Statement from Roy Sebag, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer:
We continue to deliver consistent returns on capital to our shareholders. This quarter saw Goldmoney Inc. set new records in IFRS operating income. Importantly, our growth in tangible capital is outperforming the rise in gold, meaning that our primary objective of gaining leverage to a rising precious metal environment is being met. We repurchased 417,200 shares in the quarter reducing the share count to 74,304,288. We intend to repurchase our shares whenever possible at or near current market levels. As our balance sheet and net worth continue to grow, we will be looking for new opportunities to deploy our growing capital position. Further information about our long-term strategy and vision will be provided in the 2023 Annual Shareholder Letter in June.
I continue to believe that the macroeconomic environment is deteriorating and that a global economic recession is now upon us. In my view, the effects of higher rates along with persistent asset deflation have not been priced in by market participants. The Minsky moment has not yet arrived, but the table is set, and it is now only a matter of time. We are positioned accordingly with a pristine balance sheet, no debt, and minimal counterparty risk. In closing, I would like to thank all our clients, shareholders, and colleagues for their continued trust and support.
