Just Energy Reports Fiscal Second Quarter 2022 Results

TORONTO, Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Just Energy Group Inc. (“Just Energy” or the “Company”) (TSXV:JE; OTC:JENGQ), a retail energy provider specializing in electricity and natural gas commodities and bringing energy efficient solutions, carbon offsets and renewable energy options to customers announced its second quarter results for fiscal year 2022.

“Although our second quarter financial results continue to be impacted by the loss of customers in the prior year, the Company delivered net positive mass markets RCE additions for the first time since the first quarter of fiscal 2019, further validating our strategic investment in digital marketing and rebound of face-to-face retail channels following the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. We remain focused on our strategy as we navigate a challenging margin environment brought on by rising commodity prices across North America while we also work with the regulator and market participants on potential changes in the ERCOT market in response to the extreme weather event in Texas in February 2021,” said Scott Gahn, Just Energy’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

“Our operational performance during the second quarter demonstrates our continued commitment to our customers, employees, partners, and our pursuit of growth in key markets,” added Mr. Gahn, continuing, “we are also continuing to work closely with our valued stakeholders towards a successful restructuring plan.”

The financial measures such as “EBITDA”, “Base EBITDA”, “Base Gross Margin”, “Free Cash Flow”, “Unlevered Free Cash Flow” and “Embedded Gross Margin” do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. This financial measure should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss), cash flow from operating activities and other measures of financial performance as determined in accordance with IFRS, but the Company believes that these measures are useful in providing relative operational profitability of the Company’s business. Please refer to “Key Terms” in the Just Energy Q1 Fiscal 2022’s Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the Company’s definition of “EBITDA” and other non-IFRS measures.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
