An active fiscal year focused on acquisitions
The fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 was a year dedicated to the identification, evaluation and negotiation with several acquisition targets. As the Audited Consolidated Financial Statements and MD&A reveal, the company’s expenses increased substantially for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, primarily the result of the non-cash impairment of the carrying value of the intellectual assets acquired as part of the company’s qualifying transaction in 2015, totaling $747,322. The additional increase in expenses of $567,677 in consulting fees were related primarily to acquisitions and related expenses. The combination of these major categories of expenses resulted in a net and comprehensive loss of $2,584,738 as compared to $1,557,719 in 2016.
Commenting on the results for the reporting period, Aurelio Useche, President and CEO stated: “It was a year dedicated to the execution of our first acquisition in our roll-up strategy. The process was challenging but effective”. Mr Useche added: “The impact from operations of newly acquired Bioganix will only take effect in the company’s Consolidated Financial Statements for the three-month period ended September 30, 2017 (Q1), which will be reported at the end of this month of November”
Major events impacting our Consolidated Statements of Financial Position
The Company reported significant changes to the Consolidated Statements of Financial Position, including an increase in total assets of $6,111,470 from $1,003,682 in 2016 to $7,115,152 in 2017. In parallel, the Company also reported significant changes in total liabilities of $4,343,533, from $447,031 in 2016 to $4,790,564 in 2017. Most of these changes transpired during the last quarter of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 and were primarily the result of an equity financing, a debenture financing and the execution of the definitive agreement and deposit to acquire BioGanix.
Commenting on these major events, Aurelio Useche, President and CEO stated: “From the execution of the binding agreement to the close of all three major events six months later, the company’s overall financial position has improved materially, positioning Relevium to continue to execute on the roll-up strategy”. Mr Useche added: “Relevium remains an entrepreneurial venture at heart and every single person in the team, from directors to the actual operators of the business, is guided by this principle in mind: We are Intense, Nimble and Lean”
The company looks forward to continuing to update shareholders.
