Statement from Roy Sebag, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer:
Against the background of a rapidly deteriorating macroeconomic environment, Goldmoney delivered one of its most profitable quarters for shareholders. Tangible Capital grew by 3% and Gold-Adjusted Tangible Capital grew by 6% to 2.49 grams per 100 Goldmoney Inc. shares. The company repurchased and canceled 1.1 million shares or 1.5% of our outstanding shares over the year. We remain focused on producing free cash flow, growing our long-term precious metal position, and buying back our stock when undervalued. As has been set forth in our shareholder letters, we have been preparing for the current environment for over two years by reducing operating expenditures, exiting non-performing business segments, and maximizing shareholder return on capital employed. The higher interest rate environment is most agreeable with our balance sheet which benefits from having high cash balances and no debt. The precious metals market has been weak, but we continue to find opportunities to capture widening spreads between spot and physical prices, especially in silver. It is impossible to predict whether the precious metals market will improve in 2023, but we are confident that Goldmoney will continue to build up capital through operational discipline and prudent management. Menē’s performance has been exceptional and somewhat surprising. Earlier in the year, I did not think the business would be so resilient in the face of the general slowdown in e-commerce activity. While e-commerce generally has been weak, the more prestigious European luxury houses have been able to, thus far, perform very well. Perhaps, Menē is more closely aligned with the activity of these brands as opposed to the general e-commerce industry. Finally, I would like to thank our executive team for their outstanding performance this quarter.
