Comments from Management

Roy Sebag, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Goldmoney Inc.:

Fiscal 2018 was an excellent year for Goldmoney. I have prepared an extensive letter to investors which I hope our shareholders will take the time to read for a deeper dive into our results and future outlook.

James Turk, Lead Director of Goldmoney Inc.:

I congratulate the entire Goldmoney team for these exceptional results. While there are many aspects of the report worth noting, it is particularly gratifying to see the annual increase in Tangible Capital and the 68% per share yearly ROMW. These two metrics show that Goldmoney is accumulating real wealth for its shareholders.

Josh Crumb, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Goldmoney Inc.:

“Goldmoney continues to take a long-term approach to maximizing shareholder value, recognizing that an annual group profit is the only sustainable way to realize our growth mission while still providing clients with the assurance of a sound and conservative balance sheet. As Roy further details in his annual letter, we are pleased with the Year over Year financial results and other qualitative and quantitative assessments of the group’s growing businesses. While the North American and European retail precious metals industry continues to face the dual challenge of decade-low consumer engagement in many products and extremely low realized volatility in dealing, Goldmoney is thriving. In what appears to be a challenging market for others, we continue to grow top line revenue and market share by focusing on delivering our clients increased platform services, the industry’s most trusted thought leadership, and continuous improvements in technology-driven engagement. We continue to invest in the Goldmoney group brands and position Goldmoney shareholders for increased demand across our products as the business cycle turns, where we believe clients will increasingly seek the safety of precious metals and alternative money outside of the core banking system during the ongoing unwind of the extraordinary monetary policy experiments and central bank interest rate-price fixing that has dominated capital markets for nearly a decade now. Looking ahead to Fiscal 2019, we hope to deliver another year of strong per-share ROMW gains as we deliver on our group’s investments in Menē and its spinout on the TSX Venture and BlockVault and our first corporate clients in institutional crypto-custody launching this summer.”
