Haivision continues to increase gross margins and delivers 18.2%
MONTREAL, Sept. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - Haivision Systems Inc. ("Haivision" or the "Company") (TSX: HAI), a leading global provider of mission critical, real-time video networking and visual collaboration solutions, today announced its results for the third quarter ended July 31, 2023.
"As demonstrated by our year over year growth, we have been able to take advantage of significant synergistic revenue opportunities from our two recent acquisitions. This growth is even more impressive when you consider that we exited the managed services business in April 2023" said Mirko Wicha, Chairman and CEO of Haivision. "The demand for mission critical visual collaboration systems is robust demonstrated by significant wins and a solid pipeline, and we continue to see the opportunity globally for our 5G bonded cellular contribution transmitters."
Q3 2023 Financial Results
Financial Results for the nine months ended July 31, 2023
Key Company Highlights
"We have now completed our restructuring exercise and are well on our way to fully integrating the two recent acquisitions." said Dan Rabinowitz, Chief Financial Officer and EVP, Operations. "Although our third quarter financial performance still includes costs that will not be part of our fourth quarter cost structure, our Adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.4% in the period begins to demonstrate the overall earning potential of our business.
Revenue for the three months and nine months ended July 31, 2023 was $35.0 million and $104.1 million, respectively, an increase of $5.4 million or 18.2% and $16.4 million or 18.6%, when compared to the prior year comparative periods. As Aviwest was acquired in April of 2022, Haivision witnessed sound organic growth in the quarter from all segments of the business. . Gross Margins* for the three months and nine months ended July 31, 2023 were 71.9% and 69.1%, respectively compared to 66.1% and 69.0% for the prior year comparable periods. Gross Margins* were positively impacted by price increases initiated last year, decreases in the incremental costs of components procured during the world wide component shortage, and our decision to exit the managed services business which historically operated at lower gross margins.
Total expenses for the three months and nine months ended July 31, 2023 were $25.6 million and $74.4 million, respectively representing increases of $1.2 million and $9.1 million when compared to the prior year comparative periods. The increase in total expenses in the quarter is largely related to restructuring costs of $1.5 million in the period as we continue to squeeze synergies from the recent acquisitions. The total expenses for the nine-month period ended July 31st, not only includes the $1.5 million restructuring costs, but includes expenses related to the acquisition of Aviwest in April 2022, including incremental depreciation and amortization expenses of $2.3 million.
Net loss for the three months and nine months ended July 31, 2023 was $0.9 million and $3.8 million, respectively and represents improvements of $3.4 million and $1.3 million when compared to the prior year comparative periods, Adjusted EBITDA* for the three months and nine months ended July 31, 2023 was $4.3 million and $9.1 million, respectively, improvements of $5.9 million in each of the prior year comparative periods.

Financial Statements, Management's Discussion and Analysis and Additional Information
Haivision's unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements for the third quarter ended July 31, 2023 (the "Q3 Financial Statements"), the management's discussion and analysis thereon and additional information relating to Haivision and its business can be found under Haivision's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The financial information presented in this release was derived from the Q3 Financial Statements.
This release includes "forward-looking information" and "forward-looking statements" (collectively, "forward-looking statements") within the meaning of applicable securities laws, including, without limitation, statements regarding the Company's growth opportunities and its ability to execute on its growth strategy. In some cases, but not necessarily in all cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "plans", "targets", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "an opportunity exists", "is positioned", "estimates", "intends", "assumes", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate" or "believes", or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might", "will" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved". In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances contain forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts, nor guarantees or assurances of future performance but instead represent management's current beliefs, expectations, estimates and projections regarding future events and operating performance.
Forward-looking statements are necessarily based on opinions, assumptions and estimates that, while considered reasonable by Haivision as of the date of this release, are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ, possibly materially, from those indicated by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the risk factors identified under "Risk Factors" in the Company's latest annual information form, and in other periodic filings that the Company has made and may make in the future with the securities commissions or similar regulatory authorities in Canada, all of which are available under the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com. These factors are not intended to represent a complete list of the factors that could affect Haivision. However, such risk factors should be considered carefully. There can be no assurance that such estimates and assumptions will prove to be correct. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this release. Haivision undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, except as required by applicable securities laws.
Haivision's consolidated financial statements for the third quarter ended July 31, 2023 are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). This press release makes reference to certain non-IFRS measures, including "EBITDA", "Gross Margin", "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Adjusted EBITDA Margin". These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS, and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial information reported under IFRS. Rather, these non-IFRS measures are used to provide investors with supplemental measures of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures. We also believe that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures in the evaluation of issuers. Our management also uses non-IFRS measures to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, to prepare annual operating budgets and forecasts and to determine components of management compensation.
Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure used by management to assess the financial performance of our business. Adjusted EBITDA is also a key metric that management uses prior to execution of any strategic investing or financing opportunity. "EBITDA" is defined as earnings (loss) before income taxes, depreciation, amortization and financial expenses and "Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as EBITDA, as adjusted for stock-based compensation and certain non-recurring expense items. "Adjusted EBITDA Margin" represents Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. "Gross Margin" represents gross profit divided by revenue.
A reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net income (loss) is included in the tables at the end of this press release and in the Company's management discussion and analysis for the three months and nine months ended July 31, 2023.
