COCONUT CREEK, Fla., July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - ProBility Media Corp. (OTCPK: PBYA), an education company building the first online and hands on combined full-service training and career advancement brand for the skilled trades, announces its financial results for the fiscal years ending 2021 and 2020.

Successful Restructuring and Highlights    

The Company changed its fiscal year end to May 31.

Beginning in 2019, ProBility Media Corp. (ProBility or PBYA) went through a restructuring to eliminate non-performing divisions and excess corporate overhead.  Compared to its last public filing in 2018, management successfully retired or settled over $8.1 million in debt, reducing its debt by over 56%.

For fiscal year ending May 31, 2020, management successfully turned an operating profit of $321,549 compared to an accumulated loss of over $12.9 million through April of 2018 and $6.5 million in the three months between February and April 2018. Management's efforts eliminated a run rate of over $12 million in annual operating losses to an operating profit.

     Senior management removed the majority of subsidiary management in 2019 and reduced overhead dramatically.  These efforts allowed ProBility to sustain a period of reduced revenue during COVID-19 for its two subsidiaries North American Crane Bureau (NACB) and Disco Learning Media (Disco) that rely heavily on revenue from training within large corporations.

In late 2019, management began an aggressive switch from physical classes at its existing locations to additional virtual classes.  In March 2020, ProBility was prepared to handle the increase of 500% attendance in virtual programs.  The focus on virtual programs and digital marketing lead ProBility to expand its programs offered to over 15 states in the United States.

In recent months, NACB and Disco have returned to pre-Covid revenue.  NACB has emerged as one of the few remaining crane, hoist and safety training providers in the United States.  Demand for its programs and services have increased to the point that additional trainers had to be added to accommodate the increase in corporate training.  NACB is poised to grow substantially over the next few years as we are able to offer new programs, superior training with reduced competition.       

"We are proud to be celebrating our 35th year anniversary. Our clients appreciate the longevity and credibility of NACB's brand," stated Dana Jackson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for North American Crane Bureau Group. "NACB is in the process of beginning new significant relationships with large Fortune 500 corporations.  We are very excited about our growth in the coming year.  We have started receiving inquiries from our international partners in Europe and South America as well as their countries open up post Covid-19," continued Mr. Jackson.

One Exam Prep benefited substantially from the change during Covid-19 to a virtual format.  Virtual class attendance increased over 500% and it passed the mark of over 50,000 students taught in multiple contractor specialties.  One Exam has expanded its online programs by adding over 200 new courses over the past 18 months. 

Disco Learning Media recently reiterated a strong recovery post Covid-19 including the addition of new relationships with CPS Energy, the largest public power, natural gas and electric company in the United States.  Disco expects to expand its relationship with the State of Texas and University of Texas in 2021.  Disco has enjoyed a strong relationship with Itron Inc. as it continues its contract through 2024.

     "2022 is expected to be a banner year for Disco as we close in on various contracts we had been close to signing prior to Covid-19.  We believe Disco will continue to add support to ProBility's additional subsidiaries as we connect our relationships with public and private institutions into additional services provided by One Exam and NACB." stated Juan Garcia, President of Disco Learning Media Inc.

"Our fastidious two year turnaround from an extraordinary global circumstance has led ProBility to be in  a position to begin looking at strategic acquisitions in the education and training industry for vocational trades, " stated Noah Davis, President and CFO of ProBility Media Corp. "Our goal is to become the leader in vocational digital education and training for the over 5,000 licenses and certifications around the United States. Acquisitions must meet the criteria that would increase virtual presence in the growing vocational industry and allow for additional streamlining of operations to reduce overhead as a percentage of revenue resulting in continued profitability. We are endeavoring and hopeful that these accomplishments will result in a return to historical equity prices of PBYA for our shareholders," continued Mr. Davis.
