1 Percentage change is presented in absolute values

Revenue: For the quarter ended December 31, 2020, revenues increased by $17,920 or 48% over prior year driven primarily by full quarter consolidation of GBT’s financial results compared to one moth in 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2020, revenues increased by $152,058 or 320% as compared to the same period in the prior year driven by the consolidation of GBT’s financial results.

Gross margin: For the quarter ended December 31 , 2020, the gross margin decreased from 49% to 36% compared to the same period in the prior year due to the consolidation of GBT’s results, change in product mix and an inventory write-off of $3,249 as a result of the impact of COVID-19 on certain new product launches. The gross margin would have been 40%, an increase of 4%, from 36% after excluding the adjustment of hyperinflation accounting in accordance with IAS 29.

For the year ended December 31 , 2020, the gross margin decreased from 57% to 41% compared to the same period in the prior year due to consolidation of GBT’s results and an inventory write-off of $10,046 as a result of the impact of COVID-19 on certain new product launches. The gross margin would have been 44%, an increase of 3%, from 41% after excluding the adjustment of hyperinflation accounting in accordance with IAS 29.

Selling and marketing: The increase of $4,209 for the quarter and $27,796 for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2020 compared to the same prior year periods is primarily driven by the consolidation of GBT’s results.

General and administrative: For the year ended December 31, 2020, the general and administrative expenses increased by $14,385 or 59% as compared to the same period in prior year driven by the consolidation of GBT’s expenses of $22,052 partially offset by a decrease in one time costs related to the GBT acquisition and the public proxy battle.

Research and development: For the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, research and development expenses increased by $2,279 or 162% and $7,812 or 200% compared to the same prior year periods. The increase is driven by the consolidation of GBT’s financial results and the continued investment in the Canadian product launches.

Amortization of intangible assets: Increase due to the amortization of the definite-life intangible assets acquired in the GBT acquisition.

Interest income: Interest income is the sum of interest income on financial instruments measured at amortized cost and other interest income. For the quarter, interest income was $2,807, a decrease of 48% or $2,627 compared to the same period prior year. For the year, interest income was $14,322 a decrease of 39% or $9,220 compared to the same period in prior year. The decrease in both instances is due to lower interest rates, average cash, marketable securities and strategic loan balances.

Interest expense: The consolidation of GBT’s financial results accounted for $3,131 of incremental interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2020 mainly related to interest on its bank loans.

Net income or loss: For the quarter ended December 31, 2020, net income was $8,233 an increase of $11,386 compared to the same period last year. The variance mainly resulted from the above-mentioned items as well as a net gain on the revaluation of financial assets measured at fair value through profit or loss of $25,418 (Q4-19 gain of $1,065).

For the year net income was $31,760 an increase of $13,727 compared to the same period last year. The variance mainly resulted from the above-mentioned items as well as (i) net gain on the revaluation of financial assets measured at fair value through profit or loss of $48,060 (Q4-19 gain of $20,714), (ii) net gain on mandatory tender offer (“MTO”) liability of $12,072 mainly driven by the public shareholders of GBT tendering their shares using the Alternative Offer Price at BRL 10.40 per share, (iii) loss on hyperinflation of $1,444 due to net monetary positions under hyperinflation accounting.

Adjusted EBITDA : For the three-month period ended December 31, 2020, adjusted EBITDA was $1,771, a decrease of $4,409 or 71% compared to the same period last year. The variance is mainly explained by an inventory write-off of $3,249 in the fourth quarter of 2020. For the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2020, adjusted EBITDA was $16,837, an increase of $14,010 or 496% compared to the same period last year. For the twelve-month period, the variance is mainly due to the consolidation of GBT’s adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted Earnings : For the three-month period ended December 31, 2020, adjusted earnings were $4,174 a decrease of $7,070 or 63% compared to the same period last year. For the twelve months period ended December 31, 2020, adjusted earnings were $28,713 an increase of $2,714 or 10% as compared to the same period last year. The variance is mainly explained by the incremental adjusted earnings of the GBT acquisition offset by a decline in interest income.

Cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and marketable securities : As at December 31, 2020, Knight had $392,225 in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, a decrease of $143,957 or 27% as compared to December 31, 2019. The variance is primarily due to cash outflows related to the acquisition of the outstanding BDRs of GBT, shares repurchased through NCIB and changes in working capital partially offset by Medison settlement.

Financial assets: The increase of $34,804 for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to the prior year is due to the following: (i) increase of $2,537 attributable to loans and receivables as a result of additional loans issued partially offset by loss on foreign exchange revaluations and changes in fair value (ii) decrease in equity investments, warrants and derivatives of $3,408 due to disposal and revaluation, and (iii) increase of $35,675 attributable to fund investments.

Bank Loans: As at December 31, 2020, bank loans were at $51,770, a decrease of $3,809 mainly due to loan repayment of $14,714 and a further decrease of $14,178 due to the foreign exchange revaluation, partially offset by additional loans of $24,581 issued in March and December 2020. Subsequent to the year end, loan balance was reduced by $10,111.

IMPACT OF HYPERINFLATION
[In thousands of Canadian dollars]

The Company applies IAS 29, Financial Reporting in Hyperinflation Economies, as the Company’s Argentine subsidiaries used the Argentine Peso as their functional currency. IAS 29 requires that the financial statements of an entity whose functional currency is the currency of a hyperinflationary economy be adjusted based on an appropriate general price index to express the effects of inflation. If the Company did not apply IAS 29, the effect on the Company’s operating income would be as follows:

RECONCILIATION TO ADJUSTED EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EARNINGS
[In thousands of Canadian dollars]

Non-IFRS measure: EBITDA and Adjusted earnings

The Company discloses non-IFRS measures that do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS. The Company believes that shareholders, investment analysts and other readers find such measures helpful in understanding the Company’s financial performance and in interpreting the effect of the GBT Transaction on the Company. Non-IFRS financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not have been calculated in the same way as similarly named financial measures presented by other companies.

The Company uses the following non-IFRS measures:

EBITDA: Operating (loss) income adjusted to exclude amortization and impairment of intangible assets, depreciation, PPA accounting adjustments, and the impact of IAS 29 (accounting under hyperinflation) but to include costs related to leases. In addition, EBITDA does not reflect the portion of GBT’s adjusted earnings attributable to the non-controlling interests.

Adjusted EBITDA: EBITDA adjusted for acquisition costs and non-recurring expenses

Adjusted earnings: Adjusted EBIDTA adjusted to include interest income earned and interest expenses on bank loans.

Adjustments include the following:

  • With the adoption of IFRS 16, the lease payments of Knight are not reflected in operating expenses. The IFRS 16 adjustment approximates the cash outflow related to leases of Knight.
  • Acquisition costs relate to costs incurred on legal, consulting and advisory fees for the acquisition of GBT.
  • Other non-recurring expenses relate to expenses incurred by Knight that are not due to, and are not expected to occur in, the ordinary course of business. For the quarter and the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2020, Knight recorded one-time costs of $2,603 and $5,383 respectively. The expenses related to restructuring activities including severance to certain employees as part of restructuring and integration of GBT, inventory destruction and bad debt against accounts receivable.
  • Interest income Includes “Interest income on financial instruments measured at amortized cost” and “Other interest income”, primarily from interest earned on loans, cash and cash equivalents, marketable securities and accretion on loans receivable.
  • Interest expense on bank loans includes GBT’s interest expense mainly related to interest on its bank loans

For the three-month and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2020, the Company calculated adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings as follows:

Operating loss (12,353 ) (5,947 ) (30,656 ) (16,883 )
