Vancouver, BC: January 31, 2017 – Uniserve Communications Corporation (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that as a result of the second quarter corporate restructuring activity, the fiscal Q2 2017 financial results show a 28% reduction in operating expenses, a 16.6% increase in revenues and a 145% improvement in EBITDA versus the Q2 2016 results.

The Company finished the quarter with:

  • A positive Q2 2017 EBITDA of $85K vs Q2 2016 loss of $188k
  • Gross revenues for the quarter ending November 2016 of $1.8m representing an 16.6% increase over the comparable quarter in 2016
  • A positive EBITDA of $50K in the first six months of fiscal 2017

These excellent results are directly attributed to the company’s restructuring activity. Uniserve focused on strengthening its internal infrastructure, its leadership group and its investment into its data centre. Product expansion has also resulted in investments into infrastructure as well as building out of the consumer offering in the broadband arena. The external efforts focused on directing the sales team to source and sign larger Enterprise size IT projects, where Uniserve has started to build a portfolio of on-premise managed services.

As part of the overall strategy acceleration the Company will continue its efforts to improve its financial structure by addressing its working capital deficit and other liabilities.

Uniserve’s President and COO, Hashim Mitha: “Having a clear vision and a dedicated team of exceptional people has made this process fun. I am delighted that our efforts spent on building out the strategy are paying off so quickly.”

The company aims to strengthen all three pillars of its audience offerings (Consumer, Business to Business and Enterprise IT) which will continue to boost the company’s growth, overall revenues, and profitability.
