Encouraging start to the financial year
It’s an encouraging start to the financial year to see several noteworthy wins in every geographic region and across every product portfolio. This was particularly evident in the Americas region, where we consistently see strong growth, contributing 55% of New ARR for the quarter as macroeconomic drivers, including the driving theme of "Environmental Justice” which increasingly puts Envirosuite’s advanced environmental intelligence technology solutions front and centre in addressing the challenges of the harmonious growth of industries and communities.
The global aviation industry is undergoing a period of heightened investment against the backdrop of community and environmental accountability, and our market leadership position means we are the trusted innovator and provider of environmental intelligence in aviation infrastructure. Airports are striving to transparently engage with community stakeholders using high-quality noise data as part of their Noise Action Plans, and we are pleased to expand our relationship with a key aviation customer in the UK to include multiple instances of our innovative InsightFull community engagement platform during the quarter.
We are excited to welcome several new EVS Industrial customers across all four focus sectors, including premium copper producer Capstone Copper in the US and a leading industrial enterprise operating across the entire oil shale value chain in Europe. Customers such as these that operate multiple facilities are strategically important for Envirosuite as part of our ‘land, expand and scale’ strategy.
In EVS Water, the Company has signed an Enterprise Agreement with Ion Exchange, a leading water treatment solutions company in India, the world’s most populous country and a top opportunity for our technology. Under the Enterprise Agreement’s proof-of-concept phase, Ion Exchange will use EVS Water technology to produce digital twins, run simulations, and help optimise treatment processes initially for three plants, followed by an anticipated rollout to additional plants under the phased agreement.”

Significant expansion with key airports customer in the UK, which will see Envirosuite’s innovative community engagement solution InsightFull delivered to multiple airports.
InsightFull is a web-based community engagement portal that draws the complex noise and operational data from a customer’s existing EVS Aviation platform and presents it in easy-to- understand formats for the community.
Strong rebound in Aviation demand continues, with several customers across the globe expanding their solutions to improve complaints management, community engagement and reporting.
Flagship Envirosuite event ‘FORUM23’ held in Europe and North America, attended by 87 users and decision-makers representing 55 customers, generating strong pipeline and strengthening the deep relationships the Company proudly holds with its Aviation customers.
Churn LTM remains steady at 10.1% (0.6% when excluding one-off FY23 Q3 churn event).
A key aviation customer in the UK
The key aviation customer recently published its comprehensive Noise Action Plan, setting out its strategy to mitigate the impact of aircraft noise over the next five years. A key piece of this plan will be facilitating a two-way dialogue with communities around changes to the UK Civil Aviation Authority’s CAP1616 Airspace Change process, and what that means for the communities around the customer’s airport sites. Engaging the local community in the process is critically important and requires presenting current and expected noise and track data dynamically and intuitively to stakeholders. To help facilitate this critical stakeholder communication piece, the customer has selected Envirosuite’s innovative web-based InsightFull community engagement platform.
InsightFull extends the functionality of the customer’s existing ANOMS and WebTrak services at each of the airport sites, presenting comprehensive noise and flight track data to members of the public in easy- to-understand formats. The dynamic nature of InsightFull means that the public user will only be presented with information and data that is specific to their location, creating a more meaningful, relevant, tailored experience for every community member accessing the portal.

During the quarter the Company had end of life (EoL) contracts impacting ARR. These EoL contracts were for concluding construction projects and a third-party monitoring arrangement at low gross margin to the Company.
New oil shale customer in Europe
Envirosuite won a strategically significant new customer in Europe during the quarter – a large shale oil producer with operations across the oil shale value chain.
Fugitive odour emissions are common during the shale oil production process which can impact surrounding communities and the environment and result in community complaints and regulatory pressure. Investigating complaints is time-intensive and often the investigations into the complaint sources are inconclusive which can further deteriorate community and regulator relationships.
Committed to proactively managing these impacts, the customer selected Envirosuite after conducting a competitive tender process.
EVS Industrial’s Omnis solution will provide the customer with significant operational insights and analysis capabilities, allowing them to rapidly identify odour sources both within and outside the facility, understand observed and forecasted emission patterns and validate odour complaints. Daily odour impact risk forecasts will give the customer operational flexibility by understanding the potential impacts on neighbouring communities ahead of time, so that it can adjust operating plans, proactively engage with stakeholders, and demonstrate compliance with operating license conditions, each of which is a critical piece in the growth and sustainability of the customer’s operations.
New ARR of $0.3m bringing Total ARR to $1.6m, up 46% on PCP.
