Statement from Roy Sebag, CEO of Goldmoney Inc.

In the third quarter of fiscal year 2024, Goldmoney Inc. produced $6.0 million in IFRS Net income and $6.0 million of Non-IFRS Adjusted Net Income. This is our ninth consecutive quarter of profitability under the Non-IFRS Adjusted Income metric which excludes non-cash items such as precious metal and FX movements as well as depreciation and stock compensation.

Our precious metals business continued to perform well producing $3.8 million of quarterly operating income. This result reflects the disciplined cost-savings measures that were implemented over the past two years. These measures have become more visible in our operating results and will continue to positively impact our precious metals earnings over the remainder of the fiscal year. With the SchiffGold business now fully divested, it is also easier for shareholders to compute the long-run earnings power inherent to our core Goldmoney.com precious metals business.

Our property investment business produced $3.0 million quarterly operating income and $2.7 million of net income, reflecting the ownership of our three investment properties at quarter-end. This business segment, conducted through Goldmoney Properties Limited has substantially transformed our group's earnings power by introducing another long-term income stream. At quarter end, our property portfolio had an average remaining lease term of 14.75 years. Consequently, Goldmoney Properties is expected to contribute significant inflation-indexed cash flows to Goldmoney Inc. over the next decade and beyond. Perhaps more importantly, we believe that the three investment properties acquired from June 2023-December 2023 have intrinsic value in excess of the remaining contractual income. This is because each of the properties serves a mission critical purpose within the built-up environment either to the local community or the tenants who occupy them.

At the parent level, we shall continue to act prudently and when opportunities arise, intend to redeploy the cash flows generated by our two-core businesses. At this juncture, the options are rather clear: (i) further share repurchases at the parent level, (ii) precious metals purchases at the parent level, (ii) accelerated mortgage principal repayment at GPL, (iii) further acquisitions of investment property at GPL, and (iv) other capital investment activities at the parent level.

At Menē, our 24-karat jewelry business, the new management team continues the important work in reforming the business model for renewed sustainable growth. Shareholders should look to Menē's earnings release for a more comprehensive update from the company's CEO. The entire Goldmoney board supports the long-term strategic plan being executed by management and is pleased with the results thus far. Menē repaid in Q3 2024 the full balance of precious metal loans owed to Goldmoney Inc.

Goldmoney repurchased 122,800 shares of the company during the quarter. Additionally, 212,600 shares were canceled due to the divestiture of Schiff Gold. In total, 335,400 shares were canceled during the quarter resulting in shares outstanding of 13,449,000 on December 31, 2023. Since quarter end, the Company has repurchased and canceled a further 151,300 shares resulting in 13,306,350 shares outstanding as of February 1, 2024.
