Q1 2024 Highlights

(Refer to Non-GAAP Measures, Gross Margin, EBITDA and Bookings Backlog discussion below)

  • Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2024 ("Q1 2024") decreased by 29% compared to the three months ended March 31, 2023 ("Q1 2023"). Revenue for Q1 2024 was $4.7 million compared to $6.6 million for Q1 2023.
    • The decline was entirely tied to the anticipated sunsetting of a single contract that the company inherited with the acquisition of Gambit Rewards
  • Gross Margin for Q1 2024 increased by 108% from 26% in Q1 2023 to 54% in Q1 2024.
  • EBITDA in Q1 2024 was a loss of $0.6 million vs Q1 2023 EBITDA loss of $1.1 million, an EBITDA improvement of $0.5 million.
  • Bookings Backlog (programs that have been sold, but whose revenues have not yet been recognized) stood at $15.4MM at March 31, 2024, an increase of 12% compared to March 31, 2023 of $13.8MM.
  • Cash at the end of Q1 was $4.2 million and the company continues to be debt free.

"We continued to execute on our strategic plan to enhance our revenue mix and improve gross margins by shedding unprofitable revenue during the first quarter. This revenue decline was expected and was entirely tied to a single pilot contract that we inherited with the acquisition of Gambit. Our focus as outlined previously is on expanding our business with contracts closer to our 50% margin threshold on an aggregate", said Atul Sabharwal, Founder of Snipp. "I'm pleased to report that, our gross margins improved both sequentially and year over year to 54% and importantly revenue from our core business increased by 29% year over year, reflecting the value of our platform and the scalability of our customer solutions. We anticipate continued margin improvement in the upcoming quarters."

"Following the close of the first quarter, Snipp secured multiple large contracts including the largest contract in the company's history. This contract with a leading global food and beverage company, recognized in over 50 countries, is forecast to generate over $6MM of revenue for the company in the third quarter. Moreover, the team secured multiple seven-figure deals with a diverse range of companies across existing and new industries. These significant contracts bolster the confidence and enthusiasm of our sales team, who are now filling our pipeline with several marquee brands and working on growing our unique CPG offerings on our SnippMEDIA platform. As we have communicated to our stakeholders, the seasonality of our business will resemble that of 2023. Our current record backlog indicates that the company's profitability will scale in the second half of the year when promotional activity is typically stronger. Overall, we are very pleased with our progress in repositioning our revenue mix which should position the Company on a sustained path towards EBITDA profitability."

Non-GAAP Measures

Snipp uses certain performance measures throughout this document that are not recognizable under Canadian generally accepted accounting principles or IFRS ("GAAP"). These performance measures include Gross Margin and EBITDA. Management believes that these measures provide supplemental financial information that is useful in the evaluation of the Company's operations.

Investors should be cautioned, however, that these measures should not be construed as alternatives to measures determined in accordance with GAAP and IFRS as an indicator of Snipp's performance. The Company's method of calculating these measures may differ from that of other organizations, and accordingly, these may not be comparable.

Gross Margin

Snipp defines Gross Margin as revenue less campaign infrastructure. The Company's calculation of Gross Margin is not a financial measure that is recognized under GAAP. Investors should be cautioned that the Company's defined Gross Margin should not be construed as an alternative measure to other measures determined in accordance with GAAP.


Snipp defines earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") as revenue minus operating expenses excluding non-cash operating expenses of share-based payments, depreciation and amortization (interest and taxes are not included in the Company's operating expenses).

Bookings Backlog

Snipp defines Bookings Backlog as future revenue from existing customer contracts to be recognized in future quarters. Bookings get translated into revenues based on IFRS principles and the Bookings Backlog reflects how revenues in future quarters are steadily being booked today.The Following are calculations of EBITDA:EBITDA Q1 2024
