The Company has chosen to compare year over year Comprehensive Income before taxes, however, certain figures in 2020 are not comparable to previous years due to the adoption in this fiscal year of IFRS 16. As the bulk of the Company’s sales are in US dollars, fluctuations in the exchange rate between Canadian and US dollars impact reported income. Revenues are converted to Canadian dollars when sales are completed and booked. Foreign exchange adjustments are then required when payments are actually received.

K. Barry Sparks, the Chief Executive of the Company stated: “The Annual Meeting of Shareholders was held virtually on April 29, 2020. Following the formal part of the Annual Meeting, our President, Jason Siemens presented NamSys’ vision for the future, including a conference call for investors.
Mr. Siemens noted that the “Smart Safe” solution is only one of many initiatives that NamSys is taking to streamline the processing of currency. The present “Cirreon” initiatives include:
- Web and mobile applications for commercial/online banking
- Logistics management for cash-in-transit providers
- Exploring industries with similar high-security logistics challenges
As you can appreciate, these changes to traditional practices take time for the parties to understand and internalize. While we are spending considerable time to move the above initiatives forward, the operating results are now starting to reflect the fruits of our labour. This includes the recent execution of a new distribution agreements with several North American Cash in Transit companies.
The presentation and follow-up discussions with shareholders at the April 29th, 2020 Annual Meeting conference call is recorded on the Company’s website at www.namsys.com (Investor Relations Section). Interested parties are welcome to learn more about the Company from this presentation.
