Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We continue to make steady progress. During Q1 2016 we continued to increase revenue, increase backlog and lower expenses as compared to Q1 2015. We are planning to automate more processes, which we expect will further reduce expenses going forward. We are fully committed to increasing sales and continuing to grow our Direct Sales Channel and Dealer Partner Sales Channel. We are tracking to reach cash flow breakeven late this year and GAAP profitability in the first half of next year. We are diligently working to meet these goals."

Mihaylo added, "We continue to do an excellent job with enterprise customers. As I have discussed, our integrated processes are particularly attuned to working with enterprise customers and finding solutions for their specific needs. Our solutions are very effective for small, medium and enterprise customers. Our business continues to mature and a step in that maturation process is our announcement that we have opened up our platform to allow customers to migrate their Polycom telephones to our system. Opening up our system to the largest provider of cloud phones allows us to expand the reach of our award winning solutions to businesses that currently have an investment in Polycom phones. We now support Crexendo, Polycom, and Yealink telephones.

"We have also added two new Crexendo branded phones which are feature rich and competitively priced. We continue to expand our reach to more potential customers, which should result in additional sales. I know our solutions should allow these business customers to save substantial amounts of money and increase their productivity. Our management team is now fully prepared to embrace the tremendous market opportunity we see ahead for the company. I am convinced we will continue to grow revenue organically, and we are continuing to review strategic accretive partnerships and acquisitions. I believe the future for Crexendo is very good."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To evaluate our business, we consider and use non-generally accepted accounting principles (Non-GAAP) net income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of operating performance. These measures include the same adjustments that management takes into account when it reviews and assesses operating performance on a period-to-period basis. We consider Non-GAAP net income (loss) to be an important indicator of overall business performance because it allows us to evaluate results without the effects of share-based compensation, rent expense paid with common stock, interest expense paid with common stock, and amortization of intangibles. We define EBITDA as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) before interest income, interest expense, other income and expense, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. We believe EBITDA provides a useful metric to investors to compare us with other companies within our industry and across industries. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted for share-based compensation, and rent expense paid with stock. We use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to review and assess operating performance. We also believe use of Adjusted EBITDA facilitates investors' use of operating performance comparisons from period to period, as well as across companies.

In our May 3, 2016 earnings press release, as furnished on Form 8-K, we included Non-GAAP net loss, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The terms Non-GAAP net loss, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA are not defined under U.S. GAAP, and are not measures of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, Non-GAAP net loss, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for net loss or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations include, but are not limited to:

  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • they do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt that we may incur;
  • they do not reflect income taxes or the cash requirements for any tax payments;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will be replaced sometime in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • while share-based compensation is a component of operating expense, the impact on our financial statements compared to other companies can vary significantly due to such factors as the assumed life of the options and the assumed volatility of our common stock; and
  • other companies may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and using Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental support for management's analysis of business performance. Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are calculated as follows for the periods presented.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In accordance with the requirements of Regulation G issued by the SEC, we are presenting the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures and reconciling the unaudited Non-GAAP financial metrics to the comparable U.S. GAAP measures.
