ProntoForms Reports Q3 2019 Financial Results

Achieves 26% growth in recurring revenue over Q3 2018

OTTAWA, Nov. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ProntoForms Corporation (TSXV: PFM), the global leader in field-focused low-code application platforms for enterprise, announced today its third quarter (Q3) financial results for the period ended September 30, 2019.

“We are pleased to report that our Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) base grew 30% year-to-year to reach $15.03 million by September 30, 2019. Recurring revenue continued to grow reaching $3.5 million in Q3, representing a 6% increase over Q2 2019 and 26% over Q3 2018. Our accelerating growth continues to be driven by enterprise expansion; accounts with more than $100K of ARR now represent 35% of our base, up from 24% a year ago,” said Alvaro Pombo, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of ProntoForms.

Mr. Pombo continued, “Enterprise demand for field automation is a powerful trend propelling our growth. In the opinion of leading IT analysts, enterprises can no longer rely on traditional software development practices to equip employees with the apps they require. ProntoForms low-code app development platform addresses this need. It works seamlessly with other leading systems and systems of record, and empowers enterprise field operations to develop and manage new apps—quickly and at scale—from an IT-approved platform.”
