance indicators provide investors with supplemental measures of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures. We also believe that securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties frequently use industry metrics in the evaluation of issuers. Our key performance indicators may be calculated in a manner different than similar key performance indicators used by other companies.

“SaaS Subscription Revenue” means Coveo’s SaaS subscription revenue, as presented in our financial statements in accordance with IFRS.

“Net Expansion Rate” is calculated by considering a cohort of customers at the end of the period 12 months prior to the end of the period selected and dividing the SaaS Annualized Contract Value (as defined below) attributable to that cohort at the end of the current period selected, by the SaaS Annualized Contract Value attributable to that cohort at the beginning of the period 12 months prior to the end of the period selected. Expressed as a percentage, the ratio (i) excludes any SaaS Annualized Contract Value from new customers added during the 12 months preceding the end of the period selected; (ii) includes incremental SaaS Annualized Contract Value made to the cohort over the 12 months preceding the end of the period selected; and (iii) is net of the SaaS Annualized Contract Value from any customers whose subscriptions terminated or decreased over the 12 months preceding the end of the period selected.

“SaaS Annualized Contract Value” means the SaaS annualized contract value of a customer’s commitments calculated based on the terms of that customer’s subscriptions, and represents the committed annualized subscription amount as of the measurement date.

Please also refer to the “Key Performance Indicators” section of our latest MD&A, which is available under our profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca, for additional details on the abovementioned key performance indicators.
