TORONTO, ONTARIO — (Aug. 24, 2018) Symbility Solutions Inc. (“Symbility”or the “Company”) (TSX.V: SY), a global software company focused on modernizing the insurance industry, announced financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2018. “The first half of 2018 saw global economic losses from natural disasters down 64 percent from the 10-year average1, resulting in the lowest claims volumes in five years2. Although Symbility achieved 10 percent revenue growth over the first half of 2018, the steep decline in weather severity has impacted our property division’s revenue.” said James Swayze, CEO of Symbility. “Most encouraging over the first half is that the number of contract signings in our Property segment increased 148 percent in 2018 as compared to 2017. The combination of contract signings, pipeline expansion, new product launches and the strength of our strategic services allows us to reiterate our revenue guidance of $40 million for 2018 and feel very confident about continued, strong growth in the coming years.”

  3. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure and is calculated as earnings before interest income, taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment losses, stock-based compensation, and other non-recurring gains or losses including transaction costs related to acquisition and restructuring cost. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure that facilitates period-to-period operating comparisons. Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings (loss) prepared
