  • EBITDA was impacted by an increase in administrative and administrative costs, including increased management and technology costs, higher than expected transportation department maintenance costs, and acquisition costs related to the Canadian Health Care Agency.

During the second quarter, our Premier Swine business unit experienced a revenue contraction of 8% while Code Blue’s business unit earnings were stable. The two subsidiaries offer similar services with different pricing strategies and resource profiles across the province of Quebec which sometimes leads to inconsistencies in positive or negative revenue generation. The decline in revenue at Premier Swine was mainly due to lower demand for long-term replacement periods and higher demand for short-term daily shifts. This business mix often results in higher turnover rates and, increasingly, increased risk of not being able to meet every request for assets on short notice due to staff availability. We believe that this temporary effect is related to a adjustment period in the reducing epidemic. We have already experienced a change from this situation in April but still expect a certain level of instability in the near future. The Nordic Business Unit has continued its organic growth in the quarter with steady growth of assets in Northern Ontario, Northern Quebec and James Bay. During the quarter, Premier Swan Nordic signed contracts with six additional hospitals. It follows five agreements signed before the first quarter in Northern Ontario.

Non-ambulance transport service

The corporation is still investigating supply chain issues, which has led to further delays in the supply of new vehicles. The first 3 new transport units that were suspended until March 2022 are now scheduled to be delivered only at the end of the third quarter. This has resulted in higher maintenance costs which is affecting EBTDA margins and net income.
