  • Between May 21 and May 27, President Jeffrey Litchfield bought 10,129 shares at an average price of CAD 5.45, totaling CAD 55,234.

In summary, the insiders made an accumulative investment of CAD 389,334. 

Financial Performance

The Facilities services firm recently announced its Q1 2024 results.

In Q1 2024, Dexterra's IFM and WAFES units saw a 7.2% revenue increase to $231.6 million, driven by new contracts and robust activity. Adjusted EBITDA was $19.6 million, down from Q4 2023 due to seasonal factors but supported by strong access matting and defense contracts. Net earnings from continuing operations were $4.4 million. Free Cash Flow improved to $10.6 million from a $5.1 million deficit in Q1 2023. The acquisition of CMI expanded Dexterra's U.S. IFM presence. 

However, the company faced a $3.6 million net loss due to discontinued Modular operations. Dexterra also repurchased shares and declared a Q2 2024 dividend of $0.0875 per share.

Taking into account, the positional change of multiple insiders in the firm, with positive growth in revenue and cash flow, it won’t be wrong to deduce that the firm is posed for a potentially bullish future.
