TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARHT Media Inc. ("ARHT" or "the Company") (TSXV: ART), (OTCQB: ARHTF) the global leader in the development, production, and distribution of high-quality, low latency hologram and digital content, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

Q3 2023 Financial Update

  • Revenue for Q3 2023 was $1.4M compared to $2.0M for Q3 2022. The decrease reflects our strategic shift to product sales from event rentals, which has a longer sales cycle but drives higher customer lifetime value and overall revenue. In addition, several customer sales agreements were pushed from Q3 into Q4 of 2023.
  • Gross Margin increased to 57% in Q3 2023 vs. 51% in Q3 2022.
  • Q3 2023 Adjusted EBITDA loss of - $1.8M vs -$1.4M in Q3 2022.
  • Cash as of Sep 30, 2023 was $0.5M as compared to $0.5M on June 30, 2023.

“During the third quarter, ARHT Media achieved a number of important milestones that have positioned the Company as the state-of-the-art holographic organization serving large scale global enterprise clients,” stated ARHT Media CEO, Larry O’Reilly. “We are already seeing multi-unit orders from these global enterprise clients and channel partners. I am particularly proud of the development and launch of the ARHT 2.0 operating system, as well as the ARHT SAAS-based holographic network and supporting NOC technical support – the only one of its kind in the industry. The ARHT team is very excited about the growth we are seeing in this very dynamic industry as it continues to mature.”

“While third quarter financial results were below our expectations, I am optimistic about the performance of the company going forward and we expect revenues to end 2024 on a strong note.” Mr. O’Reilly commented.
