First Quarter Fiscal 2023 Financial Summary

  • Revenue increased 9% year-over-year and 2% sequentially to $97.1 million, which was above the high-end of guidance

  • Backlog at quarter end was $46.8 million, primarily reflecting the timing of large orders, and subsequently increased to $67.2 million as of July 31, 2022

  • Active subscription customers grew to over 450, an increase of more than 200% year-over-year and 29% sequentially

  • GAAP net loss was $10.6 million, or ($0.13) per share; adjusted non-GAAP net loss was $3.6 million, or ($0.04) per share

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $0.3 million

"Revenue was above the high-end of our guidance at $97.1 million, primarily driven by continued robust demand from our hyperscale customers and significant growth in our video surveillance business," stated Jamie Lerner, Chairman and CEO of Quantum. "With all of Quantum's products now available as a software offering, we continue to secure a growing number of subscription-based customers that reached over 450 in the quarter, representing the fifth consecutive sequential increase. As further evidence of our ongoing progress to drive recurring revenue, subscription software ARR expanded 11% sequentially to $8.2 million.

"During the quarter, we realized the initial benefits from our enhanced supply chain strategies and cost reduction initiatives, as demonstrated by our better than expected revenue results. Following a series of cost reductions we implemented in June, operating expenses decreased by $0.6 million sequentially with a more significant reduction of $1.5 to $2.0 million per quarter expected in the second half of fiscal 2023.

"In summary, we have and continue to take the necessary steps to improve the Company's financial profile and future operating performance. Looking ahead to the coming quarter and year, we are committed to disciplined execution on our initiatives aimed at driving top-line growth as well as increased operational efficiency and margin expansion, which together we expect to contribute to higher adjusted EBITDA and earnings."

First Quarter Fiscal 2023 vs. Prior Quarter

Revenue for the first quarter fiscal 2023 was $97.1 million compared to $95.2 million in the prior quarter. Gross profit in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 was $34.0 million, or 35% of revenue, compared to $36.2 million, or 38% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022. First quarter fiscal 2023 gross margin reflected an anticipated peak in purchase price variance driven from constraints in the supply chain combined with revenue mix that was more heavily weighted towards hyperscale customers. Assuming no meaningful deterioration in the overall market environment or supply chain dynamics, the Company believes gross margin in the first quarter represents a low-point from which margins will improve during the fiscal year.

Total GAAP operating expenses in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 decreased to $41.1 million, or 42% of revenue, compared to $41.8 million, or 44% of revenue, in the prior quarter. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $28.3 million in the quarter, flat compared to the fourth fiscal quarter 2022. Research and development expenses were $12.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to $13.5 million in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP operating expenses in the first quarter of 2023 decreased to $36.3 million from $37.2 million in the prior quarter.

GAAP net loss in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 was $10.6 million, or ($0.13) per share, compared to a net loss of $7.8 million, or ($0.13) per share, in the fourth fiscal quarter 2022. Excluding stock compensation, restructuring charges and other non-recurring costs, non-GAAP adjusted loss in the first fiscal quarter of 2023 was $3.6 million, or ($0.04) per share, compared to adjusted net loss of $2.8 million, or ($0.05) per share, in the prior quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 was $0.3 million, compared to $0.4 million in the prior quarter.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

  • Cash and cash equivalents including restricted cash was $26.8 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to $5.5 million as of March 31, 2022.

  • During the quarter, the Company used proceeds from its completed Rights Offering to pay down $20.0 million of outstanding long-term debt. A portion of the proceeds were also used to fund working capital needs, which included a primarily seasonality driven decrease in deferred revenue of $13.6 million.

  • Outstanding term loan debt was $78.4 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to $98.7 million as of March 31, 2022. Outstanding borrowings on the Company's revolving credit facility were $17.3 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to $17.7 million as of March 31, 2022.

  • Total interest expense in the first quarter 2023 was $2.1 million compared to $2.5 million in the prior quarter and $3.9 million during the same quarter a year ago.

Outlook

Based on currently committed supply, the Company expects the following guidance range for the second fiscal quarter of 2023:

  • Revenues of $95 million, plus or minus $4 million

  • Non-GAAP adjusted net loss of ($1.5 million), plus or minus $1 million

  • Non-GAAP adjusted net loss per share of ($0.02), plus or minus $0.01

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $2.5 million, plus or minus $1 million

NON-U.S. GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, we have presented Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (Loss), non-U.S. GAAP financial measures defined below.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure defined by us as net loss before interest expense, net, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges, and other non-recurring expenses.

"GAAP net loss" as referred to in this press release represents "Net loss attributable to common stockholders". Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure defined by us as net loss before restructuring charges, stock-based compensation expense, and other non-recurring (income) expenses. The Company calculates Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Basic and Diluted share using the Company's above-referenced definition of Adjusted Net Income (Loss).

We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) to Net Income (Loss), the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure. We have presented Adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management and the board of directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short and long-term operating plans. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the amounts eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business performance. We believe Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) per Basic and Diluted Share serve as appropriate measures to be used in evaluating the performance of our business and help our investors better compare our operating performance over multiple periods. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and our board of directors.

Our use of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are as follows:

  • Although depreciation and amortization expense are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: (1) interest and tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; (2) capital expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (3) changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; (4) the potentially dilutive impact of stock-based compensation expense; (5) potential future costs related to our long-term debt; (6) potential future restructuring expenses; (7) potential future costs related to business acquisitions; (8) gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, (9) and acquisition-related amortization of intangibles assets from business combinations, or (10) deemed dividend related to warrants.

  • Adjusted Net Income (Loss) does not reflect: (1) potential future restructuring activities; (2) the potentially dilutive impact of stock-based compensation expense; (3) potential future costs related to our long-term debt; (4) potential future costs related to business acquisitions; (5) gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, (6) acquisition-related amortization of intangibles assets from business combinations, or (7) deemed dividend related to warrants.

Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) or similarly titled measures differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these and other limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) along with other U.S. GAAP-based financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics and our U.S. GAAP financial results.
