First Quarter Results 2022

  • Total revenue and profit in the first quarter of 2022 was largely similar to the fourth quarter of 2021 and less than the first quarter of 2021. The industry as a whole has seen a significant change in the last twelve months which will present opportunities in this new environment.
  • Adjusted EBITDA improved in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the fourth quarter of 2021 primarily due to strategic cost containment measures that will have a continuing positive impact on adjusted EBITDA. Lower adjusted EBITDA compared to Q1 2021 primarily attributable to lower gross profit and higher operating expenses from increased headcount for strategic investments in scalable growth based on mobile online applications and additions to our ATM network Both in Canada and abroad.
  • The net loss was $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to a net loss of $4.4 million in the same period in 2021. The net loss included a non-cash gain from a $0.2 million crypto loan revaluation in the first quarter of 2022 and a loss $5.3 million in the same period in 2021.
