(1)In accordance with IFRS, the Company has prospectively changed its revenue accounting policy and has provided retrospective application. The Company restated revenue as net basis instead of gross for fees from exchange services. Transfer of fiat currency to the customer and receipt by the Company of precious metals, crypto assets or other fiat currency, were treated as an exchange service (net basis), instead of revenue from the sale of the fiat currency (gross basis). There is no impact to gross margin and net income.

Statement from the Chief Executive Officer
I am pleased to report to shareholders our financial results from the period ended September 30, 2019. This was our best operational quarter since becoming a publicly traded company in 2015. These financial results demonstrate the great harmony between our business lines which resulted in record revenue, cash flows, and operating results while also demonstrating the ability of the business to generate additional user volumes and related asset inflows.
Our group generated over $127 million in quarterly revenue, a new record under the revised accounting methodology we implemented in Q3 2019. Of this revenue, we produced a record $3.6 million of Gross Profit before any precious metal movements, and $5.6 million when incorporating precious metal movements. The IFRS Operating Expenses (OPEX) was $4.5 million for the period of which (as we have previously noted to shareholders) there are significant non-cash and non-recurring items. Through ongoing cost containment and other efficiencies, the trend in reducing our OPEX is becoming clear on both a quarterly and annual basis. Our target for the next two quarters is to reduce OPEX by an additional $1-1.5 million per quarter resulting in a potential group Cash OPEX of approximately $3 million per quarter. Assuming this to be the case in early 2020 and coupled with our ability to maintain the level of profitability we have been achieving in recent quarters, the group pro-forma operating free cash flow should be recurring. Such operating free cash flow is significant both in validating our business model and also providing a unique form of return on precious metals as our group cash flows are substantially linked to precious metal values.
In light of our robust quarterly results, the Goldmoney Inc. Board of Directors has increased our quarterly dividend payment by approximately 20%. The Board also intends to complete further share purchases this quarter under our Normal Course Issuer Bid program after considering the current share price and discount to intrinsic value which exists in the market subject to regulatory approval.
Finally, I would like to thank all who continue to make the Goldmoney Inc. group a successful global enterprise: our clients, our employees and executives, and our shareholders.
– Roy Sebag, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
