Symbility Solutions Reports Record Revenue of $4.9 Million in Q3 2012

Year Over Year Quarterly Revenue Doubles, Adjusted EBITDA Triples

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/16/12 -- Symbility Solutions Inc.® (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:SY), a leading provider of cloud-based claims technology for the insurance industry, today reported that revenue increased to approximately $4.9 million for the three months ending September 30, 2012, up 144% from $2.0 million in the comparable period in 2011.

Net loss for the three months ending September 30, 2012 was $159,000 or ($0.00) per share on a basic and fully diluted basis. This compares to a net income of approximately $88,000 in the same period last year or earnings per share of $0.00 on a basic and fully diluted basis.

At September 30, 2012, the Corporation held $2.7 million in cash and cash equivalents (net of debt of $112,000 owed on a capital lease).

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ending September 30, 2012 was $469,000 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $146,000 in the same period last year. The Corporation believes Adjusted EBITDA(1) is also a useful measure as a proxy for operating cash flow and facilitates period-to-period operating comparisons. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because it helps investors more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period, by removing the impact of our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization), transaction related expenses and actions that do not affect liquidity (stock-based compensation expense and non-cash impairments) from our operating results.

"This quarter was primarily focused on the MSB integration and resource strengthening to build scale into our operations. While the effort is ongoing, we have effectively absorbed the staff, systems, contracts and offices of the MSB claims division and are operating as one fluid entity already," states James Swayze, Chief Executive Officer, Symbility Solutions Inc. "We are very proud of the fact that we have added two additional offices and more than doubled our staff over the last two quarters, and still managed to post an EBITDA three times higher than the same period last year. We now have a solid foundation in our infrastructure from which to rapidly grow our top and bottom line into next year and beyond."
