Management Commentary

“The third quarter was yet another tremendous result,” commented Michael Pope, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We again exceeded our guidance and delivered our strongest quarter to date with $61 million in revenue, $7 million in Adjusted EBITDA, and for the first time as a company, positive net income and positive earnings per share. For five consecutive quarters, we have delivered positive Adjusted EBITDA and above market revenue growth. For the trailing twelve months ended Q3, we reported $214 million orders, $173 million revenue and $15 million Adjusted EBITDA.”

“We concluded the third quarter with an improved balance sheet including $32 million working capital and $55 million net assets.”

“We continue to see double-digit growth globally and expect to deliver $40 million in revenue for the fourth quarter, representing 26% growth over the same quarter last year. For the full year 2022, we are forecasting $230 million in revenue representing approximately 27% growth over our 2021 guidance, and greater than 10% Adjusted EBITDA.”

“I would like to recognize our amazing leadership team and talented and diligent employees. Our success as a company is a direct result of our ability to hire and retain tremendous talent.”

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2021

Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2021 were $61.0 million as compared to $9.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, resulting in a 544% increase, due primarily to the acquisition of Sahara in September 2020 and increased demand for our solutions.

Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $15.8 million as compared to $2.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The gross profit margin for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was 25.9% which is an improvement of 45 basis points compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020. Gross profit margin, adjusted for the net effect of acquisition-related purchase accounting, was 27.1% as compared to the 23.4%, as adjusted, reported for the three months ended September 30, 2020. As reported in previous quarters this year, gross margins have been adversely impacted by approximately four percentage points due to increased freight and customs costs caused by supply chain challenges associated with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic; this is anticipated to continue for the remainder of 2021. Additional pressure on margin has been seen on the cost of manufacturing as a result of component shortages which have had an adverse impact of approximately 5% in the quarter. To mitigate this, we have increased pricing to customers.

Total operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2021 were $12.3 million as compared to $3.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase primarily resulted from additional overhead costs associated with the acquired Sahara operations in September 2020.

Other income (expense) for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was net expense of $(1.4) million, as compared to net expense of $(2.5) million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Other expense decreased primarily due to $1.1 million fewer losses recognized upon the settlement of certain debt obligations in exchange for issuance of common shares, offset by a $339 thousand increase in interest expense associated with increased borrowings.

The Company reported net income of $729 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2021 as compared to a net loss of $(4.2) million for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

The net income attributable to common shareholders was $412 thousand and $(4.2) million loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, after deducting the fixed dividends to Series B preferred shareholders of $317 thousand in 2021 and zero in 2020.

Total comprehensive loss was $(1.3) million and $(3.7) million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, reflecting the effect of cumulative foreign currency translation adjustments on consolidation, with the net effect in the quarter of $(2.0) million loss and $536 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

The EPS for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $0.01 per basic and diluted share, compared to $(0.10) loss per basic and diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

EBITDA for the three months ending September 30, 2021 was $4.7 million, as compared to $(3.4) million EBITDA loss for the three months ending September 30, 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $7.2 million, as compared to $(0.8) million loss for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Adjustments to EBITDA include stock-based compensation expense, gains/losses recognized upon the settlement of certain debt instruments, gains/losses from the remeasurement of derivative liabilities, and the effects of purchase accounting adjustments in connection with acquisitions.

At September 30, 2021, Boxlight had $6.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, $32.0 million in working capital, $31m inventory, $173.6 million in total assets, $23.9 debt, $54.9 million in stockholders’ equity, 61.3 million common shares issued and outstanding, and 3.1 million preferred shares issued and outstanding.

Financial Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 were $141.2 million as compared to $23.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, resulting in a 513% increase due primarily to the acquisition of Sahara in September 2020 and increased demand for our solutions.

Gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $37.2 million as compared to $6.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The gross profit margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was 26.3% compared to 27.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Gross profit margin, adjusted for the net effect of acquisition-related purchase accounting, was 28.0% as compared to the 28.4%, as adjusted, reported for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. As reported in previous quarters this year, gross margins have been adversely impacted by approximately four percentage points due to increased freight and customs costs caused by supply chain challenges associated with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic; this is anticipated to continue for the remainder of 2021. Additional pressure on margin has been seen on the cost of manufacturing as a result of component shortages which have had an adverse impact of approximately 3.9% in the 9 months to September 30, 2020. To mitigate this, we have increased pricing to customers.

Total operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 were $34.2 million as compared to $11.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase primarily resulted from additional overhead costs associated with the acquired Sahara operations in September 2020.

Other income (expense) for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was net expense of $(5.8) million, as compared to net expense of $2.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in other expense was due to $1.0 million of increased interest expense associated with increased borrowings, $2.5 million of losses recognized on the settlement of certain debt obligations that were exchanged for common shares.

The Company reported a net loss of $(6.7) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 as compared to a net loss of $(7.6) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

The net loss attributable to common shareholders was $(7.2) million and $(7.6) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, after deducting fixed dividends to Series B preferred shareholders of $952 thousand in 2021 and the fair value revaluation deemed contribution of $367 thousand following the redemption amendment with the Series B shareholders signed June 14, 2021.

Total comprehensive loss was $(8.4) million and $(7.2) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, reflecting the effect of cumulative foreign currency translation adjustments on consolidation, with the net effect year to date of $(1.7) million loss and $(0.4) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

The EPS loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $(0.12) per basic and diluted share, compared to $(0.31) per basic and diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

EBITDA for the nine months ending September 30, 2021 was $5.2 million, as compared to $(5.2) million EBITDA loss for the nine months ending September 30, 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $14.1 million, as compared to a loss of $(1.5) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Adjustments to EBITDA include stock-based compensation expense, gains/losses recognized upon the settlement of certain debt instruments, gains/losses from the remeasurement of derivative liabilities, and the effects of purchase accounting adjustments in connection with acquisitions.

At September 30, 2021, Boxlight had $6.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, $32.0 million in working capital, $31m inventory, $173.6 million in total assets, $23.9 debt, $54.9 million in stockholders’ equity, 61.3 million common shares issued and outstanding, and 3.1 million preferred shares issued and outstanding.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Boxlight’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Boxlight provides EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of its performance.

To provide investors with additional insight and allow for a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and decision-making surrounding pro forma operations, we supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, with EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP financial measures of earnings. EBITDA represents net income before income tax expense (benefit), interest expense, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA plus stock-based compensation, the change in fair value of derivative liabilities, purchase accounting impact of inventory markup, and non- cash losses associated with debt settlement. Our management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as financial measures to evaluate the profitability and efficiency of our business model. We use these non-GAAP financial measures to assess the strength of the underlying operations of our business. These adjustments, and the non-GAAP financial measures that are derived from them, provide supplemental information to analyze our operations between periods and over time. We find this especially useful when reviewing pro forma results of operations, which include large non-cash amortizations of intangible assets from acquisitions and stock-based compensation. Investors should consider our non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
