Sankar Narayan, CEO and MD at SiteMinder said: "The most pleasing aspect of our FY22 performance has been the team's successful execution of our ambitious new initiatives, laying the foundations for SiteMinder to scale and sustain high organic growth. Our product and other initiatives, including the acquisition of GuestJoy, enhance our growth opportunities with additional services to existing customers as well as expanding into new customer segments. With the lifetime value of our customers in Q4FY22 30% above pre-COVID levels, despite global travel still recovering, our initiatives are boosting customer and shareholder value. Our leading multilingual commerce platform and unrivalled global go-to-market capability, provide us confidence to reiterate our growth guidance and in addition communicate our expectation to become free cash flow neutral by Q4FY24 on a quarterly basis. I want to again thank all our staff, partners and customers for the resilience and the ingenuity shown over the last couple of years."
