Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer commented, "This was a transformational quarter for us. First, we were able to close a major accretive acquisition. Secondly, we were able to increase our quarterly revenue 43% year over year which is very impressive, particularly when you consider that metric only includes one month of NetSapiens revenue. Finally, our telecom service revenue also increased 20% year over year which is also a very impressive metric. These results bode extremely well for our future. We work every day to improve the business, we are prioritizing actively integrating the Crexendo and NetSapiens teams, that work will provide impressive dividends for our shareholders. Our integration plan has enabled us to roll out what we believe is the best telecom offering in the business, the Crexendo VIP Cloud Communications Platform. We have built VIP on the NetSapiens system which supports over 1.7M end users globally. It is not just our team who is impressed with the VIP offer, we were recently awarded the TMC 2021 Communications Solutions Product of the Year, this is particularly impressive as TMC awarded this coveted honor to us shortly after the release of the product. Our customers and our entire team are excited by the offering, and I am convinced our shareholders will also be excited by the results."

Mihaylo added, "We expected a GAAP loss this quarter, particularly due to the acquisition related costs. We had substantial one-time acquisition costs, additional intangible asset amortization costs, and we also incurred costs related to the buildout and rollout of our VIP platform offering, scheduled upgrades to the Crexendo data center and additional employee costs particularly related to sales. For the foreseeable future GAAP earnings will not be the primary metric I use to measure the business, primarily due to the substantial intangible asset amortization expense from the recent acquisitions. We will be carefully monitoring cash flows from operations, non-GAAP income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as our key performance indicators. I expect those numbers to improve substantially as we continue to grow the business. We are also confident we will see positive results based on the investments made in marketing and the sales processes. In addition, we will start to see cost savings that will be realized by moving the Crexendo customers to the NetSapiens platform enabling us to invest in just one platform. I know there will be operating efficiencies from the acquisition as we will have more cross functionality between the teams. I am very pleased with what we have accomplished so far, but this is only the beginning. I am very excited about our future. "

Doug Gaylor, President and Chief Operating Officer, stated, "I was very pleased with our results and I am thrilled about how well the two organizations are coming together. We are working every day to integrate the Crexendo and NetSapiens businesses and realize the synergies of this accretive acquisition. The senior management teams have been working very closely for some time, and the rest of the teams have been working diligently in finding operational efficiencies. We have already integrated accounting and legal, and we are working on integrating marketing and the teams will be actively finding ways to reduce costs and improve operations. We are very grateful to have added Anand, David and Jim to our senior executive team and we are working diligently together to show great improvements for Crexendo, our shareholders and the NetSapiens community. I share Steve's enthusiasm for our future growth and success."

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 August 10, 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.
