We are thrilled with Snipp's achievements throughout 2023," stated Atul Sabharwal, Founder of Snipp. "Our strategic expansion into new markets, the introduction of new business lines, and most importantly, our investments in our team, are all yielding results. This success is reflected in some of the new client solutions we launched last year, positive EBITDA results in the third and fourth quarters, and a growing bookings backlog comprised of new logo wins as well as existing customers."

"In the next month, we will release our first-quarter earnings, which we anticipate will demonstrate further improvements in our gross margins as we move away from legacy contracts and proof of concept partnerships. Gambit Rewards remains uniquely positioned in the world of loyalty sports betting and our team continues to explore ways to improve its profitability and expand its use cases. We are also excited to update you on SnippMEDIA, which launched in March with a top financial institution and has shown promising early results. With an audience now exceeding fifty million loyalty users, we are well positioned to expand relationships with many of our Fortune 500 clients with yet another product that is an industry first. Our innovative platform can seamlessly integrate a cash back offer from a banking app directly with a retailer. It also modernizes the couponing process, moving us beyond traditional, print-at-home solutions."

"Snipp remains dedicated to ongoing innovation in the loyalty, couponing and first party data market and is strategically expanding our reach both across new geographies and within our current customer base. We are excited to share additional updates on our progress in the coming weeks. Our commitment to driving sustainable profitability is stronger than ever as we look to return our gross margins towards historical levels and generate expense leverage from the investments we have made over the past two years."


Non-GAAP Measures

Snipp uses certain performance measures throughout this document that are not recognizable under Canadian generally accepted accounting principles or IFRS ("GAAP"). These performance measures include Gross Margin and EBITDA. Management believes that these measures provide supplemental financial information that is useful in the evaluation of the Company's operations.


Investors should be cautioned, however, that these measures should not be construed as alternatives to measures determined in accordance with GAAP and IFRS as an indicator of Snipp's performance. The Company's method of calculating these measures may differ from that of other organizations, and accordingly, these may not be comparable.



Snipp defines earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) as revenue minus operating expenses excluding non-cash operating expenses of share-based payments, depreciation and amortization (interest and taxes are not included in the Company’s operating expenses).


Gross Margin

Snipp defines Gross Margin as revenue less campaign infrastructure. The Company's calculation of Gross Margin is not a financial measure that is recognized under GAAP. Investors should be cautioned that the Company's defined Gross Margin should not be construed as an alternative measure to other measures determined in accordance with GAAP.


Bookings Backlog

Snipp defines Bookings Backlog as future revenue from existing customer contracts to be recognized in future quarters. Bookings get translated into revenues based on IFRS principles and the Bookings Backlog reflects how revenues in future quarters are steadily being booked today.
