NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / May 15, 2024 / The Glimpse Group, Inc. ("Glimpse") (NASDAQ:VRAR)(FSE:9DR), a diversified Immersive Technology platform company providing enterprise-focused Virtual Reality ("VR"), Augmented Reality ("AR") and Spatial Computing software and services, provided financial results for its third quarter fiscal year 2024, ended March 31, 2024 ("Q3 FY'24").

Business Summary by President & CEO Lyron Bentovim

  • Earlier today, we announced that our subsidiary company, Brightline Interactive ("BLI"), entered into a $4MM+, 12-month contract with a Department of Defense ("DoD") entity for a Spatial Computing ecosystem, integrating AI workflows and accelerated compute for a variety of defense use-cases. Please see separate related 8K and press release.
  • We are in the process of securing several additional multi-million dollar Spatial Computing/Cloud/AI contracts with multiple Government, DoD and large enterprise customers. The short-term aggregate value for these contracts is in the $8-12 million range. While there is no guarantee that some or all of these will come to fruition, we anticipate that a good portion of these will close before CY-end ‘24, with additional potential in CY ‘25.
  • Each of these potential contracts has significant growth elements built into them that could lead to significant annual recurring software revenue.
  • Looking forward, we expect revenues to be generally flat to up in the coming two quarters as we finalize our divestiture plans and then grow significantly in Q4 CY 2024 and into 2025 as we start recognizing the revenues from the DoD entity contract we signed and the others we expect to follow.
  • As previously discussed, we have made significant reductions in our operating cash expense base as reflected by a 62% reduction in our Operating expenses this quarter compared to the same quarter last year. Our operational cash breakeven point is now at approximately $3 million revenue per quarter or $12 million revenue annually. Given our current level of revenues and subject to the signing of some of the contracts mentioned above, we expect to be cash flow positive from our operations commencing in September '24 and onwards. In such a scenario, and given our current cash balance, we expect to be self-sufficient without needing any external fundings.
  • These strides increasingly validate our transition to enterprise-scale Spatial Computing/Cloud/AI driven Immersive recurring software solutions, and the divestiture of non-core operating assets. As was previously discussed and as expected, the temporary impact of this strategic transition was lower revenue.
  • Q3 FY '24 quarterly revenue of approximately $1.9 million, a 48% decrease compared to revenue of approximately $3.7 million in Q3 FY '23 which was our record revenue quarter.
  • Gross Margin for Q3 FY ‘24 was approximately 70% compared to 67% for Q3 FY ‘23. We expect our Gross Margins to continue to remain in the 65-75% range.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss for Q3 FY'24 of approximately $0.89 million, compared to an EBITDA loss of approximately $1.13 million for Q3 FY '23, a quarter in which the revenues were far higher.

Q3 FY '24 Financial Summary (for full detail of our financial results please refer to our 8K and 10Q filed on 5/15/24)

  • Total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was approximately $1.9 million compared to approximately $3.67 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, a decrease of 48%. Total revenue for the nine months ended March 31, 2024 was approximately $7.08 million compared to approximately $10.57 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2023, a decrease of 33%. The decrease for both periods reflects our strategic shift to Spatial Computing, Cloud and AI driven immersive software solutions ("Strategic Shift"), which has resulted in a significant turnover in our historical customer base and divestiture of non-strategic assets.
  • Gross profit margin was approximately 70% for the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to approximately 67% for the three months ended March 31, 2023. The increase was driven by higher gross margin Software License/SaaS and non-project Software Services representing a greater percentage of total revenue. Gross profit margin was approximately 66% for the nine months ended March 31, 2024 compared to approximately 69% for the nine months ended March 31, 2023. The decrease was driven by the lower margin on project revenue in the current fiscal year due to a larger use of outside contractors.
  • Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2024 were approximately $2.93 million compared to $7.73 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, a decrease of 62%. This reflects a decrease in primarily all expense categories, reduced investment in non-core areas and divesting non-core assets to align with reduced revenue as a result our Strategic Shift, along with a gain in the change in fair value of acquisition contingent consideration. Operating expenses for the nine months ended March 31, 2024 were approximately $7.26 million compared to $16.74 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2023, a decrease of 57%. This reflects a decrease in all expense categories, reduced investment in non-core areas and divesting non-core assets to align with reduced revenue as a result our Strategic Shift, along with an increased gain in the change in fair value of acquisition contingent consideration.
  • Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $1.54 million, as compared to a net loss of $5.22 million for the comparable 2023 period, a $3.68 million improvement or approximately 70%. This reflects decreased revenue/gross margin offset by a decrease in operating expenses and a gain in change in fair value of acquisition contingent consideration. Net loss for the nine months ended March 31, 2024 was $2.40 million, as compared to a net loss of $9.30 million for the comparable 2023 period, a $6.90 million improvement or approximately 74%. This reflects decreased revenue/gross margin and increased intangible asset impairment offset by a decrease in operating expenses and an increased gain in change in fair value of acquisition contingent consideration.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was $0.89 million compared to a loss of $1.13 million for the comparable 2023 period. Adjusted EBITDA loss for the nine months ended March 31, 2024 was $3.50 million compared to a loss of $4.78 million for the comparable 2023 period. The reduced EBITDA loss for both periods reflect cash expense reductions in excess of the decrease in revenue/gross margin.
  • As of March 31, 2024, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $4.3 million.
  • The Company has no outstanding corporate debt or preferred equity 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.
