Dubber Corp (ASX:DUB) 

The conversational intelligence and unified conversational recording company has announced it’s on track to deliver a record revenue result of $30m in FY23, with an annualised exit revenue run-rate of $36m based on expected revenues for June following a review of its operations.

Q4 FY23 revenue is expected to be up 20% on Q3 FY23, with DUB also on track to achieve cash flow breakeven during FY25 within existing cash reserves.

DUB said its cost reduction program is on track to deliver $5 million of quarterly cash cost savings by Q1 FY24.

The company has identified an additional $4m-7m of cost savings which are expected to be delivered over FY24.

As a result, DUB expects $65 million of costs in FY24 (excluding share-based payment expenses), down from $89-92m in FY23, with costs being broadly flat over the course of FY24 (excluding any timing impacts of working capital).

CEO Steve McGovern said DUB’s review of its business operations in FY23 has led to improvements in efficiencies and the appointment of key personnel at a management and board level.

He said it had also led to delivery on its substantial investment in technology development with the release of a new AI product suite, Moments, that has been well received by its partners and customers.

“There is an expectation globally that AI will have significant impact in our daily lives,” he said.

“Dubber uniquely brings that capability to communications networks, the very source of the call, backed by a brand that is trusted and widely regarded by the world’s communications service providers as the leader in network-based data capture and Conversational AI.”
