The Audinate Group Ltd (ASX: AD8) share price is surging today after the company reported its preliminary results for FY22.

The technology company’s shares are currently up 5.42% at $8.75 apiece. However, they were earlier trading for $9.10, a 9.64% gain. For perspective, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is lifting 0.70% while the S&P/ASX All Technology Index (ASX: XTX) is currently up 2.52%.

So what did the Audinate Group report in these results?

Audinate share price up as revenue jumps 33%

Highlights of the Audinate unaudited results for FY22 include:

Revenue of US$33.4 million, up 33.4% from US$25 million in prior year
Australian dollars unaudited revenue of $46.3 million, up 38.7% from FY21
Predicted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) of $3.8 million to $4.3 million, up from $3 million in FY21
Gross profit margin of 74.7%, down from 76% in FY21

What else did Audinate report?

Underpinning this large increase in revenue was better than expected chip supplies in late quarter four. This led to a “strong” finish to the financial year.

Due to a boost in chip supplies, unmet demand from the third quarter was delivered in the fourth quarter of FY22.

Further, the company was able to deliver some of Q1 FY23 demand earlier than expected. The higher variation in the US dollar compared to the Australian dollar also helped boost revenue in Australian dollar terms.

Audinate said gross profit margin was in line with expectations, despite spot inventory cost pressures.

Commenting on the results boosting the Audinate share price today, co-founder and CEO Aidan Williams said: “It is particularly satisfying to have delivered very strong revenue growth, despite a challenging operating environment over the last 12 months.”

What’s ahead?

Audinate said it expects supply chain disruption and economic uncertainty to continue in FY23.

Commenting on the future outlook, Williams said:

We continue to operate on a cautious and prudent footing.

We look forward to providing a full run-down of the FY22 results and expectations for the year ahead when we release our financial results at the end of August.

Audinate will deliver its full FY22 results on 22 August.
