Olympia Financial Group Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2020 Results

·3 min read

Olympia Financial Group Inc. ("Olympia") (TSX:OLY) today announces its operating and financial results for the period ended September 30, 2020.

The unaudited condensed interim financial statements and notes, as well as management’s discussion and analysis, are now available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).

Results from continuing operations for the period ended September 30, 2020 include the following (compared to continuing operations for the period ended September 30, 2019):

  • Earnings before income tax decreased 24% to $2.50 million from $3.27 million.

  • Total revenue decreased 6% to $11.33 million from $12.09 million, mainly as a result of a decreases in both service revenue and interest revenue. Service revenue decreased in the Private Health Services division, Registered Plans division and Currency and Global Payments division.

  • Service revenue decreased 3% to $8.43 million from $8.67 million, mainly due to a decrease in operating activities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 had the largest impact on the Private Health Services division, with revenue deceasing 9% compared to the previous year.

  • Olympia’s interest revenue and trust income are subject to fluctuations depending on account balances and changes in the Canadian prime rate. Interest revenue and trust income decreased 15% to $2.90 million from $3.42 million, mainly due to changes in the Canadian prime rate. The Canadian prime rate was 2.45% as at September 30, 2020, compared to 3.95% on September 30, 2019. With interest rates at historic lows, Olympia interest revenue is likely to continue to decrease as term deposits mature and are renewed at lower rates.

  • Direct and administrative expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization) decreased 3% to $8.62 million from $8.90 million, mainly due to decreases in commission expense, salaries, bonuses and wages.

The severity, duration and outcome of the COVID-19 pandemic and its long-term impact on Olympia remain uncertain. Management continues to focus on the safety of our people, connectivity of our customer base, compliance with guidelines and requirements issued by various governmental authorities, and continuity of other critical business operation.
