Pareteum Launches Seven Customers into Service Production During March


Pareteum Launches Seven Customers into Service Production During March
Total 36-Month Contractual Revenue Backlog Grows to $938 Million

NEW YORK, NY, April 9, 2019 – Pareteum Corporation (Nasdaq: TEUM), a rapidly growing global cloud software communications platform company with a mission to connect every person and every(thing)TM, today announced it launched seven new customers into production during March 2019.

This brings to 15 the total number of customers deployed into commercial service during the three months to March 31st, 2019.

The announcement caps a first quarter during which Pareteum grew its 36-month Contractual Revenue Backlog (36MCRB) of signed sales agreements to a new total of $938 million.  

Strong growth in new sales transactions reflects the recent strategic acquisitions of Artilium and iPass. These acquisitions have deepened Pareteum’s capabilities and created a rich seam of cross- and up-sell opportunities with existing customers, as well as significantly expanding the overall addressable market.

The seven new customers now harnessing Pareteum to power their commercial services include:

  • A US service provider using the Pareteum cloud platform and network to provide mobility services, including the capability for provisioning multiple numbers, to consumer and enterprise markets
  • A provider of mobility and security solutions for families, utilizing the API interface to Pareteum’s cloud platform and network to deliver connectivity to customers buying their specialist devices in the US market
  • A UK-based service provider using Pareteum’s Mobile Virtual Network Operator platform to launch a social influencer-driven mobility offering
  • A fast-growing US mobile virtual network operator using the API interface to the Pareteum platform to power highly flexible, no-contract connectivity services to the consumer market
  • A provider of mobile engagement and sponsored data solutions to B2C brands and mobile operators which is using Pareteum’s network to support global services
  • A US mobile virtual network operator using Pareteum’s cloud platform and network capabilities to deliver contract-free mobility services
  • A UK-based mobile virtual network operator which is migrating its existing operation to the Pareteum cloud platform

Pareteum’s Executive Chairman and Principal Executive Officer Hal Turner commented, “We have delivered a phenomenal first quarter, powering innovative new ‘Communications Re-imagined’ service launches from a wide array of customers.  Our ability to help customers break into new markets fast, without the need for heavy investment in infrastructure, means we quickly become strategic partners, driving excellent opportunities for further up-sell.”

Vic Bozzo, Chief Executive Officer at Pareteum added, “This past quarter has seen us build significant additional momentum for our 36-Month Contractual Revenue Backlog. As we move into the next quarter we will continue to drive hard on both execution and new sales.”

36-Month Contractual Revenue Backlog Definition: 
36-Month Contractual Revenue Backlog (36MCRB), is a Non-GAAP financial measure. It is measured on a forward-looking 36-month snapshot view, monthly, and is generated by the Company’s Communications Services Providers, Enterprises, and IoT customers who use communication as a service platform products and services from the company’s portfolio. The Pareteum multi-year Software-as-a-Service agreements include service establishment and implementation fees, guaranteed minimum monthly recurring fees, as well as contractually scheduled subscribers (connections), in some cases including subscriber (connections) usage, during the term of the agreement, and, their resulting monthly recurring contractual revenue. There can be no assurances that we reach the total contract revenue backlog. Timing of revenue recognition may vary from actual results.
