Route1 Reports 2015 Second Quarter Financial Results
Toronto, August 18, 2015 – Route1 Inc. (TSXV: ROI) (the “Company” or “Route1”), a leading provider of secure access technologies for the mobile workspace that protects businesses and government agencies, and whose customers include the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Commerce and the Government of Canada, today announced its second quarter (Q2) and year to date (YTD) financial results for the period ended June 30, 2015.
For Q2 2015, total revenue increased to $1.62 million from $1.40 million in Q2 2014. Gross profit also increased during the second quarter of 2015 to $1.33 million or 82% of revenue compared to gross profit of $1.17 million or 84% of revenue in Q2 2014.
During the second quarter of 2015 Route1 realized further growth in revenue from subscribers (recurring revenue), for the fifth consecutive quarter. The net increase in MobiKEY application software users (subscriber revenue being the largest component of Route1’s services revenue) continues to come from a variety of new accounts including continued growth from accounts within the U.S. Department of Defense.
Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) during the second quarter of 2015 amounted to approximately $226,000 compared to $120,000 in Q2 2014.
Route1’s second quarter 2015 total comprehensive net loss was $0.34 million compared to a loss of $0.03 million during the same period in 2014. The comprehensive net loss in Q2 2015 was primarily the result of foreign exchange losses. There was volatility and fluctuation of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar during the second quarter of the 2015 and the amount of U.S. dollars in foreign bank accounts was at a seasonal high exacerbating the fluctuation.
Route1 generated cash from operating activities of approximately $2.62 million during Q2 2015 compared with cash generated of $3.28 million in Q2 2014. As at June 30, 2015, the Company had no bank debt and a cash balance of $3,468,306.
