Q4 2022 Operational Highlights
Continued to advance the completion of the company’s DataLogiq (DLQ) business with a Nasdaq- traded SPAC which was announced in September 2022. Logiq and the SPAC are processing comments received from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding the merger and related Form S-4 filing. Logiq is also finalizing the audit of DLQ’s 2022 financial results on a stand-alone basis, which will be added to the Form S-4 filing as an amended filing upon completion.DLQ was awarded a managed services contract valued at $2 million to $3 million per month, the largest such contract in Logiq’s history, which contributed to the approximately $7 million in revenues DLQ booked in the fourth quarter of 2022.Formed a strategic alliance with MediaJel, a leading marketing platform primarily serving regulated industries. Logiq’s consumer targeting and acquisition capabilities has been enhanced by access to MediaJel’s consumer audience engine and programmatic digital marketing platform. Enables clients to deploy marketing campaigns that reach a wider yet more targeted consumer audience.Further penetrated home improvement vertical market via both the residential and commercial EV charger installation market as well as the roofing market by deploying the company’s on-demand digital marketing platform that provides clients efficient, enhanced service.
In April 2023, the company acquired Park Place Payments, an award-winning fintech company delivering innovative merchant payment solutions and adjacent financial services to SMBs through a nationally distributed local sales force. Park Place’s annualized transaction volume currently totals more than $180 million, from which it expects to generate more than $5 million in revenue and positive cash flow this year. The additional revenue increased Logiq’s annualized revenue run rate to more than $45 million.
“Our strong sequential and year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter exceeded expectations, and demonstrated the momentum being generated from the synergies between the Battle Bridge acquisition and our existing DataLogiq digital consumer acquisition platform,” stated Logiq CEO, Brent Suen. “Increasing the depth of our expertise and expanding the range of services has enabled us to better compete for more and larger market opportunities.
“Over the course of the year, we completed the integration of Battle Bridge along with a challenging restructuring plan designed to better position us for growth, organically and through acquisition. This involved completing the spinout of the GoLogiq business. Our strategy for this spinout has gone well, with GoLogiq recently completing a transformative major acquisition. We anticipate our remaining minor ownership and those Logiq shareholders who received GoLogiq shares to be great beneficiaries of this progress.
“For our continuing operations, by late November we began to see strong traction with our growth strategy with a major client win. This helped begin the year at an estimated annualized revenue run rate of more than $40 million. Now with the integration costs of Battle Bridge behind us and everything coming up to speed, we see our top and bottom line continuing to improve.
“We continue to see the industry environment presenting accretive M&A opportunities for Logiq. This includes companies involved in Adtech, direct-to-consumer sales, specialized digital advertising, and performance marketing. All are generating significant revenue growth and are breakeven to profitable. We have been evaluating several potential acquisitions that are at various stages that could significantly strengthen our platform.
“We see our recent acquisition of Park Place as just the beginning of our evolution into a company of direct-to-consumer and B2B brands that are complementary to and empowered by the industry’s most powerful AI-driven digital advertising and marketing platform. Through these multiple initiatives that will build upon an already fast-growing business, we expect the additional revenue we’ll generate from Park Place to reach $15 million or more over the next year.
“In 2022, we launched a strategic initiative to enter regulated industry verticals. This resulted in a strategic alliance with MediaJel. The partnership gained us access to MediaJel’s consumer intelligence platform and channel reach, allowing us to strengthen our capabilities for consumer targeting and new customer acquisition. We are continuing the process of integrating MediaJel’s platform with our AI-powered programmatic advertising platform, Rebel AI, which enables brands and agencies to securely transact media and activate first-party data. We anticipate the results of this integration to enhance our revenue generation and expand our gross margins beginning in the current quarter.
“MediaJel represents an ideal partner with domain expertise in a regulated industry, solid customer base, and new targeting tools for customer acquisition and engagement. Together, we expect to become a key player in the cannabis marketing and advertising space.
“We are making good progress toward the completion of our previously announced publicly-traded SPAC merger with our DataLogiq operations and remain confident in completing it in the near future. As a stand-alone company generating strong growth from the start, we anticipate many great things ahead for DataLogiq.
“At the beginning of this year, we appointed Chris Andrews as our new chief operating officer, succeeding John MacNeil who was appointed to the new role of SVP of mergers and acquisitions. Chris brings to us more than 20 years of leadership experience and a talent for unlocking revenue opportunities. As a former Ogilvy Health and WPP chief technology and information officer, he has an extensive record of great achievement, including creating $150+ million revenue streams through technology innovation.
“For 2023, we anticipate Chris helping us lead additional transformational events designed to support further growth, and as we continue to target accretive mergers or acquisitions that would position us to scale to our goal of more than $100 million in annual revenue and deliver increasing shareholder value.”
