Q3 2022 Review

On a consolidated basis, revenues were $177.7 million, up 17.1% (18.1% on a constant currency basis) and Adjusted EBITDA was $32.9 million, up 34.8% (33.6% on a constant currency basis). Organic revenue* growth was 12.0% (13.2% on a constant currency basis). Adjusted EPS was $0.42, up 7.7% from $0.39 in the third quarter of 2021 (which included a lower weighted average number of shares outstanding).

Consolidated profit, in accordance with IFRS, was $6.8 million, up from a loss of $(0.3) million the same period in 2021. In addition to the higher Adjusted EBITDA, profit was impacted by restructuring costs related to the Company’s 2022 global restructuring program, higher amortization of acquisition-related intangibles related to acquisitions, costs related to organizational and strategic initiatives, and losses on equity derivatives. This was partially offset by profit recognized from the Company’s GeoVerra Inc. joint venture and unrealized gains due to foreign exchange. Profit also benefitted from lower acquisition and related transition costs for the integrations of previous acquisitions in the prior year which are largely complete.

Altus Analytics revenues increased to $87.6 million, up 34.6% (34.8% on a constant currency basis). Organic revenue growth was 24.5% (25.0% on a constant currency basis). The acquisition of Reonomy represented 10.1% of the total 34.6% revenue growth. Adjusted EBITDA was $20.9 million, up 78.4% (75.8% on a constant currency basis) driving an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 23.9%.

  • Over Time Revenues were $76.9 million, up 39.6% (40.1% on a constant currency basis). On an organic basis, Over Time Revenues were up 27.7% (up 28.2% on a constant currency basis). Sequentially, Over Time Revenues grew 8.5% (7.7% on a constant currency basis) from $70.9 million in the second quarter of 2022. Over Time Revenues benefitted from strong performance across key solutions with robust customer expansion as well as new customer additions. While the majority of growth continues to come from North America, Altus Analytics also posted notable growth internationally, both in EMEA and APAC.  
  • Bookings in the third quarter were $26.9 million, up 30.9% (27.9% on a constant currency basis). Organic Bookings* growth was 23.0% (20.1% on a constant currency basis). Recurring Bookings were up significantly, growing at 59.0% (54.5% on a constant currency basis).  
  • As at the end of the third quarter, 55% of Company’s total AE user base had been contracted on ARGUS Cloud, consistent with Management’s expectations.  
  • Adjusted EBITDA growth and margin benefitted from higher revenues, improving operating efficiencies, ongoing cost optimization efforts, and foreign exchange fluctuations.

CRE Consulting revenues increased to $90.3 million, up 4.0% (5.7% on a constant currency basis) and Adjusted EBITDA was $21.9 million, down 2.7% (1.8% on a constant currency basis).

  • Property Tax revenues were $60.7 million, up 3.9% (6.0% on a constant currency basis) and Adjusted EBITDA was $17.8 million, down 4.5% (3.5% on a constant currency basis). Most of the revenue growth was organic with both the U.S. and Canadian Property Tax operations up in the double-digits, offset by a decline in the U.K. which continues to be impacted by the slowed cadence of settlement volumes and foreign currency headwinds. The U.K. pipeline of cases to be settled in upcoming quarters remains robust.  
  • Valuation and Cost Advisory revenues were $29.5 million, up 4.4% (5.2% on a constant currency basis) and Adjusted EBITDA was $4.1 million, up 5.6% (6.6% on a constant currency basis), benefitting from moderate growth at both businesses, as well as a lower compare in the same period last year which included the impact of the cybersecurity incident.

Corporate Costs were $9.9 million, compared to $9.8 million in the same period in 2021. The decrease in corporate costs reflects lower consulting fees for professional advisory.

Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, Altus initiated a global restructuring program which resulted in additional restructuring costs of $8.0 million in the third quarter. More than half of that related to the Company’s ongoing efforts to rationalize its leased office space in certain markets, and the remainder related to employee severance costs reflecting synergies from acquisitions, efficiencies gained from investments in technology, and the ongoing evolution of the Company’s target operating models in support of its strategic initiatives. The program has resulted in $21.9 million of restructuring costs for the nine-month period and is expected to continue until the end of the year.

As at September 30, 2022, bank debt was $324.0 million and cash and cash equivalents were $46.6 million (representing a funded debt to Adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio of 2.29 times, as such ratio is defined in the Company’s credit facility agreement, or a net debt to Adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio of 2.20 times).

*Altus Group uses certain supplementary financial and other measures such as Organic Bookings, Organic Revenues, and AE software maintenance retention rate. Since these measures are not standard measures under GAAP, they may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other entities. Refer to the “Non-GAAP and Other Measures” section for more information on each measure.

Non-GAAP and Other Measures

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use certain non-GAAP measures as indicators of financial performance. Readers are cautioned that they are not defined performance measures, and do not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and may differ from similar computations as reported by other similar entities and, accordingly, may not be comparable to financial measures as reported by those entities. We believe that these measures which include non-GAAP financial measures and non-GAAP ratios as defined in National Instrument 52-112 - Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures Disclosure (“NI 52-112”), may assist investors in assessing an investment in our shares as they provide additional insight into our performance. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) is a non-GAAP financial measure which represents profit (loss) adjusted for the effects of: profit (loss) from discontinued operations, occupancy costs calculated on a similar basis prior to the adoption of IFRS 16, finance costs (income), net - other, depreciation of property, plant and equipment and amortization of intangibles, depreciation of right-of-use assets, finance costs (income), net - leases, acquisition and related transition costs (income), unrealized foreign exchange (gains) losses, (gains) losses on disposal of right-of-use assets, property, plant and equipment and intangibles, share of (profit) loss of joint venture, impairment charges, non-cash share-based compensation costs, (gains) losses on equity derivatives net of mark-to-market adjustments on related restricted share units (“RSUs”) and deferred share units (“DSUs”) being hedged, (gains) losses on derivatives, restructuring costs (recovery), (gains) losses on investments, (gains) losses on hedging transactions, other costs or income of a non-operating and/or non-recurring nature, and income tax expense (recovery). Refer to the below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to profit (loss).

Adjusted EBITDA margin is a non-GAAP financial ratio which represents the percentage factor of Adjusted EBITDA to revenues. We use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin to evaluate the performance of our business, as well as when making decisions about the ongoing operations of the business and our ability to generate cash flows.

Adjusted Earnings (Loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure which represents profit (loss) adjusted for the effects of: profit (loss) from discontinued operations, occupancy costs calculated on a similar basis prior to the adoption of IFRS 16, depreciation of right-of-use assets, finance costs (income), net - leases, amortization of intangibles of acquired businesses, unrealized foreign exchange losses (gains), (gains) losses on disposal of right-of-use assets, property, plant and equipment and intangibles, non-cash share-based compensation costs, losses (gains) on equity derivatives net of mark-to-market adjustments on related RSUs and DSUs being hedged, interest accretion on contingent consideration payables, restructuring costs (recovery), losses (gains) on hedging transactions and interest expense (income) on swaps, acquisition and related transition costs (income), losses (gains) on investments, share of (profit) loss of joint venture, impairment charges, (gains) losses on derivatives, other costs or income of a non-operating and/or non-recurring nature, and the tax impact on these items. We use Adjusted Earnings (Loss) to facilitate the calculation of Adjusted Earnings (Loss) per Share (“Adjusted EPS”).

Adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial ratio calculated by dividing the Adjusted Earnings (Loss) by the basic weighted average number of shares adjusted for the effects of the weighted average number of restricted shares. We use Adjusted EPS to assess the performance of our business before the effects of the noted items, because they affect the comparability of our financial results and could potentially distort the analysis of trends in business performance. Refer to the below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EPS to profit (loss).

Constant currency is a non-GAAP financial measure that allows for current financial and operational performance to be understood against comparative periods without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates against the Canadian dollar. The financial results and non-GAAP measures presented at constant currency within this document are obtained by translating monthly results denominated in local currency (US dollars, British pound, Euro, Australian dollars, and other foreign currencies) at the foreign exchange rates of the comparable month.

Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio is a non-GAAP financial ratio which represents net debt, or total borrowings less cash and cash equivalents (net of short-term deposits), as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA. We use Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio as a measure of our ability to service our debt and other long-term obligations.

Other Measures

We also apply certain other measures to allow us to measure our performance against our operating strategy and against the results of our peers and competitors. Readers are cautioned that they are not standardized financial measurements in accordance with IFRS and may differ from similar computations as reported by other similar entities and, accordingly, may not be comparable to financial measures as reported by those entities. These other measures, which include supplementary financial measures as defined in NI 52-112, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any other measure of performance under IFRS.

Bookings is a supplementary financial measure for the Altus Analytics business segment. We define Bookings as the annual contract value for new sales of our recurring offerings (software, Appraisal Management and data subscriptions) and the total contract value for one-time engagements (consulting, training and due diligence). The contract value of renewals is excluded from this metric, with the exception of additional capacity or products purchased at the time of renewal. Organic Bookings is a supplementary financial measure which represents Bookings, excluding Bookings from business acquisitions that are not fully integrated, prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition. Recurring Bookings is a supplementary financial measure which represents the total annual contract value of new sales of our recurring offerings. We use Bookings, Organic Bookings, and Recurring Bookings as measures to track the performance and success of our sales initiatives, and as an indicator of future revenue growth.

Organic Revenue is a supplementary financial measure which represents revenue, consistent with IFRS 15, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, excluding the revenues from business acquisitions that are not fully integrated, prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition. We use Organic Revenue to evaluate to assess revenue trends in our business on a comparable basis versus the prior year, and as an indicator of future revenue growth.

Over Time Revenues is a supplementary financial measure consistent with IFRS 15, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, for the Altus Analytics business segment. Our Over Time Revenues are comprised of software subscription revenues recognized on an over time basis in accordance with IFRS 15, software maintenance revenues associated with our legacy licenses sold on perpetual terms, Appraisal Management revenues, and data subscription revenues. For greater clarity, this measure does not include revenue from distinct on-premise licenses which is recognized upfront at the point in time when the software is delivered to the customer. Organic Over Time Revenues represents Over Time Revenues, excluding the Over Time Revenues from business acquisitions that are not fully integrated, prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition. We use Over Time Revenues and Organic Over Time Revenues as measures to assess revenue trends in our business, and as an indicator of future revenue growth.

AE software maintenance retention rate is a supplementary financial measure calculated as a percentage of AE software maintenance revenue retained upon renewal; it represents the percentage of the available renewal opportunity in a fiscal period that renews, calculated on a dollar basis, excluding any growth in user count or product expansion. We use AE software maintenance retention rate as a measure to evaluate our success in retaining our AE software customers.

Cloud adoption rate is another measure that represents the percentage of the total AE user base contracted on the ARGUS Cloud platform. It includes both new AE cloud users as well as those who have migrated from our AE on-premise software. We use cloud adoption rate as a measure of our progress in transitioning the AE user base to our cloud-based platform, a key component of our overall product strategy.
