Real Matters Inc. (TSX: REAL) ("Real Matters" or the "Company"), a leading network management services platform for the mortgage and insurance industries, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended March 31, 2021.

"We were very pleased with our performance in the second quarter; we delivered strong financial results and launched our first Tier 1 lender in U.S. Title, marking the achievement of a significant milestone in the execution of our long-term growth strategy. Consolidated Net Revenue (1) increased 29.8% to $46.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA (1) increased 30.2% to $19.0 million from the second quarter of fiscal 2020, principally driven by higher volumes and margin expansion in our U.S. Title segment," said Real Matters Chief Executive Officer Brian Lang. "The U.S. mortgage market continued to demonstrate strong year-over-year growth in the second quarter and both our U.S. businesses outperformed the market from market share growth and new client additions. Our centralized U.S. Title revenues were up 78.4% compared with an estimated 71.1% increase in the refinance origination market, while U.S. Appraisal origination revenues were up 12.0% compared with an estimated 10.7% increase in the addressable market."

"Looking ahead, our principal focus continues to be market share growth and adding new clients. Given our performance track record and the breadth of our U.S. lender client base, we are confident in our ability to continue driving organic growth over the long-term with a view of achieving our Fiscal 2025 targets," added Lang.

Intention to Renew Normal Course Issuer Bid

We also announced today that, subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), the Company intends to renew the current NCIB for a 12-month period commencing June 11, 2021, and ending June 10, 2022. Our Board of Directors has approved the purchase of up to 4.0 million common shares for an aggregate purchase price not to exceed $56.0 million. If the NCIB is approved by the TSX, purchases will continue to be made through the facilities of the TSX and alternative Canadian trading systems at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition. We will determine the actual number of common shares purchased under the NCIB and the timing of such purchases.

The Company believes that at times, the prevailing share price for its common shares does not reflect its underlying value such that the repurchase of common shares for cancellation represents an attractive opportunity to return value to the Company's shareholders. The Company will use the NCIB in conjunction with its capital allocation strategy. All common shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled.

Our current NCIB commenced on June 11, 2020, and will expire on June 10, 2021, or earlier if we have acquired 4 million common shares. Since the beginning of our current NCIB, we have purchased for cancellation 2.0 million shares at a weighted average price of C$19.33. Since the inception of our first NCIB on June 11, 2018, the Company has acquired a total of 9.1 million shares at a weighted average price of C$10.12.

Conference Call and Webcast

A conference call to review the results will take place at 10:00 a.m. (ET) on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, hosted by Chief Executive Officer Brian Lang and Chief Financial Officer Bill Herman. An accompanying slide presentation will be posted to the Investor section of our website shortly before the call.
