Reaffirming Record FY23 EBITA Guidance on Forecast 69% Jump in Revenue to ~$40M

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, 27th July 2023: Beam Communications Holdings Ltd (ASX: BCC) is pleased to announce: Reaffirming Record FY23 EBITA Guidance on Forecast 69% Jump in Revenue to ~$40M


Beam Communications Holdings Ltd (ASX: BCC, “Beam” or the “Company”), notwithstanding that preparations for the year ended 30 June 2023 statutory financial statements are ongoing, is pleased to confirm that FY23 earnings and revenue are expected to demonstrate a record year for the Company.

The Company expects to meet its full-year guidance of:

• Circa $4 million in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA); and
• Revenue of approximately $40 million, which is significantly ahead of its FY22 revenue of $23.7 million.

Further, Net Profit After Tax (NPAT) is expected to exceed $2 million for FY23 as a result of the strong performance in the year and the write up of remaining unrecognised tax losses, as noted in the prior year’s financial statements. This decision is the result of confidence in the business model going forward and the strong FY23 expected outcome.

As mentioned in prior market updates, closing cash is expected to show the working capital investment cycle back to cash, with closing of ~$5 million anticipated. Despite reports of rising cost of living pressures weighing on the broader economy, trading conditions are tracking at or above the Company’s expectations and it believes this momentum will continue into FY24.

We also note the performance our Joint Venture, ZOLEO Inc:

• Expected FY23 Total Revenue USD$27m,
• Expected FY23 Subscription Revenue USD$17m,
• Total number of global subscribers at 30 June 2023 of ~71,000.

As ZOLEO Inc is not a controlled entity, these results are not consolidated into BCC’s results and are accounted for pursuant to AASB 128 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures.

All figures are subject to audit. This announcement was approved by the Board of Directors.
