CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Form 10-Q”) contains forward-looking statements, within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, relating to our operations, expected financial position, and other business matters that are based on our current expectations, assumptions, and projections with respect to the future, and are not a guarantee of performance. Forward-looking statements provide management’s current expectations of future events based on certain assumptions and include any statement that does not directly relate to any historical or current fact. Forward-looking statements may include words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “budgeted,” “contemplate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “guidance,” “may,” “outlook,” “plan,” “projection,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would” and other words, the negative forms of such words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other important factors that could cause our actual results, performance or achievements or industry results, to differ materially from historical results or any future results, performance or achievements expressed, suggested, or implied by such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to statements about:
General economic uncertainty in global markets and unfavorable economic conditions, including inflation, rising interest rates, recession, foreign exchange fluctuations and supply-chain issues;
Geopolitical conditions, including developing or ongoing conflicts;
Our ability to attract new business and retain key clients;
Our profitability based on our utilization, pricing and managing costs;
The potential for our clients or potential clients to consolidate;
Our clients deciding to enter into or further expand their insourcing activities and current trends toward outsourcing services may reverse;
Our ability to manage our international operations, particularly in the Philippines, Jamaica, Pakistan and Nicaragua;
Our ability to anticipate, develop and implement information technology solutions that keep pace with evolving industry standards and changing client demands;
Our ability to recruit, engage, motivate, manage and retain our global workforce;
Our ability to comply with applicable laws and regulations, including those regarding privacy, data protection and information security, employment and anti-corruption;
The effect of cyberattacks or cybersecurity vulnerabilities on our information technology systems; and
Our ability to realize the anticipated strategic and financial benefits of our relationship with Amazon;
The impact of tax matters, including new legislation and actions by taxing authorities.
We derive many of our forward-looking statements from our operating budgets and forecasts, which are based upon many detailed assumptions. We caution that it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors, and it is impossible for us to anticipate all factors that could affect our actual results. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations, or cautionary statements, are disclosed under Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023. All written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us, or persons acting on our behalf, are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements as well as other cautionary statements that are made from time to time in our other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and public communications. You should evaluate all forward-looking statements made in this Form 10-Q in the context of these risks and uncertainties.
We caution you that the important factors referenced above may not contain all of the factors that are important to you. In addition, we cannot assure you that we will realize the results or developments we expect or anticipate or, even if substantially realized, that they will result in the consequences or affect us or our operations in the way we expect. The forward-looking statements included in this Form 10-Q are made only as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by law.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)
(in thousands, except per share amounts)
1.     OVERVIEW AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
OVERVIEW
IBEX Limited (“IBEX” and together with its subsidiaries, the “Company,” “ibex,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) was incorporated on February 28, 2017 in Hamilton, Bermuda. Our registered office in Bermuda is Crawford House, 50 Cedar Avenue, Hamilton HM 11, Bermuda. We are a “controlled company” within the meaning of the rules of Nasdaq, with The Resource Group International Limited (“TRGI”) being our controlling shareholder. TRG Pakistan Limited holds a controlling interest in TRGI. On August 7, 2020, the Company was admitted to trade on the Nasdaq Global Market under the ticker symbol “IBEX.”
The Company is an end-to-end provider of technology-enabled customer lifecycle experience (“CLX”) solutions. Through the Company’s integrated CLX platform, a comprehensive portfolio of solutions is offered to optimize customer acquisition, engagement, expansion and experience for clients. The Company leverages sophisticated technology and proprietary analytics, in combination with its global footprint and business process outsourcing expertise, to protect and enhance clients’ brands.
Our services cover three main areas:
ibex Connect: Our Connect business lies at the core of our offerings and generates the majority of the Company’s revenue. This business unit delivers differentiated customer service (assisting our clients’ customers with information about our clients and their products or services), technical support (providing specialized teams to provide information, assistance and technical guidance to our clients’ customers on a specific product or service), revenue generation (upselling and cross selling) and other value-added outsourced back office services (finance and accounting, marketing support, sales operations, and human resources administration) to our clients. We deploy these capabilities through a true omni-channel CX model, which integrates voice, email, chat, SMS, social media and other communication applications.
ibex Digital: Our ibex Digital suite of solutions works with consumer-facing businesses to help them build, grow and scale technology-driven customer acquisition solutions, while helping drive digital transformation. We offer digital marketing, e-commerce technology, and platform solutions for our clients, helping them build new customer acquisition channels, increase acquired customers, and often do both at a reduced cost.
ibex CX: Our CX business measures, monitors and manages our clients’ holistic customer experiences. By offering a 360-degree CX approach, our clients can harness the power of data and customer feedback to differentiate themselves within today’s “customer expectation economy.” We enable our clients to improve retention of their customers, identify and manage service issues in real time, predict future behavior and outcomes, derive impact analysis scenarios and assign “action plans” throughout the enterprise.
Operating segments
An operating segment is defined as a component of a company for which separate financial information is available and which is regularly evaluated by the chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) for the purpose of making decisions regarding resource allocation and performance assessment. The Company’s CODM is the chief executive officer (“CEO”). The Company’s CODM reviews consolidated financial results to make decisions, allocate resources and assess performance. Therefore, the Company has determined that it operates in a single operating and reportable segment.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of presentation and principles of consolidation
The Company’s interim consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and include the financial results of all wholly-owned subsidiaries. When the Company does not have majority ownership in an entity but exerts significant influence over that entity, the Company accounts for the entity under the equity method of accounting. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

These unaudited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023 (the “Annual Report”) as filed with the SEC. There have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies described in the Annual Report that have had a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related notes.

In the opinion of the Company, these unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair statement of its financial position as of March 31, 2024, its results of operations, comprehensive income, and shareholders’ equity for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, and cash flows for the nine months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023. The consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2023, was derived from the audited annual financial statements included in the Annual Report.
Use of estimates
The preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements. Significant items subject to such estimates and assumptions include useful lives for property and equipment; impairment of long-lived assets, operating lease assets and liabilities, goodwill, and other intangible assets; allowance for credit losses; valuation allowances for deferred tax assets and other receivables; fair value of share-based compensation, warrants, and derivatives, and legal provisions. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and other assumptions it believes are reasonable, including the use of outside experts as necessary, and updates these estimates on an ongoing basis and as new events occur, more experience is acquired and/or more information is obtained. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates.
Concentration of credit risk
The Company is exposed to credit risk in the normal course of business, primarily related to accounts receivable and derivative instruments. Historically, the losses related to credit risk have been immaterial. The Company regularly monitors its credit risk to mitigate losses. The Company evaluates the creditworthiness of its clients prior to and throughout the life of the client relationship. The Company does not believe it is exposed to more than a nominal amount of credit risk in its derivative instruments as all of its counterparties are investment-grade financial institutions.

Property and equipment

Property and equipment and assets leased under financing leases are carried at cost at the acquisition date and are depreciated using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives.

Property and equipment assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability is assessed by a comparison of the carrying amount of the asset to the estimated future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If estimated future undiscounted net cash flows are less than the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recognized to the extent its carrying value exceeds its estimated fair value.

Table of Contents



During quarter ended March 31, 2024, we determined that the estimated fair value for certain assets at two of our delivery locations no longer exceeded their carrying value. The fair value of these assets was based on various assumptions including our ability to redeploy and utilize the assets at other sites. We recognized impairment losses related to leasehold improvements, furniture & fixtures, and computer equipment of $1.3 million during both the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, which is included in selling, general and administrative expense in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income. There were no impairment closses recognized during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023.

Leases

The Company determines whether an arrangement contains a lease at inception in accordance with the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 842, Leases. Operating leases are included in operating lease assets and current and non-current operating lease liabilities, and assets leased under finance leases are included in property and equipment and current and long-term debt in the consolidated balance sheets.

Operating lease assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term, and operating lease liabilities represent the Company’s obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term in cost of services or selling, general and administrative expense, as applicable. Interest on finance leases is included in interest expense in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income.

Share-based compensation plans

The Company accounts for its share-based awards in accordance with provisions of ASC 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation. The Company calculates the fair value of option awards using the Black-Scholes model. For equity-classified awards, total compensation cost is based on the grant date fair value. For liability-classified awards, total compensation cost is based on the fair value of the award on the date the award is granted and is subsequently re-measured at each reporting date until settlement.

The Company recognizes share-based compensation expense over the requisite vesting period using a graded vesting model. Awards to employees and directors may contain service, performance and/or market vesting conditions. For unvested awards with performance conditions, the Company assesses the probability of attaining the performance conditions at each reporting period. Awards that are deemed probable of attainment are recognized in expense over the requisite service period. The Company accounts for forfeitures as they occur.

Share repurchase programs

The board of directors may authorize share repurchases of the Company’s common shares. Purchases made pursuant to these authorizations may be carried out through open market transactions at prevailing market prices, in privately negotiated transactions, in block trades and/or through other legally permissible means, depending on the market conditions and in accordance with applicable rules and regulations, at times and in such amounts as the Company deems appropriate. Shares repurchased under such authorizations are held in treasury for general corporate purposes, including issuances under various employee share-based award plans. When Company shares are repurchased, the amount of the consideration paid (including directly attributable costs, net of any tax effects) is recognized as a deduction of additional paid in capital. Repurchased shares are classified as treasury shares and are presented as a deduction from total equity. When treasury shares are subsequently sold or reissued, the amount received is recognized as an increase in additional paid in capital, and any resulting surplus or deficit on the transaction is reclassified to accumulated deficit.

Cloud Computing Software Implementation Costs

The Company incurs costs to implement cloud computing arrangements that are hosted by a third-party vendor. In accordance with ASC 350-40, Goodwill and Other, Internal-Use Software, for cloud computing arrangements that meet the definition of a service contract, the Company capitalizes qualifying implementation costs incurred during the application development stage in other non-current assets. Capitalized costs are primarily comprised of third-party consulting fees, direct labor, and related expenses. Capitalization of these costs concludes once the project is substantially complete and the software is ready for the Company's intended use. Once available for its intended use, the capitalized costs will be amortized on a straight-line basis over the term of the associated hosting arrangement including periods covered by an option to extend, and are included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income. Costs related to data conversion, overhead, general and administrative activities, and training are expensed as incurred. Post-configuration training and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred.

The Company capitalized $1.2 million and $2.4 million during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, respectively. There were no costs capitalized during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023.
Other postemployment benefits

During the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, the Company eliminated certain positions that it considered redundant and incurred approximately $1.5 million in severance costs, of which $1.3 million is recorded in selling, general and administrative expense and $0.2 million is recorded in cost of services in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income. As of March 31, 2024, $1.0 million was accrued and is expected to be paid by July 30, 2025.

Emerging Growth Company
The Company currently qualifies as an “emerging growth company” under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”). Accordingly, the Company has the option to adopt new or revised accounting guidance either (i) within the same periods as those otherwise applicable to non-emerging growth companies or (ii) within the same time periods as private companies pursuant to Section 13(a) of the Exchange Act. The Company has elected to use the extended transition period until we are no longer an emerging growth company or until we choose to opt out of the extended transition period affirmatively and irrevocably.

In November 2023, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2023-07, Segment Reporting (Topic 280): Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures, which improve reportable segment disclosure requirements, primarily through enhanced disclosures about significant segment expenses. In addition, the amendments enhance interim disclosure requirements, clarify segment disclosure requirements for entities with a single reportable segment, and contain other disclosure requirements. The amendments in ASU No. 2023-07 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance on the disclosures to our consolidated financial statements.

In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU No. 2023-09, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures, which modifies the rules on income tax disclosures to require entities to disclose (1) specific categories in the rate reconciliation, (2) the income or loss from continuing operations before income tax expense or benefit (separated between domestic and foreign), and (3) the income tax expense or benefit from continuing operations (separated by federal, state and foreign). This update also requires entities to disclose their income tax payments to international, federal, state and local jurisdictions, among other changes. The amendments in ASU No. 2023-09 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance on the disclosures to our consolidated financial statements.

In March 2024, the SEC issued its final climate disclosure rules, which require the disclosure of climate-related information in annual reports and registration statements. The rules require disclosure in the audited financial statements of certain effects of severe weather events and other natural conditions above certain financial thresholds, as well as amounts related to carbon offsets and renewable energy credits or certificates, if material. Disclosure requirements will begin phasing in for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2025. On April 4, 2024, the SEC determined to voluntarily stay the final rules pending certain legal challenges. We are currently evaluating the impact of the new rules on the disclosures to our consolidated financial statements.


2.REVENUE FROM CONTRACTS WITH CUSTOMERS
The Company recognizes revenues for services for which control has transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring the promised services. This process involves identifying the customer contract, determining the performance obligations in the contract, determining the transaction price, allocating the transaction price to the distinct performance obligations in the contract, and recognizing revenue when the performance obligations have been satisfied. A performance obligation is considered distinct from other obligations in a contract when it (a) provides a benefit to the customer either on its own or together with other resources that are readily available to the customer and (b) is separately identified in the contract. The Company considers a performance obligation satisfied as it provides services to a customer, meaning the customer has the ability to direct the use and obtain the benefit of the service.
Revenues from contact center services, which consist of customer service, technical support and other value-added outsourced back-office services, are recognized as the services are performed on the basis of the number of billable minutes or hours, contractual rates, and other contractually agreed metrics, if applicable. Certain of our client contracts include bonus and penalty provisions. Revenues related to training that occurs upon commencement of a new client contract or statement of work are deferred and recognized on a straight-line basis over the estimated life of the client program, as it is not considered to have a standalone value to the customer. The related expenses are expensed as incurred. Revenues are recognized over time as performance obligations are satisfied and in the period in which the Company has a right to invoice, net of discounts, incentives, and/or penalties as per contractual terms. Bonuses and penalties accrue for the current billing period and do not depend on future performance. In some cases, we may estimate these bonuses or penalties using the “most likely amount” method based on actual data and historical experience.
Revenues from digital services are recognized at a point in time upon the successful consumer activation or purchase of clients’ services. We utilize third parties in the satisfaction of this performance obligation; however, because we retain control over these third parties and are solely responsible for the risk and reward associated with this performance obligation, we have determined that we are the principal in these transactions and therefore recognize revenue on a gross basis.
Revenues from CX software-as-a-service products are recognized over time based on the term of the subscription. Set-up fees to customize the customer experience solution for client’s specific needs are deferred and recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the subscription. Revenues related to additional consulting services are recognized over the period as the related services are performed on a per hour basis.
All of our contracts include the right to invoice for services on a monthly basis. None of our contracts include significant termination penalties, and generally may be terminated for convenience at any time with a short notice period (generally 30 to 120 days).
The Company generally does not incur significant upfront costs to fulfill or obtain a contract that would qualify for capitalization under ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.

Disaggregation of Revenue
The majority of the Company’s revenues are derived from contracts with customers who are located in the United States of America (the "United States" or "U.S."). However, the Company delivers most of its services from regional customer experience delivery centers that are located in geographies outside of the United States. Our global delivery model is built on regional customer experience delivery centers and includes a unique ability to support work-at-home capabilities in any region that we currently operate.

The Company estimates its expected credit losses using the lifetime expected credit loss model. The allowance for credit losses is calculated quarterly based on the Company’s historical loss percentages, net of recoveries. In addition to the evaluation of historical losses, the Company considers current and future economic conditions and events such as changes in customer credit quality and liquidity. The Company will write-off accounts receivable against the allowance when it determines a balance is uncollectible.

Significant Client

During the nine months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, the Company had one client that contributed approximately 12.8% and 13.0% of total revenue, respectively.

To limit the Company’s credit risk with its clients, management regularly monitors the aging of customer receivables, maintains allowances for credit losses and may require prepayment for services from certain clients. Based on currently available information, management does not believe significant credit risk exists as of March 31, 2024.

5.DERIVATIVES
Cash flow hedges
Interest rate swap
In March 2020, the Company entered into a three-year $15 million notional floating to fixed interest rate swap to hedge the interest rate risk on the first $15 million of the balance outstanding under our $80 million revolving credit facility (as amended, the "PNC Credit Facility") with PNC Bank, N.A. ("PNC"). At the time the hedge was executed, all critical terms matched between the hedge and the hedged item. Hedge effectiveness was assessed prospectively at inception, and on an ongoing basis by confirming that the critical terms continue to match. Any hedge ineffectiveness is recorded in interest expense in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income. For the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023, there was no hedge ineffectiveness. The hedge expired in March 2023 and was not replaced.
Foreign exchange contracts
From time to time, the Company enters into foreign currency exchange contracts, consisting of offsetting foreign exchange option contracts (“collars”), to mitigate foreign exchange fluctuations on the Philippine Peso (“PHP”) within a certain range and on a certain percentage of its PHP operating costs. The collars are designated as cash flow hedges upon inception, in accordance with ASC 815, in order to match the financial results of the hedges with the forecasted transactions. These contracts cover periods commensurate with the expected exposure, generally three to twelve months. We execute our contracts with our primary banking partner, PNC. The Company has not experienced any material issues related to derivative counterparty defaults.
The following tables show the notional amount and fair value of our foreign exchange cash flow hedging instruments as of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023:

The fair value of the collars is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets.
Changes in the fair value of derivatives that are designated and qualify as cash flow hedges are recognized in accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI"). Amounts previously recognized in AOCI are reclassified to cost of services in the periods in which the hedged expenses occur.

Refer to Note 12. "Stockholders' Equity" for further details on the change in fair value of our cash flow hedges and the net gain or loss reclassified to earnings from effective hedges during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023.

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had $80.0 million of borrowing available under the PNC Credit Facility based on eligible collateral.

The PNC Credit Facility contains certain financial, operating, and other covenants, including, among other things, covenants restricting additional borrowings, paying any dividends and making certain investments. The Company was in compliance with all debt covenants as of March 31, 2024.
On May 6, 2024, the Company's subsidiaries, Ibex Global Solutions, Inc., Digital Globe Services, LLC, TelSatOnline, LLC, 7 Degrees, LLC, and iSky, LLC (collectively the "Ibex US Entities") entered into the Seventeenth Amendment to the Revolving Credit and Security Agreement and Consent (the "Amendment") with PNC Bank, National Association ("PNC"). The Amendment provides PNC's consent to the assignment of certain customer contracts (the "Contract Assignments") by the Ibex US Entities to the Company's subsidiary, Ibex Global FZ-LLC, provided that (i) the contract revenues associated with such Contract Assignments, upon the effectiveness of such Contract Assignments, shall not in the aggregate be greater than $175 million and (ii) the Ibex US Entities comply with additional reporting requirements.

7.COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
The Company is subject to claims and lawsuits filed in the ordinary course of business. Although management does not believe that any such proceedings will have material adverse effect on its consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows, no assurances to that effect can be given based on the uncertainty of litigation and demands of third parties. The Company records a liability for pending litigation and claims where losses are both probable and can be reasonably estimated.
Indemnification
In addition, in the ordinary course of business, we enter into agreements of varying scope and terms pursuant to which we agree to indemnify clients, vendors and other business partners with respect to certain matters, including, but not limited to, losses arising out of breach of such agreements, cybersecurity breach, services to be provided by us or from intellectual property infringement claims made by third parties. Historically, we have not experienced significant losses on these types of indemnification obligations.
8.WARRANT
On November 13, 2017, and as subsequently amended, the Company issued to Amazon.com NV Investment Holdings LLC, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc. (“Amazon”), a 10-year warrant to acquire approximately 1,674,017 common shares (the "warrant shares"), representing 10.0% of our equity on a fully diluted basis at the time of the warrant's issuance. The warrant is exercisable at a price per share of $9.42. The warrant provides for net share settlement, that if elected by the holder, will reduce the number of shares issued upon exercise to reflect the net settlement of the exercise price. The warrant is classified as an equity instrument in accordance with ASU No. 2019-08, which was adopted retroactively on July 1, 2020. The Company determined the grant date fair value of the warrant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

Table of Contents



The warrant shares vest on the satisfaction of specified milestones tied to Amazon’s purchase of services from the Company during a seven-and-a-half-year period ending on June 30, 2024. The vesting is partially accelerated in the event of a reorganization transaction (as defined in the warrant). Amazon is entitled to customary shelf and piggy-back registration rights with respect to the shares issued upon exercise of the warrant. Amazon may not transfer the warrant except to a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amazon.
As of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023, 1,171,812 and 1,004,410 warrant shares were vested, respectively. To date, the warrant has not been exercised, expired or cancelled.
The Company recorded contra revenue of approximately $0.3 million and $0.9 million, respectively, during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

As of March 31, 2024, there was $6.7 million of total unrecognized compensation expense related to non-vested share-based awards, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 3.23 years.
10.FAIR VALUE
The fair value hierarchy prioritized the input to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy requires that the Company maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The levels of the fair value hierarchy are as follows:
Level 1: Quoted prices for identical instruments traded in active markets.
Level 2: Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that cannot be supported by market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the asset, liability, or equity such as the use of certain pricing models, discounted cash flow models and similar techniques that use significant unobservable inputs.

19

Table of Contents



The carrying value of our cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, accrued payroll and employee-related liabilities, approximate fair value because of their short-term nature. The Company measures its debt at carrying value including accrued interest, which approximates fair value because of its short-term nature.
Derivatives designated as cash flow hedges
The values of our derivative instruments are derived from pricing models using inputs based upon market information, including contractual terms, market prices and yield curves. The inputs to the valuation pricing models are observable in the market, and as such the derivatives are classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.
Phantom stock awards
The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to value our phantom stock awards. All inputs to the model are derived from active market information for identical or similar instruments, including stock price, volatility, and interest rates. The inputs to the valuation pricing models are observable in the market, and as such the phantom stock awards are classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.
The following is a summary of the Company’s fair value measurements on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023:

11.INCOME TAXES
In determining its interim provision for income taxes, the Company used an estimated annual effective tax rate, which is based on expected income before taxes, statutory tax rates and tax planning opportunities available in the various jurisdictions in which the Company operates. Certain significant or unusual items are separately recognized in the period in which they occur and can be a source of variability in the effective tax rate from quarter to quarter.
Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. The Company records valuation allowances against its deferred tax assets based on whether it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will be realized.
The Company’s income tax provision includes the results of the Company’s U.S. operations and its various foreign operations including subsidiaries based in the United Kingdom, European Union, Canada, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Senegal, Honduras, and the Philippines. Historically, the Company’s Bermuda-based companies are not subject to income tax as there was no corporate income tax in Bermuda. On December 27, 2023 the Bermuda Corporate Income Tax Act 2023 was passed which provides for a 15% corporate tax rate beginning on or after January 1, 2025 for companies with revenue in excess of 750 million Euros. The Company is evaluating the impact of this legislation, but it does not anticipate that it will have a material impact on the Company’s operations.
The Company recorded provision for income taxes of $1.3 million and $3.9 million in the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, respectively. The effective tax rate was 11.0% and 14.2% for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, respectively. The Company recorded provision for income taxes of $1.9 million and $4.9 million in the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023, respectively. The effective tax rate was 14.2% and 15.4% for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023, respectively. The changes in effective tax rates between these periods was primarily attributable to changes in revenue mix across our taxable jurisdictions and discrete items recorded in the quarter.
The difference between the effective tax rate and the 21% federal statutory rate in the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024 was primarily due to "Tax Holidays" in certain countries in which we operate and the distribution of taxable income in countries with differing tax rates. We have been granted Tax Holidays as an incentive to attract foreign investment by the governments of Nicaragua, Pakistan, Honduras, Jamaica, and certain qualifying locations in the Philippines. Generally, a Tax Holiday is an agreement between us and a foreign government under which we receive certain tax benefits in that country.

The aggregate reduction in income tax expense due to the above Tax Holidays were $0.8 million and $3.4 million for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, respectively. The aggregate reduction in income tax expense per diluted share was $0.04 and $0.18 for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, respectively. The aggregate reduction in income tax expense due to the above Tax Holidays were $1.0 million and $2.8 million for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023, respectively. The aggregate reduction in income tax expense per diluted share was $0.05 and $0.15 for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023, respectively.
As of March 31, 2024, we had no unrecognized tax positions and do not expect changes to our uncertain tax positions within the next 12 months.

In April 2024, one of our foreign jurisdictions received an assessment relating to a fiscal year 2020 audit. Based on the Company's analysis, we have not recorded any of the assessment amount as an unrecognized tax benefit liability as management has determined that the entire amount is contestable and subject to dispute. Management is challenging the assessment.

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes included in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this "Form 10-Q"), the financial statements and related notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023 (the "Annual Report"), as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), and the information included under “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the Annual Report. In addition to historical data, the following discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those discussed in our forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including but not limited to those discussed under "Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" in this Form 10-Q and under Part I, Item 1A, "Risk Factors" in the Annual Report.
This Form 10-Q includes certain historical consolidated financial and other data for IBEX Limited (“ibex,” “we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company”). The following discussion provides a narrative of our financial condition and results of operations for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024 compared to the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023.
Overview

ibex delivers innovative business process outsourcing (“BPO”), smart digital marketing, online acquisition technology, and end-to-end customer engagement solutions to help companies acquire, engage, and retain valuable customers. Today, ibex operates a global CX delivery center model consisting of 29 delivery centers around the world, while deploying next-generation technology to drive superior customer experiences for many of the world’s leading companies across various verticals, including Retail & E-commerce, HealthTech, FinTech, Utilities and Logistics. ibex leverages its diverse global team of approximately 30,000 employees together with industry-leading technology, including its Wave iX platform, to manage customer interactions on behalf of our clients, driving a truly differentiated customer experience.
Business Highlights

During the third quarter of our fiscal year ending June 30, 2024, the Company continued to deliver a solid financial performance, in particular, growth in our digital first solutions with leading clients in our Retail & E-commerce and Travel, Transportation & Logistics verticals. We closed two sites during the quarter to optimize utilization in our onshore and nearshore geographies. Despite macroeconomic conditions impacting our historical growth trends, as well as the unfavorable impact on our revenue from shifting mix from onshore to offshore geographies, the business performed well in several important areas, including profitability and new client wins with key clients in strategic verticals. As expected, our new sales pipeline and wins have picked up pace, with fifteen new clients during the nine months ended March 31, 2024 versus eight in the prior year period.
Recent Financial Highlights

The Company delivered revenues of $126.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2024, a 3.6% decline compared to same quarter in the prior year, largely due to the year over year shift of delivery from onshore to higher margin offshore regions, macroeconomic conditions, and external factors impacting the FinTech and Telecommunications verticals, partially offset by revenue increases in the Retail & E-commerce and Travel, Transportation & Logistics verticals. Net income during the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $10.3 million, a decrease of 8.6% from $11.3 million during the same quarter in the prior year. Fully diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2024 of $0.57, a decrease of 3% from $0.59 per share during the same quarter in the prior year.

The Company delivered revenues of $384.0 million during the nine months ended March 31, 2024, a 3.7% decline compared to same period in the prior year, largely due to aforementioned factors and macroeconomic conditions. Net income during the nine months ended March 31, 2024 was $23.8 million, a decrease of 12.0% from $27.1 million during the same period in the prior year. The decrease in net income was primarily driven by

lower revenue, including training revenue recognized, impairment losses and severance costs related to our continued optimization efforts, and planned investments in our technology, sales and marketing, and client service functions as we continue to focus on revenue growth. Fully diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended March 31, 2024 was $1.29, a decrease of 10% from $1.44 per share during the same period in the prior year.
Trends and Factors Affecting our Performance
There are a number of key trends and factors that have affected and may affect our results of operations.
Macroeconomic Trends

Macroeconomic factors, including but not limited to, increasing inflation and interest rates, global economic and geopolitical uncertainty, changes in foreign currency exchange rates, and the impact that these factors are having on our clients and their customers, have also impacted our financial results during the nine months ended March 31, 2024. Some of our customers have increased their focus on cost reduction, resulting in decisions to shift work from onshore sites to offshore sites, which has contributed to a modest decline in revenue during the nine months ended March 31, 2024 when compared to the same period in the prior year. We expect that these factors will continue to impact our operations in the near term; however, we also believe that they present opportunities with both new and existing clients, as companies maintain a focus on cost reduction.

Artificial Intelligence ("AI")

With the increasing applicability of AI in enhancing business processes, the customer care industry is starting to integrate AI into its range of solutions to improve the customer experience and improve efficiencies. The proliferation and evolution of generative AI may have impacts on the CX sector. Potential automation in back-end and middle-office business processes, as well as potential increased use of bots to respond to pre-defined queries, could impact assisted customer interactions. Additionally, productivity, data availability and quality due to generative AI could result in an increased volume of work, as agents may be up-skilled to deploy improved analytical capabilities. However, the adoption of generative AI also presents key challenges in the forms of data security, governance, implementation and coordination of an overall customer service solution. These challenges create opportunities for trusted CX partners.

We are moving aggressively to develop the “Next wave of Wave iX” by leveraging generative AI in our business. We introduced WaveiX on January 30, 2024. We have created our three-pronged AI strategy, which continues to keep ibex at the forefront of digital transformation. Our solutions are focused on increasing agent productivity, providing deeper customer insights to elevate the customer experience and putting AI in front of the customer journey with voice and chat bots. We believe we are well positioned to leverage our leadership position in adopting new technology in the CX sector and to create significant value for our clients through the application of AI. More information on the risks related to the adoption of AI is described in Part 1. Item 1A of the Annual Report.

Client’s Underlying Business Performance

Demand for customer interaction services reflects a client’s underlying business performance and priorities. Growth in a client’s business often results in increased demand for our customer engagement solutions. Conversely, a decline in a client’s business generally results in a decrease in demand for our customer engagement solutions, shifting volume to lower cost geographies, and potential increases in demand for our customer acquisition and expansion solutions. The correlation between business performance and demand for outsourced customer interaction solutions can therefore be complex, and depends upon several factors, such as industry consolidation, client investments in growth, and overall macroeconomic environment, all of which can result in short term revenue volatility for providers. Demand during the nine months ended March 31, 2024 was constrained when compared to the same period in the prior year, due in large part to the aforementioned macroeconomic conditions.

Capacity Utilization
As a significant portion of our customer interaction services are performed by customer-facing agents located in delivery centers, our margins are impacted by the level of capacity utilization in those facilities. We incur substantial fixed costs in operating such facilities. The greater the volume of interactions handled, the higher the
26

Table of Contents



utilization level of workstations within those facilities and the revenues generated to cover those fixed costs, thus the greater the percentage operating margin.
As demand for delivery locations has continued to shift towards lower cost geographies during the nine months ended March 31, 2024, we have continued to fill the additional capacity in our offshore region and expect this capacity to be absorbed quickly as clients and prospective clients look to relocate work to cost advantageous markets in the near term. We continue to realize cost savings as we optimize the number of onshore and nearshore delivery centers.
Labor Costs

When compensation levels of our employees increase, we may not be able to pass on such increased costs to our clients or do so on a timely basis, which tends to depress our operating profit margins if we cannot generate sufficient offsetting productivity gains. During the nine months ended March 31, 2024, we continued to see increasing wage pressure in all of our geographies, in part brought on by the current global inflation and labor shortage, which is increasing competition for contact center agents from other sectors of the economy. During the nine months ended March 31, 2024, we have offset some of these wage increases with higher agent quality and increased productivity, higher agent retention, and increased client prices under contractual cost of living adjustments (“COLA”). Furthermore, our overall labor cost as a percentage of revenue is impacted by the aforementioned shift in delivery location from onshore delivery centers to offshore centers.
Delivery Location

We generate greater profit margins from our work carried out by agents located in offshore and nearshore geographies compared to our work carried out from onshore locations in the United States. As a result, our operating margins are influenced by the proportion of our work delivered from these higher margin locations. Over time we have expanded and further diversified our delivery network by adding facilities in these locations, offering a significant relative cost advantage. Our percentage of workstations in nearshore and offshore centers is approximately 95% as of March 31, 2024. We regularly evaluate new markets to continue to service our clients.
Provider Performance
Generally, our clients will re-allocate spend and market share in favor of outsourcing providers who consistently perform better and add more value than their competitors. Such re-allocation of spend can either take place on a short-term basis as higher performing providers are shielded by the client against demand volatility, or on a longer term basis as the client shifts more and more of its overall outsourcing spend and volume to higher performing providers. Our revenues have generally increased as a result of performance-based market share gains with our existing clients, as well as due to our new client wins.

Sales Cycles and New Client Wins

We have a strong track record of winning key new client accounts and as a result of our land and expand strategy, we have been successful in winning an increasing number of new client engagements, and subsequently increasing our revenues with these clients period over period. Historically, our in-year new client wins have generated 2.5x to 3.0x revenue in the second and third years of the engagement. However, in the slowing economic environment, our sales cycles were lengthening in fiscal year 2023 and the first two quarters of fiscal year 2024. We have seen sales activity pick up pace in the third quarter of fiscal year 2024.
Client Concentration
During the nine months ended March 31, 2024, our largest client accounted for 13%, while our three largest clients accounted for 29% of our consolidated revenues. We believe client diversification is an important attribute in a challenging market.

Seasonality

Our business performance is subject to seasonal fluctuations. These seasonal effects cause differences in revenues and expenses among the various quarters of any financial year, which means that the individual quarters should not be directly compared with each other or be used to predict annual financial results.

Pricing
Our revenues are dependent upon both volumes and unit pricing for our services. Client pricing is often expressed in terms of a base price per minute or hour as well as, in limited cases, with bonuses and occasionally penalties depending upon our achievement of certain client objectives. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023 and the nine months ended March 31, 2024, the tightening in the global labor market and corresponding wage inflation, as well as increasing facilities expenses has resulted in us pursuing and successfully negotiating price increases or COLA with many of our clients.
The current economic environment is also encouraging our clients to consider locating more of their support offshore. Within our customer engagement solutions, pricing for services delivered from onshore locations is higher than pricing for services delivered from offshore locations, largely driven by higher wage levels in onshore locations. Accordingly, a shift in service delivery location from onshore to offshore locations results in a lower price for our clients and a decline in our absolute revenues; however, our margins tend to increase, in percentage and often in absolute terms, as compared to onshore service delivery.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2024 and 2023
Revenue

Our revenue was $126.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2024, a decrease of $4.8 million, or 3.6%, compared to the prior year quarter. This decrease was primarily driven by macroeconomic factors impacting the FinTech and Telecommunications verticals, which decreased $7.0 million or 28.7%, and $3.6 million or 16.7%, respectively, from the comparative period. These decreases were partially offset by increases in the Retail & E-commerce vertical of $2.7 million, or 9.3%, and Travel, Transportation & Logistics vertical of $2.5 million, or 17.7% from the comparative period.

As a percentage of total revenue, the revenue from our Retail & E-commerce vertical increased to 24.9% during the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to 22.0%, and the revenue from our Travel, Transportation & Logistics vertical increased to 13.1% compared to 10.7% during the prior year quarter. Conversely, the revenue

from our FinTech vertical decreased to 13.7% compared to 18.5%, and the revenue from our Telecommunications vertical decreased to 14.0% compared to 16.2% during the prior year quarter.
Operating Expenses

Cost of services
Cost of services was $87.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2024, a decrease of $4.6 million, or 5.0%, compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease in cost of services was primarily due to decreases in payroll and related costs, facilities, telecom, reseller commissions and lead costs, and printing and production related expenses.
Payroll and related costs were $67.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2024, a decrease of $3.2 million, or 4.5%, compared to the prior year quarter. As a percent of revenue, payroll cost decreased to 53.0% during the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to 53.5% during the prior year quarter, reflecting the continuing trend of shifting volume to lower cost regions.
Facilities expenses, including rent and utilities, were $12.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2024, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 5.7%, compared to the prior year quarter. Telecom, reseller commissions and lead costs, and local transportation and other site related expenses were $6.0 million during the three months ended March 31, 2024, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 10.6%, compared to the prior year quarter. These decreases were primarily due to the site optimization efforts completed in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2023.
