Canada NewsWire

  • Operational improvements and cost reduction strategies have resulted in Tribe achieving 34% year-over-year improvement in Adjusted EBITDA.
  • Positive growth outlook driven by the anticipated closing of the previously announced Meritus Group acquisition and the onboarding of an increasing number of real estate development projects and new communities.

VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 29, 2023 /CNW/ - Tribe Property Technologies Inc. (TSXV: TRBE) (OTCQB US: TRPTF) ("Tribe" or the "Company"), a leading provider of technology-enabled property management solutions, today announces its financial results for three and nine months ended September 30, 2023. All amounts are stated in Canadian dollars on an as reported basis under IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) unless otherwise indicated.

Joseph Nakhla, Tribe's CEO commented, "We are pleased with our third quarter results in which we achieved revenue growth as well as a remarkable 34% year-over-year improvement in our Adjusted EBITDA. Reaching profitability has been the major focus for Tribe in the last few quarters and the team is well on its way to achieving its goal through the implementation of workflow optimizations, consolidation of back-end services and subscriptions, and other cost reduction initiatives. This substantial improvement reaffirms our commitment to delivering value to our shareholders and we remain dedicated in our pursuit of sustainable financial success."

Mr. Nakhla further added, "Our outlook continues to look strong for the remainder of the year and into 2024, boosted by the anticipated closing of the Meritus Group acquisition in the Greater Toronto Area, and our pipeline of additional acquisitions and organic growth opportunities. To further support our acquisition strategy, we secured a definitive loan agreement with a Canadian Schedule A bank, which provides a senior term loan facility for up to $15 million. While profitability remains a major focus, we continue to pursue additional acquisition and organic growth opportunities."

Angelo Bartolini, Tribe's recently appointed Chief Financial Officer stated, "Since joining Tribe, I've been impressed by the strong foundation within the business and the exciting trajectory it is on in transforming the property management industry.

Non-IFRS Measures

The following and preceding discussion of financial results includes reference to Gross Profit, Gross Profit Percentage and Adjusted EBITDA, which do not have a standardized meaning under IFRS, and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA1 is a useful measure as it provides important and relevant information to our management about our operating and financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA also enables our management to assess our ability to generate operating cash flow to fund future working capital needs, and to support future growth. The measure of Gross Profit2 and Gross Profit Percentage2 is provided as management believes this is a good indicator in evaluating financial performance and the operational efficiency of the Company.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is also not a measure recognized in accordance with IFRS and does not have a prescribed or standardized meaning by IFRS. We define Adjusted EBITDA attributed to shareholders as net income or loss excluding severance and acquisition costs, interest expense and finance costs, foreign exchange gains and losses, current and deferred income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, fair value gains and losses on investments, and other expenses. It should be noted that Adjusted EBITDA is not defined under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other entities. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure as it provides important and relevant information to our management about our operating and financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA also enables our management to assess our ability to generate operating cash flow to fund future working capital needs, and to support future growth. Excluding these items does not imply that they are non-recurring or not useful to investors. Investors should be cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA attributable to shareholders should not be construed as an alternative to net income (loss) or cash flows as determined under IFRS.

(2) Gross profit and gross profit percentage do not have a standardized meaning under IFRS, and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. We define gross profit as revenue less cost of software and services and software licensing fees, and gross profit percentage as gross profit calculated as a percentage of revenue. Gross profit and gross profit percentage should not be construed as an alternative for revenue or net loss in accordance with IFRS. We believe that gross profit and gross profit percentage are meaningful metrics in assessing our financial performance and operational efficiency.

As a rapidly growing tech-forward property management company, Tribe's integrated service-technology delivery model serves the needs of a much wider variety of stakeholders than traditional service providers.
