Q1 2016 Restatement
On April 2, 2017, the Company reported on Form 8-K that its financial statements for 2015 and for the three quarters of 2016 would be restated due to two issues. These issues were further detailed in the Company’s 2016 annual report filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 10-K. The effects of the restatement on the income statement are as follows:
“Our top line continues to show solid growth from the recent investments we have made in our business,” stated Galaxy’s CEO Robert B. Saucier. "In the first half of 2017, we are continuing to make those investments and at an accelerated rate. In the short term, those investments will negatively affect our profits. However, we have never been interested in short term results and instead we believe these investments are necessary to sustain our longer term growth objectives.”
“Q1 2017 demonstrated the strength of Galaxy’s business model,” said Harry C. Hagerty, the Company’s newly-appointed Chief Financial Officer. “Adjusted EBITDA was almost equal to last year’s in spite of significant increases in personnel-related costs. Pretax and net income numbers are down more significantly due to increased expenses related to the new financing put in place in August of 2016. In spite of this reduced profitability, the Company generated a meaningful increase in cash in the quarter. Finally, the Company’s balance sheet is in good shape as evidenced by the ratio of Total Debt to annualized Adjusted EBITDA at 2.2x.”
