Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - November 14, 2016) - Peak Positioning Technologies Inc. (CSE: PKK) ("Peak" or the "Company") today announced its consolidated financial results for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2016.
Q3 Financial Results Summary (all figures in Canadian dollars):
Revenues of $25,887,092 for the period, compared to no revenues for the same period last year
$129,634 in gross profits
Elimination of $100,000 of debt through the issuance of shares as a result of debenture conversion
$90,025 of cash inflow as a result of the exercise of common share purchase warrants
Q3 Operating Results Summary:
Purchase order commitments worth over $600M through the end of 2017
Start of Asia Synergy Technologies (AST) operations in Shanghai
Official launch of Gold River fintech platform
First orders received through Gold River and first revenue-generating transactions by AST
Due to Chinese government invoicing rules for newly created entities operating in certain industrial sectors, to which AST is subject, approximately $5M of the $30M+ in revenues expected to be reported by AST for Q3 will have to be recognized in Q4 instead.
"This quarter marked the beginning of our operations in China and we're very pleased with how things are going so far", commented Johnson Joseph, President and CEO of Peak. "Although this is just the beginning and we deliberately limited our transactions so far to those with no financial services and on which our profit margins are only 0.5%, we've received incredibly positive feedback from Gold River's users and are now comfortable to begin processing some of the more profitable transactions. So, both revenues and profits are expected to ramp up next quarter and in the quarters to come", concluded Mr. Joseph.
Revenues through AST are expected to continue to increase through the balance of 2016 and throughout 2017 primarily due to a pipeline of contracted orders and some new orders expected to come in periodically over the next few months and quarters. The Company is forecasting Q4 revenues between $70M and $75M with gross margins between 1.00% and 1.25%, while 2017 revenues are expected to exceed $550M with EBITDA of 3.00% to 5.00%.
