XPLRA: Xplora records significant ARPU growth from monetizing Value-Added Services after introducing the new Connect Premium mobile subscriber plan

08:54 / 8 June 2023 Xplora Technologies Press release

Oslo, 8 June 2023: Xplora Technologies AS ("Xplora") is proud to announce 20%
ARPU growth from customers selecting the new Connect Premium mobile subscriber
plans compared to Connect Basic, with a significant increase in user engagement
and activity level. From the beginning of this year through May, 33% of new
subscribers purchased the new and higher priced Xplora Connect Premium plan,
including full access to the children's activity platform.

Entering 2023, Xplora rebranded its service offering from an independent
Connectivity service and separate value-added service offering (formerly known
as Goplay), into one proposition with two different price points, Basic and
Premium. This strategic shift has accelerated our growth in Annual Recurring
Revenue (ARR), reflecting the financial viability of the restructured offering.

For the first time, Xplora has reached 500,000* monthly active users (MAUs) of
the Xplora smartwatch, with a total of 1.5 million registered app accounts
(counting both parents and family app users), highlighting the company's
innovative approach and user trust. In addition, Xplora has seen a substantial
rise in activity level, counted through our smartwatches, after the launch of
Xplora Connect Premium. Our recorded data from the past 30 days demonstrates
that access to Connect Premium inspires children to walk 67% more, with an
average of 15k steps when using Connect Premium services. This shows an
improvement from an average of 9k steps without Connect Premium services.

"We are proud to see the significant growth in user engagement and activity
following the strategic decision to merge our two services into Xplora Connect,
with Basic and Premium price points. The insight of this decision has been
affirmed not only by the market's positive response, but also by the financial
results we are already seeing" says Sten Kirkbak, CEO and founder of Xplora.
