“The first quarter continued to demonstrate the continued growth of our core business. We are incredibly pleased with the strong start to the year this has given us. In addition, on the back of our sustained growth we closed on two strategic steps in the first quarter. The first was our acquisition of Gambit Rewards and the second was on closing a strategic investment from Bally’s Corporation.” said Mr. Sabharwal, Founder of Snipp Interactive Inc. “Both initiatives are expected to yield tangible growth for us in future quarters. With Gambit Rewards, we have already completed our first major set of integrations and soon to be announced partnerships. We are also in the process of re-branding the platform with the assistance of Bally’s before embarking on a larger roll out. In addition, under the umbrella of our recently announced commercial agreement with Bally’s, we are continuing to scope out implementations of SnippCARE, our industry leading loyalty data platform. The revenue impact from this partnership will materialize over the back half of this year. In summary we are excited about the prospects of the business and are continuing to see our momentum carry into the second quarter.”
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).
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.
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.
