VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mogo Inc. (TSX:MOGO) (NASDAQ:MOGO) (“Mogo” or the “Company”), one of Canada’s leading financial technology companies, today provided a preliminary update on its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.
Q2 2020 Financial Highlights
Mogo is expecting to report:
- Revenue of $10.3 million to $10.5 million;
- Adjusted EBITDA of $4.5 million to $5.0 million; and
- Positive operating cash flow net of investing activities of $6.5 million to $7.0 million
“Given the continued uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we believe it is important to provide a preview of our Q2 results, which demonstrate the resiliency of our financial model, the impact of our actions to create a leaner, more efficient cost structure and the levers in our business we can manage to significantly increase operating cash flow,” said Greg Feller, President and CFO. “These steps helped drive a material and better-than-expected sequential improvement in net cash generated from operating and investing activities, as well as our highest-ever Adjusted EBITDA. Our loan portfolio continues to demonstrate resiliency in these challenging economic times. The record-low default rates we experienced in April and May, continued in June, giving us now several months of encouraging data on this diverse portfolio.”
“While we continue to navigate the current economic climate, we are moving forward with our strategies to enhance the product offering and value proposition to Mogo members, as well as the monetization of our more than 1 million members,” added David Feller, Mogo’s Founder and CEO. “In the very near term, we are broadly rolling out MogoSpend, our digital account that comes with a Mogo Visa* Platinum Prepaid Card, which includes a unique carbon offset feature that can help Canadians save money and the planet. Given everything that’s going on in the world, we believe consumers are looking for simple ways to not only manage their financial health but to become a more sustainable consumer. In addition, we continue to make progress on new referral partnerships initiatives which we discussed during our Q1 results.”

Non-IFRS Financial Measures
This press release makes reference to certain non‑IFRS financial measures. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These measures are provided as additional information to complement the IFRS financial measures contained herein by providing further metrics to understand the Company’s results of operations from management’s perspective. Accordingly, they should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of our financial information reported under IFRS. We use non‑IFRS financial measures, including core revenue (total revenue excluding revenue from bitcoin mining and revenue related to Liquid loans), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted cash net income (loss), to provide investors with supplemental measures of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. Our management also uses non‑IFRS financial measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, prepare annual operating budgets and assess our ability to meet our capital expenditure and working capital requirements. Please see “Non-IFRS Financial Measures” in our Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the Period Ended March 31, 2020 for a reconciliation of these non-IFRS financial measures to the nearest IFRS measures which is available at www.sedar.com and at www.sec.gov.
