GREENPOWER MOTOR COMPANY INC. SHAREHOLDER’S CALL ON Q4 2018 RESULTS
*Due to a problem with the recording, the file is missing the moderator’s preamble. It begins with President Brendan Riley’s comments. Below is a copy of the preamble read by Colby Richardson, Business Development Manager.
Good afternoon. My name is Colby Richardson, Business Development Manager for GreenPower, and I’ll be your conference moderator.
At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the GreenPower Motor Company Inc. Q4 2018 Shareholder’s Call, where we will be discussing our most recent President’s Letter, our Fourth Quarter results and the year-end MD&A (management discussion and analysis).
After the speakers have concluded, we will hold a question-and-answer period. To those interested in asking a question of our management team, please pay attention to these important instructions.
In order to best facilitate the Q&A, I would request that any caller wishing to ask a question to please email me at [email protected] (which can also be found on our website) with an appropriate subject line, such as ‘Question’ or ‘Shareholder Call’. In the body of the email, you need only have your name and your company, or an indication that you are a private investor if you prefer. Questions will be answered in the order that they are received. If a caller wishes to ask another question after we have already moved to another caller’s question, I would request that they send a second email, so that callers are not competing over the line. At this time, all lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. Thank you.
Forward Looking Statements
I would like to note that this conference call will include forward-looking statements relating to, among other things, GreenPower’s business and operations and the environment in which it operates, which are based on GreenPower’s operations, estimates, forecasts and projections.
Forward-looking statements are not based on historical facts, but rather on current expectations and projections about future events and are therefore subject to risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from the future results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.
These statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as “may”, “should”, “will”, “could”, “intend”, “estimate”, “plan”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “believe” or “continue”, or the negative thereof or similar variations. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict or are beyond GreenPower’s control, such as the regulations and requirements in different jurisdictions.
A number of important factors including those set forth in other public filings (filed under the Company’s profile on www.sedar.com) could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements.
Consequently, listeners should not place any undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. In addition, these forward-looking statements relate to the date on which they are made. GreenPower disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
On this call, we may refer to Non IFRS Financial Measures such as “Adjusted EBITDA” which reflects net income or loss before interest, taxes, share-based payments, depreciation and amortization. For a full description you can refer to our MD&A filed on SEDAR.
With that, I will now turn it over to Brendan Riley, GreenPower’s President, and Fraser Atkinson, Chairman of the Board, who are located at our Sales Office in California, to begin the conference call.
