Currency Exchange International Announces Financial Results for the Three-Month Period Ended January 31, 2022



March 16, 2022

Toronto, Canada – Currency Exchange International, Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX: CXI; OTCBB: CURN), today reported net income of $1.5 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2022, compared to the net loss of $1.3 million reported in the prior year (all figures are in U.S. dollars except where otherwise indicated). The complete financial statements and MD&A can be found on the Company's SEDAR profile at  www.sedar.com.

Randolph Pinna, CEO of the Company, stated, “We are extremely pleased with the Group’s performance in the first quarter, as these results demonstrate the benefits of developing and executing against a focused strategic plan. Despite the ongoing pandemic, CXI delivered 25% sequential revenue growth, its highest quarterly revenue ever as each of our strategic pillars contributed to the increase. Our payments business in both Canada and the United States continue to add new clients with predictable revenue patterns throughout the year. Growth in our global banknote segment has accelerated with Exchange Bank of Canada’s participation in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s foreign bank international cash services program. The domestic banknote demand benefitted from the United States easing restrictions in November to allow European, Mexican, and Canadian residents the ability to travel more freely to America. While we remain vigilant to the various risks that may impact the recovery in international travel, we are confident that CXI is much more resilient to fluctuations in demand than it was prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to continuing this trend in the quarters and years ahead.”

Corporate and Operational Highlights:

  • The Company added 272 new customer relationships comprising 682 locations, of which 199 relationships representing 264 locations were added in the United States and 73 relationships representing 418 locations were added in Canada;
  • International payments continued to grow, with the Company processing 23,478 transactions representing $2.34 billion in volume in the quarter, up from 15,383 transactions representing $1.56 in volume in the comparative period in the prior year;
  • The Direct-to-Consumer division continues to grow, as the Company obtained five additional state licenses such that we are now able to service thirty-six states through our OnlineFX platform. The Company also opened a new branch location during the quarter in the Stanford Shopping Centre in the strategic San Francisco Bay area. Through an agency relationship, the Company opened a new location at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International airport.

Financial Highlights for the Three-month Period Ended January 31, 2022, Compared to the Three-month Period Ended January 31, 2021:

  • Revenue increased 245% or $7.4 million to $12.5 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2022, as compared to $5.1 million in the three-months ending January 31, 2021. The Banknote segment accounted for $10.3 million of the revenue, an increase of 199% over the prior year. The Payments segment represented $2.2 million of the revenue, an increase of 31% over the prior year;
  • The Company generated net operating income of $3.1 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2022 as compared to a net operating loss of $1.3 million in the same period in the prior year;
  • EBITDA, adjusted to include lease payments, was $2.7 million in the three-month period ended January 31, 2022, an increase of $4.3 million from the same period in the prior year;
  • The Company generated net income of $1.5 million in the three-month period ended January 31, 2022, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2022;
  • Earnings per share was $0.23 on a basic and fully diluted basis for the three-month period ended January 31, 2022, compared to a net loss per share of $0.27 in the three-month period ended January 31, 2021;
  • The Company generated positive cash flow from operating activities, excluding the impact of working capital changes but including lease payments of $2.2 million in the three-month period ended January 31, 2022, versus negative operating cash flow of $1.5 million in the same period in the prior year; and
  • The Company had a strong liquidity and capital position at January 31, 2022, with $118.4 million in current assets and $59.3 million in net equity at January 31, 2022.

As demonstrated in the table below, seasonality is reflected in the timing of when foreign currencies are in greater or lower demand. In a normal operating year there is seasonality to the Company's operations, with higher revenues generated from March until September and lower revenues from October to February. This coincides with peak tourism seasons in North America when there are generally more travelers entering and leaving the United States and Canada. The coronavirus pandemic has significantly impacted the ability to travel, and therefore the three-month periods ending, April 30, 2020, July 31, 2020, October 31, 2020, January 31, 2021, April 30, 2021, July 31, 2021, October 31, 2021, and January 31, 2022, are not indicative of typical seasonality.
