"Our sales performance in the quarter was very solid as our products continue to gain traction in property insurance claims markets globally," commented James Swayze, Chief Executive Officer, Symbility Solutions Inc. "With much of last year focused on building the team and pipeline, it is nice to see the payoff in the form of adoption and growing momentum by new customers, especially internationally where our revenue doubled year-over-year compared to Q1 2013."

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest income, taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment losses, stock-based compensation, and other non-recurring gains or losses including transaction costs related to acquisition. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure that facilitates period-to-period operating comparisons. Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB.

(2) The ACV is an estimated variable amount impacted by: (1) the actual number of claims processed; (2) the impact of severe weather on insurance property claims; (3) the number of claims assigned by an insurance carrier to an independent adjuster or contractor; (4) the time required to integrate the Company's system with Symbility Solutions platform, any of which may result of a time delay between the signed agreement and revenue recognition.

(3) The TCV is the total of the estimated ACV over the term of each the contracts. TCV also includes expected changes from the use of Symbility's products and/or price increases.

(4) In Canadian dollars, rounded to the nearest cent.
