Envirosuite, the leading environmental intelligence technology company, has achieved record quarterly sales of $6.0m in Q4 FY2022 up 27.7% on the PCP. The Company has shown strong growth across all three product suites with new Q4 ARR of $3.1m up 34.8% PCP, and Project Sales of $2.9m up 20.8% PCP.
Total ARR1 has grown to $53.0m up 14.0% on PCP, with new ARR for FY2022 of $8.6m up 30.3% PCP. Project Sales for FY2022 of $9.8m is up 20.9% PCP. Project Sales remains an important yardstick for future new ARR. Typically, customers purchase instrumentation such as noise monitoring equipment on a project basis, invoiced once deployed, with EVS then providing recurring services, invoiced periodically, through longer term contracts once instrumentation is deployed.
Additional Project Sales are won where customers expand the product deployment across multiple sites and periodically refresh instrumentation. Churn remains low at approximately 2.5% for FY2022.
New ARR growth by product suite is as follows:
Jason Cooper, Envirosuite CEO, said: Achieving $6.0m in sales in Q4 was an exceptional result and highlights the strong customer acquisition model that we have developed this year and enabled us to finish strongly in FY2022. A key achievement was the relatively even contribution from all three regions. Omnis continues to be the high growth engine of Envirosuite and contributed over 50% of new ARR this financial year. Our focus on the Land, Expand & Scale strategy has been highly successful across all regions and product suites. EVS Water achieved significant success through global expansion into new markets.”
This quarter we continue to see the recovery within the Aviation sector which has translated into an 85.7% QoQ increase in new ARR, demonstrating that airports are regaining the confidence to make investment decisions. Total air traffic in May 2022 up 83.1%5 compared to May 2021, largely driven by the strong recovery in international traffic. Global air traffic is now at 68.7% of pre-crisis levels, with further recovery expected in the coming quarter.
EVS’ global leadership in Aviation was highlighted this quarter by the addition of three new airports and adoption of the Carbon Emissions technology by the Spanish Airports Authority, AENA.
EVS’ NoiseDesk (a powerful, easy-to-use SaaS platform for noise management), was launched on the ANOMS X platform for over 30 customers including Korean Airport Corporation’s Gimhae Airport and Istanbul’s new airport, one of the largest airports worldwide where EVS now has a strategic path to grow in the future.
Jason Cooper, Envirosuite CEO, said: “It is fantastic to see airports returning to pre-pandemic activity levels and the immediate priority the industry has placed on ESG factors as they plan sustainable post-pandemic recoveries. EVS Aviation has been our anchor product suite for many years, and I’m particularly proud of our ongoing innovation in this space, with new technology such as the Carbon Emission and NoiseDesk products providing scope for continued growth.”
EVS Water is our high margin growth portfolio for the Company with two main products sold on a SaaS basis. The Plant Optimiser product assists customers to materially reduce their risk and the two highest costs in water treatment and delivery: electricity and chemicals. Our SeweX product is an advanced modelling tool that supports water utilities to proactively manage and respond to corrosion, safety, and odour risks in their sewer networks.
EVS Water continued its growth this quarter, contributing $0.4m towards new Q4 ARR and it achieved the $1.0m milestone in total ARR for FY2022 during the quarter. Q4 was particularly notable as the product achieved adoption in the key global markets of the Americas and EMEA, demonstrating the global scale potential of EVS Water. Globally we contracted with the Greater Paris Sanitation Authority (‘SIAPP’), with DAM (Depuración de Aguas del Mediterráneo), a large water organisation in Spain operating several water treatment facilities and in the City of Kalamazoo in Michigan, USA.
Water also demonstrated its cross-sell potential during the quarter, combining with Omnis to deliver a holistic solution to DAM and with the City of Kalamazoo.
In Australia, EVS successfully contracted three additional sites for Western Australia’s Water Corporation bringing to a total of seven sites using the SeweX product. These sites plus the overseas success demonstrates the commercial opportunities of the SaaS-based SeweX product.
Jason Cooper, Envirosuite CEO, said: “It’s rewarding to see this Australian-grown technology being adopted and deployed into global markets. Importantly, after investing in Water’s development and deployment, EVS Water has demonstrated and proven its commercial value to large global water utilities.”
EVS Omnis continues to deliver across multiple sectors including mining, industrial, cities, waste-to-energy, waste and wastewater with new ARR in Q4 of $1.4m. Omnis’ rapid growth has resulted in it contributing over 50% of the Groups new ARR for FY2022. The cross-sell potential between Omnis and Water has been validated with the solutions providing a holistic offering to clients across existing and new industry verticals.
This quarter the EVS Omnis platform launched, bringing to market a leading combined air quality, noise and vibration solution. Providing a single ‘pane of glass’ for industrial customers to monitor, analyse and operate effectively through their most pressing emissions and community concerns. The platform builds on significant IP from decades of experience, combining science and technology to enable powerful decision making for our customers.
EVS Omnis demonstrated its breadth of applicability by signing with Aggregate Industries, part of the global Holcim Group (the world leader in construction and building aggregates). EVS will help Aggregate Industries to achieve situational awareness and make better-informed decisions using EVS Omnis for air quality and noise to proactively manage their operations and mitigate impact on the community.
The recent signing of a Taiwanese manufacturing customer has quickly demonstrated significant value and scalability for them, reflected by the addition of further sites in the quarter.
Mining continued to be a significant contributor to the success of EVS Omnis, in Europe, Envirosuite has signed the world’s most efficient open- pit copper mine. Using EVS Omnis’ real-time monitoring and science-based forecasting, EVS will support the customer’s operation team to plan and act before dust events occur and mitigate the impact to the nearby communities. In Australia, the signing of a significant resource company with scope for domestic and international expansion. Demonstrating further confidence in the product, Teck Resources expanded its deployment to continue meeting its sustainability goals and improve air quality and dust management around its mine sites.
Jason Cooper, Envirosuite CEO, said: “Omnis showed its strengths across all metrics this quarter, from our long- term investment in innovation culminating in the release of the new platform, enhancing our land, expand and scale strategy, through to opening exciting new segments and again contracting with some of the largest organisations globally.”
Jason Cooper, Envirosuite CEO, said: “Our customers are reporting that ESG considerations are increasingly driving buying decisions, where institutional investors, regulators, and governments, are demanding accurate and quantifiable measurement and monitoring of key ESG metrics. Our customers only see this trend continuing, with our strategic positioning as a global provider of these services, there is evidence that our product suites will continue to grow Group revenues and earnings.
It is now clear that Omnis is a highly scalable Environmental Intelligence platform that serves customers in many different segments. With the aviation industry showing strong signs of getting back to pre-pandemic levels we are well positioned to continue to support our customers through what is clearly a transformative time. By leveraging the reference sites of EVS Water in North America and Europe, we now have early validation supporting our strong product market fit.
Our Land, Expand and Scale strategy has been highly effective in Q4 with rapid take up of our products in all regions with highly scalable customers. This will be a continuing focus for our sales and marketing team, supporting some of the most significant industrial organisations on the planet. We are highly confident that the momentum that we have built in FY2022 will continue into FY2023 and beyond.”
