VANCOUVER, British Columbia (May 6, 2021) – Datable Technology Corporation (TSXV: DAC) (OTCQB: TTMZF) (the “Company” or “Datable”), a software company that provides a marketing automation platform called PLATFORM³ to global consumer brands, announces that it has signed two short-term license and rewards agreements (the “Agreements”) for approximately total $833,000 in contracted revenue with a leading bedding company (the “Customer”).
The Customer is headquartered in the U.S. and sells its products under 4 major brands in about 150 countries. In 2020 the Customer used PLATFORM³ for a trial program, before allocating a larger budget pursuant to the Agreements in 2021. The Agreements provide the Customer with a license to use PLATFORM³ to implement a digital loyalty and rewards program in the U.S. for two of its leading brands.
Under the Agreements the programs start in June 2021 and run for about one month ending in July 2021:
– Datable will use PLATFORM³ to configure two microsite portals for consumers of the Customer’s products under two of its brands. The portal will host various modules of PLATFORM³ including Contests and Promotions, Purchase Receipt Validation, Consumer/Transaction Data Capture & Analytics. Consumers will be asked to purchase participating products from retailers nationwide in the U.S. After the purchase has been validated by PLATFORM³, the consumer will receive a reward based on the value of their purchase.
– The Agreements include license fees and rewards for a total of approximately $833,000. The mix of products and services in the Agreements is expected to generate gross margins lower than Datable’s estimated gross margin of 55% for year ended December 31, 2021, due to a higher percentage of lower margin services.
“We are very pleased that this customer has the confidence to allocate a significant budget to a program hosted by PLATFORM³, after signing on for a trial program last year,” said Robert Craig, Datable’s CEO. “In 2021, we are seeing a trend to larger short-term and annual agreements with new and existing customers. Most of our customers are leading consumer goods companies, which are all seeking to drive incremental sales and enhance consumer loyalty with real-time, meaningful digital rewards.”
Datable now has close to $4.5 million in contracted revenue for 2021 and future periods, of which approximately $3.9 million is expected to be recognized as revenue in 2021. The expected recognized revenue of $3.9 million in 2021 is already equal to revenue growth of 98% compared to 2020 with eight months left in 2021 to further increase revenue. Datable expects gross margin to be about 55% in 2021. As recently announced (see press release dated April 26, 2021), Datable grew revenue by 26% to approximately $1.97 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, with gross margins of 59%.
