Telehop Announces Positive First Quarter Results for 2014

Telehop Communications Inc. (“Telehop” or the “Company”), (TSX-V:HOP) today announced its financial performance during the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Telehop has continued to deliver a positive Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter of $190,888 compared to $62,478 in 2013. EBITDA for the quarter was $128,219 after considering transaction costs of $62,669 incurred during the quarter related to acquisitions.

The Company is now accelerating our product expansion into higher growth markets of voice and data wireless services. Through the acquisitions of G3 Telecom and, subsequent to the first quarter, iRoam, Telehop is now diversifying revenues from declining traditional long distance dial around markets. Product offerings of SIM cards, data roaming devices and worldwide Wi-Fi roaming solutions are showing opportunities for revenue growth in a variety of enterprise and consumer offerings. The Company expects to continue to explore expansion opportunities in these emerging wireless driven markets.

“This quarter we were able to start integrating G3 operations with Telehop operations and begin delivering on our growth strategy. The G3 acquisition in the first quarter and the iRoam acquisition in the second, are perfect springboards to new markets and customers,” said Rajiv Jagota, President CEO, Telehop.

Company highlights during the quarter include:

  • Completed purchase agreement to acquire shares and assets of G3 Telecom long distance and wireless business on February 28, 2014.
  • Start operational and sales consolidation of Telehop and G3 companies and develop marketing roadmap for 2014.
  • Began the application process for wireless spectrum license transfers with Industry Canada and various jurisdictions in the United States. Industry Canada has subsequently approved the transfers.

The Company  announced that it had filed an application with the TSX Venture Exchange to extend the expiry date of 3.75 million $0.15 share purchase warrants that were issued on July 24, 2012 and currently are set to expire  July 24, 2014. Telehop is requesting the warrants be extended to January 31st, 2015.
