DIVERSIFIED ROYALTY CORP. ANNOUNCES CLARIFICATION TO Q4 2021 MD&A
Diversified Royalty Corp. has made a clarification to the relevant comparative period for certain SSSG (same-store sales growth) figures for the Mr. Lube Canada Limited Partnership locations in the Mr. Lube royalty pool originally reported in Diversified Royalty's management discussion and analysis (MD&A) for the three months and year ended Dec. 31, 2021, dated and filed on SEDAR on March 10, 2022.
In the MD&A, it was inadvertently stated that Mr. Lube reported to Diversified Royalty that Mr. Lube generated SSSG for the Mr. Lube stores in the Mr. Lube royalty pool of 21.5 per cent and 10.4 per cent for the three months and year ended Dec. 31, 2021, compared with the three months and year ended Dec. 31, 2020, respectively, when such SSSG figures actually reflected the comparative performance of the Mr. Lube stores in the Mr. Lube royalty pool to the three months and year ended Dec. 31, 2019.
As previously separately stated in the MD&A, Mr. Lube reported to Diversified Royalty that Mr. Lube generated SSSG for the Mr. Lube stores in the Mr. Lube royalty pool of 20.7 per cent and 15.8 per cent for the three months and year ended Dec. 31, 2021, compared with the three months and year endede Dec. 31, 2020, respectively.
The figures were properly reported in Diversified Royalty's news releases dated Feb. 3, 2022, and March 10, 2022, without error. In addition, no other figures reported in the prior MD&A were impacted by this inadvertent error.
