Skyfii annual general meeting

This morning Skyfii chair Andrew Johnson and CEO Wayne Arthur addressed shareholders at the company’s AGM.

The pair highlighted Skyfii’s strong financial growth in FY20, with operating revenue growing an impressive 44% and recurring revenue also increasing by 72% over the year. Despite its small market capitalisation, the software provider also posted positive operating earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of $2.1 million and also expects another positive result in FY21.

It was also noted that Skyfii has successfully completed two accretive acquisitions this year: Beonic Technologies, which will add over 300 blue-chip clients, and the retail optimisation solution, Blix.

Notably, Skyfii has poured money into improving its product suite throughout the year, which currently includes artificial intelligence (AI) video analytics, managed services and drone AI.

The results of the meeting clearly impressed shareholders as the Skyfii share price is surging upwards.

Outlook

While a revenue goal was not mentioned in the AGM, the speakers highlighted some areas of focus for the remainder of Skyfii’s year.

They outlined that there would be increased investment into marketing activities to continue to drive quality leads across all markets. This comes with a particular focus on integrating corporate offices, universities and grocery stores into its customer base.

Furthermore, the company announced that it would remain focused on cash management in light of the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. However, if acquisition opportunities present themselves then the company indicated it is likely to act.
