"Q2 2021 represents our sixth consecutive quarter with positive EBITDA. By achieving positive Net Income on the strength of our operations, we continue to validate our strategy of building out 'the’ industry leading global and modular Customer Acquisition and Retention Platform, which we have single-mindedly pursued over the last two years and are even more confident in a bigger and brighter future as we stay focused on executing this growth strategy. For now our focus will remain on profitable top line growth with a view of capturing more market share and entering new industries and markets that can leverage our SnippCARE(r) Platform. In the coming quarter as we keep EBITDA positive but double down on top line growth, we plan on sacrificing a few points of margin to gain this bigger market share and build our presence in new industries. We will also continue to break into new geographic markets and establish a direct presence to service more of our existing Fortune 500 clients across the globe. Today with just 3 of our clients we are executing programs in over 39 countries so there is a lot of room for us to grow. The significant growth in our bookings backlog should also give investors confidence that our revenue growth will continue to expand over the coming quarters as our bookings materialize into recognized revenue. Consequently 2021 is continuing to be a significant and profitable year of growth for the company," said Atul Sabharwal, Founder & CEO.
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.
