The Bigtincan Holdings Ltd (ASX: BTH) share price is down 2% to $0.47 in Wednesday morning trade after the sales enablement automation platform business released its quarterly report and Appendix 4C for the quarter ended 30 June 2019.
What results did Bigtincan report yesterday?
The company reported annualised recurring revenue (ARR) of $23.4 million, representing a 52% increase over the prior corresponding period. Management noted year-on-year organic growth in ARR was 36%, which demonstrated the strength of the core platform. Growth in ARR was strong across all parts of Bigtincan’s business including content distribution, learning and coaching, and catalog based systems in key verticals such as Life Sciences, Manufacturing and Retail.
During the quarter, Bigtincan continued its land and expand strategy that resulted in a number of key enterprise customer wins and expansions globally. These included Anheuser-Busch, Brookdale Senior Living and Sony Playstation.
The company has also released new products during the quarter including the showcase of Bigtincan Genie voice assistant, and its FatStax acquisition has exceeded the top-tier of its earn-out performance target.
Bigtincan reported cash receipts from customers of $5.5 million for the quarter, an increase of 119% over the prior corresponding period. The quarterly cash collection for the June 2019 quarter was the highest Bigtincan has reported to date.

For the financial year to date, Bigtincan reported cash receipts from customers of $18.8 million and an operating cash loss of $8.2 million.
At the end of June the company had $25.4 million in cash and cash equivalents after successfully completing a $15.6 million entitlement offer during the quarter, which will be used to fund key organic growth initiatives and M&A opportunities that meet its acquisition criteria.
