E EQ Works: "Our Competitors Can Only Dream About What We Offer"

Q3 Financial Review

In Q3 many of its customers renewed previously paused campaigns due to the COVID-19 crisis resulting in:

  • revenues increasing by 64% sequentially to C$2.85M;
  • gross margin improving to 50% sequentially from 37%;
  • adjusted EBITDA loss improving to approximately C$(0.1)M sequentially from C$(0.6)M.

The above trends are expected to continue and to grow substantially going forward.

Data solutions revenue in Q3/2020 was C$0.7M and now accounts for 25% of the company's overall quarterly revenue. That being said, the largest ad market in the world, the U.S., currently accounts for only 7% of the company's revenue so there is unlimited potential for company growth. We await news of more U.S. deal signings.

Below is a revised summary of related company financials:
