SRAX Reports First Quarter 2017 Financial Results


LOS ANGELES, May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SRAX (Nasdaq: SRAX), an Internet advertising and technology platform company that provides tools to automate the digital advertising market, reported its first quarter 2017 results.

Social Reality. (SCRI) (PRNewsFoto/Social Reality, Inc.)

"Over the past year, we have expanded our offering, creating new high growth revenue streams like SRAX Reach, and established a leaner infrastructure. While not evident in our first quarter financial results due to our buy-side legacy business, we expect these strategic measures to generate growth and operating efficiencies beginning in the second quarter and increasing in the third quarter, as the legacy issues dissipate," stated SRAX's CEO and Chairman Christopher Miglino. "In late March, we right-sized our buy-side sales team and consolidated operations to our LA headquarters. Also, with our eye on the future of advertising technology, we began implementing our SRAX rebranding to reflect the breadth and depth that our platform offers marketers and content owners. To broaden our customer base and expand our product offerings to additional buy-side clients, we designed our tools to improve performance across all digital channels for brands in any vertical. We remain confident about growing our 2017 revenue to range between $45 million and $50 million. And with our cost management efforts, including our reorganization, we expect to dramatically improve profitability on an Adjusted EBITDA basis year-over-year."

First Quarter 2017 Financial Results:

  • Revenue was $5.3 million, compared to $5.5 million in the first quarter of 2016. This reflects the intentional decrease in revenue from a significant legacy, lower-margin customer partially offset by an increase in revenue from SRAX buy-side and sell-side clients as well as continuing growth in SRAXmd.
  • Gross profit was $2.0 million, compared to $2.3 million in the first quarter of 2016. Gross margin was 38%, compared to 42% in the first quarter of 2016, reflecting the impact of lower revenue and lower margin profile on the buy-side business.
  • Operating expenses were $5.3 million, including increased sales and marketing expenses as well as restructuring costs of $378,000 and the write-off of a non-compete agreement of $469,000.  This compares to $3.8 million in the first quarter of 2016, which did not have similar charges.
  • Other income included lower interest expense, greater amortization and the benefit of the accretion of put warrants issued during the company's January 2017 financing.
  • Net loss was $2.0 million, compared to $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $1.7 million, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $980,000 in the first quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and certain additional one-time expenses. It is not intended to represent a measure of performance in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). A detailed description and reconciliation of EBITDA and management's reasons for using this measure is set forth at the end of this press release.

In April, SRAX entered into definitive securities purchase agreements for the purchase and sale of 5,000,000 principal amount of 12.5% secured convertible debentures and five-year Series A warrants representing the right to acquire up to 833,337 shares of the company's Class A common stock.  As of May 3rd, SRAX received net proceeds of approximately $4.5 million from the financings.

Reaffirming 2017 Guidance

  • Management continues to expect 2017 revenue to be between $45 million and $50 million.
  • Management reiterates 2017 Adjusted EBITDA guidance to be between $2 million and
    $5 million.

Other Recent Corporate Highlights:

  • Unveiled the company's new "SRAX" branding, designed to reflect the breadth and depth of the company's tools offered to digital marketers and content owners.
  • Recognized in the recent adtech LUMAscape, which includes industry leaders in a competitive landscape graphic, authenticating the SRAX brand positioning.
  • Continued to build technical advantages by filing for a patent related to a SRAXmd unique product feature.

NON-GAAP TO GAAP RECONCILIATION
THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2017 AND 2016

Use of Non-GAAP Measure – Adjusted EBITDA

SRAX's management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various financial metrics. In addition to the company's GAAP results, management also considers the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income from operations before depreciation and amortization expenses, stock-based compensation and one time financing and transaction expense.  Management believes that this non-GAAP measure provides useful information about Social Reality's operating results. The tables below provide a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.  This non-GAAP measure should be considered a supplement to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
