Initial 2022 Revenue Guidance Set Between $16.5 Million and $18 Million Based on Current Backlog
JACKSONVILLE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 28, 2022 / Duos Technologies Group, Inc. ('Duos' or the 'Company') (NASDAQ:DUOT) through its operating subsidiary Duos Technologies, Inc., a provider of vision based analytical solutions, reported select preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021.
Based on preliminary, unaudited results, the Company expects total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021 to be $3.75 million, in line with the same year-ago period. Management also estimates that the Company's Q4 net loss will be in the range of $250,00 to $295,000 compared with net loss of $426,000 for Q4 in fiscal year 2020, an improvement of at least 31%. This improvement in operating results is expected to continue in 2022 for the full year.
Duos previously issued total revenue guidance for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 to be at least $8 million. Based on preliminary fourth quarter results, the Company now expects total revenue to be approximately $8.29 million.
'Our preliminary results for 2021 reflect the successful implementation of the first steps in our long-term strategic roadmap despite facing significant challenges during the year, including customer execution delays and supply-chain disruptions. Our Q4 revenues were made possible by the tireless efforts of our whole team, all of whom worked through the holidays to meet various project completion deadlines,' commented Duos CEO Chuck Ferry. 'We've entered 2022 with significant operating and sales momentum. Based on our current projections, we are anticipating significant revenue growth in the coming year and steady progress towards profitability along the way. Like the rest of our industry and many businesses throughout the global economy, we expect to continue dealing with supply chain issues. Importantly, we are taking the necessary steps now to mitigate the impact to our ability to execute for our customers, partners and stakeholders in the future.'
Duos is entering 2022 with a strong backlog of business. During the last quarter, the Company was successful in closing several high-value contracts in the rail segment and is now also developing offerings to inspect other types of moving vehicles such as trucks. At this time the Company is issuing preliminary revenue guidance between $16.5 million and $18 million for fiscal year 2022, based on its current backlog, a more than doubling of revenues year over year.
Final financial results remain subject to audit and will be reported in the Company's 10-K, which is expected to be filed prior to the end of March annual deadline. Further updates, including additional commentary relating to the Company's results and outlook, will be issued in March.
