“Many of our concerted efforts to diversify our customer base beyond Canada and enter new markets with more differentiated offerings demonstrated some of their early returns,” said Kevin Ford, Calian CEO. “Our track record of deploying capital to drive long-term growth, margin expansion and profitability remains our focus. This quarter’s record results across revenues and margins only strengthens our position to continue on our various growth initiatives.”
The third quarter of 2022 carried on the Company’s continued growth through acquisition and margin expansion. Revenues year to date were $421 million compared to $390 million in FY21 and $309 million in FY20. Gross margins year to date were 28% compared to 24% in FY21 and 21% in FY20. The Company signed an additional $190 million in new contracts during the quarter and exited with a strong backlog of $1.3 billion.
“This was a strong quarter across many fronts. Our ability to continue to expand gross margins and EBITDA while maintaining top-line growth was impressive. We also continued our strong track record of converting this performance into cash flow,” said Patrick Houston, Calian Chief Financial Officer. “We posted operating cash flow of nearly $12 million and working capital contributed an additional $8 million in the quarter.”
“Our four piston segment model once again demonstrated the value of Calian’s diversity. While Advanced Technologies and Health faced some headwinds in year over year performance, our Learning and IT Cyber business units had strong performance to keep Calian group consolidated results on record pace,” said Kevin Ford. “We have adjusted our revenue guidance for the final quarter of our fiscal year to reflect timing around larger revenue opportunities in the Advanced Technologies segment and slower sales in Health as the industry rebounds from COVID, which has been offset by better margin performance across the business allowing us to maintain our EBITDA and net profit guidance.”
