TORONTO, Dec. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iLOOKABOUT Corp. (TSXV:ILA; OTCQB:ILATF) (“ILA” or “the Company”) today announced that its unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, and the related Management’s Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”) are available at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website at http://www.ilookabout.com/investor-relations/financial-information. Shareholders may request a hard copy of this material by directing their request to: iLOOKABOUT Corp., Office of the CFO, 408-383 Richmond Street, London ON, N6A 3C4.
ILA reported that, during the quarter the Company closed its acquisition of Clarocity Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries (“Clarocity”). Historically, the substandard performance of Clarocity was attributable to a weak financial position due to the significant debt burden inherited from its parent company. ILA has made a significant investment in the reduction of the financial obligations of Clarocity. As a result we are seeing an increase in Clarocity’s business, both with current and new clients, as concerns regarding the viability of the company are alleviated. In addition to growing its revenue base, Clarocity has recently launched its proprietary FusionOMS valuation platform (https://www.clarocityvs.com/fusionoms/) for licensing to enterprises.
“We are pleased with our significant revenue growth and early signs of success from our acquisition of Clarocity. The addition of Clarocity to our platform has given us a material presence within the US real estate market, which also includes adding prominent clients,” said Gary Yeoman, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of ILA, “We are in the early days of the integration process, but are confident that in the near term we will begin realizing the benefit of acquisition synergies from a product and talent standpoint, which will result in contribution to future Adjusted EBITDA and value to our shareholders.”
The Company’s property tax division continues to see steady organic growth as it implements its US expansion strategy. It is a critical component in allowing the Company to execute on its overall growth strategy.

2 Adjusted EBITDA is an unaudited non-GAAP measure and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures employed by other reporting issuers. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides meaningful information with respect to the financial performance and value of the Company, as items that may obscure the underlying trends in the business performance are excluded. Adjusted EBITDA is defined and calculated by the Company as earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation/amortization of property and equipment, intangible assets and right-of-use assets, share-based compensation expense and other costs or income that are: (i) non-operating; (ii) non-recurring; and/or (iii) are related to strategic initiatives. The Company classifies income or costs as non-recurring if income or costs similar in nature are not reasonably expected to occur within the next two years nor have occurred during the prior two years, and such costs are significant.
