Strong year-over-year revenue growth; Q3’19 Revenues up 13% over Q3’18
TORONTO, CANADA November 7, 2019 – YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V: YOO, OTCBB: YOOIF), (“The Company, or “Yangaroo”) the leading secure digital media management and distribution company, today announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019. The full text of the Financial Statements and Management Discussion & Analysis is available at www.yangaroo.com and at www.sedar.com. Please note that all currency in this press release is denoted in Canadian dollars.
“>Consolidated revenue for the third quarter of 2019 was up 13% on a year-over-year basis and was essentially flat compared to the second quarter of 2019. Advertising revenue was up 8% over the same period. The growth for Q3’19 reflected our continued customer acquisition efforts and new client signings in what is traditionally a slow period in the advertising industry,” said Gary Moss, President and CEO of Yangaroo. “We continue to reiterate our 15% exit annual run rate growth for 2019 in advertising revenue and are happy to announce that we have signed significant new advertising customers. We expect sales from these new customers will commence late in the fourth quarter of 2019 and continue to ramp up into 2020”.
Gary Moss further added, “We continue to invest in our business with sales-pipeline growth and platform upgrade initiatives. In 2020 we expect to release our new Clearance Platform which will help our advertising clients solve workflow issues and provide us with a key competitive advantage in the advertising delivery market. In conjunction with these initiatives the Company expects to further use its strong cash and working capital positions to help us realize growth in the US, Latin American, and Canadian markets. Our entertainment business continues to see steady revenues. New product offerings in music delivery have generated growth from direct artist distribution to radio and television offsetting challenging market conditions.
We expect to recommence our share buy-back program in early-November 2019 and to continue purchasing through to the end of the year subject to normal trading blackout restrictions. To date our share buy-back program has resulted in a total of 325,000 shares acquired and cancelled by the Company at a weighted average price of $0.13 / share. We intend to continue to buy-back shares opportunistically given the low share price range”.
As at November 6, 2019, the Company had a cash balance of approximately $1.8 million.
Working capital of $1.9M, as at September 30, 2019, was negatively impacted by the adoption of IFRS 16 in 2019, which resulted in an additional $0.2 million in current liabilities related to leased office space when compared to the previous year comparison periods.

|$CDN||Three Months||Nine Months|
|Normalized EBITDA (loss)||318,514||204,301||349,666||432,232|
