“We are pleased to share our financial results this quarter, as this is the second consecutive quarter of revenue growth on lower operating expenditures. Our internal cost rationalization efforts coupled with strong operating performance have directly resulted in a 72% reduction in total comprehensive loss year over year, which validates our commitment to disciplined spending while we grow the network,” said Goldmoney Inc. CFO Katie Sokalsky. “A large portion of our expenditure is still non-cash, so it’s important to consider both the Non-IFRS Adjusted Loss and Non-IFRS Cash Loss figures to understand the true cash outlay. We have delivered on the objectives we set for the Company one year ago, and are pleased to have produced a very strong return for investors this quarter.”

“This was a great quarter for Goldmoney Inc. The acceleration of organic platform activity led to growth in revenue and long-term earnings power in the form of transaction margin and custodial fees, which is evident in the 25% increase in revenue achieved in Q2 despite a 40% reduction in marketing spend,” said Roy Sebag, founder and CEO of Goldmoney Inc. “This marked improvement over last year demonstrates the power of our business model to generate recurring revenue, as the financial relationships we develop rely on the platform for daily savings and payment transactions. Our effective capital management and fiscal responsibility demonstrate both our long-term focus and the respect we have for the assurances of integrity we make to our customers who entrust us with nearly $2 billion of assets.”
