SRAX (PRNewsfoto/SRAX)

"SRAX is leveraging our core technologies to develop platforms and build valuable and specific data sets," said Christopher Miglino, founder and CEO of SRAX. "Our platforms are gaining traction and creating synergies. In fact, sales from existing platforms grew 11% and 17%, for Q3 2019 compared to Q2 2019 and Q3 2018, respectively, and are already benefiting from advances in BIGtoken."

"BIGtoken is expanding in reach and scope.  As of today, we have a subscriber base of 16.3 million.  To broaden and accommodate our international subscriber base, we signed key partnerships in India and the Philippines; completed integration for international users; and started the process to offer BIGtoken in multiple languages. Now, we are implementing more initiatives to scale subscriber growth and launch additional offerings. After unveiling BIG Rewards™, some of the largest consumer packaged goods (CPG) brands in the world initiated programs to offer coupons, exclusive product deals and more. Upon introducing BIG Research to gather insights on behalf of large brands looking for global customer insights, we have signed deals with two of the largest research platforms. Additionally, after spending the past two quarters integrating our platforms and realigning the sales process, in Q4 2019, we expect to accelerate revenue growth driven by brands activating on our platforms to engage with consumers complemented by increased adoption of SRAX IR."

Non-GAAP Measures:
To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In addition, these measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. We compensate for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of our business, enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in operating our business. For more information on our non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures, please see the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results" table in this press release.

Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) less non-cash equity-based compensation and the accretion of warrants.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, changes in the fair-value of derivative and warrant liabilities and certain additional one-time charges.
