Vancouver, British Columbia- November 28, 2019 – Good Life Networks Inc. (TSXV: GOOD) (FSE: 4G5) (“GLN“, or the “Company“), a programmatic advertising technology company, today announced that it has filed its Q3 2019 financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis for the period ending September 30, 2019, available for viewing on www.sedar.com. All figures are expressed in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.
The sector that GLN operates in experienced a significant shift in its operational and competitive landscape (as expressed in the Company’s September 26, 2019 news release) and this shift had a material negative impact on the Company’s operations, customers and business partners. As a result, the Company generated $751,971 in revenue and incurred a net loss of $3,333,065 in Q3.
Chris Bradley, CEO of GLN, commented, “Following significant changes in the advertising technology landscape, as discussed in GLN’s September 26th, 2019 news release, we continue to reposition the Company and leverage our technology into the customer acquisition space. We have initiated the execution of this strategy with a cannabidiol (“CBD”) online retailer (as announced in GLN’s November 19, 2019 news release). The GLN team and I look forward to sharing the progress on our repositioning efforts with the ultimate goal of increasing shareholder value in the very near future.”
Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as income (loss) before income taxes, while including additional operating costs, such as general and administration expenses and marketing expenses and excluding: (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) stock-based compensation expense, (iii) interest expense, (iv) gain or loss on financial instruments and foreign exchange, and (v) funding interest costs. Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning under the Company’s IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.
Adjusted EBITDA is a measure used by management and the board of directors of GLN to understand and evaluate its core operating performance and trends.

The GLN Story
GLN’s patent pending technology was previously the engine that sat between advertisers and publishers. One of the advantages of this technology is that it does not collect PII (Personal Identifiable Information). Following a significant change within GLN’s core market, this technology is currently being repositioned into the customer acquisition space to help online retailers find customers on a commission basis. The Company initially intends to target the CBD and gaming space.
