For full details of the Company's operations and financial results, please refer to the Securities and Exchange Commission website at www.sec.gov or the Kidoz Inc. corporate website at https://investor.kidoz.net or the www.sedar.com website.
"Kidoz is the market leader in safe mobile media and our investments into our technology and sales teams continue to deliver results," stated Jason Williams, Kidoz CEO. "2022 was executed as we planned, building a business and technology platform that will complement and compete with the global leaders in advertising technology. We outperformed the Ad Tech market in 2022 by securing strong growth in a weak market and maintaining positive free cash flow. Management has identified continued weakness in the global advertising market and has begun 2023 prudently as we expect lower revenues in the first half of the year when compared to 2022. However, Kidoz's reputation with leading advertisers is strong and we are building channels to larger deals than we have ever received in the past. We expect the full year 2023 to continue our rate of growth."
"In addition to Kidoz, we have launched Prado to complete our media offering. Prado is a fully owned division of Kidoz that is targeting the family segment of advertisers who are trying to reach markets over the age of 13 including teens and parents. The Kidoz team has high expectations for Prado as the advertising market in this segment is over 100 times larger than the market for advertising to children. However, with a larger market comes increased competition and the Prado commercial team needs time to position itself in the market and build trust and relationships. We have the knowledge that our technology for delivering high performance in-app media is strong and believe that it is only a matter of time before Prado's market position is secure and our revenue growth is enhanced."
"The Kidoz and Prado businesses are built upon an increasingly powerful technology base that is sold in over 60 countries by an experienced and engaged network of experienced agencies. Our management's expectations are high despite weakness in the overall market, and we believe we will continue to deliver exceptional financial results."
CAUTION REGARDING NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This press release refers to "Adjusted EBITDA" which is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not presented in accordance with, or as an alternative to, GAAP financial measures and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"). We encourage investors to review the GAAP financial measures included in the last Quarterly Form 10-Q, including our unaudited consolidated financial statements, to aid in their analysis and understanding of our performance and in making comparisons.
We use Adjusted EBITDA internally to evaluate our performance and make financial and operational decisions that are presented in a manner that adjusts from their equivalent GAAP measures or that supplement the information provided by our GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA is defined by us as EBITDA (net income (loss) plus depreciation expense, amortization expense, interest, stock-based compensation and impairment of goodwill), further adjusted to exclude certain non-cash expenses and other adjustments. We use Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it more clearly highlights business trends that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures, since Adjusted EBITDA eliminates from our results specific financial items that have less bearing on our core operating performance.
Our Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled as follows:
(Loss) Income for the year
Depreciation and amortization
Stock awareness program
Gain on derivative liability - warrants
Interest and other income
Income tax (recovery) expense
