Advisory assets at the end of the first quarter were $40.9 billion, with $1.2 billion growth in net new advisory assets, the highest ever for the Company. Expectation of double-digit top line growth for TaxAct for tax year 2021. “During our Investor Day in June of last year we shared a number of goals, that when achieved, would signal the positive execution of our strategy. I am happy to report that we have effectively executed on the most critical of these metrics and we feel better positioned than ever to deliver sustainable, profitable growth,” commented Chris Walters, Blucora’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Despite short-term headwinds associated with volatility in equity markets and an unexpected dip in DIY tax filers this season, we expect to deliver double digit revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth for the business. This will be driven by market share and ARPU gains in TaxAct, and net positive flows, shifts to higher ROA revenue streams and a rising interest rate environment in Avantax.” Full Year 2022 Outlook With the bulk of the tax season now complete, Blucora is providing a consolidated outlook for fiscal 2022, including a revised outlook for the Tax Software segment, for total revenue of between $937.5 and $971.0 million and Adjusted EBITDA between $143.5 and $162.0 million, compared to $885.2 million and $138.5 million, respectively, in fiscal 2021.
