For the second quarter of 2018, VirtualArmour expects total revenue of $4.0 million, an increase of 50% compared to the second quarter of 2017. Managed and professional services revenue is expected to total $1.2 million, up 94% compared to the second quarter of 2017.
For the first half of 2018, VirtualArmour expects total revenue of $7.3 million, an increase of 25% compared to the first half of 2017. Managed and professional services revenue in the first half of 2018 is expected to total $2.3 million, up 118% versus the first half of 2017.
“Our preliminary results indicate strong top-line growth across the board during the second quarter,” said VirtualArmour CEO Russ Armbrust. “Managed and professional services were up 94% for the quarter and up 118% over the first six months, reflecting substantial growth in this higher margin segment of our business.”
“We achieved these numbers through a combination of signing several multi-year recurring revenue engagements along with increasing the level of our services utilized by our existing customers,” continued Armbrust. “Our latest customer additions were from multiple sectors, including healthcare, transportation, hospitality, and non-profit.”
The $1.1 million in new contracts VirtualArmour signed during the quarter involved managed and professional services combined with hardware and software. The company was engaged by a prominent wellness brand customer in partnership with Alacrinet, as well as began advancing an expansion into the hospitality and manufacturing sectors. The company maintained a 100% customer retention rate, which has now continued over the last six quarters.
“We believe our industry-leading customer retention rate reflects our ongoing focus on prevention, proactive communication and investment in the best technology and personnel,” added Armbrust. “Combining this with our growth in customer acquisition and an increasing number of customers on our recurring revenue model, we are well on track for another record year of financial and operational performance.”
These preliminary results are subject to completion of the company’s customary quarterly review process and are subject to change. VirtualArmour plans to issue its full quarterly results and file with SEDAR before the end of August 2018 as required by Canadian reporting companies.
