BOCA RATON, Fla., May 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Janover Inc. (Nasdaq: JNVR) (“Janover” or the “Company”), an AI-enabled platform for commercial real estate transactions, today provided a business update, and announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

Q1 2024 Key Financials

  • 17% sequential increase in revenue for Q1 2024 compared to Q4 2023;
  • 16% sequential increase in Small Business Administration (SBA) revenue for Q1 2024 compared to Q4 2023;
  • Revenue per transaction increased 10% year-over-year for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024;
  • 18% of the total revenue consisted of recurring subscription revenue in Q1 2024;
  • $3.9 million in cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2024; and
  • No material debt or other instruments on the balance sheet.

Blake Janover, CEO of Janover, stated, “I am pleased to report that despite significant dislocation in the commercial real estate market, we achieved more than 17% sequential growth for the first quarter of 2024. This was due in part to the strength of our SBA business line, which experienced a sequential increase of 16%, as well as our focus on pursuing larger loan opportunities to enhance revenue per transaction. This strategy has resulted in a 10% year-over-year increase in revenue per transaction for the quarter ending March 31, 2024. Perhaps most importantly, approximately 18% of our total revenue consisted of recurring revenue in the first quarter of 2024 from software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) subscriptions. The acquisition of Groundbreaker in November 2023, a recurring revenue B2B SaaS platform for commercial property professionals, coupled with the recent launch of Janover Insurance Group (“Janover Insurance"), positions us to significantly bolster recurring and contractual revenue for the remainder of fiscal 2024. We will continue to focus on improving revenue by focusing on larger loan opportunities and products per transaction, while moving towards more and more recurring, subscription, and contractual revenue offerings.”

“We are cultivating a robust array of premium, tech-powered product offerings aimed at delivering maximum value and experience to our customers and ultimately our shareholders. Our product mix is increasingly comprised of high margin, recurring revenue products, including Groundbreaker and Janover Insurance (which renews annually), supported by our cutting-edge AI enabled platform. Additionally, our digital media assets include dozens of websites, generating over 100 million impressions annually on Google and facilitating tens of billions of dollars in loan applications each year. Our core multifamily, commercial real estate, and SBA finance marketplace round out our comprehensive suite of services. All of this is enabled by a team that provides world-class customer service and a team of expert advisors. We believe we have established a meaningful foundation and a highly scalable infrastructure, which we believe positions us well for future growth and real value to our shareholders in the years to come. I appreciate everyone that is with us on the journey during what we know is a challenged market. We’ve built something special here and I’m incredibly excited about where our new business lines combined with our current offerings will take us in the years ahead.”

Financial Results

Revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, was approximately $411,000 compared to approximately $467,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. This decrease was primarily due to a reduction in closed loans compared to the same period in 2023. However, revenue per transaction increased 10% due to the increase in loan size. Additionally, 18% of our total revenue consisted of recurring revenue. Sales and marketing expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, were approximately $416,000, compared to approximately $294,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. The majority of the increase can be attributed to an increase in compensation and benefits expense during the three months ended March 31, 2024, due to an increase in employees, compared to the same period in 2023. Net loss was approximately $964,000, or $0.09 basic and diluted loss per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, compared to net loss of approximately $220,000, or $0.03 basic and diluted loss per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. Adjusted EBITDA loss was approximately $837,000, or $0.07 basic and diluted loss per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, compared to adjusted EBITDA loss of approximately $175,000, or $0.03 basic and diluted loss per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share are non-GAAP financial measures (defined below).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors and the market with additional information regarding our financial results, we have disclosed adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share, non-GAAP financial measures that we calculate as net loss excluding; stock-based compensation expense; depreciation and amortization; and other income. We have provided reconciliations of adjusted EBITDA to net loss and adjusted EBITDA per share to earnings per share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

We have included adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share, herein, because they are key measures used by our management and Board of Directors to evaluate our operating performance, generate future operating plans, and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparability across reporting periods by removing the effect of non-cash expenses. Accordingly, we believe that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA per share provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and Board of Directors.
