Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ:TCX) (TSX:TC) Q1 2017 financial results via news release on Tuesday, May 9, 2017 at approximately 4:05 p.m. EDT. Tucows management will host a conference call on the same day at 5:00 p.m. EDT to discuss the results and the outlook for the company.
Net income for the first quarter of 2017 decreased to $2.4 million, or $0.23 per share, from $4.4 million, or $0.42 per share, for the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2017 decreased to $6.2 million from $7.3 million for the first quarter of 2016. The first quarter of 2017 was impacted by the effect of the purchase price accounting adjustment related to the fair value write down of deferred revenue from the Enom acquisition which lowered adjusted EBITDA by $1.4 million and is a portion of the $4.8 million net deferred revenue change noted above. The first quarter of 2016 benefited from $0.4 million reversal of an overachievement bonus accrual for 2015 that was no longer required and a foreign exchange gain of $0.4 million that was not repeated. Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the first quarter of 2017 decreased slightly to $15.0 million compared with $15.1 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2016 and $10.0 million at the end of the first quarter of 2016.--Tucows Q1 2017 release
