TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Namsys Inc. (CTZ – TSX-V) today reports the results of operations for the first three months of fiscal 2017, ended January 31st. All amounts referenced herein are in Canadian dollars.
Revenue for the first three months of fiscal 2017 was $691,256 as compared to $495,285 for the same period last year. Income before Income Tax, a key metric in gauging business performance, was $288,913 ($0.01 per share), as compared to $253,280 ($0.01 per share) in the first quarter of 2016. The Company is not presently fully taxable due to loss carry forwards and Federal tax credits from previous years. It is noteworthy that the gain in foreign exchange, over which the Company has no control, was $55,609 in the first quarter of 2016, as compared to a loss of $47,906 for the same period this year.

Exchange rate at that time. Comprehensive income for the first quarter of 2017 was $211,784 ($0.01 per share) compared to $186,014 ($0.01 per share) for the comparable period in 2016.
