  • Gross profit declined by 24.7% to $8.0 million from $10.6 million in Q1 ’20 (9.4% decline excluding the disposed business)

For example, we have already signed just over 60 new contracts in our Commercial business this year. Our markets are recovering and our business is steadily improving. We look forward to what we expect will be growing momentum into a stronger second half of the year. Q1 2020 was the last materially pre-pandemic quarter that we experienced.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. Other companies may have different definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures, and as a result they may not be comparable with non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are calculated in a manner consistent with that shown in the table at the end of this press release and should not be considered alternatives to measurements required by U.S. GAAP, such as net revenue, operating profit or net income, and should not be considered a measure of the Company’s liquidity.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, among several other metrics, to assess and analyze its operational results and trends. The Company also believes these measures are useful to investors because they are common operating performance metrics as well as metrics routinely used to assess potential enterprise value.

(1) Acquisition, capital raising and other non-recurring expenses primarily relate to capital raising expenses, acquisition and integration expenses and legal expenses incurred in relation to matters outside the ordinary course of business. In addition, the Company included non-recurring expenses related to salaries, rent and bad debts which were a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to government mandated restrictions, the Company had to temporarily close all of its offices and, due to social distancing restrictions, could not make full use of these facilities for significant periods of time during the year, both in the US and UK. These restrictions are still ongoing in 2021. The Company calculated an adjustment of $1.85 million for the time these offices were closed or partially not used due to COVID-19 related restrictions. In addition, the Company reduced headcounts throughout the Company. The reduction in 2019 related to performance and in 2020 and 2021 related to COVID-19 staff reductions. These positions are no longer included in the current cost structure. The Company had internal staff of 291 just before the onset of the pandemic and 193 by the end of Q1 2021. Salary adjustments are standard treatment for adjustment to EBITDA for management reporting purposes.

(2) Other non-cash charges primarily relate to staff option and share compensation expense, expense for shares issued to directors for board services, and consideration paid for consulting services.

(3) Adjusted EBITDA of Divested Business for the period prior to the divestment date.

(4) Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA excludes the Adjusted EBITDA of Divested Business for the period prior to the divestment date.

(5) Adjusted Gross Profit excludes gross profit of business divested in September 2020, for the period prior to divestment date.
