The quarterly numbers also reflect the fact that K2F’s current operations achieved net positive cashflows with a strong $660,000 positive cash flow during the June quarter.
This encouraging number can be explained by increased sales in the quarter as well as cash receipts from customers, which is evidenced by the reduction in receivables from the previous quarter.

The exercise of the options was partially underwritten (60%) by KS Capital Pty Ltd and pursuant to the underwriting agreement there was no discount to the option exercise price of $0.20.

New contract with Orano
K2fly recently signed a contract with Orano SA, formerly known as Areva SA.
Orano, which is a multinational nuclear fuel cycle company with uranium mining operations headquartered in France, signed a five-year contract to implement the RCubed resource governance solution.
The total contract value is more than A$300,000.
Contracts with mining clients
Since the acquisition of RCubed, K2F has won several contracts with significant global mining clients including Imerys, Glencore Canada, Nexa Resources, Rio Tinto, Newcrest, Goldfields, Newmont, Sibelco, Kinross Gold, Orano and South 32.
In addition, existing SaaS clients of K2F’s RCubed and Infoscope solutions extended their licensing agreements: Teck Resources for a period of three years, Westgold for five years and AngloGold Ashanti for another three years.
The company believes that the addition of Kinross Gold, Sibelco, Orano and South 32 in Q4 has been gratifying as it is evident that more and more mining companies appreciate the benefits of its SaaS offerings.
Based on recent discussions and negotiations, K2F is confident that there will be more new name client announcements to be made in 2020.
With the additional contracts in Q4 for K2F’s RCubed resource governance solution, net new annual recurring revenues for these contracts have exceeded $500,000.
This is the final milestone in the revenue acquisition performance milestones for RCubed, which were set to be achieved over a three-year period.
