SRAX Reports $19.3 million in Net Income and $1.91 EPS for Third Quarter 2018


LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Social Reality, Inc. (Nasdaq: SRAX), a digital marketing and consumer data management and distribution technology platform company, reported results for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and provided guidance for 2019.

SRAX (PRNewsfoto/SRAX)

"SRAX solves data challenges for all actors in the digital advertising ecosystem by building valuable verticals around specific data sets," stated SRAX's CEO and Chairman Christopher Miglino. "During the third quarter, through the sale of our healthcare vertical, we delivered proof of concept of our strategy to build, optimize and monetize digital marketing around three integrated areas of focus: industry data verticals, social media data and BIGtoken and our consumer data product.  

"Today, we believe our industry verticals and social media solutions have substantial value. To capture the tremendous opportunity these assets have, we are investing in development and sales expansion. Year to date, we have launched several new products and increased our sales team from six at the beginning of the year to 22, the majority of whom are dedicated to SRAX solutions.

"Data accuracy is the largest area of uncertainty for marketers, and we are delivering a solution that is good for both the marketer and the consumer. Our consumer-powered data management and distribution system, BIGtoken, is positioned to revolutionize advertising by offering consumers choice, transparency and compensation for their data. By gathering information directly from the source, conducting multi-layer verification and providing data security, BIGtoken can solve data accuracy challenges the market faces. We have entered open beta, hired a VP of business development to help evangelize the system, and are excited about driving BIGtoken user growth.

"Overall, we expect to deliver significant revenue growth in 2019 and are confident about achieving our projected goals," concluded Miglino.

SOCIAL REALITY, INC.
NON-GAAP TO GAAP RECONCILIATION
THREE AND NINE MONTH PERIODS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2018
(Unaudited)

Social Reality'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.
