All amounts are stated in Canadian dollars on an as reported basis under IFRS (international financial reporting standards) unless otherwise indicated.
“This was a transformational year for Tribe, and we capped it off with consistently strong results in Q4, achieving record annual revenue and gross margin for the full year,” said Joseph Nakhla, Chief Executive Officer of Tribe. “We began the year with the acquisition of a large national property management company, became a public company, and continued our acquisition strategy completing three transactions in 2021. We formally launched our digital partnership program in the third quarter and continue to add partners to grow the offerings for residents of our Tribe communities.”
“With a record-setting 2021 now in the rear-view mirror, we have continued to execute on our growth strategy. On January 14 of this year, we closed on a $21 million private placement to fund our future growth initiatives, welcoming to our capital structure one of Canada’s leading technology investors, Round 13 Capital, and also welcoming to our Board at our recent annual and special meeting, Mr. Sanjiv Samant.”

1 In March of 2021, the Company announced a change in its financial year-end from April 30 to December 31. As a result of the change in year-end, the Company filed audited consolidated financial statements for the eight-month period ended December 31, 2020 and audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021. The information contained in this press release for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020 are considered estimates and are unaudited due to the change in year.
2 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, impairment charges 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.
3 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.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
