“Our record results reflect the resiliency of the home renovation industry during the pandemic,” said Doug Vickerson, CEO of Renoworks. “The home renovation boom has presented tremendous opportunity for construction product brands to embrace digital design solutions that deliver interactive engagement for their audiences.”
“Renoworks has consistently demonstrated that our solutions are a natural fit for construction product brands in this capacity and more. The pandemic has caused many to embrace digital transformation solutions such as those provided by Renoworks in order to capitalize on the rapid growth of consumer home renovation spending, a trend that does not seem to be abating in the United States as the economy reopens. As the Company continues to innovate its visualizer platform and design-focused offerings, expand across multiple categories, and position itself as an essential player in the design experience of the value chain, Renoworks is meeting the growing demand head-on to further establish its presence in the industry.”
Mr. Vickerson added, “Investments in innovation and our talent pool remains a key strategy for continued revenue growth and scalability of our platform. It is one of the many reasons why I am proud of our progress as an organization and look forward to the rest of 2021 with a great deal of optimism for the Company and the industry.”

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to cast 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. The Company’s results have been positively impacted by the pandemic due to the increase in home renovation activity. However, continued quarantines, labor shortages or other disruptions for extended periods of time, or at the end of those measures, may adversely affect the Company’s revenues, ability to provide services, operating results or the ability to raise funds through debt or equity. The extent to which the pandemic could impact the Company’s results will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, and will include new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the pandemic and actions taken to contain the coronavirus or its impact, among other unpredictable events.
Regarding COVID-19, management developed detailed mitigation plans commencing March 17, 2020, and meets with the Board of Directors weekly to review the Company status. Employee safety and health were paramount. Every employee has worked remotely since March 15, 2020 and every employee reports vigilance in practicing safe and healthy habits at home. Further, there have been no known negative impacts to deadlines or productivity with regards to customer service, software development, or employee morale.

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).
