“We had a very busy quarter integrating both of our 2023 acquisitions, further streamlining of operations and keeping a close eye on our earnings,” said Steve Levely, CEO of Ackroo. “We knew we had lots to accomplish, while also being aware that Q1 revenues would be lower than Q4 seasonality wise and certainly much lower than Q1 2023 with the GGGolf revenue out. What we didn’t expect was a drop in one-time revenue orders in Q1. Our merchants simply ordered fewer additional items and our sales team won less deals in Q1 than previous quarters. We fortunately have seen a bounce back in early Q2 on both fronts and we have made a number of cost savings adjustments to compensate for it. In turn, between where the business was to start the year and the adjustments made during the period, afforded us another great earnings quarter. We delivered one of our highest adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue quarter in Company history, delivering a great 33%, which resulted in a 12% year over year EBITDA growth quarter. We believe EBITDA management is key to our future growth plans, so we plan to continue to manage and optimize for earnings so that we drive quarter over quarter growth in that area.”

The Company also announces that BDC Capital has agreed to extend their current loan term an additional 3 months. Currently Ackroo has an existing loan facility with a balance of $3,000,000 that matures on June 21, 2024, however, BDC Capital and Ackroo have mutually agreed to extend the maturity date to September 15, 2024.
