TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Greenbrook TMS Inc. (TSX: GTMS) (“Greenbrook” or the “Company”), today announced its first quarter 2020 (“Q1 2020”) operational and financial results. All values in this news release are in United States dollars, unless otherwise stated.

FIRST QUARTER 2020 FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Quarterly revenue increased by 73% to $11.4 million, up $4.8 million from the first quarter of fiscal 2019 (“Q1 2019”).
  • Quarterly regional operating income increased by 18% to $0.7 million, up $0.1 million from Q1 2019.
  • Added eight active TMS Centers this quarter, with an additional 14 TMS Centers in development, bringing the total Company network to 124 TMS Centers. This represents an increase of 85% from Q1 2019.
  • As anticipated, the Company has started to scale into its centralized business infrastructure with a significant decrease in the year-over-year growth rate of aggregate corporate costs.
  • On May 6, 2020, the Company announced that it has launched a public offering of common shares and intends to issue a minimum of 8,484,849 common shares and a maximum of 10,909,091 common shares at a price of C$1.65 per common share for gross proceeds of a minimum of approximately C$14,000,000 and a maximum of approximately C$18,000,000.

Bill Leonard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Greenbrook commented:

“We are very pleased with our strong Q1 2020 results despite the challenging operating environment imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic late in the quarter. As an essential business, we have taken the necessary steps to protect our patients, employees and physician partners in order to continue to be able to deliver the highest quality service at all of our TMS Centers. I am particularly proud of the initiatives that our management, employees and physician partners have put in place to expand our ability to interact with patients and potential patients virtually.”

Mr. Leonard added: “While we expect the second quarter of this year to reflect a decline in treatments as a result of the government-mandated restrictions imposed in response to the pandemic, we believe this to be temporary, as we are starting to see an increase in new patient starts and inquiries across the majority of our centers. The pandemic is significantly worsening what is already a staggering unmet need for mental health treatment, making TMS therapy more essential now than ever.”

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information

Certain information in this press release, including with respect to the Company’s future financial or operating performance, constitutes forward-looking information. In some cases, but not necessarily in all cases, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”, “targets”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “an opportunity exists”, “is positioned”, “estimates”, “intends”, “assumes”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate” or “believes”, or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might”, “will” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances contain forward-looking information. Statements containing forward-looking information are not historical facts but instead represent management’s expectations, estimates and projections regarding future events.

Forward-looking information is necessarily based on a number of opinions, assumptions and estimates that, while considered reasonable by the Company as of the date of this press release, are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information, including but not limited to the factors described in greater detail in the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s current annual information form available at www.sedar.com. These factors are not intended to represent a complete list of the factors that could affect the Company; however, these factors should be considered carefully. There can be no assurance that such estimates and assumptions will prove to be correct. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date of this press release, and the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update or alter statements containing any forward-looking information, or the factors or assumptions underlying them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Cautionary Note Regarding Non-IFRS Measures

This press release makes reference to certain non-IFRS measures. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures are provided as additional information to complement those IFRS measures by providing further understanding of the Company’s results of operations from management’s perspective. Accordingly, these measures are not intended to represent, and should not be considered as alternatives to, loss attributable to the common shareholders of Greenbrook or other performance measures derived in accordance with IFRS as measures of operating performance or operating cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. In addition to the Company’s results determined in accordance with IFRS, the Company uses non-IFRS measures, including “EBITDA” and “Adjusted EBITDA”. These non-IFRS measures are used to provide investors with supplemental measures of the Company’s operating performance and thus highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures. See the Company’s MD&A for a further discussion of these non-IFRS financial measures and for a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to loss attributable to the common shareholders of Greenbrook.
