Net income after tax of the Corporation reached $22,594 for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $308,431 for the same period last year, the release continues.

EBITDA reached $270,019 compared to $673,270 for the same period last year.

The decline in the result is due to the lower traffic generated by the closure of some offices, market developments and increased competition in Quebec, per the release.
