Mosaic’s first quarter 2021 financial results exhibit an acceleration of the strong operational momentum that surfaced in the second half of 2020 as Pandemic-related influences began to ease for the underlying portfolio companies. Mosaic demonstrated a reduced reliance from government wage subsidies in the first quarter of 2021 with growth in both revenue and profitability levels over the same period last year when removing the benefit of CEWS funding in the current quarter.
Reflecting on the strong first quarter results and the increasing levels of customer demand across the portfolio, management has an expectation for solid overall growth in 2021 after normalizing for the CEWS funding received in 2020. Notwithstanding the current health impacts of the third wave of the Pandemic, Mosaic’s portfolio has illustrated its resiliency and the benefits of its underlying diversification.
Mark Gardhouse, President and CEO commented “We are pleased to deliver a third consecutive quarter of improved operational and financial results since bottoming in the second quarter of 2020 with the beginning of the Pandemic. With the momentum we have exhibited year-to-date in 2021 coupled to continued improvements in the overall economy and further tailwinds expected from commodity prices, we believe Mosaic is well positioned to deliver healthy returns for our shareholders in 2021 and beyond.”
Management will hold a conference call to discuss first quarter 2021 results on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 10:00 AM ET. All interested parties are invited to join the conference call by dialing 1-855-353-9183 from within Canada or the U.S., then entering the participant Code 63121#. A recording of the conference call will be made available on Mosaic’s website at www.mosaiccapitalcorp.com.
