  • Sale of Impact Mobile increases tangible net worth to $36 million
  • Balance sheet supports a portfolio of more than $350 million with liquidity for the foreseeable future

TORONTO, Aug. 20, 2018 /CNW/ - Dealnet Capital Corp. ("Dealnet" or the "Company") (TSX:DLS), reported today its financial results for the three-month and six-month periods ending June 30, 2018. All results are reported under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise specified. With the sale of Impact Mobile on July 6, 2018, the results of operations attributable to Impact Mobile have been segregated from the ongoing continuing business and presented as discontinued operations.

Including the income from discontinued operations, the net loss for the three-month period was $51 thousand ($0.00 per share) versus a net loss of $3.1 million ($0.01 per share) for the same period last year. For the three-month period ending June 30, 2018, the Company reported a loss from continuing operations of $1.4 million versus a loss of $4.0 million for the same period last year.  

Adjusting the loss from continuing operations of $1.4 million for the $823 thousand in net finance costs attributable to the $12 million of senior secured debentures which were redeemed subsequent to the end of the period, the adjusted loss from continuing operations was approximately $569 thousand inclusive of approximately $237 thousand of non-cash expenses.

"The sale of Impact Mobile in early July marked a critical inflection point for the turnaround of Dealnet Capital," said Brent Houlden, Dealnet's President and Chief Executive Officer. "This transaction gives Dealnet the opportunity to fund our operations through 2019 and beyond, allowing us to strategically focus on improving the profitability and growth of our consumer finance business. The future is bright." added Mr. Houlden.

Today, the Company reached an agreement to cancel 1,473,336 common shares to settle various outstanding amounts related to the January 2017 portfolio acquisition. The Board of Directors has also cancelled the Company's short-term incentive plan and 2018 bonuses will be set at the discretion of the Board.
