Strong Results Amid Robust Demand Environment

IRVING, Texas, Aug. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AgileThought, Inc. (“AgileThought” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AGIL), a global provider of digital transformation services, custom software development, and next generation technologies, today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights and Results:

  • Revenue increased 18.6% year-over-year to $46.2 million from $38.9 million in Q2 2021 and increased 4.4% from $44.2 million in Q1 2022.

  • Gross margin of 33.3% increased 220 bps from 31.1% in Q2 2021, and 200 bps from 31.3% in Q1 2022.

  • 3 new clients added during the quarter.

  • LTM (Last Twelve Months) - signed Total Contract Value, or TCV of $239.0 million representing 1.4x Book to Bill ratio (TCV/Revenue).

“This has been another strong quarter for AgileThought, with revenues above our guidance and gross margin improvement. We have continued to transform our company to capitalize on the significant digital IT services end-market opportunity. During the quarter, we launched our revamped delivery structure, including Guilds and AgileSquads. We also added a Chief People Officer and are currently working on materially enhancing our hiring, training and retention platforms. In addition, we began an exciting partnership with Experience IT. We are already starting to witness the benefits of these actions, which in addition to our continuously expanding sales function, should position us well on the path of industry leading performance in the coming years,” commented AgileThought Chief Executive Officer Manuel Senderos.

“Our second quarter results indicate that we are progressing well towards our mid/long-term goals of industry leading top-line growth and gross margins. This performance is the result of all the actions we have taken in the recent quarters. We have also continued our efforts to strengthen our Balance Sheet. We reduced our Accounts Payable level during the second quarter to $13.5 million, from $23.1 million on the previous quarter. In spite of this, our cash balance as of June 30, 2022, was $11.3 million, compared to $2.7 million at the end of the previous quarter. In addition to the recent strengthening of our delivery and people functions, we are now also significantly de-emphasizing any non-core revenues. This, we believe, will help us further accelerate our top-line growth and margin improvement in the coming years,” commented AgileThought Chief Financial Officer Amit Singh.

Leadership Update

On July 4, 2022, AgileThought announced that Gonzalo Mones had been appointed as the Company’s Chief People Officer. Mr. Mones brings with him deep knowledge and passion for the entire talent lifecycle and over 15 years serving the IT Services industry within their people organizations. Gonzalo was most recently Head of People at Wildlife Studios. He previously worked at Globant, where he was one of the primary architects of Globant's global hiring, training, and retention infrastructure, helping the company pursue an aggressive revenue growth strategy.

Third Quarter and Full Year 2022 Outlook

The table below summarizes AgileThought’s financial outlook for the third quarter and full year of 2022.

  • Revenues for the third quarter 2022 of at least $42.1 million

  • Revenues for the full year 2022 of at least $174.7 million, implying at least 10% year over year growth

  • Gross margin for the full year 2022 in 31% to 32% range

  • Our revenue outlook for the third quarter and the full-year 2022 now reflects our aggressive focus towards exiting from non-core projects; our gross margin outlook now includes higher than previously planned spending towards our people function

Non-GAAP Measures

Management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, and reconciliations to those measures, to evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital and new investments and to make performance-based compensation decisions for key personnel. The measures exclude certain expenses that are required under U.S. GAAP. We exclude certain non-cash expenses and certain items that are not part of our core operations.

Management believes these supplemental performance measurements are useful in evaluating operating performance, as they are similar to measures reported by our public industry peers and those regularly used by security analysts, investors and other interested parties in analyzing operating performance and prospects. The non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be a substitute for any GAAP financial measures and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of performance of other companies in other industries or within the same industry.

There are significant limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Further, these measures may differ from the non-GAAP information, even where similarly titled, used by other companies and therefore should not be used to compare our performance to that of other companies. We compensate for these limitations by providing investors and other users of our financial information a reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures to the related GAAP financial measure. We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety, not to rely on any single financial measure and to view our non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures.

We define and calculate our non-GAAP financial measures as follows:

  • Adjusted Operating Income: (Loss) income from operations adjusted to exclude the change in fair value of embedded derivative liability, plus the change in fair value of contingent consideration obligation, plus the change in fair value of warrant liability, plus equity-based compensation expense, plus impairment charges, plus restructuring expenses, plus (gain) loss on business dispositions, plus (gain) loss on debt extinguishment, plus intangible assets amortization, plus certain transaction costs and certain other operating expense (income), net.

  • Adjusted Net Income (Loss): Net (Loss) income adjusted to exclude the change in fair value of embedded derivative liability, plus the change in fair value of contingent consideration obligations, plus the change in fair value of warrant liability, plus equity-based compensation expense, plus impairment charges, plus restructuring expenses, plus (gain) loss on business dispositions, plus foreign exchange loss (gain), plus (gain) loss on debt extinguishment and debt forgiveness, plus intangible assets amortization, plus certain transaction costs, plus paid in kind interest and amortization of debt issuance cost and certain other expense, net.

  • Adjusted Diluted EPS: Adjusted Net income, divided by the diluted weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period.
