Management Commentary

“Our progress during the third quarter was the most significant in our history, and we are one step closer to our vision of market leadership,” commented Michael Pope, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “During the quarter, we closed on fundraising of over $60 million in debt and equity, acquired Sahara Presentation Systems – a leading provider of interactive solutions with significant penetration in the EMEA region, augmented our sales leadership, formalized our partnership with Samsung, and steadied our balance sheet with a proper inventory profile and significant working capital.


Although sales and gross profit lagged our expectations in Q3 due to several factors including the effects of COVID-19, we are seeing increased demand in the fourth quarter and expect to generate greater than $27 million in revenue and positive Adjusted EBITDA.

We are committed to a tremendous fourth quarter and FY 2021, and we have a renewed focus on strong revenue growth, improving gross margins and positive earnings.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Boxlight’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Boxlight provides EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of its performance.

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, 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, the change in fair value of derivative liabilities, purchase accounting impact of inventory markup, and non- cash 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 access 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.
