- Gross dollar value (“GDV”) loaded on the Company’s platform was $137MM for the quarter and just under $324MM year to date. This was the highest quarter in the Company’s brief history, and an increase of 182% from $48.7MM for Q3 2021, and an increase of $21MM or 18% from Q2 2022;

Total Active Users (defined as a Today wallet holder with at least one transaction in the past 6 months) increased to 87K at the end of Q3 2022 from just under 83K at the end of Q2 2022 (metric was not measured in the year ago quarter);
- During the quarter the Company successfully onboarded 103 new locations for its Today program;
- Revenue of just under $1.5MM for the quarter ending Q3 2022 was an increase of $0.6MM or 70% compared to Q3 2021, and derived predominantly from the Canadian market;
- Gross Profit was $306K or 21% of revenue, a decrease of 22% or $84K compared to $390K or 45% of revenue for Q3 2021 due to a significant investment in engineering for product innovation and a one-time high margin program management revenues being recognized in the year ago quarter;
- Operating expenses were $2.2MM, an increase of 56% or $0.8MM compared to $1.4MM for Q3 2021 with the main driver being increase engineering fees to support the Company’s product and market expansion initiatives;
- Cash totaled $4.2MM as at September 30, 2022, down -$4.2MM from prior year-end total of $8.4MM with the decrease attributable to funding operational requirements and investments into new products including platform improvements to support new verticals, Earned Wage Access (EWA) and Tip and Gratuity allocation and distribution solution.
“The third quarter revenue and GDV achievements continued on the trajectory we experienced in Q2, reinforcing both the value proposition of the Today program to operators in the hospitality space and now additional verticals, and the unique go-to-market strategy XTM has pioneered,” said Marilyn Schaffer, CEO and Founder, XTM. She continued "Capital markets remain turbulent, sharpening our focus on fundamentals. Though we are a growth-company, we prudently continue to tighten our spend and are launching ancillary revenue streams in the coming weeks to contribute to profit margins thus reducing operating cash consumption to sustain us through the following 12 to 18 month period.”
- On October 12, 2022, the Company held its inaugural Annual General Meeting where Shareholders voted to approve all matters brought before the Meeting including the setting of the number of directors at four, the election of all director nominees and the re-appointment of MNP LLP as auditors for the ensuing year.
- As announced in Q2 regarding the Today platform enhancements allowing it to enter the market supporting new verticals outside of hospitality, personal care and food delivery, in October the company finalized the terms and signed a large contract worker organization and expects to provide instant earnings to 200,000 users in Canada and the US with onboarding beginning January 2023.
At the end of Q3 the Company began implementing a number of cost-cutting initiatives including but not limited to;
- Change of auditors to reduce accounting costs
- Reduced head count and consultant costs mostly attributable to engineering and development since much of the heavy lifting on platform development has been completed
Consolidated and streamlined suppliers to reduce other costs including processing costs.
With these measures the Company anticipates the cash burn to be less than $450K by the end of the year with further reductions expected in Q1, 2023. With no new revenue or growth, the Company has sufficient cash on hand to take it into 2024.
- On November 8, 2022, the Company held a webinar hosted with Restaurants Canada, an industry-leading non-profit association representing over 30,000 foodservice providers and James Rhodes, leading hospitality tax lawyer.
