“Today, STEER has announced Fiscal 2023 revenue of $17.7 million. While the Company’s focus on cost optimization and operational efficiency has resulted in a reduction of general and administration expenses, the spin-off of its B2B Marketplace, which accounted for over 80% of revenue in 2022, as well as high interest rates affecting the auto leasing industry and organizational changes have resulted in a significant decrease in revenues. As we reflect on the year, 2023 was undoubtedly a period of turbulence and change for our company. Despite these challenges, I am pleased to report that we have achieved significant growth in our Delivery as a Service business offering. This growth is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team in adapting to new market dynamics and seizing opportunities. Our strategic organizational changes have positioned us well for the future. Four months into 2024, we are confident in our ability to deliver value to our customers, shareholders, and employees, and we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead,” said Junaid Razvi, CEO of STEER.
