Vancouver, British Columbia – Tribe Property Technologies Inc. (TSXV:TRBE) (“Tribe” or the “Company”) a leading provider of technology-enabled property management solutions, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2021.
Quarterly Business Highlights
- Reported record revenue of $3.97 million, a 244% increase over revenue in second quarter 2020
- Reported record gross profit2 of $1.98 million, a 274% increase over gross profit2 in second quarter 2020
- Made significant progress in the integration of Gateway Property Management (“Gateway”)
- Built the team and tools to underpin Tribe’s future acquisition strategy
First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Summary
Financial information is reported in Canadian dollars and in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). Tribe achieved revenue growth of 244% in the second quarter of 2021 over the same period in the prior year driven by the acquisition of Gateway which expanded the Company’s geographical footprint in the condo management services sector to the provinces of Alberta and Ontario, as well as significantly increased the scale of Tribe’s institutional rental management business. Revenue was $3,970,816 representing an increase from $1,155,121 in the second quarter of 2020. Gross profit2 increased in both dollar terms and in percentage terms. Tribe recorded a net loss of $1,644,529 in the second quarter of 2021 which reflects the additional costs associated with being a public company and the scaling of corporate infrastructure to support further acquisitions and the costs associated with the amalgamation of Gateway and Tribe. Adjusted EBITDA1, which management believes is a better proxy for the Company’s cash flows, was a loss of $981,282.
“We saw another quarter of substantial revenue growth and great progress in our business. Revenues increased by 244% compared to the same period last year. This was driven by our Gateway acquisition which expanded our market penetration into more homes and communities. This quarter, we focused on the integration of the Gateway acquisition which I am pleased to say went very smoothly. We also embarked on a significant rebranding of both Gateway and our platform under the Tribe umbrella to support brand awareness and our holistic tech and service offering. The alignment of our internal teams is a key factor in our success in simplifying community living and providing management services with heart,” stated Joseph Nakhla, Chief Executive Officer of Tribe.
“As COVID-19 restrictions begin to loosen in many jurisdictions, we are beginning to see increased activity in our organic business development programs as well as an uptick in our strategic marketplace offerings. Our team has built a healthy funnel of potential acquisition targets and we continue to progress discussions with potential targets.”
“In Q2, we began making investments which we expect will unlock long term future growth and value for Tribe and our shareholders. During the quarter we not only completed the rebranding of the business we acquired from Gateway, we also codified our acquisition and integration processes into a playbook that we can leverage for further acquisitions. We have invested in an internal acquisitions team and have built the tools to complete further “tuck-in” and larger acquisitions. We have also scaled our Product and IT teams to facilitate the expeditious roll-out of our technology solutions into the properties we currently manage and anticipate managing,” added Mr. Nakhla.
Three Month Comparative Results
The Company reported revenue of $3,970,816, up 244% over the same period in the prior year of $1,155,121. The increase in revenue was primarily due to revenue generated via the integration of Gateway. The Company had a net loss of $1,644,529 for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to a net loss of $958,117 in the same period of 2020.
Gross profit2 in the second quarter of 2021 was $1,981,414 (49.9%), which was 274% higher than the $529,846 (45.9%) gross profit2 in the same period in the prior year. The increase in gross profit2 was a result of the addition of service contracts associated with the Gateway acquisition, and the increase in gross profit percentage2 was driven by economies of scale from a larger property management services business.

1 Non-IFRS measure that does not have a standardized meaning and may not be comparable to a similar measure disclosed by other issuers. Adjusted EBITDA is also not a measure recognized in accordance with IFRS and does not have a prescribed or standardized meaning by IFRS. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss excluding depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, interest expense, income tax expense, and other expenses. It should be noted that Adjusted EBITDA is not defined under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other entities. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure as it provides important and relevant information to management about the operating and financial performance of the Company. Adjusted EBITDA also enables management to assess its ability to generate operating cash flow to fund future working capital needs, and to support future growth. Excluding these items does not imply that they are non-recurring or not useful to investors. Investors should be cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA attributable to shareholders should not be construed as an alternative to net income (loss) or cash flows as determined under IFRS.
2 Non-IFRS measure that does not have a standard meaning and may not be comparable to a similar measure disclosed by other issuers. Gross profit and gross profit percentage do not have a standardized meaning under IFRS, and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The Company defines gross profit as revenue less cost of software and services and software licensing fees, and gross profit percentage as gross profit calculated as a percentage of revenue. Gross profit and gross profit percentage should not be construed as an alternative for revenue or net loss in accordance with IFRS. The Company believes that gross profit and gross profit percentage are meaningful metrics in assessing the Company’s financial performance and operational efficiency.
