HAMILTON, Ontario, May 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ackroo Inc. (the “ Company ” or “ Ackroo ”) (TSX-V: AKR) (OTC: AKRFF), a loyalty marketing, payments and point-of-sale technology and services provider, has filed its financial results for the period ended March 31, 2021. The results for the period ended March 31, 2021 reflect the Company’s 13 th consecutive adjusted EBITDA positive quarter and includes 82% of the revenue being recurring with an 88% gross profit margin. Throughout the quarter, the Company normalized the recently acquired GGGolf business to position the new AckrooPOS business unit for growth.

“Although Q1 was very challenging for Ackroo I am happy with several of the obstacles overcome and tasks completed to set us up for continued success,” said Steve Levely, CEO of Ackroo. “Similar to Q2 2020 we faced strict restrictions and great uncertainty from COVID-19 with many businesses locked down. Despite a reduction in our overall churn, the uncertainty led to many of our clients pulling back spend on one time revenue items and a few of our enterprise clients reducing their subscription size. We did however have great progress in sales and marketing. The team achieved a record number of new leads, client cross sells, and signed 50% more new clients in Q1 2021 versus Q1 2020. We continued to normalize our newly acquired GGGolf business by standardizing contracts, optimizing support and adjusting the team itself. We managed to balance out the challenges with lots of progress and delivered our 13 th consecutive adjusted EBITDA positive quarter.”
