CXENSE ASA ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER RESULTS - Q2 2016

OSLO, NORWAY - AUGUST 26, 2016 - CXENSE ASA TODAY REPORTED FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR THE SECOND QUARTER, WHICH ENDED JUNE 30, 2016.

Highlights:

- Q2 2016 revenues of USD 6.3 million, up 79% vs. Q2 2015, and New Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR) closed in Q2 2016 of USD 2.6 million – 59% above the average of the last three quarters.

- Strong new customer wins such as Aller Media AS and Japanese fashion retailer Nissen Co. Ltd, and significant upsell to existing client The Wall Street Journal.

- Q2 2016 lost ARR (churn) was USD 1.4 million, due to higher than expected churn on legacy Maxifier software. Churn is expected to normalize in the following quarters.

- Q2 2016 EBITDA of USD -1.3 million, a significant improvement from USD -3.1 million in Q2 2015.

- Three new leading investors, Aker ASA, Charles Street International and Ferd AS, invested USD 19 million in new equity, enabling Cxense to faster pursue organic and acquired growth.

- Accelerated sales growth is expected to move the EBITDA break-even point beyond 2016.

- Cxense transferred to the Oslo Børs’ main list from Oslo Axess on 12 August 2016.

“Cxense experiences increasing demand for its leading personalization and data management software and we successfully signed new customers and increased our engagement with existing ones in Q2 2016. Churn affecting ad solutions was disappointing, but is expected to move down in coming quarters. We have successfully strengthened our financial position, shareholder base and investor reach by raising new equity and listing on the Oslo Børs. We are now in position to invest in growth and take Cxense to the next level.”, says Ståle Bjørnstad, CEO of Cxense ASA
