This rise in operating loss is primarily due to higher operating expenses. Operating expenses were up $0.3M in Q2 FY24 compared to Q2 FY23, primarily due to the estimated accrued liability related to an ongoing contract dispute of approximately $0.5M.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for Q2 FY24 was $0.8M compared to $0.5M for Q2 FY23. Adjusted EBITDA for 6M FY24 was $1.9M compared to Adjusted EBITDA for 6M FY23 of $1.7M primarily due to negative currency exchange rate movements of $0.6M in Q2 FY24 compared to Q2 FY23.

  • Cash balance of $3.6M for Q2 FY24 declined 10% compared to $4.1M at September 30, 2023. The modest decrease in cashposition was due to a negative effect of exchange rate changes on cash of $0.3M and a decrease in net cash provided by operating activities of approximately $0.1M.
  • Net loss attributable to shareholders in Q2 FY24 was ($1.9M) compared to ($1.5M) in Q2 FY23, an increase of $0.4M. Net lossattributable to shareholders in 6M FY24 was ($1.9M), compared to ($1.4M) for 6M FY23, a change principally attributable to negative currency exchange rate movements and an estimated accrued liability related to an ongoing contract dispute of approximately $0.5M.

Due to a rising trend in bail reform, our new statewide pretrial contract is showing growth, as are some of the other ten (10) new contracts won in FY23. Our expertise supervising high-risk populations uniquely positions us to address bipartisan concerns across the U.S., where bail reform initiatives are taking shape. As these contracts are fully implemented in the next fiscal year, we reiterate that the Company anticipates growth in revenue and operating income,” said Derek Cassell, Track Group’s CEO.

 

Financial Highlights

  • Total FY23 revenue of $34.5M was down approximately 6.7% compared to FY22 revenue of $37.0M. The drop in revenue was caused by less activity at customers in the U.S. and Canada offset by increases in revenue for our customer in Chile.

  • Operating loss in FY23 of ($1.5M) improved compared to the operating loss of ($2.1M) in FY22. The improvement in net loss in FY23 is primarily due to the impairment charge of $1.7M associated with the discontinuance of two product lines in FY22 and the decrease in depreciation and amortization that resulted from the impairment.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for FY23 of $3.8M, compared to $6.6M for FY22 due to the drop in revenue, gross profit and the increase in certain operating expenses. Adjusted EBITDA in FY23 as a percentage of revenue declined to 11.1%, compared to 18.0% for FY22 for the same reasons.
  • Cash balance of $4.1M for FY23, compared to $5.3M for FY22. The change in cash position was principally due to the reinvestment in monitoring technology, offset by a decrease in net operating assets, mainly accounts receivable and prepaid expenses, deposits and other assets.

However, due to the adaptive strategies deployed early in the fiscal year, by early September 2022, we were able to resume manufacturing new devices toward targeted, pre-pandemic volumes. As a result, we have commenced implementation of new programs and are confident in our ability to support the expected growth from our customers in FY23. Consequently, we look forward to much improved results in the coming year,” said Derek Cassell, Track Group’s CEO.

(OTCQX: TRCK), a global leader in offender tracking and monitoring services, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended June 30, 2022 (“Q3 FY22”).

“Although a reinvestment in our technology and infrastructure, coupled with supply chain constraints brought on by the pandemic continued to put a damper on our financial results for the third quarter ended June 30, 2022, we anticipate the realization of several preempted strategies in the next sixty to one hundred twenty days which would enable us to increase the manufacturing of new devices, commence implementation of recently awarded programs and support customer growth and demands into FY23,” said Derek Cassell, Track Group’s CEO.

 

Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue of $9.0 million in Q3 FY22 was down compared to Q3 FY21 total revenue of $10.3 million. Revenue for the 9 months ended June 30, 2022 (“9M FY22”) of $28.1 million was also down approximately 5% compared to revenue of $29.6 million for the 9 months ended June 30, 2021 (“9M FY21”) as declines in North America monitoring revenue was offset by increases in both monitoring and product sales among international customers. Revenues are expected to rebound as fulfilled orders from strategic supply chain deliveries resume over the next two quarters.
  • Gross profit in Q3 FY22 was $4.0 million compared to Q3 FY21 gross profit of $5.6 million. Gross profit for the 9M FY22 was $13.3 million compared to gross profit of $16.3 million for 9M FY21, principally due to the decline in revenue, and an increase in certain expenses including higher depreciation and amortization, server, device repair and telecommunication expenses.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the Q3 FY22 was $1.3 million, compared to $2.8 million for Q3 FY21. Adjusted EBITDA for 9M FY22 was $5.3 million compared to the Adjusted EBITDA for 9M FY21 of $8.3 million.

  • As of June 30, 2022, the cash balance was down to $4.9 million compared to $8.4 million on September 30, 2021. The reduction in cash from September 30, 2021, reflects continued significant capital investments made by the Company of approximately $3.0 million in the 9M FY22 to build additional monitoring devices, update software, and develop next-generation tracking technology.
  • Total operating expense for Q3 FY22 of $4.5 million was up 4% versus Q3 FY21’s total operating expense of $4.3 million, principally due to an increase in travel, tradeshow, payroll and insurance expenses offset by a reduction in bad debt expense. When combined with the reduction in gross profit, the increase in quarterly operating expense led to an operating loss in Q3 FY22 of $0.5 million compared to operating income of $1.3 million for Q3 FY21. Similarly, for the 9M FY22, operating income was less than $0.1 million compared to operating income of $4.4 million for the 9M FY21 due to the reduction in gross profit and the increase in operating expense.
  • The Net loss attributable to common shareholders in Q3 FY22 was $3.6 million compared to Net income attributable to common shareholders of $1.2 million in Q3 FY21. Similarly, the Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the 9M FY22 was $3.5 million, compared to net income of $4.7 million for the 9M FY21, a change principally attributable to the reduction in Other Income to a loss position caused by the drop in operating income, a currency exchange loss and the swing from the forgiveness of the PPP loan one year ago to a legal settlement during the period.

NAPERVILLE, IL – Track Group, Inc. (OTCQX: TRCK), a global leader in offender tracking and monitoring services, announced today it has entered an exclusive partnership with Socrates Software LLC to deploy Socrates 360, a multipurpose app designed to better prepare justice-involved individuals for success in the community after incarceration.

Roughly 600,000 of them return to communities each year with limited access to tools that support their reintegration. Track Group and Socrates aim to change that by providing education, life skills, and vocational training to prisoners, parolees, and probationers, both during and after their sentences.

“With Socrates 360, we are combining technology and skills training to help participants succeed after being released from custody,” said Derek Cassell, Track Group’s CEO. “I believe by providing tailored education, employment, and life skills courses, we can better assist government agencies tasked with helping people get back on their feet.”
