TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jack Nathan Medical Corp. (TSXV: JNH, OTCQB: JNHMF) (“Jack Nathan Health”, “JNH” or the “Company”) announced today its unaudited financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, which ended July 31, 2021. Jack Nathan Health’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).
Commenting on the Company’s results and business momentum, newly appointed Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Glenn Copeland stated, “I am honored to take on the role of CEO and look forward to working with the JNH team and our partners. Through our alliance with Walmart, JNH is providing needed medical care services to millions of patients throughout Canada and Mexico. In addition to family care, we are expanding ancillary services, executing on our vision to create the best, one-stop, omni-channel medical experience. We are investing to support this vision; expanding our facilities and geographic footprint, staff and medical community, and technology platform, to generate value for all stakeholders in the years to come.”
Dr. Copeland continued, “While we reported strong year-over-year revenue growth, it was curtailed by restrictions related to the global pandemic. In spite of this, we acquired seven medical clinics year-to-date and re-opened the two MedSpas. Additionally, we are utilizing existing space to grow our Rehab and MedSpa footprint with ongoing expansion in the second half of this year and beyond. In Mexico, we reached a significant milestone, opening our 100th medical clinic last week, and we are on track to open 203 clinics by fiscal year end. The COVID-19 testing program launched this past quarter has been successful and we now have 28 testing tents open, with additional sites planned. We are creating a better patient experience and driving higher patient-clinic engagement, while building a foundation to support future growth.”

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED JULY 31, 2021
- Total revenues in the three-month period ended July 31, 2021, were approximately $1.9 million, an increase of $0.8 million or 70%, compared to total revenues of $1.1 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2020. For the six-month period ended July 31, 2021, total revenues were $3.2 million compared to $2.1 million for the six-month period ended July 31, 2020, an increase of $1.1 million, or approximately 50%. Driving the year-over-year improvement for both periods were higher revenues from clinic operations as the Company expanded its footprint throughout Canada and Mexico. The Company expects higher revenues in future periods as it continues to expand its footprint, add new services, and realize positive contributions from MedSpas, which re-opened towards the end of Q2 fiscal 2022.
- Total operating expenses in the three-month period ended July 31, 2021, were $3.8 million as compared to $0.6 million in the three-month period ended July 31, 2020, an increase of $3.2 million. For the six-month period ended July 31, 2021, total operating expenses were $6.7 million as compared to $1.4 million in the six-month period ended July 31, 2020, an increase of $5.3 million. Driving the year-over-year increase for both periods were higher costs associated with clinic expansion, the build-out of the management team, higher costs to support acquisitions, technology enhancements, and public-company expenses. Additionally, non-cash expenses for stock compensation expense contributed to $0.5 and $1.2 million of the increase when comparing the three and six-month periods ended July 31, 2021, and July 31, 2020, respectively.
- The Company reported a loss from operations of approximately $1.9 million in the three-month period ended July 31, 2021, as compared to income from operations of $0.5 million in the three-month period ended July 31, 2020. For the six-month period ended July 31, 2021, the Company reported a loss from operations of $3.5 million compared to income of $0.7 million for the six-month period ended July 31, 2020. The loss from operations in both periods was directly related to higher operating expenses related to growth and the investment to further scale operations.
- Adjusted EBITDA(1) in the three-month period ended July 31, 2021 was a loss of $0.7 million as compared to adjusted EBITDA of $0.5 million in the three-month period ended July 31, 2020. For the six-month period ended July 31, 2021, the Company reported an adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.2 as compared to adjusted EBITDA of $0.8 million in the six-month period ended July 31, 2020. The adjusted EBITDA loss for both periods was directly attributable to higher expenses to support growth initiatives and some expenses may not repeat in future periods. Additionally, the Company incurred restructuring costs of approximately $0.4 million in the three-month period ended July 31, 2021, related to management reorganization and professional fees.
Balance Sheet as of July 31, 2021

(1) Adjusted EBITDA
We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure to assess the ongoing performance of our Company as it provides more meaningful operating results by excluding the effects of expenses that are not reflective of our underlying business performance as well as one-time or non-recurring expenses. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted to add back or deduct, as applicable, certain expenses, costs, charges, or benefits incurred in the period, which in management’s view, are not indicative of normal operations, including: (i) non-capitalized development costs, (ii) acquisition related costs, (iii) stock compensation expense, (iv) other income (expense), (v) finance costs, (vi) loss on investments at fair value, (vii) FX, (viii) bad debt expense (recovery), and (ix) restructuring costs.
Non-GAAP measure: Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“EBITDA”) and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as alternatives to net income (loss) determined in accordance with IFRS. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Adjusted EBITDA is a meaningful financial metric as it measures cash generated from operations which the Company can use to fund working capital requirements, service future interest and principal debt repayments and fund future growth initiatives.
