    MD&A Highlights

    The Company’s operations consist of five main segments: Insurance Services, Retail Services, Dealer Services, Information Technology (IT) Services, and Advertising/Marketing Services.

    Liquidity
    Based on a cash position of $196,813 and accounts receivable of $299,594, management feels that the Company is in a good position to meet all current and foreseeable financial obligations. With the closing of the Mister Beer production facility, expenses have been reduced. The other divisions of Armada are poised for revenue gains this fiscal year as a result of new project and feature launches as well as more than one significant partnership that the Insurance and Retail Service teams are working on. Management believes that the data divisions will not only remain very stable and profitable but begin to make significant inroads in new verticals that will result from our partnerships, project releases and new revenue streams.

    The CarCostCanada.com divisions (Retail and Dealer services) are not be void of the competition that has made significant advancements over the past three years; however, the divisions have now learned how to deal with our competition and overcome many of their tactics. The Retail and Dealer services division were competition-free for many years and had to re-group and re-strategize in order to prevent further erosion caused by an overly aggressive new competitor. Management expects CarCostCanada.com to start realizing market gains this fiscal year and with the overall new car market remaining poised for more growth nationally (and more specifically in the web-rich Canadian urban centres), the division plans to earn more members to enhance the new car buying process for the Canadian new car buying marketplace.

    Outlook

    The Company’s outlook is to continue to increase sales, update and improve our data services products and services, and deliver significantly better results to our shareholders by way of the following:
    1. Build on the historical success of the Company’s ongoing sales and marketing efforts focused on increasing sales at Retail Services, Dealer Services and Insurance Services.
    2. Exploit market awareness and demand for new vehicle pricing information and dealer referrals that result from the additional competition within that market space; by putting more emphasis on outside partners, data outsourcing and our underutilized online magazine TheCarMagazine.com
    3. Continue to improve our relationships with some of the largest insurance companies in Canada and partner with some of these organizations to produce new products and services for their vast client base.
    4. Maintain operating expenses and achieve the economies of scales of an Internet based business.
    5. Expand third-party fee-based online advertising, by developing improved and more secure advertising methods.

    Operations

    The Company’s total sales decreased by 6% in the quarter ended November 30, 2015, from $580,517 in 2014, to $545,409. Comprehensive income increased from a loss of $(71,214) in the period ended November 30, 2014 to $34,364 in the period ended November 30, 2015.

    The Insurance Services division experienced an 11% increase in revenue, from $252,525 in 2014 to $280,719 in 2015.

    The Retail Services division revenue was down 22% to $64,727 in 2015 from $82,826 in 2014. The updated CarCostCanada.com website, as well as the new Partners and Discounts program clearly helped the CarCostCanada.com membership program maintain a strong presence in the marketplace, despite increasing competition.

    The Dealer Services division revenue remained much the same, at $161,981 in 2014, and $162,013 in 2015. This division’s dealer development team has a plan to service the customers who find themselves without a dealer referral, although full implementation of this program has not been completed at the end of this period.

    The Advertising/Marketing Services division, which derives its revenue from the sale of online third party advertising on CarCostCanada.com and TheCarMagazine.com increased from $100 to $7,298.

    The Information Technology division revenue increased 11% to $30,652 in 2015, up from $27,550 in 2014. IT continues to offer technical support and web site hosting to hundreds of customers, and to develop new customer relationships on a regular basis.

    The Mister Beer division’s revenues are down from $55,535 to nil. Direct product costs and labour decreased from $53,633 to nil. The net income for Mister Beer Inc. went from $1,902 in 2014 to nil in 2015. Management made the decision to close the production facility on December 31, 2014, in order to explore options with respect to a sale or other disposition of the Bottle Brew business line. This division’s assets were disposed of during the period ended November 30, 2015.

    Total expenses before amortization decreased to $500,984 compared to $561,314, a 11% decrease over last year. This is attributed to ceasing production at Mister Beer Inc. and continued cost-cutting measures implemented by management during the previous quarter.

    Very few sellers on ARD and with more profitable quarters coming in, the price will go up. But also keep in mind that insiders/institutions own most of the 17.5 million common shares. Level 2 below:

    Trading at a two year high today, but still a very cheap price considering the three profitable quarters of over $0.01c EPS and solid balance sheet. Armada's big problem the last four years was that home made wine kit that cost them millions, however their turnaround plan is so far working.

    Spoke to ARD management and they are quite busy with an influx of new work, along with updating the CarCost website, Car Magazine website, and then finally the main site. We should also be getting a presentation of some sort soon which will help current and future shareholders see where the company is going with it's 5 different revenue streams.

    It's been the same level two for weeks, kind of setting up the same way CTZ did last year and IRO did this year, except less dilution and better earnings. This will pop in time.

    Just a little bit of buying this week and that's cleaned up some of the level 2. There's really nothing left for sale under 10c and another $70K+ net income for Q4 2015 and for Q1 2016 would likely send the price back to a multi year high. But we'll have to wait until September and October to see those results. Level 2 below:

    A couple shares came down, but still not much for sale given the price is near a multi year high. The wait for year end will be a while, but more profitable quarters will keep the price going up. Would be nice to see news and an updated website.

    ARD is finally trading at a more realistic price level compared to the company earnings over the last 9 months. They earned over $0.01 eps and a 10-15 times multiple is proper for a junior. End of September we will have Q4 and year end results and end of October Q1 2016 results. If those quarters are also profitable(which I believe they will be since the disposition of Mr.Beer has helped greatly), ARD should reach the $0.20-0.25 range. Level 2 below:

    Common Shares: 17.7 million, 50% held by directors
    Note: In 2011, ARD purchased Mister Beer and wrote it off in 2015
    Note: In 2012, a director and one of the largest shareholders passed away
    Note: CEO and 20% shareholder Jim Matthews loans company $200,000 Feb.2015
    Note: 2016 Sales only based on first three quarters. Year end will be out end of September

    2006 – Sales: $1.56M – Net Loss: $48K – Assets:663K – Liabilities - $151K – Dividend - 0
    2007 – Sales: $1.67M – Net Income: $100K – Assets: $792K – Liabilities - $107K – Dividend - 0

    2015 – Sales: $2M – Net Loss: $640K – Assets: $730K – Liabilities - $660K – Dividends – 0
    2016 – Sales: $1.6M – Net Income: $186K – Assets: $854K – Liabilities - $597K – Dividends paid yearly

    After 10 years of sales, it’s clear to see how ARD.V had grown as a company from 2006 to 2011, even through the financial crisis of 2008. However, after the asset purchase of Mister Beer in 2011 and passing of director Paul Timoteo, the combination hurt the company from 2012 to 2015 and almost made it go bankrupt. With the directors now focused on the original five revenue producing assets, along with some cost reductions, ARD will be able to recover back to a profitable position and possibly pay dividends once again. So far after 9 months without Mister Beer, ARD has earned over 1 cent in net income and this should continue to carry forward.

    Good to see the level 2 looking thin on the ask side. I think interested buyers need to realize that ARD is worth more than $0.10 and the lack of sellers reinforces this notion. From what I posted already, it makes sense that Mister Beer was the culprit of quarterly losses for years. Now the company is definitely on a reversal course which will lead to larger yearly profits, dividends, and making shareholders happy overall. 9 weeks left to go before we see year end, but the update coming in August will be awesome and then Q1 in October should show five straight quarters of profits.

    Sure is amazing how crap shoot mining stocks that just reorganized can go up 1000% on nothing(talking about GUL.V right now), yet ARD which is a proven profitable company with nearly the exact same float stays quiet. Investors need to smarten up and at least buy a company that can pay it's own bills rather than just dilute itself a thousand times over. Yes I owned GUL back in 2004 and it got me started in the small cap game, but it's not worth anything these days if you ask me.

    Just checking google and I seem to have found the prototype for Armada's new insurance page. You can tell it's them because when you scroll to the bottom, you'll see all their disclaimers. Sounds as if they are expanding to the US for insurance. However, when my friend spoke to the company they mentioned an update on the CarCostCanada and TheCarMagazine websites. Now it seems the insurance portion is expanding too. Lots of major things coming soon.
