Management Commentary

"We saw a decline in revenue for the third quarter, largely due to softer industry demand," commented Michael Pope, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Looking forward to 2024, we are optimistic that we will return to revenue growth and deliver improved profitability."

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2023

Total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2023 were $49.7 million as compared to $68.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, resulting in a 27.7% decrease. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to lower sales volume across all markets.

Cost of revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2023 were $31.7 million as compared to $47.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, resulting in a 33.7% decrease. The decrease in cost of revenues was attributable to the decrease in units sold, along with lower manufacturing and shipping costs in the third quarter of 2023 compared to the prior year’s third quarter.

Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $18.0 million as compared to $21.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, resulting in a decrease of 14.3%. Gross profit margin increased to 36.3% for the three months September 30, 2023 and 30.6% for the three months ending September 30, 2022. The increase in gross profit margin is primarily related to the decrease in manufacturing and shipping costs noted above.

Total operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2023 were $29.6 million, accounting for 59.6% of revenues, as compared to $14.6 million and 21.2% of revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The increase in operating expenses was due to Goodwill impairment charges of $13.2 million recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2023. There were no impairment charges during 2022.

Other expense, net for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $3.0 million as compared to $2.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, representing an increase of $0.2 million. The increase in other expenses was primarily due to a $0.4 million increase in interest expense, partially offset by a $0.2 million change in the fair value of derivative liabilities.

Net loss was $17.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023. Net income was $3.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and was a result of the changes noted above.

The net loss attributable to common shareholders was $18.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023. Net income attributable to common shareholders was $2.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, after deducting fixed dividends paid to Series B preferred shareholders of $0.3 million in both years.

Total comprehensive loss was $20.6 million and $1.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The change reflects the effect of foreign currency translation adjustments on consolidation, with the net effect of a $2.9 million loss for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and a $5.0 million loss for the three months ended September 30, 2022.

Basic and diluted EPS for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $(1.90). Basic and diluted EPS for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $0.31 and $0.28, respectively.

EBITDA loss for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $9.4 million, as compared to $8.5 million EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $4.9 million, as compared to $9.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022. Adjustments to EBITDA included stock-based compensation expense, impairment of goodwill, gains/losses recognized upon the settlement of certain debt instruments, gains/losses from the remeasurement of derivative liabilities, and the effects of purchase accounting adjustments in connection with prior period acquisitions.

At September 30, 2023, Boxlight had $18.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, $61.4 million in working capital, $44.1 million in inventory, $180.4 million in total assets, $44.4 million in debt, net of debt issuance costs, $30.6 million in stockholders’ equity, 9.6 million common shares issued and outstanding, and 3.1 million preferred shares issued and outstanding.

Financial Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2023

Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 were $137.9 million as compared to $179.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, resulting in a 22.9% decrease. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to lower sales volume across all markets.

Cost of revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 were $86.9 million as compared to $128.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, resulting in a 32.4% decrease. The decrease in cost of revenues was attributable to the decrease in units sold, along with lower manufacturing and shipping costs in the first three quarters of 2023 compared to the first three quarters of the prior year.

Gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $51.0 million as compared to $50.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, an increase of 1.0%. The gross profit margin was 37.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 28.2% for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The increase in gross profit is primarily related to the decrease in manufacturing and shipping costs noted above.

Total operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 were $60.7 million as compared to $46.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The increase in operating expenses was due to goodwill impairment charges of $13.2 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2023. There were no impairment charges during 2022.

Other expense, net for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $8.4 million as compared to $5.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, representing an increase of $3.3 million. The increase was due to a $1.5 million decrease in the fair value of derivative liabilities, a $0.9 million increase in interest expense, and a gain of $0.9 million recognized upon the settlement of certain debt obligations during the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

The Company reported net loss of $21.5 million and $1.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, and was a result of the changes noted above.

Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $22.4 million and $2.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, after deducting fixed dividends paid to Series B preferred shareholders of approximately $1.0 million in both years.

Total comprehensive loss was $22 million and $13 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, reflecting the effect of cumulative foreign currency translation adjustments on consolidation, with the net effect year to date of $0.6 million and $11.4 million loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

Basic and diluted EPS for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $(2.39) per basic and diluted share, compared to $(0.32) per basic and diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

EBITDA loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $3.0 million, as compared to $12.9 million EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $13.7 million, as compared to $16.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional insight and allow for a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and decision-making surrounding pro forma operations, we supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, with EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures of earnings. EBITDA represents net income before income tax expense (benefit), interest expense, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA plus stock-based compensation, impairment of goodwill, the change in fair value of derivative liabilities, purchase accounting impact of inventory markup, fair value adjustments to deferred revenue, non-cash gains and losses associated with debt settlement. Our management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as financial measures to evaluate the profitability and efficiency of our business model. We use these non-GAAP financial measures to assess the strength of the underlying operations of our business. These adjustments, and the non-GAAP financial measures that are derived from them, provide supplemental information to analyze our operations between periods and over time. We find this especially useful when reviewing pro forma results of operations, which include large non-cash amortizations of intangible assets from acquisitions and stock-based compensation. Investors should consider our non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

We report our operating results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We have disclosed in the table below the results on a constant currency basis to facilitate period-to-period comparisons of our results without regard to the impact of fluctuating foreign currency exchange rates. The term foreign currency exchange rates refers to the exchange rates we use to translate our operating results into U.S. Dollars for all countries where the functional currency is not the U.S. Dollar. Because we are a global company, the foreign currency exchange rates used for translation may have a significant effect on our reported results. In general, our reported financial results are affected positively by a weaker U.S. Dollar and are affected negatively by a stronger U.S. Dollar as compared to the foreign currencies in which we conduct our business. References to our operating results on a constant-currency basis mean our operating results without the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

We believe disclosure of constant-currency results is helpful to investors because it facilitates period-to-period comparisons of our results by increasing the transparency of our underlying performance by excluding the impact of fluctuating foreign currency exchange rates. However, constant-currency results are non-U.S. GAAP financial measures and are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Constant-currency results have no standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP, are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Constant-currency results have limitations in their usefulness to investors and may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Discussion of the Effect of Constant Currency on Financial Condition

We calculate constant-currency amounts by translating local currency amounts in the current period at actual foreign exchange rates for the prior year period. Our constant-currency results do not eliminate the transaction currency impact of purchases and sales of products in a currency other than the functional currency.
