Toronto, August 16, 2018Route1 Inc. (OTCQB: ROIUF and TSXV: ROI) (the “Company” or “Route1”), North America’s most advanced provider of industrial-grade data intelligence, user authentication, and ultra-secure mobile workforce solutions, today announced its second quarter (Q2) financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 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 generated cash from operating activities of approximately $0.4 million during Q2 2018 compared with cash used in operating activities of $0.1 million in Q2 2017.  Non-cash working capital of $0.3 million was generated in Q2 2018 compared to $1.6 million generated in the same period a year earlier.  Net cash generated from the day–to-day operations for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $0.8 million compared to $1.6 million in Q2 2017.

Acquisition of Group Mobile Int’l, LLC

On March 22, 2018, Route1 completed the acquisition of 100% of the membership interest of Group Mobile Int’l, LLC (“Group Mobile”).  During the second quarter of 2018, the Company revised the net purchase gain on acquisition to reflect changes in the balance of certain accounts based on information that was not readily available at the time of the acquisition; these adjustments are now reflected in the balances as at March 22, 2018.  The net purchase gain on acquisition is now $3,667 versus $106,692 as presented in the Company’s Q1 2018 financial statements.  For additional information, see the “BUSINESS COMBINATION” section of Route1’s Q2 2018 Management Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”).
