Tribe Property Technologies Inc. (TSXV:TRBE) (OTCQB:TRPTF) (“Tribe” or the “Company”) a leading provider of technology-enabled property management solutions, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2022.
Quarterly Business Highlights
- Achieved record quarterly revenue of $4.2 million, a 11% increase from Q1 2021;
- Raised $21 million in gross proceeds from a private placement;
- Continued to roll-out our enhanced digital partnership program announcing three new partners in the quarter:
- Nextlevel Drycleaners, providers of premium dry cleaning and laundry services;
- TUT Fitness, providers of functional strength and cardio training products to residents living in communities; and
- Umbracity, a network of fully automated, smart umbrella rental kiosks that provide on-demand access to umbrellas for communities;
- After quarter’s end, Tribe signed an agreement to acquire Southview Property Management Inc., a privately held property management firm based in Richmond, British Columbia.
“Tribe has started the year with record quarterly revenue with progress across our M&A activities, digital partnerships and organic growth. Revenues increased by 11% compared to the same period last year. We are experiencing strong revenue growth on a per-home basis as we continue to digitize our acquired customers and roll-out our Tribe Home platform to more communities.
Our digital approach to the traditional property management industry continues to be embraced by condo and rental communities alike with a very healthy organic lead pipeline. Strong support of our vision is also apparent with the $21 million in gross proceeds raised earlier this year from a private placement,” stated Joseph Nakhla, Chief Executive Officer of Tribe.
“Our team has built a healthy funnel of potential acquisition targets and we are pleased with our integration process and speed, with the signing just after our quarter end of an agreement to acquire Southview Property Management Inc, further growing our presence across Greater Vancouver,” added Mr. Nakhla. “We are also very pleased with the quality and speed of the rollout of our digital partnership programs within our communities to further improve residents’ living experiences while saving them money and producing additional revenue for the Company.”
First Quarter Fiscal Highlights
Financial information is reported in Canadian dollars and in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). Tribe achieved revenue growth of 11% in the first quarter of 2022 over the same period in the prior year, driven primarily by organic growth and smaller tuck under acquisitions made late in 2021. Delays in the delivery of new buildings because of supply chain issues, municipal government bureaucracy and delays, and labour issues related to the current pandemic, pulled down expected revenue growth percentages.
Revenue was $4,202,215, representing an 11% increase from $3,786,129 in the first quarter of 2021. Gross profit2 was $1,835,046 (43.7%) compared to $1,786,489 (46.7%) in the first quarter of 2021. Gross profit percentages were negatively impacted by growth in the property maintenance division of the Company, which has lower margins than other revenue lines of the Company, and by increasing labour costs because of general market conditions.

Adjusted EBITDA1, which management believes is a better proxy for the Company’s cash flows, was an outflow of $1,481,370 compared to an outflow of $539,202 for the first quarter of 2021. The Company has increased costs associated with being a public company and has built out its technology and acquisitions teams to allow it to scale for further growth.

1 – Adjusted EBITDA is a 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, 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.
2 – Gross profit and gross profit percentage are non-IFRS measures that do 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.
