MONTREAL, Nov. 25, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - IOU FINANCIAL INC. ("IOU Financial" or "the Corporation") (CNSX: IOU) announces its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.
IOU Financial's net loss attributable to the common shareholders for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 was $169,997 versus $288,170 for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. Net loss per share attributable to the common shareholders was $0.01 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 versus $0.04 attributable to the common shareholders for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. The decrease in net loss for the quarter was primarily due to a decrease in accounting fees incurred and relating to financial compliance and assistance with the company's conversion to IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) back in the third quarter of 2010.
IOU Financial's net loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011 is $3,647,853 versus $1,020,939 for the equivalent period ended September 30, 2010. IOU Financial's net loss attributable to the common shareholders for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011 was $3,635,238 versus $902,430 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2010. Net loss per share attributable to the common shareholders is $0.19 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011 versus $0.12 attributable to the common shareholders for the nine month period ended September 30, 2010. The increase in net loss for the period was primarily due to the difference in accounting treatment between IFRS and Canadian GAAP relating to the reverse takeover of IOU Central and its US subsidiary. The difference between the fair value of IOU Central and the net book value of IOU Financial (plus transaction costs) has been expensed under IFRS.
IOU Financial's financial statements and Management Discussion & Analysis for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 have been filed on SEDAR and are available at www.sedar.com.
