The recently declared pandemic for the COVID-19 virus has caused significant future uncertainty.
The continued spread of COVID-19 in North America and globally could have an adverse impact on the company’s operations and financial results. While the impact of COVID-19 is expected to be temporary, the current circumstances are dynamic and the immediate impact to the Company’s business operations can’t be reasonably estimated at this time.
The extent to which the coronavirus could impact the Company’s results will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the coronavirus and actions taken to contain the coronavirus or its impact, among others.
Regarding COVID-19, management developed detailed mitigation plans commencing March 17, 2020, and meets with the Board of Directors weekly to review the Company’s status.
Firstly, employee safety and health were paramount. Every employee has worked remotely since March 15 and every employee is encouraged to exercise vigilance in practicing safe and healthy habits at home. No employee nor their family are known to have contracted the coronavirus as of today’s date. The transition to remote working proceeded as planned.
Further, there have been no known material negative impacts to deadlines or productivity regarding customer service, software development, or employee morale.
Finally, no employees were laid off and no employee hours were reduced as at today’s date as a result of COVID-19. We continue to remotely interface with customers and monitor any cash flow impacts that may arise.

Adjusted EBITDA is a measure not recognized under IFRS. However, management of Renoworks believes that most shareholders, creditors, other stakeholders and investment analysts prefer to have these measures included as reported measures of operating performance, a proxy for cash flow, and to facilitate valuation analysis. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest income, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock based compensation, restructuring costs, impairment charges and other non-recurring gains or losses. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure that facilitates period-to-period operating comparisons.
Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Readers are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA is not an alternative to measures determined in accordance with IFRS and should not, on its own, be construed as indicators of performance, cash flow or profitability. References to the Renoworks’ Adjusted EBITDA should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis of Renoworks posted on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
