Annual recurring revenue of $44.1 million, up 27% year-over-year

Total first quarter revenue of $13.3 million, up 18% year-over-year

GTY Technology Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: GTYH) (“GTY”), a leading vertical SaaS/Cloud solution provider for the public sector, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

“The first quarter was an outstanding start to 2021, primarily driven by robust activity across all of our business segments. We accelerated year-over-year ARR growth to 27% and achieved 18% revenue growth that exceeded guidance,” said TJ Parass, CEO of GTY. “We have great momentum across our business and see strong demand for our products as more and more public sector organizations are pushing to modernize and transform their operations. As we look forward, we believe GTY is well positioned to capitalize on the recovery trend and execute on our growth initiatives.”

First Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total GAAP revenue for the first quarter of 2021 was $13.3 million, up 18% compared to $11.3 million in the first quarter of 2020. Total non-GAAP revenue for the first quarter of 2021 was $13.4 million, up 15% compared to $11.6 million in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Gross Profit: Gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 was $8.5 million, compared to $6.7 million for the first quarter of 2020. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2021 was 64%, compared to 60% for the first quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 was $8.9 million, compared to $7.3 million for the first quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP gross margin was 67% for the first quarter of 2021, compared to 63% for the first quarter of 2020.
  • Operating (Loss): Operating loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $(8.1) million, compared to an operating loss of $(16.5) million in the first quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP operating loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $(1.5) million, compared to an operating loss of $(5.7) million in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Net (Loss): Net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $(18.0) million, or $(0.32) per share, based on 55.8 million weighted average shares outstanding. During the first quarter of 2020, net loss was $(17.4) million, or $(0.33) per share, based on 52.6 million weighted average shares outstanding.

On April 12, 2021, the SEC released guidance regarding the technical accounting for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies. GTY has assessed the impact of this recent guidance and determined it is not material to previously issued financial statements. Accordingly, GTY will revise, rather than restate, its previously issued 2020 quarterly and annual financial statements in GTY’s filings for 2021 on Forms 10-Q and 10-K. The guidance does not impact GTY’s non-GAAP operating metrics for 2019 or 2020, including non-GAAP revenues, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP loss from operations.

Definitions and reconciliations of all non-GAAP financial measures and additional information regarding operating measures are included below in the section titled “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and in the accompanying tables. All comparisons in this press release are year over year unless otherwise provided.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The company’s actual results may differ from its expectations, estimates and projections and, consequently, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Words such as “expect,” “estimate,” “project,” “budget,” “forecast,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “believes,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, the company’s expectations with respect to future performance. These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results. Most of these factors are outside of the company’s control and are difficult to predict. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to: (1) the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, or other public health crises, on our operations, our customers and the economy; (2) the risk that the ongoing integration of the businesses acquired in our business combination disrupts current plans and operations; (3) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the business combination, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of the combined company to grow and manage growth profitably and retain its key employees; (4) our failure to generate sufficient cash flow from our business to make payments on our debt; (5) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (6) the possibility that the company may be adversely affected by other economic, business or competitive factors; and (7) other risks and uncertainties included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We caution you that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive, and readers should not place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. We do not undertake or accept any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in our expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, GTY has provided in this release certain financial measures that have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP defined as “non-GAAP financial measures,” which include (i) non-GAAP revenues, (ii) non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin, (iii) and non-GAAP loss from operations.

GTY’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to the corresponding GAAP measures, in evaluating GTY’s ongoing operational performance and trends. However, it is important to note that particular items GTY excludes from, or includes in, its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the items excluded from, or included in, similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies in the same industry. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to such GAAP financial measures has been provided in the tables included as part of this press release.

Non-GAAP Revenues. Non-GAAP revenues are defined as GAAP revenues adjusted for the impact of purchase accounting resulting from its business combination which reduced its acquired contract liabilities to fair value. The company believes that presenting non-GAAP revenues is useful to investors as it eliminates the impact of the purchase accounting adjustments to revenues to allow for a direct comparison between periods.

Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Non-GAAP Gross Margin. Non-GAAP gross profit is defined as GAAP gross profit adjusted for the impact of purchase accounting resulting its business combination and share-based compensation. Non-GAAP gross margin is defined as non-GAAP gross profit divided by non-GAAP revenues. The company believes that presenting non-GAAP gross profit and margin is useful to investors as it eliminates the impact of the purchase accounting adjustments to allow for a direct comparison between periods.

Non-GAAP Loss From Operations. Non-GAAP loss from operations is defined as GAAP loss from operations adjusted for the impact of purchase accounting to revenues resulting from its business combination, the amortization of acquired intangible assets, share-based compensation, acquisition related costs, goodwill impairment expense, restructuring expenses and the change in fair value of contingent consideration. The company believes that presenting non-GAAP loss from operations is useful to investors as it eliminates the impact of certain non-cash and acquisition related expenses to allow a direct comparison of loss from operations between periods.

Operating Metrics

We define the number of customers as the number of accounts with a unique account identifier for which we have an active contract in the period indicated. New customers have signed a new contract with a GTY entity in the period.

We define ARR as the annualized revenue run-rate of subscription, maintenance or transaction-based agreements from all customers at a point in time. For transaction based CityBase contracts we use the following calculation: For large projects (>$10K per month) with 12 months or more of history we use the trailing 12 months of history. For large projects with less than 12 months, we calculate an annualized value based on history available. For small projects (<$10K per month) we annualize the most recent month’s activity.
