Volpara Health Technologies Ltd (ASX: VHT) has revealed its quarterly numbers to the market, how will the Volpara share price respond?

Its software is used for screening clinics to provide feedback on breast density, compression, dose and quality. Its VolparaEnterprise business provides role-specific dashboards and wide-ranging benchmarking analytics to help clinics manage their business more efficiently.

Volpara’s March 2019 Quarter

Volpara reported that annual recurring revenue (ARR) at the end of its FY19 fourth quarter had reached NZ$6.63 million, which was 86% higher compared to a year ago.

Volpara software is now used in 7.1% of US women screened for breast cancer, which is a nice achievement considering the population of the US.

Pleasingly for Volpara and shareholders, the average price per woman screened (in other words ‘ARPU’) in the US for the base VolparaEnterprise product of US$2.17 was 37% higher than FY18.

The cancellation churn remained low at less than 2% of ARR.

The total number of VolparaEnterprise customers reached 128 at the end of the company’s 2019 financial year, up 124% from 57 at the end of FY18.

Volpara’s CEO, Dr Ralph Highnam, spoke of further growth expectations in FY20:

We’re expecting ARR growth to be 50% to 80%, the percentage of US women screened using a Volpara service to exceed 10%, and a strong gross margin to remain above 80%.”
