Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer commented, “This was an excellent quarter, and a testament to the incredible work undertaken by the entire team. The results exceeded my expectations. Consolidated total revenue increasing by 113% for the third quarter is a remarkable number. Our record revenue of $8.8 million for the quarter is highly impressive. Our Non-GAAP net income of $800,000 for the quarter, or $0.04 per basic common share and $.03 per diluted common share shows we are executing exceptionally well. While I am pleased that we had pre-tax profitability this quarter it does not change the business will be managed primarily by monitoring cash flows from operations, non-GAAP income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as we still have large GAAP expense due to intangible asset amortization costs from the merger, and other investments made in the business.”

Mihaylo added, “We continue to execute our plans with precision. Over the last several years we have met every milestone we committed to including achieving profitability, organically up-listing to Nasdaq, being able to complete an offering and making a major accretive acquisition. We have done this without mortgaging the future of the Company or making risky gambles. We are meticulous in our planning and are still prioritizing increasing operational efficiencies across both NetSapiens and Crexendo. The teams are working closely together, we are targeting efficiencies and cross reporting to best use the teams to support both the NetSapiens Partners/Licensees and the Crexendo Partners and end-user customers.”

“The acquisition has already provided many benefits outside of the financial results. We are actively migrating customers to the Crexendo VIP platform which uses the best of the NetSapiens award winning platform and the Crexendo Ride the Cloud© award winning benefits, this will provide better service and reduce costs. The NetSapiens team is working with the Crexendo engineering team, whose backgrounds have focused on maximizing customer experience, to help provide additional benefits and enhancements to the entire NetSapiens community. I am thrilled by our progress and even more excited about our future. We will continue to grow the business organically and with appropriate accretive acquisitions. We work every day to increase shareholder value, to make this a better company and to improve the experience for our constituencies. I know this will be an exciting time for our shareholders, our employees, Crexendo Partners and end-user customers and the entire NetSapiens Partners/Licensees.”

Doug Gaylor, President and Chief Operating Officer, stated, “I want to take this opportunity to thank every member of the combined team, without their hard work and commitment to making this merger work we could not have achieved these strong results. Every single one of us work tirelessly every day to maximize efficiencies, to increase shareholder value and to make the best experience possible for the NetSapiens Partners/Licensees and the Crexendo Partners and end-user customers. The teams worked together effectively on the highly successful NetSapiens User Group Meeting which occurred in October and afforded the Crexendo team the opportunity to meet a large number of the Partners/Licensees and understand their needs and concerns. This week we have most of the NetSapiens executive management team here in Phoenix working with the Crexendo team as we continue to learn from each other and work daily to improve the combined company. I am confident that this quarter’s results will be just the first of many results that will impress our shareholders, our employees, and our customers.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To evaluate our business, we consider and use non-generally accepted accounting principles (“Non-GAAP”) net income and Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of operating performance. These measures include the same adjustments that management takes into account when it reviews and assesses operating performance on a period-to-period basis. We consider Non-GAAP net income to be an important indicator of overall business performance because it allows us to evaluate results without the effects of share-based compensation, acquisition related expenses and amortization of intangibles. We define EBITDA as U.S. GAAP net income/(loss) before interest income, interest expense, other income and expense, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. We believe EBITDA provides a useful metric to investors to compare us with other companies within our industry and across industries. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted for acquisition related expenses and share-based compensation. We use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to review and assess operating performance. We also believe use of Adjusted EBITDA facilitates investors’ use of operating performance comparisons from period to period, as well as across companies.

In our November 9, 2021 earnings press release, as furnished on Form 8-K, we included Non-GAAP net income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The terms Non-GAAP net income, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA are not defined under U.S. GAAP, and are not measures of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, Non-GAAP net income, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for net income/(loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations include, but are not limited to:

  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • they do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt that we may incur;
  • they do not reflect income taxes or the cash requirements for any tax payments;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will be replaced sometime in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • while share-based compensation is a component of operating expense, the impact on our financial statements compared to other companies can vary significantly due to such factors as the assumed life of the options and the assumed volatility of our common stock; and
  • other companies may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and using Non-GAAP net income, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental support for management’s analysis of business performance. Non-GAAP net income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are calculated as follows for the periods presented.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In accordance with the requirements of Regulation G issued by the SEC, we are presenting the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures and reconciling the unaudited Non-GAAP financial metrics to the comparable U.S. GAAP measures.
