Palantir Investment WEJO Releases First Quarter Results
Palantir SPAC investment WEJO released results today. Highlights:
First Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights
Net Revenue increased 86% to $568 thousand in the quarter, driven by strong growth in the Traffic Management product line of the Wejo Marketplace Data Solutions as well as a 122% increase in customers compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2021.
Net loss was $40.3 million, an improvement of 61% from the prior year period, due to losses on the issuance of the convertible loan notes and on the fair value of the derivative liability for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. This improvement was offset by a loss on fair value on forward purchase agreement, costs for capital raising activities and higher expenses due to increased headcount and technology spending for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.
Adjusted EBITDA1 was a loss of $25.2 million, which is in line with the Company's outlook as it continues to manage expenses.
Gross Bookings (defined as the total value of new customer deals signed in the period) increased over 300% to $6.4 million compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2021. This increase represents robust growth in new customers and growth in the Company's base of recurring revenue in future periods.
Gross Billings (defined as billed amounts to customers in the period) increased 138% to $1.9 million and demonstrates the growth in cash generated from customer activity.
Annual Recurring Revenue (“ARR”) for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 increased 45% to $4.5 million, as the Company remains focused on delivering multi-year subscription deals that leverage its expanding product set. We calculate ARR by taking the gross Monthly Recurring Revenue (“MRR”) for the last month of the reporting period and multiplying it by 12. MRR for each month is calculated by aggregating revenue from customers with contracts with more than four months in duration and includes recurring software licenses, data licenses, and subscription agreements.
Total Contract Value (“TCV,” defined as new and existing contracts signed to-date as of a date certain) increased 97% to $27.0 million as of March 31, 2022 compared to the metric as of March 31, 2021, as Wejo launched new products and added more leading enterprise customers. Some of our leading new customers include Inrix, Rekor, and Telenav.
Generated $1.18 in annualized Gross Bookings per average monetizable connected vehicle on a rolling four quarter basis, up 146% over the same period last year.
