CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 7, 2017) -


Alaris Royalty Corp. ("Alaris" or the "Corporation") (TSX:AD) is pleased to announce its results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016. The results are prepared under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB").

2016 Highlights:

  • Total capital deployment of over CAD$108 million funded primarily through internally generated cash flow ($86 million sourced from cash flow from operations and proceeds from redemptions) into three new Partners and two follow on transactions with current Partners:
    • USD$22 million into Sandbox Acquisitions, LLC and Sandbox Advertising, LP (collectively "Sandbox")
    • USD$30 million into M-Rhino Holdings, LLC, operating as Providence Industries ("Providence")
    • USD$18 million into Matisia, LLC ("Matisia")
    • USD$4.3 million into an affiliate of LMS Limited Partnership ("LMS")
    • USD$6.5 million into a subsidiary of Federal Resources Supply Company ("Federal Resources")
  • Exited three partnerships recognizing significant gains and strong IRRs
    • Exited the LifeMark Health Limited Partnership ("LifeMark") investment after over eleven successful years as a Partner. On gross capital contributions of CAD$67.5 million, the Corporation received CAD$77.2 million in regular monthly distributions and in March 2016 the Corporation received the last CAD$38.4 million of CAD$123.4 million in total exit proceeds resulting in a net gain in 2016 of CAD$18.6 million, total proceeds from LifeMark of $200.6 million, and an IRR over the life of the investment of 27%.
    • Exited the Solowave Designs, LP ("Solowave") investment after six successful years as a Partner. On gross capital contributions of CAD$42.5 million, the Corporation received CAD$31.4 million in regular monthly distributions and sold its units in October 2016 for exit proceeds of CAD$44.6 million for total gross proceeds of CAD$76.0 million, a net gain in 2016 of CAD$1.6 million, and an IRR over the life of the investment of 17%.
    • Exited the Mid-Atlantic Holdings, LLC ("MAHC") investment after one year which resulted in USD$3.9 million of additional distributions paid to Alaris (Alaris' agreement with MAHC included a minimum payment of three years of distributions) as well as a USD$14.4 million payment for the repurchase of the MAHC units. As a result, Alaris had a total return of 53% on its USD$13.28 investment in the one year the MAHC units were held by Alaris.
  • Increased net cash from operating activities by 23.2% compared to the prior year, a total of $73.3 million for the year.

  • Increased gross revenue by +12.7%, on a per share basis.

Presidents Message

Alaris had another record year of financial results in 2016 with revenue, EBITDA and net cash from operations per share increasing to all-time highs. Our diversified revenue stream and unique offering to private companies continues to deliver the benefits to both our shareholders and our private company partners envisioned when the company was founded 13 years ago. During the year, we had our sixth, seventh and eighth exit events. Not only did those events crystalize outstanding returns for Alaris, they also serve as valuable case studies for entrepreneurs that are deciding between Alaris and other financing alternatives in an increasingly competitive industry.

Financially, our company is in a strong position. Coming off of a year in which revenue and EBITDA per share went up by 12.7% and 14.3% respectively, Alaris has ample room on our balance sheet to deploy capital without coming to the equity markets for some time. Our dividend remains secure and our expectation is that our payout ratio will continue to drop throughout the year with expected resolutions on KMH and Group SM, as well as the continuing improvements to SCR's and Kimco's business. Further capital deployment will also contribute to the point where we hope to continue our track record of dividend increases.

2016 and the early stages of 2017 have seen a noticeable increase in the competitiveness within the private company financing industry. As investors look for higher returns than what have been found in conventional areas, hundreds of billions of dollars have moved into the private equity and mezzanine debt markets. It's now an environment for prudent investors to stay disciplined and pick the right spots for capital deployment. Alaris has several innovative features that help us stand out in a crowded marketplace, which will continue to allow us to grow without changing our risk or return expectations. Based on our pipeline of transactions that are signed to exclusive, but not binding letters of intent, we expect active deployment over the coming months.

As we say goodbye to 2016 and tremendous partners in LifeMark, Solowave and Mid-Atlantic, we look forward to another very successful year in 2017. Adding Sandbox, Providence, Matisia and ccComm in the last twelve months has allowed us to keep growing and we expect another fruitful year of capital deployment both with adding new partners, as well as continuing to fund the growth of our current partners.

The Corporation recorded earnings of $66.5 million, EBITDA of $92.3 million and Normalized EBITDA of $87.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 compared to earnings of $57.9 million, EBITDA of $75.6 million and Normalized EBITDA of $71.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. The 22.1% increase in Normalized EBITDA is a result of the addition of three new Partners in the past twelve months: Sandbox (March 2016), Providence (April 2016), and Matisia (October 2016) and follow on investments to Federal Resources and LMS, offset by the redemptions for LifeMark (March 2016), Solowave (September 2016) and Mid-Atlantic (December 2016). Net Cash from operating activities per share increased by 23.2%. Net Cash from operating activities was $73.3 million compared to $58.8 million in dividends paid during the year ending December 31, 2016, an actual payout ratio of 80.3%. This represents the actual cash flow of the business and excludes accrued distributions from Partners that were not received in the current year but that are expected to be paid in the next twelve months of $11.2 million (SM, Labstat, SCR and Agility).

Revenues from Partners for the year ended December 31, 2016 totaled $100.0 million (including $11.2 million in revenue accrued for SM, SCR, Agility and the Labstat sweep - $1 million of the $2.1 million sweep has already been collected with the remaining due in April 2017) compared to $82.8 million in the prior year period. The increase of 20.8% is a result of the addition of new Partners and follow on contributions, year over year performance metric adjustments from each of the Partners as described below, partially offset for redemptions by Partners in 2015 and 2016 as well as lower accrued revenue for Kimco and SCR in the period.

Subsequent to December 31, 2016, the Corporation, through its subsidiary Salaris USA Royalty Inc. ("Salaris"), contributed USD$4 million to C&C Communications LLC ("ccComm") for an annualized distribution of USD$0.6 million. ccComm is a Sprint retailer with over 50 locations throughout the Northwest and Central U.S. ccComm is expected to use the partnership to pursue a roll-up strategy in which Salaris expects to contribute additional capital to support ccComm's growth program.

As an update on corporate developments, progress continues to be made on all previously disclosed matters and the Corporation has not revised its expectations relating to such matters. Of note, SM has recently received a commitment letter from a lender to replace the majority of SM's current senior debt. The replacement of SM's senior debt provider will result in substantially decreased monthly fees paid by SM which should improve SM's cash flows and result in some level of distributions being paid to Alaris in the coming months. As part of the Corporation's agreement to extend the repurchase timeline for Agility to April 30, 2017, Agility will continue to make regular monthly distributions but will also start making monthly payments against the unpaid distribution balance of USD$1.7 million starting in March 2017. The KMH strategic process continues with the second of a number of transactions to close imminently resulting in another $0.5 million of cash coming to Alaris. For more details on the performance of Alaris' Private Company Partner's please refer to the "Private Company Partner Update" section of the Management Discussion and Analysis for the period ended December 31, 2016 filed on SEDAR at or on our website under the "Investor" section at


Based on Alaris' current agreements with its partners, it expects revenues of approximately $83.4 million for 2017 (no revenue to be accrued for Kimco or SCR, only amounts received will be recorded). For the first quarter of 2017, those same agreements provide for revenues of approximately $20.9 million for the Corporation. Annual general and administrative expenses are currently estimated at $8.3 million annually and include all public company costs.

The Corporation's Annualized Payout Ratio is just over 100% with no distributions from SM, Kimco, SCR and KMH. The table below sets out our estimated current run rate of net cash from operating activities alongside the after-tax impact of the various resolutions management is working toward:

Annualized Cash Flow (in 000's) Comments Amount ($) $ / Share
Revenue $1.32 USD/CAD exchange rate $ 83,400 $ 2.30
General & Admins. (8,300) (0.23)
Interest & Taxes (16,500) (0.45)
Net cash flow $ 58,600 1.61
Annual Dividend 59,000 1.62
Surplus / (Shortfall) (400) (0.01)
Other Considerations:
KMH Receive $26.9 million for units reduces interest expense +1,250 +0.03
SM Restart distributions & receive $28 million of proceeds +5,900 +0.16
SCR & Kimco Every $2 million in distributions received is $0.05/share +1,600 +0.05
New Investments Every $20 million deployed @ 15% +1,515 +0.04
Sequel Roll Partial Redemption (1) -5,000 -0.14
(1) Sequel to pay a cash distribution of US$30 million while retaining US$62 million invested in return for annual distributions of US$6.2 million

The senior debt facility was drawn to $99.4 million at December 31, 2016, with the capacity to draw up to another $80 million based on current covenants. The annual interest rate on that debt was approximately 4.95% at December 31, 2016 and remains at that level today.

About the Corporation:

Alaris provides alternative financing to private companies ("Partners") in exchange for royalties or distributions with the principal objective of generating stable and predictable cash flows for dividend payments to its shareholders. Distributions from the Partners are adjusted annually based on the percentage change of a "top-line" financial performance measure such as gross margin or same store sales and rank in priority to the owner's common equity position.

Non-IFRS Measures

The terms EBITDA, Normalized EBITDA and Annualized Payout Ratio are financial measures used in this news release that are not standard measures under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). The Corporation's method of calculating EBITDA, Normalized EBITDA and Annualized Payout ratio may differ from the methods used by other issuers. Therefore, the Corporation's EBITDA, Normalized EBITDA and Annualized Payout Ratio may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

Annualized Payout Ratio: Annualized payout ratio refers to Alaris' total annualized dividend per share expected to be paid over the next twelve months divided by the estimated net cash from operating activities per share Alaris expects to generate over the same twelve-month year (after giving effect to the impact of all information disclosed as of the date of this report).

EBITDA refers to net earnings (loss) determined in accordance with IFRS, before depreciation and amortization, net of gain or loss on disposal of capital assets, interest expense and income tax expense. EBITDA is used by management and many investors to determine the ability of an issuer to generate cash from operations. Management believes EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure from which to determine the Corporation's ability to generate cash available for debt service, working capital, capital expenditures, income taxes and dividends. The Corporation has provided a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA in this news release.

Normalized EBITDA refers to EBITDA excluding items that are non-recurring in nature and is calculated by adjusting for non-recurring expenses and gains to EBITDA. Management deems non-recurring items to be unusual and/or infrequent items that the Corporation incurs outside of its common day-to-day operations. For the year ended December 31, 2016, the gain on the redemption of the LifeMark, Solowave and Killick units (in 2015), the impairment of the KMH units, the write off of the interest on the KMH promissory note, one-time penalties and fees related to the CRA GST audit and the unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses are considered by management to be non-recurring charges. Adjusting for these non-recurring items allows management to assess EBITDA from ongoing operations.

The terms EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA should only be used in conjunction with the Corporation's annual audited and quarterly reviewed financial statements, excerpts of which are available below, while complete versions are available on SEDAR at
