CHICAGO, Feb. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mattersight Corporation (NASDAQ:MATR), the pioneer in personality-based software applications, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017.

“Mattersight’s fourth quarter was marked by 9% growth in total revenues and 12% growth in subscription revenue versus the same period last year,” said Mattersight CEO Kelly Conway. “We set a new record for quarterly revenue, and saw continued improvement on the cost side resulting from a more favorable product mix and improved operating efficiency.”

Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Highlights

  • Bookings: Annual Contract Value (ACV) bookings were $2.8 million.
  • Total Revenue: Total revenue was $13.6 million.
  • Subscription Revenue: Total subscription revenue was $12.8 million.
  • Backlog: ACV in deployment was $8.9 million at the end of the quarter.
  • Gross Margin: Gross margin was 73%.

Fourth Quarter 2017 Business Highlights

  • Routing business: We saw continued revenue growth with our routing business, and fourth quarter bookings include a new customer that is a Fortune 100 financial services organization.
  • Patents: Recently issued patents include:
    • Chatbot Communication - Personality-based Chatbot and methods is an invention for a digital assistant, such as Siri, Alexa or Google Home, that will tailor its interactions with users based on their personalities.
    • Face-to-Face Analysis - Face-to-face communication analysis via mono recording system and methods will be able to predict a customer’s personality type just as Mattersight currently predicts personality types for callers into contact centers.
    • Fraud Detection - Two new patents, both titled Methods and Apparatus for Identifying Fraudulent Callers, cover new and more efficient ways of determining if an unknown speaker is a known fraudster. By leveraging biometrics and analyzing the speaker’s voiceprint, the invention instantly cross-references the speaker’s most distinctive features with a database containing the voiceprints of known fraudsters.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Mattersight's net loss was $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The Company realized positive "Adjusted EBITDA1" of $1.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. For a reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA, see the accompanying schedule.

1 Mattersight presents Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure that represents cash earnings performance, excluding the impact of non-cash expenses and expense reduction activities, because management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides investors with a better understanding of the results of Mattersight's operations. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA reflects Mattersight's resources available to invest in its business and strengthen its balance sheet. In addition, expense reduction activities can vary significantly between periods on the basis of factors that management does not believe reflect current-period operating performance. Although similar adjustments for expense reduction activities may be recorded in future periods, the size and frequency of these adjustments cannot be predicted. The Adjusted EBITDA measure should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
