Urbanfund Corp. Reports Financial Results For the Year Ended March 31, 2014

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Mitchell Cohen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Urbanfund Corp. (TSX VENTURE: UFC) (the "Company"), confirmed today that the Company has filed financial results for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 (the "Consolidated Financial Statements").

For the three month period ended March 31, 2014 the Company reported earnings before income taxes of $209,776 on revenue of $1,158,263 compared to earnings before income taxes of $171,255 on revenue of $704,020 for the corresponding period in 2013. The majority of this increase is principally attributable to an increase in rental income resulting from the Company's acquisition of a 10% interest in 10 residential projects consisting of 1,870 residential suites located in Quebec City and Montreal (the "Quebec Properties") subsequent to March 1, 2013.

Rental expenses for the three month period ended March 31, 2014 increased to $476,854 compared to $240,640 for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase is primarily the result of the Quebec Properties coming on-line subsequent to March 1, 2013.

The following selected financial data is derived from the unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements:

Note:


(1)  Basic Net Income per share is computed using the weighted average
     number of common shares outstanding during the year. Diluted Net Income
     per share is computed using the weighted average number of common and
     potential common shares outstanding during the year. Potential common
     shares consist of the incremental common shares issuable upon the
     conversion of preferred shares and the exercise of stock options using
     the treasury stock method.

Financing costs increased during the three month period ended March 31, 2014 to $241,392 from $198,041 for the corresponding period ended in 2013. This increase is a result of the Quebec Properties coming on-line subsequent to March 1, 2013. Administrative costs during the period ended March 31, 2014 decreased to $72,329 from $75,015 for the corresponding period in 2013.

Funds from Operations ("FFO") is a non-IFRS measure and should not be construed as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with IFRS. However, FFO is an operating performance measure which is widely used by the real estate industry and the Company has calculated FFO in accordance with the recommendations of the Real Property Association of Canada ("REALpac").

FFO, or any other non-IFRS performance measure, is not intended to represent operating profits for the period or from a property. Furthermore, it should not be viewed as an alternative to net income, cash flow from operating activities or similar measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with IFRS.

FFO is a widely accepted supplemental measure of financial performance for real estate entities; however, it does not represent amounts available for capital programs, debt service obligations, commitments or uncertainties. FFO should not be interpreted as an indicator of cash generated from operating activities and is not indicative of cash available to fund operating expenditures, or for the payment of cash distributions. FFO is simply one measure of operating performance.

FFO for the periods ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 are as follows:

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
