Monica Iancu, MIND CTI’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We continue to invest in new technologies mainly to support the 5G deployments and are expanding our platforms to better support digital transformations. One such expansion that we developed over the last two years is the e-commerce module and we have already started implementing it at our first customer this quarter. To succeed in the age of digital services, both carriers and enterprises need fast and agile ways of digital transformation. Our ongoing investment in maintaining up-to-date technology and infrastructure ensures increased security for the customers running our platforms. We understand our customers’ businesses, as well as their needs and challenges. We have the teams and the expertise to provide timely upgrades and customizations required to support our customers in the ever-changing marketplace and are pleased with our execution of ongoing projects.
“The decrease in our revenues was expected, since as previously announced, the unprecedented growth we encountered in 2021, in our messaging segment, was temporary in nature.
“It is part of our strategy to pursue acquisitions in order to enhance our market position, and, as previously announced, we continue to actively seek potential acquisition opportunities.”
New e-commerce Module
MIND announced today also the release of its new MINDBill e-commerce platform.
MINDBill e-commerce is a digital e-commerce platform, designed for the telecom industry. It is pre-integrated with the MIND CRM, Self Care, product catalog and inventory, to cover full end-to-end sale cycles for new and existing customers. It has a self admin content management to edit and update the information on the e-commerce platform and provides ready-to-use templates and ordering flows and offers white labelling customization. MINDBill e-commerce gives customers an end-to-end shopping experience, from product selection and secure payment to order fulfillment.
This quarter we had multiple follow-on orders, including an upgrade at an existing MIND customer since 2006. With the evolution of its business over more than a decade ago and the need for compatibility with the latest technology infrastructure, this veteran customer has selected to migrate to the latest MINDBill version 10 solution.
The MINDBill solution has been a pillar supporting this customer in growing its business from scratch to more than two hundred thousand postpaid subscribers. The MINDBill version 10 is based on the latest infrastructure OS versions and Oracle DB which ensures a future proof compatibility as the industry evolves. This, along with the built in scalability and enhancements across all of the modules that are designed to adapt to the dynamic marketing requirements of the service provider, has convinced this customer to continue its long standing partnership with MIND.
Europe represented 51% (including the Message Mobile and GTX revenues in Germany that represented 38%), the Americas represented 43%, and the rest of the world represented 6% of total revenues.
Customer care and billing software totaled $2.9 million, or 51% of total revenues, enterprise messaging and payment solutions were $2.2 million, or 38% of total revenues and enterprise call accounting software totaled $0.6 million, or 11% of total revenues.
Licenses totaled $0.2 million, or 3% of total revenues, while maintenance and additional services were $5.5 million, or 97% of total revenues.
As previously announced, the Board declared on March 10, 2022 a gross dividend of $0.26 per share with tax being withheld at a rate of 22%.
The dividend of approximately $5.2 million, is presented in our balance sheet as of March 31, 2022 among other payables. The net dividend was distributed to our shareholders and withholding taxes were paid in April 2022.
