Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer commented, 'I continue to be very excited about the progress we are making and the direction we are headed. While I would have preferred to continue our streak of profitability, we fully expected to operate at a loss this quarter due to the expenses associated with the NetSapiens merger. There were some very good markers for us this quarter, UCaaS service revenue for the first quarter of 2021 increased 21% compared to the first quarter of 2020 and consolidated service revenue increased 19% year-over-year. These are very important and promising trends. It was also a transformational quarter for us with the signing of the merger agreement with NetSapiens. Our proxy is out to our shareholders and we should be able to close the NetSapiens merger hopefully by the end of this month. As I have said before, we will continue to grow the business both organically and through acquisitions, this quarter is a testament to our commitment to our plan.'

Mihaylo added, 'I am very excited that we will shortly be rolling out the NetSapiens platform to our Crexendo customers. I am convinced that the NetSapiens video collaboration solutions and mobility solutions used for teleconferencing and telecommuting, are the best in the industry. In the new work from anywhere world, this will be a substantial benefit to the Crexendo customers. NetSapiens was recently spotlighted in Frost & Sullivan's UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) report as the third-party platform vendor with the fastest growth rate in the North American market, and the report ranks NetSapiens at number 4 in UCaaS seats in the North American market. Our combined company pro forma consolidated revenue for 2020 of $27.8 million nearly a 20% increase compared to $23.3 million for 2019, this strong growth demonstrates why this merger is a benefit for our shareholders. Additionally, the NetSapiens community will benefit from our combined years of experience which will be very helpful in continuing to improve the offerings of both organizations. We will, as a joint team, continue to operate the business effectively and efficiently. We carefully monitor how we spend shareholder money, but we will do what is necessary to make our soon to be combined company the best in the industry. I could not be more excited about our future.'

Doug Gaylor, President and Chief Operating Officer, stated, 'I am thrilled about our merger with NetSapiens! Our management teams continue to work together closely, and we will hit the ground running after the merger is completed. Our combined synergies, offerings and experiences will prove to be a substantial benefit to all of our customers and our shareholders. The combination of the talented resources from both organizations will make us a better and more complete Company to support over 1.7 million users. I share Steve's enthusiasm and look forward to the future.'

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 May 11, 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.
