Montreal, Quebec–(Newsfile Corp. – October 22, 2021) – Peak Fintech Group Inc. (CSE: PKK) (OTC Pink: PKKFF) (“Peak” or the “Company”), an innovative Fintech service provider and manager of the Cubeler Business Hub, today updated its revenue, EBITDA and earnings guidance for the years 2021, 2022 and 2023 following the Company’s acquisition of analytics and AI company Cubeler Inc. (“Cubeler”), which will allow Peak to deploy its Business Hub concept first to North America and eventually to other markets around the world.

“There are several reasons why we’re so excited about our recent acquisition of Cubeler,” commented Peak CEO Johnson Joseph. “The most obvious ones are the expected impact on our revenue and our unfettered access to markets beyond China, but what I’m personally most enthusiastic about is introducing the world to our consumer-focused applications leveraging the vast amount of data at our disposal and our AI capabilities. While we don’t expect those applications to impact our 2021 numbers as they are still being developed, we do expect them to account for more than a third of our revenue by 2023 and to eventually become the biggest source of revenue for the Company shortly thereafter. Until that happens, we have revised our revenue guidance upward by 5% for 2021, 13% for 2022 and 30% for 2023. We now expect 2021 EBITDA and net income to be slightly lower than prior guidance as we invest in the deployment of our North American operations. But those numbers should be considerably higher in 2022 and 2023 than what was previously forecasted, as we expect EBITDA to come in at 36% of sales and a net profit margin of 25% by 2023.”

Updated Financial Guidance Summary

Revenue EBITDA** Net Income (Loss)
2020* $42.7M ($2.78M) ($5.5M)
2021 $109.0M $11.3M $4.4M
2022 $345.0M $81.8M $51.4M
2023 $814.0M $295.7M $204.5M

 

* Actual results

** EBITDA is provided as a supplementary earnings measure to assist readers in determining the Company’s ability to generate cash-flows from operations and to cover finance charges. This is a non-GAAP measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
