Mogo reports in Canadian dollars and in accordance with IFRS

Vancouver, British Columbia, May 9, 2024 – Mogo Inc. (NASDAQ:MOGO) (TSX:MOGO) (“Mogo” or the “Company”), a digital wealth and payments business, today announced its financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

“As we focused on increasing the profitability and efficiency of the business last year, we were also hard at work driving improvements to our digital wealth platform which resulted in the relaunch of the Moka and Mogo apps during the first quarter,” said David Feller, Mogo’s Founder and CEO. “The vast majority of Canadians are nowhere close to being on a path to retirement, and a lot of this is due to investing products that are designed primarily to drive revenue for the companies and not to optimize returns for investors. Our products are designed to help the next generation of investors dramatically improve their performance through discipline, patience and smart investing, rather than trade excessively or speculate on high-risk stocks. We have started to ramp up our marketing and are seeing good early results which is contributing to our accelerated revenue growth in the quarter.”

Financial Outlook

The outlook that follows supersedes all prior financial outlook statements made by Mogo, constitutes forward-looking information within the meaning of applicable securities laws, and is based on a number of assumptions and subject to a number of risks. Actual results could vary materially as a result of numerous factors, including certain risk factors, many of which are beyond Mogo’s control. Please see "Forward-looking Statements" below for more information.

Coming out of a period where the Company successfully accelerated its path to profitability, in fiscal 2024 Mogo is shifting the balance toward accelerating revenue growth while at the same time continuing to generate positive Adjusted EBITDA3. The Company will increase growth investments to drive acceleration in Subscription & Services revenue growth from its Wealth and Payments businesses where it sees significant opportunity for expansion.
Specifically, for 2024 Mogo expects accelerating Subscription & Services revenue growth with an overall Subscription & Services revenue growth rate in the mid-teens for the full year.

1 Non-IFRS measure. For more information regarding our use of these non-IFRS measures and, where applicable, a reconciliation to the most comparable IFRS measure, see “Non-IFRS Financial Measures” in the Company’s MD&A for the period ended March 31, 2024.
2 Includes combined cash and restricted cash of $13.8 million, marketable securities of $28.0 million, and investment portfolio of $11.6 million.
3 Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure. Management has not reconciled this forward-looking non-IFRS measure to its most directly comparable IFRS measure, net loss before tax. This is because the Company cannot predict with reasonable certainty and without unreasonable efforts the ultimate outcome of certain IFRS components of such reconciliations due to market-related assumptions that are not within our control as well as certain legal or advisory costs, tax costs or other costs that may arise. For these reasons, management is unable to assess the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could materially impact the amount of the future directly comparable IFRS measures.
4 This projection is based on the Moka Equity Growth investment model, which is 100% invested in the S&P 500. It assumes a 10% rate of annual return, based on the S&P 500’s average return since its inception over the past 65 years, with dividends reinvested. Investing $20 per week for 50 years based on these assumptions would result in an investment of $1.25M. Investing $100 per week would put an investor on track for over $1M in 35 years through the power of compounding interest. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The actual returns may vary.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

This press release makes reference to certain non IFRS financial measures. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These measures are provided as additional information to complement the IFRS financial measures contained herein by providing further metrics to understand the Company’s results of operations from management’s perspective. Accordingly, they should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of our financial information reported under IFRS. We use non IFRS financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Cash provided by (used in) operating activities before investment in gross loans receivable, to provide investors with supplemental measures of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. Our management also uses non IFRS financial measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, prepare annual operating budgets and assess our ability to meet our capital expenditure and working capital requirements. For more information, please see “Non-IFRS Financial Measures” in our Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the period ended March 31, 2024, which is available at and at

The following tables present a reconciliation of each non-IFRS financial measure to the most comparable IFRS financial measure.
