Acquisition of Group Mobile included in the Quarterly Results

Toronto, May 29, 2018Route1 Inc. (OTCQB: ROIUF and TSXV: ROI) (the “Company” or “Route1”), a leading technology solutions innovator dedicated to delivering secure data protection technologies and mobility solutions for government and the enterprise sector, earlier today announced its first quarter (Q1) financial results for the period ended March 31, 2018.

The Company’s Q1 results include results from Group Mobile Int’l, LLC (“Group Mobile”) for the nine days from March 22 to March 31, 2018.

1 Before stock based compensation and patent litigation
2 Includes stock based compensation, AirWatch litigation, gain on acquisition and foreign exchange

3 Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, patent litigation, restructuring and other costs. Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.  Adjusted EBITDA allows Route1 to compare its operating performance over time on a consistent basis.

Route1 used cash in operating activities of approximately $0.2 million during Q1 2018 compared with cash generated from operating activities of $0.4 million in Q1 2017.  Non-cash working capital used was $0.4 million in Q1 2018 compared to $1.6 million used in the same period a year earlier.  Net cash used in the day–to-day operations for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was $0.6 million compared to $1.2 million in Q1 2017, a decrease of $0.6 million.  The decrease in net cash used was a result of an increase in deferred revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and the working capital balances acquired with the acquisition of Group Mobile.

Route1’s cash position historically has been at its highest level during the second quarter of the fiscal year as a direct result of the timing of annual MobiKEY subscription renewal payments.  With the closing of the Group Mobile acquisition, this likely will change and the highest level of cash on Route1’s balance sheet will be tied to the timing of payments related to Group Mobile sales.

The following table summarizes the estimated fair value of the consideration transferred and the preliminary estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition date of for Group Mobile.  Route1 may adjust the preliminary purchase price allocation up to one year after the acquisition closing date.
