Reasons For Nuix Share Price to sink on ASX

Nuix has been on the wrong end of several unfortunate, but controversial news recently, and the NXL share price volatility has shown. On Monday, NXL shares slid again by 17.7% as the company downgraded their full year guidance following recent developments in its new and existing customer contract revenue pipeline. Revenue was downgraded from $180-$185 million range to $173-$182 million. The annualised contract value guidance fell as well from $168-$177 million range to $165-$172 million, while EBITDA remained unchanged at $64.6 – $66.6 million for FY21. These downgrades are compared to the previously provided guidance back in April 2021.

Several key factors have affected the revised forecasts including the expected timing of closure of some upsell opportunities and new potential customers. In particular, there remains uncertainty in relation to both the structure and timing of a small number of large customer upsell opportunities, including whether these may result in multi-year deals during FY21. It looks like the EBITDA guidance remains unchanged because of Nuix cutting costs during the period.

Nuix shares closed at $2.76 a share on Monday, sliding over 75% in 2021.
