The Company’s total sales increased by 11% in the quarter ended August 31, 2016, from $528,853 in 2015, to $587,134. Comprehensive income increased from $70,175 in the period ended August 31, 2015 to $144,853 in the period ended August 31, 2016.
The Insurance Services division experienced a 32% increase in revenue, from $239,927 in 2015 to $316,500 in 2016. This is a continuing result of the fires in Fort McMurray and expanding upon existing customer relationships, mergers and acquisitions within the Canadian insurance company landscape and policy driven mandates within insurance companies to use the Armada Insurance Services replacement value settlement protocol.
The Retail Services division revenue was down 17% to $52,275 in 2016 from $62,875 in 2015.
The Dealer Services division revenue decreased 12%, from $179,571 in 2015, to $157,770 in 2016.
The Advertising/Marketing Services division, which derives its revenue from the sale of online third party advertising on CarCostCanada.com and TheCarMagazine.com, increased from $27,088 to $28,580, or 6%.
The Information Technology division revenue increased 65% to $32,009 in 2016, up from $19,392 in 2015. IT continues to offer technical support and web site hosting to hundreds of customers, and to develop new customer relationships on a regular basis.
Total expenses before amortization decreased to $432,503, compared to $447,913, a 3% decrease over last year. This is attributed to ceasing production at Mister Beer Inc. and continued cost-cutting measures implemented by management.
Cash on hand increased from $115,573 as at August 31, 2015 to $256,580 as at August 31, 2016. Accounts receivable increased by 81%, $498,019 as at August 31, 2016, compared to $275,514 last year. Related party accounts receivable decreased from $8,484 to $6,340. Accounts payable decreased to $205,680 as at August 31, 2016 from $225,605 a year earlier. Related party accounts payable decreased to $nil as at August 31, 2016, from $1,017 last year.
Based on a cash position of $256,580, accounts receivable of $498,019, accounts payable of $205,680, and current notes payable of $278,000, management feels that the Company is in a good position to meet all current and foreseeable financial obligations. With the closing of the Mister Beer production facility, expenses have been reduced. The other divisions of Armada are poised for revenue gains this fiscal year as a result of new project and feature launches as well as more than one significant partnership that the Insurance and Retail Service teams are working on. Management believes that the data divisions will not only remain very stable and profitable but begin to make significant inroads in new verticals that will result from our partnerships, project releases and new revenue streams.
The Company’s outlook is to continue to increase sales, update and improve our data services products and services, and deliver significantly better results to our shareholders by way of the following:
1. Build on the historical success of the Company’s ongoing sales and marketing efforts focused on increasing sales at Retail Services, Dealer Services and Insurance Services.
2. Exploit market awareness and demand for new vehicle pricing information and dealer referrals that result from the additional competition within that market space; by putting more emphasis on outside partners, data outsourcing and our underutilized online magazine TheCarMagazine.com
3. Continue to improve our relationships with some of the largest insurance companies in Canada and partner with some of these organizations to produce new products and services for their vast client base.
4. Maintain operating expenses and achieve the economies of scales of an Internet based business.
5. Expand third-party fee-based online advertising, by developing improved and more secure advertising methods.
