Together with a robust backlog of Property Tax appeals and a growing pipeline of opportunities as our revamped go-to-market programs begin to take effect, we feel confident about a strong second half of the year.”

Q2 2021 Review

On a consolidated basis, revenues were $173.5 million, up 11.6% year-over-year (16.5% on a constant currency basis) and Adjusted EBITDA was $42.2 million, up 21.0% (26.2% on a constant currency basis). Organic revenue growth was 6.0% (10.9% on a constant currency basis) and organic Adjusted EBITDA growth was 22.6% (27.7% on a constant currency basis). Adjusted EPS was $0.75, compared to $0.62 in the second quarter of 2020.

Consolidated profit from continuing operations, in accordance with IFRS, was $16.3 million, up 44.2% from $11.3 million in the same period in 2020. In addition to the higher Adjusted EBITDA performance, profit from continuing operations increased as a result of lower amortization of some historical acquisition-related intangibles and lower restructuring costs related to the Company’s 2020 global restructuring program, offset by acquisition and related costs for the April 1, 2021 acquisition of Finance Active SAS (“Finance Active”) and the May 4, 2021 acquisition of StratoDem Analytics, LLC (“StratoDem Analytics”), costs related to the June 13, 2021 cybersecurity incident, and higher income taxes on higher profit before tax. Profit from continuing operations was $0.40 per share, basic and $0.39 per share, diluted, compared to $0.28 per share, basic and diluted, in the same period in 2020.

Altus Analytics revenues increased by 15.7% to $59.3 million (25.8% on a constant currency basis). Organic revenues were down 0.3%, however up 9.8% on a constant currency basis. The acquisitions of Finance Active and StratoDem Analytics represented 16.0% of revenue growth. Over Time revenues were $50.1 million, up 17.2% (26.6% on a constant currency basis). Adjusted EBITDA was $8.9 million, up 9.5% (24.2% on a constant currency basis), of which organic growth was 5.9% (20.6% on a constant currency basis).

  • The healthy growth in Over Time revenues benefitted from the acquisition of Finance Active, as well as higher subscription revenue from software and data solutions, and steady performance from Appraisal Management solutions. Sequentially, Over Time revenues grew 17.1% (19.7% on a constant currency basis) from $42.8 million in the first quarter of 2021 driven primarily by the acquisition of Finance Active. On an organic basis, sequential Over Time revenues were down 1.2% but up 1.4% on a constant currency basis driven by higher subscription revenues.  
  • In addition to the Over Time revenue growth, total revenue growth in the second quarter also benefitted from increased year-over-year revenues from a rebound in software consulting services.  
  • Bookings in the second quarter increased by 72.3% year-over-year from $12.8 million to $22.1 million (88.7% on a constant currency basis). Organic growth in Bookings was 63.4% (79.7% on a constant currency basis).  
  • The transition of ARGUS Enterprise (“AE”) to cloud subscriptions progressed at a healthy pace throughout the second quarter with continued momentum in migrating existing customers from the on-premise product and selling cloud-enabled AE to new customers. As at the end of the second quarter, 26% of Company’s total AE user base had been contracted on ARGUS Cloud, compared to 22% at the end of first quarter, 14% at the end of 2020, and 8% at the end of the second quarter of 2020.  
  • Adjusted EBITDA improved on higher revenues, however was impacted by the purchase price accounting adjustment of $1.4 million to Finance Active’s deferred revenues as well as higher investment related to accelerating the Company’s data strategy. The purchase price accounting adjustment had a 2% impact to Adjusted EBITDA margin.

CRE Consulting revenues were $114.3 million, up 9.6% (12.0% on a constant currency basis) and Adjusted EBITDA was $42.4 million, up 24.8% (26.9% on a constant currency basis), driven by record performance at Property Tax.

  • Property Tax revenues were $86.7 million, up 12.8% (16.2% on a constant currency basis) and Adjusted EBITDA was $39.7 million, up 27.0% (29.3% on a constant currency basis). Property Tax performance benefitted from double-digit revenue growth in the U.K. and single-digit revenue growth in the U.S., partly offset by a revenue decline in Canada. The cyclical/seasonal annuity billing in the U.K. was a significant contributor, representing $25.7 million in revenues (compared to $15.0 million in the second quarter of 2020), the increase reflecting the higher cumulative number of the 2017 cycle cases settled. While strong, the U.K. annuity billing was impacted by a COVID‐19 government subsidy program which provides a temporary tax relief for companies in the retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors. The U.S. operations benefitted from increased seasonal case settlements in Texas, as well as a catch up on COVID-19 related delays from prior quarters. In Canada, revenues were impacted by timing of Ontario settlements (some of which were pulled forward into the first quarter), as well as lower year‐over‐year comparative performance in Montreal and Manitoba which were more favourably positioned in their cycles in the prior year, partly offset by a significant multi-year case settlement in Saskatchewan.  
  • Valuation and Cost Advisory revenues were $27.6 million, up 0.7% (1.2% on a constant currency basis) and Adjusted EBITDA was $2.7 million, up 0.3% (1.5% on a constant currency basis). Revenues improved on higher underlying activity levels, however the cybersecurity incident in the quarter impacted revenues by approximately $1.6 million.

Corporate Costs were $9.1 million, compared to $7.2 million (restated to reflect accrued variable compensation costs within the respective business units) in the same period in 2020. Corporate costs increased primarily due to higher consulting fees for professional advisory.

Altus Group’s balance sheet remains healthy, reinforcing the Company’s financial flexibility to pursue its growth strategy. At the end of the first quarter, bank debt stood at $248.8 million, representing a funded debt to EBITDA leverage ratio of 2.03 times (well below its maximum limit of 4.00 times) and cash and cash equivalents was $74.1 million.

Non-IFRS Measures and Altus Analytics Selected Metrics Definitions

Altus Group uses certain non-IFRS measures as indicators of financial performance. Readers are cautioned that they are not defined performance measures, and do not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and may differ from similar computations as reported by other similar entities and, accordingly, may not be comparable to financial measures as reported by those entities. The Company believes that these measures are useful supplemental measures that may assist investors in assessing an investment in its shares and provide more insight into its performance. These non-IFRS measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS.

  • Adjusted EBITDA (Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization), represents profit (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, adjusted for the effects of: occupancy costs calculated on a similar basis prior to the adoption of IFRS 16, finance costs (income), net - other, depreciation of property, plant and equipment and amortization of intangibles, depreciation of right-of-use assets, finance costs (income), net – leases, acquisition and related transition costs (income), unrealized foreign exchange (gains) losses, (gains) losses on disposal of right-of-use assets, property, plant and equipment and intangibles, share of (profit) loss of joint venture, impairment charges, non-cash share-based compensation costs, (gains) losses on equity derivatives net of mark-to-market adjustments on related restricted share units (“RSUs”) and deferred share units (“DSUs”) being hedged, (gains) losses on derivatives, restructuring costs (recovery), (gains) losses on investments, (gains) losses on hedging transactions, and other costs or income of a non-operating and/or non-recurring nature. Adjusted EBITDA margin represents the percentage factor of Adjusted EBITDA to revenues.
  • Adjusted EPS (Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share), represents basic earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations adjusted for the effects of: occupancy costs calculated on a similar basis prior to the adoption of IFRS 16, depreciation of right-of-use assets, finance costs (income), net - leases, amortization of intangibles of acquired businesses, unrealized foreign exchange losses (gains), (gains) losses on disposal of right-of-use assets, property, plant and equipment and intangibles, non-cash share-based compensation costs, losses (gains) on equity derivatives net of mark-to-market adjustments on related RSUs and DSUs being hedged, interest accretion on contingent consideration payables, restructuring costs (recovery), losses (gains) on hedging transactions and interest expense (income) on swaps, acquisition and related transition costs (income), losses (gains) on investments, share of (profit) loss of joint venture, impairment charges, (gains) losses on derivatives, and other costs or income of a non-operating and/or non-recurring nature. The basic weighted average number of shares is adjusted for the effects of weighted average number of restricted shares. All of the adjustments are made net of tax.
  • Over Time revenues, are consistent with IFRS 15, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. These Over Time revenues are comprised of subscription revenues recognized on an over time basis in accordance with IFRS 15, maintenance revenues from legacy perpetual licenses, Appraisal Management revenues, and data subscription revenues.
  • AE software maintenance retention rate, is calculated as a percentage of ARGUS Enterprise (“AE”) software maintenance revenue retained upon renewal; it represents the percentage of the available renewal opportunity in a fiscal period that renews, calculated on a dollar basis, excluding any growth in user count or product expansion.
  • Cloud adoption rate, is a metric that represents the percentage of the total AE user base contracted on the ARGUS Cloud platform. It includes both new AE cloud users as well as those who have migrated from the legacy AE on-premise software.
  • Bookings, is a metric introduced in the first quarter of 2021 for the Altus Analytics business segment. Altus Group defines Bookings as the annual contract value (“ACV”) for new sales of its recurring offerings (software, Appraisal Management solutions and data subscriptions) and the total contract value (“TCV”) for one-time engagements (consulting, training and due diligence). The contract value of renewals is excluded from this metric, with the exception of additional capacity or products purchased at the time of renewal.
  • Annuity billing was implemented in 2018 in the U.K. Property Tax division, which takes place every second quarter annually, excluding the first year of a new cycle; the revenues of the annuity invoicing grow cumulatively over the cycle as more cases are settled and as the volume of billable clients increases concurrent with case settlements.
  • Constant currency allows for current financial and operational performance to be understood against comparative periods without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates against the Canadian dollar. The financial results and non-IFRS measures presented at constant currency within Altus Group’s MD&A and press release are obtained by translating monthly results denominated in local currency (US dollars, British pound, Euro, Australian dollars, and other foreign currencies) at the foreign exchange rates of the comparable month.

All information contained in this press release, other than statements of current and historical fact, is forward-looking information. Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to, the discussion of our business and operating initiatives, focuses and strategies, our expectations of future performance for our various business units and our consolidated financial results, including the guidance on financial expectations, and our expectations with respect to cash flows and liquidity. Generally, forward-looking information can be identified by use of words such as “may”, “will”, “expect”, “believe”, “plan”, “would”, “could”, “remain” and other similar terminology. All of the forward-looking information in this press release is qualified by this cautionary statement.

Forward-looking information is not, and cannot be, a guarantee of future results or events. Forward-looking information is based on, among other things, opinions, assumptions, estimates and analyses that, while considered reasonable by us at the date the forward-looking information is provided, inherently are subject to significant risks, uncertainties, contingencies and other factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements, industry results or events to be materially different from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking information. The material factors or assumptions that we identified and applied in drawing conclusions or making forecasts or projections set out in the forward-looking information include, but are not limited to: engagement and product pipeline opportunities in Altus Analytics will result in associated definitive agreements; settlement volumes in the Property Tax business will occur on a timely basis and that assessment authorities will process appeals in a manner consistent with expectations; the successful execution of our business strategies; consistent and stable economic conditions or conditions in the financial markets; consistent and stable legislation in the various countries in which we operate; no disruptive changes in the technology environment; the opportunity to acquire accretive businesses; the successful integration of acquired businesses; and the continued availability of qualified professionals.

The COVID-19 pandemic has cast additional uncertainty on each of these factors and assumptions. There can be no assurance that they will continue to be valid. Given the rapid pace of change with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is difficult to make further assumptions about these matters. The duration, extent and severity of the impact the COVID-19 pandemic, including measures to prevent its spread, will have on our business is uncertain and difficult to predict at this time. As of the date of this press release, many of our offices and clients remain subject to limitations and restrictions set to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and a significant portion of our employees continue to work remotely.

Inherent in the forward-looking information are known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results, performance or achievements, or industry results, to differ materially from any results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking information.

In addition, while the investigation of the June 13, 2021 cybersecurity incident (as discussed on page 11 of the MD&A) to date has not identified any compromise to our products, services, data or other information, and we have implemented our cybersecurity and business continuity protocols and adopted additional measures to enhance the security of our IT systems to help detect and prevent future attempts or incidents of malicious activity, we are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties in connection with the incident. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the outcome of the ongoing investigation into the incident; costs related to the investigation and any potential liabilities, regulatory investigation or lawsuit resulting from the incident; costs related to and the effectiveness of our mitigation and remediation efforts; our ability to recover proceeds under our insurance policies; and the potential loss of customer and other stakeholder confidence in our ability to protect their information, and the potential adverse financial impact such loss of confidence may have on our business.

Given these risks, uncertainties and other factors, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information as a prediction of actual results. The forward-looking information reflects management’s current expectations and beliefs regarding future events and operating performance and is based on information currently available to management.
