EQ Inc. Reports First Quarter Results

Sequential revenue growth of 12%

Toronto, Ontario (FSCwire) – EQ Inc. (TSXV: EQ) (“EQ Works”), a leader in audience targeting for mobile, social, video, and display advertising today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Total revenue from operations for the quarter, which ended on March 31, 2016, was approximately $1 million, an increase of 12% from the fourth quarter of 2015 and an improvement of 4% compared with the $0.9 million recorded in the same period of 2015.

The adjusted EBITDA loss for the quarter was approximately $0.3 million, an improvement of 36% from the fourth quarter of 2015 and an improvement of 52% over the same period of 2015.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

We measure the success of our strategies and performance based on Adjusted EBITDA, which is outlined and reconciled with net income (loss) in the section entitled “Reconciliation of Net Loss for the period to Adjusted EBITDA” in the MD&A. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) from operations before; (a) depreciation of property and equipment and amortization of domain properties and other intangible assets; (b) share-based payments, (c) restructuring, (d) impairment of goodwill and domain properties and other intangible assets, (e) Income tax expense and recovery, and (f) finance income and costs, net. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of the Company’s operating performance because it provides information related to the Company’s ability to provide operating cash flows for working capital requirements, capital expenditures, and potential acquisitions. The Company also believes that analysts and investors use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies in its industry.

The non-IFRS financial measure is used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of IFRS financial measures. Management strongly encourages investors to review the Company’s consolidated financial statements in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure. Because non-IFRS financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-IFRS financial measures having the same or similar names. In addition, the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-IFRS adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from the Company’s non-IFRS measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
