SENIOR MANAGEMENT CHANGES
The current Executive Chairman and Director, Mark Silver, will be taking on the role of Chief Executive Officer, as a result of the resignation by Travis Allan as both CEO and Director. Mark Silver has over 36 years of experience in business, real estate and building services. As a focused and successful entrepreneur, he previously co-founded Direct Energy and grew revenues to more than $1.3 billion before selling in 2000. He subsequently launched Universal Energy (purchased by Just Energy for $425 million) and National Home Services (purchased by Reliance Comfort for $505 million). Mr. Silver launched Eddy in 2014 with a goal to extend smart home service offerings to water protection and expand into other markets – such as building and commercial verticals. The board of directors wishes to thank Travis for all of his services.

Sajid Khan has been appointed as President & Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Khan has served in the role of Chief Operating Officer of Eddy since inception. His experience includes more than 20 years of leadership and operational experience in the home services sector. Mr. Khan has held various roles including Chief Operating Officer of Eco Energy Service, Vice President of Operations at both National Home Services and Universal Energy, as well as management positions in Direct Energy. He has extensive experience building and leading installation networks and teams and other operational departments such as call centres, billing, processing, and change management.

The change in roles strengthens the overall senior management team and will position the Company for continued growth and maximize value creation from its rapidly expanding backlog of contracted revenue.

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2022, increased to $507,185 as compared with $328,908 reported for the comparable period in 2021. Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2022, increased to $888,851 as compared with to $688,330 reported for the comparable six-month period in 2021.

GROWTH IN CONTRACTED REVENUE  
Contracted revenue is the primary measure of traction we are gaining in the market for our leak protection services. As a result of the building development cycle, in most cases, business garnered during the quarter will not translate into revenue generation until the building is constructed in the future (ranging from a few quarters to approximately two years). As a result, a key operating metric of our success and the value of the business can be measured by both the existing contracted revenue and the growth of this figure. With a mission to protect property and empower people with data and control, the Company’s contracted sales backlog continues to grow, and during the first half of 2022, increased by over $16.1 million and stands at over $32.6 million, which represents the future contracted revenue. The Company earns revenue over the term of its contracts on a straight-line basis which commences upon installation. The term of the contracts are typically 84 months. 

The Company’s future contracted water monitoring revenue as at June 30, 2022 was $32.6 million (December 31, 2021$16.5 million), which is an increase of 97% and demonstrates significant sales momentum.

STRATEGIC ACQUISITION  
On May 4, 2022, the Company acquired a 100% ownership interest in Reed Controls Inc. (“Reed”). Reed develops a robust water management technology platform of hardware and cloud software to manage water related risk, converge water and accelerate Internet of Things (“IoT”) adoption among global plumbing manufacturers. The primary reason of the acquisition is to allow the Company to expand the product offering with a greater focus on commercial solutions for smart water metering products and monitoring services. The total purchase price for the transaction was $4,538,420 which was paid through the issuance of 12,266,000 common shares (“Share Consideration”).

The Share Consideration is subject to a twenty-four (24) month lock-up period, provided that the Share Consideration will be released from the lock-up requirements on the first business day following each of the four, six, nine, twelve, fifteen, eighteen and twenty-one month anniversaries of the closing date. Upon the closing of the transaction, Reed’s founders joined the Company’s leadership team. Reed has also been granted a right to nominate a director to serve on the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”), and a Board observer.

UPDATE ON THE RESTATEMENT OF THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
On August 19, 2022, the Company announced the intentions to restate its financial statements and MD&A, related to the interpretation and application of certain technical accounting standards related to non-cash consideration provided to a developer and customer (the “Developer”) through an amended exclusive supplier agreement dated December 15, 2021 (the “Addendum”), which upon further analysis the estimate amount has been revised.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, the impact is expected to be isolated to the consolidated statement of financial position, increasing prepaid expenses and contributed surplus by approximately $944K (initially estimated at $1.6 million). For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the impact to prepaid expenses is expected to slightly less than the December 31, 2021 impact, with a further impact of an expected reduction to general and administrative expenses and deficit of approximately $1.55 million, along with immaterial adjustments to contributed surplus and revenue.

This restatement has no impact on cash flows and business operations.

The Company intends to file its restated financial statements and the corresponding management discussion and analysis on or about September 30, 2022.
