1 See definition of non-IFRS measure in Mercator Transport’s MD&A.

For the quarter ended January 31, 2014, Mercator Transport’s net revenues totaled $2.9 million, a decrease of $ 3.9 million or 57% compared to the same period last year due to reduced sales in France and Canada, factor partially offset by increased revenues in Argentina. The decrease in revenue is the result of funding constraints of the Company.

The Company generated an EBITDA(1) loss of $(594,000) for the quarter ended January 31, 2014, compared to an EBITDA(1) loss of $(672,000) for the corresponding period of the previous year. The improvement is attributable to reduced selling and administrative expenses.

A net loss from continuing operations of $1,346,000, or $(0.036) per share, was recorded in the third quarter of 2013-2014, compared to a net loss of $1,024,000, or $(0.028) per share, for the corresponding quarter of the previous year due to increased financing costs partially offset by the improved EBITDA(1) loss.
