The Corporation’s deli Chinese food products are sold nationally across Canada. Gross revenue in 2017 was $5,919,004, 8.9% higher than in 2016. The increased revenue was primarily due to increase in quantities sold from economic recovery.
The Corporation’s other source of revenue, royalties and franchisee fees had experienced some good results. Net royalties and franchise fees in 2017 were $ 230,739, 15.4% less than in 2016. The increase was primarily due to more royalties collected as a result of more sales generated by franchisees as consequences of economic recovery.

The Corporation’s EBITDA in 2017 was $ 544,904 compared to $ 466,931 in 2016. Increased EBITDA were primarily resulting from higher revenue and lower G&A costs.

Cash generated from the Corporation’s operating activities in 2017 was $ 222,136, compared to cash generated from operating activities of $ 460,516 from 2016.

Cash used in financing activities in 2017 was 167,502, compared to a net reduction of $ 98,335 in 2016. The increase was primarily resulted from share redemption made in 2017. Expenditures on property, plant and equipment totaled $ 312,243 in 2017, compared to $ 80,386 in 2016. Increased investments in equipment were due to worn-out of aged old equipment.
