Annualized Recurring Revenue ("ARR")2 for the three months ended December 31, 2022 and 2021 was $290.2 million and $240.4 million, respectively, representing a period-to-period growth rate of 20.7%.

Represents a non-GAAP financial measure. For additional information (including reconciliation information), see the attached schedules to this release.


Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR) is the annualized revenue derived from software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) arrangements, transaction-based software-revenue, software maintenance, recurring software-based services, payments revenue and other recurring revenue sources within the quarter. This excludes contracts that are not recurring or are one-time in nature. The Company focuses on ARR because it helps i3 Verticals to assess the health and trajectory of the business. ARR does not have a standardized definition and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. It should be reviewed independently of revenue, and it is not a forecast. The active contracts at the end of a reporting period used in calculating ARR may or may not be extended or renewed by the Company's customers.


Software and related services revenue includes the sale of licenses, subscriptions, installation and implementation services, and ongoing support specific to software.

Greg Daily, Chairman and CEO of i3 Verticals, commented, “The first quarter of our fiscal year 2023 produced fantastic results and we are proud to share them with the market. Revenue and adjusted EBITDA continued to set records and annualized recurring revenue2 continued to outpace other revenue streams.

“This quarter includes the first results of operations for Celtic. We are happy to report that they are already going to market with BIS, and together we have a very compelling offering to serve departments of transportation across the United States and Canada. We are also excited about the previously announced public sector acquisition of AccuFund. Their fund accounting software solutions are a perfect strategic fit with our other solutions in that vertical. We expect to continue our M&A efforts and find opportunities to compound value for our shareholders.”

Assumes an effective pro forma tax rate of 25.0% (non-GAAP). With respect to the “Revised 2023 Outlook” above, reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA and pro forma adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure on a forward-looking basis is not available without unreasonable efforts. This inability results from the inherent difficulty in forecasting generally and quantifying certain projected amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations. In particular, sufficient information is not available to calculate certain adjustments required for such reconciliations, including changes in the fair value of contingent consideration, income tax expense of i3 Verticals, Inc. and equity-based compensation expense. The Company expects these adjustments may potentially have a significant impact on future GAAP financial results.
