Otonomo Updates 2021 Revenue Guidance
HERZLIYA, Israel and SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Otonomo Technologies Ltd. (Otonomo) (Nasdaq: OTMO), a leading provider of a pioneering mobility intelligence platform, announced today that it expects to release its financial results for the third quarter (which ended on September 30, 2021) at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday, November 12, 2021.
Ben Volkow, Otonomo’s CEO & CO-Founder, commented: “We see strong growth in various verticals of the business, including smart cities and fleets. Additionally, we are excited about our recently announced agreements with Amazon, Salesforce, Leaseplan and other customers. However, the benefits of these agreements will take additional time to be reflected in our financial results. With newly revised forecasts taking into account a slowing of worldwide automotive production attributable to the global pandemic, as well as, slower adoption of connected cars and delays with our OEM partners, we estimate that our near-term revenue will fall short of our original estimates for the year.”
“As we consider our future milestones, we view our recent acquisition of Neura, a provider of cutting-edge mobility analytics powered by patented artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, as a catalyst for additional growth opportunities. Additionally, we remain bullish on our business and long-term vision. Otonomo will continue to lay the foundation for a mobility and automotive industry based on the power of data intelligence.”
Operational and financial results for the third quarter of 2021 will be included in a press release to be issued prior to the call on November 12.
In addition, based on preliminary results, Otonomo expects its revenue for fiscal year 2021 will be between $1.4 million and $1.5 million. The Company anticipates the majority of 2021 revenue to be weighted towards year-end.
The updated revenue guidance for fiscal year 2021 included in this release is based on the preliminary information available to us at this time and may vary based upon completion of our financial closing procedures and final adjustments. It has not been audited or reviewed by our independent registered public accounting firm. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on this preliminary data.
