Management Commentary

SNAP's Chief Executive Officer, Alex Harrington, said, "The pro forma revenues for the combined businesses of $21.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 demonstrate a significant increase in scale from pre-Merger Snap's business alone. Though both companies have mature lines of business that have witnessed declines, the combined company has a more substantial platform and a greater resource pool from which to resume growth. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA profitability from the Paltalk business has contributed to an overall positive pro forma Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, as compared to a loss in the comparable period for pre-Merger SNAP."

Business Strategy

Mr. Harrington, said, "The combination of assets of SNAP and Paltalk present many opportunities to serve our unified database of more than 250 million users, and to broaden the combined company's reach ever further. As we commence the integration of the two businesses, we have developed a three year mission to be a leader in social products delivering live video experiences in a mobile world. We intend to pursue numerous avenues of growth for existing products and new initiatives." Mr. Harrington and Jason Katz, who serves as Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Operating Officer, have begun to execute on the following initiatives to support both sides of the business:

Strategy for the Existing Businesses:

- Drive synergistic integration of the respective strengths of the two companies, integrating the live video, chat and dating experiences; and
- Share best practices between SNAP and Paltalk to drive revenue, reduce costs and improve quality of service.

Strategy for New Products and Growth Opportunities:

- Innovation Lab: launch new products and ventures in the live video, dating and social mobile sector;
- Business Development: forge joint ventures and B2B product partnerships;
- Strategic M&A: leverage public currency as an acquirer in the rapidly consolidating industry of the combined company; and
- Intellectual Property: monetize the patent portfolio with a proven track record of licensing income from parties such as Microsoft.

Mr. Katz commented, "The underlying technology supporting our live multi-user video communication on web and mobile is very hard to replicate, and is a distinct competitive advantage. We expect this advantage will not only help us develop industry-leading applications but also provide B2B licensing opportunities. Our intellectual property has historically brought tens of millions of dollars of value to Paltalk through the licensing of its portfolio of patents, which primarily relate to video conferencing and online gaming. We expect the combined company to realize more intellectual property licensing opportunities in the future. Furthermore, on December 16, 2016, Paltalk filed a patent infringement lawsuit in Delaware against Riot Games, Inc. and Valve Corporation for infringement of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,822,523 and 6,226,686 with respect to their online games League of Legends and Defense of the Ancients. These two patents were previously asserted against, and then licensed to, Microsoft, Sony, and Activision."

Capital Markets Strategy

SNAP is taking steps to ultimately uplist its stock on a national securities exchange. To that end, the Company expects that it will effect a reverse stock split at a ratio of 1-for-35 on January 5, 2017. With the addition of Judy Krandel, the new CFO, the Company now has the leadership in place to expand its capital markets focus and pursue growth initiatives.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Metrics

The Company has provided in this release certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, to supplement the condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss adjusted to exclude interest income (expense), net, depreciation and amortization expense, gain (loss) on change in fair value of derivative liabilities, loss on disposal of fixed assets and stock-based compensation expense.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA internally in analyzing the Company's financial results to assess operational performance and to determine the Company's future capital requirements. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to Adjusted EBITDA in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors and others to understand and evaluate the Company's operating results and it allows for a more meaningful comparison between the Company's performance and that of competitors.

Some limitations of Adjusted EBITDA as a financial measure include that:

- Adjusted EBITDA does not (i) reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for assets underlying depreciation and amortization expense that may need to be replaced or for new capital expenditures; (ii) the Company's working capital requirements; (iii) consider the potentially dilutive impact of stock-base compensation; (iv) reflect interest expense or interest payments on our outstanding indebtedness; or (v) reflect the change in fair value of warrants; and

- Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently or choose not to calculate Adjusted EBITDA at all, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA along with other financial performance measures, including total revenues, subscription revenue, deferred revenue, net income (loss), cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, net cash used in operating activities and our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.
