One-time Outlook for 2021
The Company has set several goals for 2021, including but not limited to; increasing the Company client base to increase trailing twelve-month revenues by the end of 2021 to $10 million annually, completing the Company's changeover in new software systems, which began in 2020, to reduce operating costs and improve gross margins, and to continue working on the Company's changeover in radiologist billing margins to 25% from 20%. The above goals would have a net estimated result of trailing twelve-month financial numbers of a total $10 million in Company revenue, $2.2 million in gross margin and approximately $1.1 million in EBITDA. Additionally, the Company has added an Advisory board in 2020 with the goal of finding suitable acquisitions for the Company.
"In the midst of the pandemic, we had a very exciting year in terms of growth, increased revenue and going public onto the TSXV", said Mitch Geisler CEO. "We were able to navigate through a tough second quarter due to COVID-19 and still have increased revenue and profitability for 2020. This represents the fifth consecutive year over year revenue growth for our operations. The Company went public and retired its royalty obligations which will enhance our net cash flow in the coming years. Operations continue to thrive as more hospitals are looking to utilize services like CTS that emphasize remote healthcare for optimum patient care without delay. With a strong balance sheet and nearly no debt, the Company is well positioned for further growth. We have selected a new PACS supplier that will ultimately lead to decreased expenses and we have begun a new arrangement with radiologists joining the company that will increase gross margins."
Non-IFRS Financial Measures
This news release contains financial terms (such as adjusted EBITDA) that are not considered in IFRS. Such financial measures, together with measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, provide useful information to investors and shareholders, as management uses them to evaluate the operating performance of the Company. The Company's determination of these non-IFRS measures may differ from other reporting issuers, and therefore are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Further, these non-IFRS measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance or cash flows prepared in accordance with IFRS. These financial measures are included because management uses this information to analyze operating performance and liquidity.
Adjusted EBITDA & Annual Revenue Run Rate
Management believes adjusted EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure to determine the Company's ability to generate cash available for working capital, capital expenditures, debt repayments, interest expense and income taxes.
EBITDA refers to net income (loss) determined in accordance with IFRS, before depreciation and amortization, net interest expense (income) and income tax expense (recovery). The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA, plus stock-based compensation expense, restructuring, fair value adjustments, listing expense and transaction costs, impairment and finance income.
A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) is as follows:
| Three Months ended |
| Year ended, |
|($ in thousands)||2020||2019||2020||2019|
|Net income (loss) and comprehensive income (loss)||(11,668)||(50)||(11,563)||106|
|Depreciation and amortization||8||12||33||60|
|Net interest expense||153||12||202||180|
|Misc and foreign exchange||36||-||36||-|
|One time transaction costs||546||-||546||-|
|Professional Fees related to Listing||191||-||211||-|
