Montréal, QC – Siyata Mobile Inc. (TSX-V:SIM | OTC PINK:SIMFF) (the “Company” or “Siyata”) is pleased to report its financial results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016.
- 12-month revenue of $12.3M, an 24% increase over 2015;
- Increased gross profit margin to 23.8%, a 15% increase over 2015;
- 2016 adjusted EBITDA of negative $591K in 2016 versus adjusted EBITDA of negative $256k in 2015; and
- Sales in North America of $2.8M in 2016 versus $255K in 2015.
Marc Seelenfreund, CEO of Siyata Mobile, stated, “We are very pleased with our 2016 results increasing our sales and gross margin. The acquisition of Signifi Mobile in June 2016 allowed us to dramatically grow our North American sales and establish our Montreal-based team. During the year, we added cellular boosters and a rugged phone to our product portfolio and continue to launch innovative next generation devices such as our recently launched 4G/LTE UV350 device.”
The greater loss was mainly attributable to higher costs associated with being public for a full fiscal year in 2016, rather than 6 months in 2015, the Signify Mobile acquisition, the addition of a CFO, and additional support for the rugged phone launch in Israel.
Q3 and Q4 of 2016 showed sales growth of over 50% YoY, which continued into Q1 of 2017, where the Company announced its third record sales quarter in a row and 80% YoY growth. The Company continues to see strong demand from its carriers and dealerships, aiming to replace aging communication systems in their customers’ workforce with Siyata’s Push-to-Talk Over Cellular devices (PoC).
Mr Seelenfreund added, “Following our financing in March 2017, we have a solid balance sheet with ~$8M in working capital, a strong product portfolio and customers in international markets and industries. We are well positioned for strong growth in 2017 as we target major carriers and dealerships in the United States.”
