Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are very pleased with the results for the first quarter of 2018. This quarter continues exceptional improvements in quarterly year over year results. The 28% increase in the UCaaS service revenue for the first quarter of 2018 over the first quarter 2017 is very impressive and encouraging. The continued growth in the UCaaS segment is the most important metric we have to monitor our progress; this segment is what will propel the growth in our business and is what will provide value to our shareholders. Also encouraging is that for the third quarter in a row we achieved Non-GAAP net income while continuing to work toward achieving GAAP net income. There was a dramatic decrease in GAAP loses with a $(63,000) net loss for the first quarter and breakeven per diluted common share which was our second consecutive quarter at GAAP breakeven, compared to a net loss of $(515,000) or ($0.04) per diluted common share for the first quarter of 2017."

Mihaylo added, "We continue to do a good job of managing costs. We are continuing to carefully monitor and improve our sales process and integrate those changes into the business. We are improving our internal processes and outreach to both current and potential customers. We are making necessary investments in our products and services. We continue to receive industry awards and recognition as well as accolades from our customers. I am firmly convinced we will continue our steady growth and provide value to our stockholders. I am very proud of our team, our products and our services. I have high expectations for our future growth."

Doug Gaylor, President and Chief Operating Officer, stated, "As I discussed before, good quarterly results are only part of the process. We are working diligently on processes to grow our sales and improve our results. While I am encouraged with the quarter we are working every day with both the partner channel and direct sales channel to raise the bar higher. These are encouraging signs, we continue to improve our partnership with U.S. Cellular, as well as other strategic Partners and have added additional resources to help those Partners grow. I share Steve's optimism and our team is working every day to deliver value to our shareholders and customers."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To evaluate our business, we consider and use non-generally accepted accounting principles (Non-GAAP) net income (loss) 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 (loss) to be an important indicator of overall business performance because it allows us to evaluate results without the effects of share-based compensation, rent expense paid with common stock, interest expense paid with common stock, 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 share-based compensation, and rent expense paid with stock. 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 May 8, 2018 earnings press release, as furnished on Form 8-K, we included Non-GAAP net loss, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The terms Non-GAAP net loss, 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 loss, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for net 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 (loss), EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental support for management's analysis of business performance. Non-GAAP net income (loss), 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.
