LAVAL, Quebec, Nov. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urbanimmersive Inc. (“Urbanimmersive,” the “Company” or “UI”) (TSX VENTURE: UI) (OTC PINK: UBMRF), the leading real estate content marketing platform, is pleased to announce its preliminary unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter ended September 30, 2019.

The Company wishes to emphasize that these preliminary unaudited financial results are based on management’s initial compilation of financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 and are subject to modifications in conjunction with the completion of the Company’s annual closing and audit processes. 

For Q4-19, the Company generated revenues of $864k ($812k for Q4-18), gross margin of $816k ($273k for Q4-18), operational income of $321k (-$719k for Q4-18) and cash flows from operating activities of $407k (-$277k for Q4-18).

Signature of a Letter of Intent for the refinancing of the US term loan

The Company is pleased to announce the signature of a letter of intent with a financial institution to refinance its US term loan with a current balance of Can$ 1.15 million. Terms of this 3-year loan include a 10-year amortization period, a variable interest rate of prime rate + 5.0% (7.45%) and similar guarantees to the existing loan. Under those new terms, the Company shall benefit from a reduced debt service on the loan (principal and interest) of nearly half with monthly payments to decrease from $36.0k to $18.5k for an annual saving of approx. $210k. This letter of intent also includes a $300k term loan (when needed) to support the Company's sales and marketing and a $600k line of credit for strategic acquisition opportunities. Closing of this financing is expected before the end of this current quarter (Q1-20).

Business update – Operational savings and new contracts

During the current quarter (Q1-20) and following an in-depth review of Company’s products and services, the Company realized additional operational synergies that will ultimately generate more than $200k in annual savings.  In terms of sales, the Company wishes to highlight the recent addition of two new major customers, including a 3-year agreement with a first Quebec-based client using the Tourbuzz platform, which together should generate additional revenues of approx. $60k/year.

Moreover, the Company signed a marketing content agreement with a well-known influencer based in Australia to produce marketing content in the real estate photography industry in relation to Urbanimmersive suite of products and services.

"Our Q4-19 preliminary financial results are well aligned with our expectations, confirmed our capacity to generate high margins and our ability to self-sustain financially our activities with a third quarter in a row of positive cash flows from operations. We also observe a growing traction from our customer onboarding process for our various products. This accelerating traction and improved financial situation should provide us more flexibility to invest in the development and marketing of our new business solutions and to become more active with strategic M&A in the months ahead", said Ghislain Lemire, President and CEO of Urbanimmersive.
