Tiny Reports Third Quarter 2023 Results
Tiny Ltd. (formerly, WeCommerce Holdings Ltd.) ("Tiny" or "the "Company") (TSXV: TINY) (OTCQX: TNYZF), a leading technology holding company with a strategy of acquiring majority stakes in businesses, today announced the financial results for Tiny Ltd. for the three- and nine-months ended September 30, 2023 ("Q3 2023" and "YTD Q3 2023", respectively). Currency amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.
Q3 2023 Financial Results
In an environment where corporate spending remains compressed, the Company's revenue is up sequentially and Adjusted EBITDA margins expanding by approximately 400 basis points compared to last quarter. Entering Q4, revenue will benefit from a full quarter of Clean Canvas' results, as well as partial quarters from Jagged Pixel. We expect to see expenses benefit partially in Q4 from the targeted efficiency initiatives we announced in October, with the full run-rate savings expected to begin in Q1 of 2024.
As we approach year-end, our pipeline of opportunities continues to expand. We see this as a perfect environment to continue adding businesses to our portfolio that generate recurring revenue and cash flow with a view to accelerating financial results as the macro backdrop improves and generating long-term value for shareholders.
Tiny Ltd's consolidated financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") for Q3 2023 are available on SEDAR+ at https://www.sedarplus.ca/.
Tiny is a Canadian-based investment company focused primarily on acquiring majority stakes in businesses that it expects to hold over the long-term. The Company is structured to give maximum flexibility to operating management teams by maintaining a focus at the parent company level on only three areas: capital allocation, management, and incentives. This structure enables each company to run independently and focus on what they do best, within an incentive structure that is designed to drive results for both the operating business and ultimately for Tiny and its shareholders.?
Tiny currently has three principle reporting segments: Digital Services, which provides design, engineering, brand positioning and marketing services to help companies of all sizes deliver premium web and mobile products?; E-Commerce Platform, which is home to a complementary portfolio of recurring revenue software businesses that support merchants, as well as digital themes businesses that sell templates to Shopify merchants?; and Creative Platform, which is comprised primarily of Dribbble, the social network for designers and digital creatives, as well as a premier online marketplace for digital assets such as fonts and templates.?
Non-IFRS Financial Measures
This news release makes to reference to certain non-IFRS measures and ratios, hereafter, referred to as "non-IFRS measures". These measures are not recognised measures under IFRS, and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures are provided as additional information to complement those IFRS measures by providing further understanding of the results of operations from management's perspective. Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of the financial information reported under IFRS. The Company uses non-IFRS measures including "EBITDA", "EBITDA %", "Adjusted EBITDA", "Adjusted EBITDA %" and "recurring revenue". Management uses these non-IFRS measures to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, to prepare annual operating budgets and forecasts and to determine components of management compensation. As required by Canadian securities laws, the Company defines and reconciles these non-IFRS measures below:
EBITDA and EBITDA %
EBITDA is defined as earnings (net income or loss) before finance costs, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is reconciled to net income (loss) from the financial statements.
EBITDA % ratio is determined by dividing EBITDA by total revenue for the year.
EBITDA and EBITDA % is frequently used to assess profitability before the impact of finance costs, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Management uses non-IFRS measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period and to prepare annual operating budgets. EBITDA and EBITDA % are measures commonly reported and widely used as a valuation metric.
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA %
Adjusted EBITDA removes unusual, non-cash or non-operating items from EBITDA such as listing expenses, acquisition costs, restructuring charges, asset impairments, non-cash stock-based compensation, fair value adjustments to contingent consideration payable and foreign exchange gains and losses. The Company believes adjusted EBITDA provides improved continuity with respect to the comparison of its operating performance over a period of time. Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to net income (loss) from the financial statements.
Adjusted EBITDA % is determined by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by total revenue for the year.
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA % is frequently used by securities analysts and investors when evaluating a Company's ability to generate liquidity from the Company's core operations. It provides a consistent basis to evaluate profitability and performance trends by excluding items that the Company does not consider to be controllable activities for this purpose. Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA % are measures commonly reported and widely used as a valuation metric.
Recurring Revenue consists of revenues generated through subscriptions that grant access to products and services with recurring billing cycles. The subscriptions are recognized on an overtime basis in accordance with IFRS 15.
Recurring Revenue is a part of total revenue disclosed in the financial statements, as determined in accordance with IFRS 15.
Recurring Revenue represents revenues that are stable and the Company expects to earn continuously. Recurring Revenue % is determined by dividing Recurring Revenue by total revenue for the year. Recurring Revenue is frequently used to determine any indicators of future revenue growth and revenue trends. Recurring Revenue and Recurring Revenue % are measures commonly reported and widely used as a valuation metric.
