Fiscal First Quarter FY 2023 Total Revenues Grew by 287% Year-over-Year to a Record of Approximately $4.0 million; Committed to Reaching Cash Flow Neutrality From Existing Operations in CY ‘23

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November 14, 2022 / The Glimpse Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:VRAR, FSE:9DR) ("Glimpse" or the "Company"), a diversifiedVirtual Reality and Augmented Reality ("VR" and "AR") platform company providing enterprise-focused VR and AR software & services immersive technology solutions, provided financial results for its fiscal first quarter ended September 30, 2022 ("Q1 FY'23").

Business Commentary by President & CEO Lyron Bentovim

Q1 FY '23 (July - September ‘22) was highlighted by:

  • Record Q1 FY'23 quarterly revenue of approximately $4.0 million, a 287% increase compared to Q1 FY'22 revenues of approximately $1.0 million, and a 58% increase compared to Q4 FY '22, in which we had our prior record quarterly revenue of approximately $2.5 million.
  • Record Q1 FY'23 Core Software & Services revenue, which excludes project revenue, of approximately $1.28 million, an increase of 49% compared to Q1 FY'22.
  • The Q1 FY'23 results include two months of Brightline Interactive ("BLI") financials, the acquisition of which closed on August 1, 2022. BLI generated approximately $5 million of revenues in calendar year 2021, with 65% gross margins and positive net income.
  • The Company's cash and equivalent position as of September 30, 2022 was approximately $13.0 million, including $2 million cash held in escrow for potential future performance payments relating to the S5D acquisition. With the core S5D and Brightline acquisitions complete, we do not expect to utilize our current cash balance as part of the purchase price of any acquisition we may make in the foreseeable future.
  • We continue to maintain a clean capital structure with no debt, no convertible debt, no preferred equity or any other material cash obligations.
  • In Q1, 2023, Gross Margin was approximately 70% and Adjusted EBITDA loss for the quarter was $1.1 million, compared to a $0.6 million Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021.
  • The Company's operating cost structure remains predominantly variable. Through continued revenue growth, combined with expense controls, we are committed to reaching cash flow neutrality from our existing operations in calendar year '23.

Recent Operational Highlights:

  • Continued to enter into contracts and partnership with leading global companies. For example:
    • Glimpse subsidiary company S5D completed a mid-6 figure contract for the development of a 3D interactive gamified experience and NFTs for a partner event in numerus geographies held by a Fortune 50 global technology company.
    • Glimpse subsidiary company XR Terra entered into six figure agreement with one of the largest telecommunication companies for the training in VR skills of several hundred K-12 teachers.
    • Glimpse subsidiary company S5D entered into mid-six figure agreement with a global pharmaceutical company, to continue development of its interactive anatomy training platform.
    • Glimpse subsidiary company BLI is partnering with AT&T for a collaborative immersive technologies/5G demonstration to be deployed at I/ITSEC, the largest training and Simulation Tradeshow in the US.
  • Successfully completed the integration process of S5D, BLI and PulpoAR.
  • Just as Glimpse has achieved critical scale in aggregate, we believe that there are key strategic advantages in creating more scale within our subsidiary companies. As such, we have begun the process of consolidating some of our subsidiary companies into larger core entities, a process which we expect will be concluded by year-end 2022. At the end of this process, we expect to have 6-8 larger remaining subsidiary companies, which will allow us to maximize go-to-market and branding synergies, optimize operations and reduce overlaps.

Recent IP Highlights

We expanded our Intellectual Property assets with two new patents via the BLI transaction:

  • 9th U.S. Patent for an "Immersive Ecosystem", which transferred to Glimpse from BLI.
  • 10th U.S. Patent for "System and Method for Generating an Augmented Reality Experience", which transferred to Glimpse from BLI.

We have several more patents in process and view our patents as forward looking, strategically positioned, with significant potential and importance when the immersive industry matures.

Summary

"Our first quarter of FY ‘23 served as continued validation of our organic and accretive acquisition growth strategies," said Lyron Bentovim, President and CEO of The Glimpse Group. "In a challenging environment, we maintained strong momentum, finalized the integration of our three recent acquisitions, and achieved a record revenue results, well above our previous records. We have consistently proven our ability to rapidly scale and are solidifying our position as a premier player in the immersive technology software and services space. With that, the immersive technology industry is still in its early stages of development and we are cognizant of the macro trends. Therefore - as a strategic goal - we are determined and committed to reach cash flow neutrality from the operations of our current business in 2023."

Q1 FY '23 Financial Summary

  • Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2022, was approximately $4.0 million compared to approximately $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of approximately 287%. The increase reflects the addition of several subsidiary companies after September 30, 2021, organic growth and new customers.
  • For the three months ended September 30, 2022, Software Services revenue was approximately $3.9 million compared to approximately $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of approximately 383%. The increase reflects the addition of several subsidiary companies after September 30, 2021, organic growth and new customers
  • For the three months ended September 30, 2022, Software License revenue was approximately $0.09 million compared to approximately $0.22 million for the for the three months ended September 30, 2021, reflecting a difference in timing of renewals.
  • For the three months ended September 30, 2022, core software and services revenue (i.e. VR/AR software and services revenue, excluding projects), was approximately $1.3 million compared to approximately $0.86 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of approximately 49%. For the three months ended September 30, 2022, core software and services revenue accounted for approximately 32% of total revenues compared to approximately 84% for the three months ended September 30, 2021.
  • For the three months ended September 30, 2022, gross profit margin was approximately 69%, compared to a gross profit margin of approximately 85% for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The decrease was driven by the addition of BLI and S5D lower margin project revenue.
  • Operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2022, were approximately $8.2 million compared to $2.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of approximately 260%. The increase was driven by employee headcount additions to support growth, the addition of several new subsidiaries (which includes headcount, amortization of intangibles and professional fees related to the acquisitions) and the change in fair value of acquisition contingent consideration.
  • We sustained a net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2022 of $5.4 million, compared to a net loss of approximately $1.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, a loss increase of $3.72 million or 224%. $2.41 million of this loss increase is driven by the non-cash change in fair value of acquisition contingent consideration. The balance primarily represents operating expense growth outpacing revenue and related gross profit. This reflects current expense outlays in all areas of the Company to propel future growth, including the acquisition of several new subsidiaries and related costs.
  • Net cash used in operating activities for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was approximately $3.1 million, compared to approximately $1.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021.
  • For the three months ended September 30, 2022 Adjusted EBITDA loss, a non-GAAP measure, was $1.1 million, compared to $0.6 million Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021.
  • As of September 30, 2022, the Company's cash position was approximately $10.6 million plus $0.24 million of liquid corporate bond investments, compared to $16.2 million at June 30, 2022. This includes $2.0 million cash escrow for contingent consideration of the S5D acquisition, payable upon S5D's achievement of revenue growth performance targets (refundable to Glimpse if targets not achieved). The Company has no convertible debt, preferred equity or material cash obligations.

Note about Non-GAAP Financial Measures

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP. Non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP measures. Other companies may use different non-GAAP measures and presentation of results.

In addition to financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release presents adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA is determined by taking net loss and adding interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation expenses. The company believes that this non-GAAP measure, viewed in addition to and not in lieu of net loss, provides useful information to investors by providing a more focused measure of operating results. This metric is an integral part of the Company's internal reporting to evaluate its operations and the performance of senior management. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most comparable GAAP measure, is available in the accompanying financial tables below. The non-GAAP measure presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
