- Q4 2021 Revenue Now Estimated at High End of Guidance
- Black Friday/ Cyber Monday Sales Bolster Cash Receipts of $1.2 Million for the Month
DALLAS, TX – December X, 2021– Blackboxstocks Inc. (NASDAQ: BLBX) (“Blackbox”), a financial technology and social media hybrid platform offering real-time proprietary analytics for stock and options traders of all levels, today announced that the Company had a record month in November for both monthly recurring revenue and cash receipts.
The record cash receipts and revenue in November is expected to result in the Company hitting revenue projections at the high end of the previously projected range for the fourth quarter of 2021. Blackbox had previously projected record high revenue for Q4 2021 ranging between $1.51 million and $1.56 million, an increase of 45% – 50% when compared to revenue of $1.04 million for the same period in 2020.
Approximately $800,000, or 67%, of the $1.2 million of November’s cash receipts were from the sale of annual subscriptions. Revenue recognized from these sales will be amortized over the next twelve months. The significant sale of annual subscriptions in November resulted in the overall ratio of annual subscriptions increasing to 37% of the overall user base from 32%.
“We are very pleased to be closing out another year with record revenue and are especially excited to see the growth of annual subscriptions in our user base. We believe that this speaks volumes to our brand loyalty and increases the life-time value of our members, one of the most important metrics for a SaaS company like Blackbox,” said Gust Kepler, Chief Executive Officer.
