CALABASAS, Calif., September 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NETSOL Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTWK), a global business services and enterprise application solutions provider, reported results for the fiscal fourth quarter and full year ended June 30, 2022.


Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2022 and Recent Operational Highlights


  NETSOL signed a contract with a notable Swedish bank to implement NFS Ascent® in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland with an estimated value of $5 million over the five-year contract period.
  NETSOL was awarded a contract by the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa under the World Bank Funded “Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Revenue Mobilization and Public Resource Management Program” to provide a document management system. The contract is valued at approximately $2.2 million.
  We successfully went live with our cloud-based NFS Ascent® Retail Platform for a bank in the United Kingdom. The Retail Platform constitutes both NFS Ascent® Omni Point of Sale and NFS Ascent® Contract Management System. This contract will provide additional subscription fees of approximately $1 million over the coming 5 years.
  We went live with NFS Ascent® and NFS Ascent® Digital in New Zealand for a leading Japanese equipment manufacturer and in addition signed a statement of work which will generate approximately $1 million.
  We onboarded another 7 dealers of a leading German Auto Manufacturer in the U.S. on our digital retailing solution OtozTM bringing the total to 24 at June 30, 2022.





Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2022 Financial Results


Total net revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 were $13.5 million, compared with $15.4 million in the prior year period. The decrease in total net revenues was primarily driven by decreases in license revenue of $0.6 million and services revenue of $1.7 million, offset by an increase in subscription and support revenue of $0.5 million.


  Total license fees were $0.95 million, compared with $1.5 million in the prior year period.
  Total subscription (SaaS and Cloud) and support revenues were $6.1 million, compared with $5.6 million in the prior year period.
  Total services revenues were $6.5 million, compared with $8.2 million in the prior year period.


Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $4.8 million (or 36% of net revenues), compared to $7.5 million (or 49% of net revenues) in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to a decrease in revenues of $1.8 million and an increase in cost of sales of $0.9 million driven by increases in salaries and consulting costs of $0.7 million.


Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 were $6.4 million (or 47% of sales), compared to $6.4 million (or 41% of sales) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. Operating expenses remained flat as the increase in research and development costs of $0.3 million was offset by the decrease in salaries and wages of $0.3 million.


GAAP net loss attributable to NETSOL for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 totaled $2.2 million or $0.19 per diluted share, compared with GAAP net income of $1.9 million or $0.17 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021.


Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 totaled $(1.4) million or $0.12 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $2.9 million or $0.26 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 (see note regarding “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” below for further discussion of this non-GAAP measure).


At June 30, 2022, cash and cash equivalents were $24 million, a decrease from $33.7 million at June 30, 2021.


Management Commentary


“We returned to revenue growth for fiscal 2022 increasing 4.2% after two years of revenue decline in fiscal years 2020 and 2021,” said NETSOL Co-Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Najeeb Ghauri. “We believe we have robust traction in the current pipeline for fiscal 2023 as we aim for double digit revenue growth. Our pipeline in the North American market is healthy and strong. We are working on potential projects for both multinational and US based major Tier 1 captive finance companies. Our Flagship NFS Ascent offering is in a strong position as we are gaining momentum both for SaaS and license offerings. Additionally, we have a robust pipeline in the European markets as our team in the UK are working diligently to secure new customers in the retail sector. We have also signed up a few more Otoz digital platforms through MINI Anywhere across the US to a total of 30 dealerships to date.”





Company CFO Roger Almond added: “Our subscription and support segment were a key growth driver during the year. As our workforce continues to return to the office across our global footprint, we expect growth will accelerate in the quarters ahead, which will require a related increase in expenses to support our increased business activity moving forward. Our cash position remains strong, providing the resources to support our core business growth as well as strategic investments in high-return, long-term opportunities, such as the promising work of the Otoz Innovation Lab.”
