Statement from Roy Sebag, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer:
Dear Goldmoney Shareholder,
In the annual shareholder letter published on June 29, 2020 I predicted rich harvests for our group in the coming seasons. In this quarter of operations, which is the first to be disclosed since the letter’s publication, we can now observe how profitable our group of businesses can be. In just 90 days of operations, Goldmoney Inc. produced record IFRS Net Income of $6 million and record IFRS Gross Profit of over $10 million. But even these figures, though hard-earned and most welcomed, do not quite demonstrate the free cash flow we generated. Take, for example, the operating line items which consist of nearly $2 million of non-cash or extraordinary items. In other words, according to the way management thinks about the business, Goldmoney Inc. produced circa $8 million in earnings this past quarter. As I have sought to achieve for nearly two years, our extraordinary items are beginning to normalize, including G&A and Professional Fees; however, even here the picture isn’t entirely clear, and the amounts will, in time, reflect the true operation costs. As I type this statement, Group client assets stand at nearly $2.8 Billion, which is also a new record, and our corporate precious metal position is circa $45 million.
What a wonderful quarter: it is truly a testament to the investments we have made in building our business for a rising precious metal environment and, more importantly, to the years of difficult work by our team members across the world. I would like to thank our executives, our employees, and our colleagues for their tremendous efforts and dedication. We continue to be impressed by the strength of the precious metal markets and have positioned our group to benefit from what, to us, appears to be a nascent bull market.
Financial Information and IFRS Standards
The selected financial information included in this release is qualified in its entirety by, and should be read together with, the Company's consolidated financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and the corresponding management's discussion and analysis, which are available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Shareholders of Goldmoney are encouraged to submit questions to management by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This news release contains non-IFRS financial measures; the Company believes that these measures provide investors with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of its business, enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in operating its business. Although management believes these financial measures are important in evaluating the Company's performance, they are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS. These non-IFRS financial measures do not have any standardized meaning and may not be comparable with similar measures used by other companies. For certain non-IFRS financial measures, there are no directly comparable amounts under IFRS. These non-IFRS financial measures should not be viewed as alternatives to measures of financial performance determined in accordance with IFRS. Moreover, presentation of certain of these measures is provided for year-over-year comparison purposes, and investors should be cautioned that the effect of the adjustments thereto provided herein have an actual effect on the Company's operating results.
Tangible Capital is a non-IFRS measure. This figure excludes from total shareholder equity (i) intangibles, and (ii) goodwill, and is useful to demonstrate the tangible capital employed by the business.
Gross profit excluding gain/loss on revaluation of inventories is a non-IFRS measure, calculated as gross profit less gain/(loss) on revaluation of precious metals. The closest comparable IFRS financial measure is gross profit. Fluctuations in the value of its precious metal inventories caused by fluctuations in market prices are included in gross profit. Management believes that excluding such fluctuations more clearly illustrates the Company’s business operations.
For a full reconciliation of non-IFRS financial measures used herein to their nearest IFRS equivalents, please see the section entitled "Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Financial Measures" in the Company's MD&A for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.
