Fourth Consecutive Quarterly Positive Normalized EBITDA

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – November 29, 2023) – YANGAROO Inc. (TSXV: YOO) (OTC Pink: YOOIF) (“Yangaroo“, “Company“), a software leader in media asset workflow and distribution solutions, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023. The full text of the Financial Statements and Management Discussion & Analysis is available at www.yangaroo.com and at www.sedar.com.

Yangaroo is pleased to announce that during the third quarter of 2023 the Company realized significant improvements with respect to operating income and cash-flow generation, as compared to losses incurred in prior periods. These improvements are largely attributable to a modest increase in sales volumes combined with stringent cost controls across the business.

Historically, the Company’s Q3 is a seasonally slow period. During the period, Advertising Division revenue remained flat year-over-year. The Awards Division results were behind compared to this time in the prior year, which is attributed to the timing of the award shows. The Music Division revenue continues to remain down year-over-year, which is mainly due to fewer audio and music video deliveries by our major record label clients.

  • Advertising Division

    • Revenue of $1,054,157 in Q3’23 versus revenue of $1,065,204 in Q3’22

  • Entertainment Group (Music & Awards Divisions)

    • The Company completed additional head-count reductions in the first half of the year and resulted in current quarter salary expenses of $1,097,390 or a savings of $236,108 versus the third quarter of 2023.

    • General and administrative expenses continued to decline with savings of $109,682 versus the third quarter of 2023 resulting from continued efforts to reduce over-head expenditures.

    • The Company generated $247,900 of normalized EBITDA in Q3’23 vs $2,205 in Q3’22.

Grant Schuetrumpf, CEO of Yangaroo, stated, “We’re pleased to provide consecutive and sequential quarters of Normalized EBITDA generation, primarily derived from stabilizing our operations whilst maintaining services for our valued clients. We are now focused on growth opportunities organically and through our continual interest in M&A. We continue to manage modest advancements in business development and sales opportunities compared to prior years and are hopeful some of the larger business development prospects will start to convert.

“On November 9, 2023, Yangaroo announced an asset purchase transaction with Millenia 3 Communications, Inc., Millenia3 has been a trusted partner to major global entertainment companies, media agencies, and consumer brands, providing tailor-made ad operations services, including media and traffic management, which will continue into the foreseeable future. This expansion extends Yangaroo’s advertising service capabilities with premium multi-year contracted clients and will further utilize Yangaroo’s technology to streamline the Millenia 3 service offering.

“The advertising division managed a modest increase in the volume of clients while seeking opportunities to expand current client’s use of services. Our ancillary production services, including short-form versioning for the Direct Response customers, and long-form digitization, continues to bring in new project-based opportunities. Our closed captioning and analytics complete a full-service offering to the market where we are integrating Millenia 3 clients use of the workflows and technology. Innovation is always a priority, and with our development team, we continue improving the DMDS platform to streamline business-to-business workflows whilst expanding our platform capabilities for improved self-serve use.
