Fiscal Year 2021 Business Highlights
Venzee has seen quarterly revenue growth since 2019 and expects that trend to progress as the Company continues efforts to scale its customer base and enhance its platform.
Throughout fiscal 2021, Venzee made improvements to its technology, expanding its partnership base and Mesh Connectors™, while laying the foundation to meet its revenue growth goals.
The Company appointed two new members to the Board, including Marc Bertrand – former President and CEO of Mega Brands – and Dr. John Sviokla, a senior partner at Manifold Group, artificial intelligence expert and former Chief Marketing Officer for the US market segment of professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers ("PWC").
Throughout the twelve-months ended December 31, 2021, the Company also received strong support from its shareholder base with it exercising over 22 million warrants and providing more than $1.8 million of additional capital.
In August 2021, the Company announced a new partnership with a major US-based specialty retailer serving the furniture and homeware market. The partnership helped Venzee further scale its brand and retail client base, giving Venzee access to more than 200 of the retailer's key brand suppliers. The new partnership was established after one of Venzee's brand clients promoted the Company's services to this furniture and homeware retailer.
In late August 2021, Venzee announced a new partnership with a Product Information Management (PIM) and Digital Asset Management (DAM) provider. The new partner has a customer base of more than 700 brands which Venzee will seek to leverage to further scale its client base, grow revenue, and sell a higher volume of Mesh Connectors™ through exposure to large global brands.
In September 2021, the Company announced the addition of a new home improvement brand to its client base. Venzee activated two retail connections for the brand to two of the largest North American home improvement retailers. The Company also announced an 87% increase in product data submissions from consumer brands since July 2021. This increase resulted from growing Mesh Connector™ sales and the velocity with which the Company's AI platform sends product data from brands to retailers.
In October 2021, the Company announced an upfront revenue-based contract with a leading global provider of digital product content solutions. The new client, a leading provider of retail solutions to major retail brands, is trusted globally to accurately convey product information for tens of millions of retail goods across major consumer markets in North America, the European Union, and Asia-Pacific regions. As part of the client's initial onboarding, a set of multinational brands — using a single data model — mapped to and activated several retail Mesh Connectors™, demonstrating Venzee's ability to offer rapid Mesh Connector™ deployment across a broad, global base of brands.
Also in October 2021, the Company announced a new revenue-generating contract with a California-based children's bag and accessories brand. Initially, the brand purchased a single Mesh Connector™ to a retailer on the Venzee platform. The retailer serves the home goods and apparel sector through some 1,500 store locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. Following their initial purchase, the brand engaged Venzee sales and contracted for additional retail channels in the home goods retail sector. Under the agreement, the client plans to activate a number of Venzee's Mesh Connectors™ over the next 12 months.
In November 2021, the Company announced a new contract with a leading manufacturer of kitchen and bath furniture and related products sold through major home improvement retailers across North America. This recognized furniture brand chose Venzee over other providers because its Mesh Connector™ technology and AI platform deliver rapid, reliable results at scaled speeds, with high accuracy and an intelligent verification process that other providers can not offer.
