Bridgeline Digital Financials are Falling at a Robust Pace
Bridgeline Digital Inc. didn’t perform according to expectations in the last couple of years. The company has been losing its revenue base at a significant rate, and its losses are widening especially in the last couple of periods. Bridgeline Digital develops web management software suites and business technology solutions.
Bridgeline Digital revenues plunged from $24 million in 2013 to $16 million in fiscal 2017; the downtrend in its revenues is likely to extend into this year.
The company reported a revenue of $7.7 million in the first six months of this year, down from the revenue of $8 million in the same period last year. Besides its revenue from web hosting, all of its other business segments are declining at a sharp pace. Its net loss jumped to $1.1 million in the first half of this year from a net loss of $938,000 in the first six months of fiscal 2017.
Outlook is Bleak
Although Bridgeline Digital Inc. announced a partnership with a full-service bank and the Massachusetts healthcare system, the company expects its fiscal 2018 revenues to continue to decline.
The digital company expects its fiscal 2018 revenue to stand close to $15.0 – $15.5 million, down from $16 million in the past year. It also expects an adjusted EBITDA between negative $500,000 for the full year in fiscal 2018. By and large, Bridgeline Digital shares are likely to remain under pressure due to poor financial numbers.
