Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are very excited with the results just announced. 2017 results were a substantial improvement over 2016 results. This is due to our performance and commitment to driving improvements to the business. We have performed very well, and I believe our results will continue to impress. I find particularly promising the strong improvement in the fourth quarter 2017 over the fourth quarter 2016. The substantial increase in consolidated revenue for Q4 2017 over Q4 2016 of 22% is very encouraging, and I believe supports that the operational improvements we have undertaken are the reason for the results. It is particularly promising that we were breakeven on a GAAP basis per diluted common share in Q4 compared to a $(.04) loss in Q4 2016. The results were even more dramatic on a Non-GAAP basis with a profit of $.01 per diluted common share in Q4 2017, compared to a $(.02) loss in Q4 2016.

Mihaylo added, “I am also very pleased that even with our increase in revenue and continued upgrades in the business we have still managed to keep costs in line. I believe we did a remarkable job of containing costs with only a very small increase in expenses in Q4 2017, compared to Q4 2016. We expect to continue to work hard on keeping our costs as reasonable as possible while working to improve operations and results. We continue to work diligently on growing and improving our Partner Channel and that resulted in some significant new Partners added to our team during the Quarter. We never lose focus on providing our customers the best service, the best products and the best support in the industry. We know our award-winning Ride The Cloud ® Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) are second to none and will save our customers substantial amounts of money while increasing their productivity. As more and more companies move to the cloud we know we are in the right space at the right time. Our team is constantly working to improve our processes and partnerships to increase shareholder value.”

Doug Gaylor, President and COO, stated, “While these results are very encouraging it is only a start. The team and I work every day to improve our sales efforts, processes and results, and we are seeing the effects of these efforts. We know that when we get our top of the industry services and products in front of customers we can win that business. Our sales and engineering integration allows us to provide our customers with solutions that meet their needs. We believe that ability, as well as our products and services, will continue to distinguish us with our partners and enable us to build new partnerships like the recently announced partnership we developed with U.S. Cellular. We fully expect to have those partnerships improve our results.”

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 March 6, 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.
