TORONTO, March 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VitalHub Corp. (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (TSX:VHI) (OTCQX:VHIBF) announced today it has filed its Consolidated Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis report for the year ended December 31, 2023, with the Canadian securities authorities. These documents may be viewed under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com.

“As VitalHub closes another quarter, it’s with a great sense of achievement that we reflect on the strides we’ve made. Our Q4 2023 revenue reached $13,603,419, marking a 20% increase over the same period last year. This growth underscores the successful execution of our strategy and the unwavering dedication of our team. Q4 gross profit as a percentage of revenue improved to 83%, up from 82% in the prior year quarter, demonstrating our ability to enhance margins while expanding our service offerings. This is a reflection of our growing recurring revenue base to 83% of revenue compared to 77% in the prior year quarter. We achieved Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) of $44,573,739, a testament to our robust business model and the trust our clients place in our solutions. ARR increased 23% over the same period last year. The bulk of this ARR growth, $6,387,730 or 18%, was organic, $1,100,000 or 3% was from acquisitions, and $938,859 or 3% was from currency fluctuations. Significantly, our EBITDA for Q4 surged by 536% to $2,992,273, and our adjusted EBITDA (Non-IFRS measure) saw a 62% increase to $3,985,553. These figures are a clear indication of our operational efficiency and the scalability of our platform. Notably, our net income before taxes stood at $1,984,246, illustrating a substantial improvement from the previous year and underscoring our fiscal health and the effectiveness of our growth strategies,” said Dan Matlow, Chief Executive Officer of VitalHub.

Our cash position improved, with $33,480,018 on hand, thanks to our disciplined approach to cash management and operational excellence. This solid financial foundation empowers us to continue our investment in innovation, pursue strategic acquisitions, and further our mission to transform healthcare technology. As we look to the future, our focus remains on driving sustainable growth, expanding our market reach, and delivering exceptional value to our clients and shareholders.
