Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – September 13, 2022) – Solution Financial Inc. (TSX: SFI) (OTCQX: SLNFF) (the “Company), a leading provider of luxury automotive and yacht leasing in Canada, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ending July 31, 2022.
Earnings Highlights for the Quarter:
Margins were up to 36% compared to 26% for the prior year quarter as revenues were primarily from high margin leasing compared to lower margin vehicle sales.
Net income was $376,928 compared to $406,455 during the prior year quarter
Adjusted net income(1) was $526,797, down marginally from $557,545 during the comparative quarter.
Total lease portfolio increased to $27,317,077 compared to $26,025,286 during the prior quarter.
“This quarter really showed the resiliency of our business model as we stayed focused on our core leasing services despite continued economic challenges,” began Bryan Pang, Solution’s CEO. “During 2021, we capitalized on vehicle resale opportunities caused by the supply chain impact on the luxury auto sector whereas this last quarter we focused more on helping our luxury dealership network finance vehicle sales despite generally slower sales volumes. Our recently announced $15 million financing facility with ATB Financial is a great milestone, giving us access to more resources to support more dealerships in our existing and expansion markets. Our goals remain focused on growth within the luxury market using a disciplined approach that has proven successful for the last 18 years- providing competitive market rates to good clients, focusing on leasing good vehicles, backed by good collateral, and proactively supporting customers and dealerships well beyond the initial financing event. Revenues may remain lower through these economic slowdowns, but we remain committed to focusing on operating profitably and building long term shareholder value,” concluded Bryan.
Solution is reporting net income of $376,928 or $0.004, per share for the quarter ending July 31, 2022. This compares to net income of $406,455 or $0.005 per share for the quarter ending July 31, 2021.
Adjusted net income, which is more reflective of actual cash earnings, for the quarter ending July 31, 2022, was $526,797(1) or $0.006 per share compared to $531,092 or $0.006 per share for the quarter ending July 31, 2021. Adjusted Net Income excludes the non-cash accretion expense related to the convertible debentures and right-of-use assets of $55,807, income tax provision of $80,000 and amortization expense of $14,062.
Solution’s operating cash flow for the nine months ending July 31, 2022 decreased to $126,863 (net of the operating lease asset disposals) compared to $3,109,803 during the comparative quarter of 2021. With increasing prime interest rates occurring over the last several months, the Company utilized surplus cash to pay down the operating financing line to minimize interest expenses.
Lease Portfolio
At July 31, 2022, Solution had 323 vehicles in its lease portfolio, a net decrease of 3 vehicles to bring the total lease portfolio to $27 million.
At July 31, 2022, the average remaining lease term for the portfolio was 1.9 years, weighted by net book value for each vehicle. At July 31, 2022, Solutions’ 323 leases were generating annualized gross rental and lease revenue of approximately $7.5 million.
