We have improved our tracking of expenses substantially and expenses for the year were fully in line with our expectations. If this trend continues, which we expect it will, that bodes very well for our reaching break even and profitability in the near future. Obviously reducing expenses is not enough and I am also very encouraged by our sales trends. Our year over year increase in both backlog and hosted telecommunications service has been steady and has been in line with our expectations. We fully expect to continue to increase revenue quarter over quarter. 

"Our solutions and phones are among the best in our industry. We effectively provide solutions for customers who need one phone, to customers who need thousands of phones. We have been particularly adept at working with large enterprise clients and crafting solutions that meet their needs, which we believe differentiates us in the industry and is one of the keys to our future growth."

Mihaylo continued "We just completed another successful CrexWorx conference. This is an opportunity for our dealer partners to work with our management and sales team to get in-depth training on the Crexendo suite of services. The conference allows us to show our latest innovations and how Crexendo's Ride the Cloud ™ solutions can save their customers substantial amounts of money and increase productivity, while providing industry leading products and services. In addition, we get to show our dealer partners that our compensation package is amongst the best in the industry. I am very encouraged as I meet and work with our dealer partners.

"I am convinced this channel will also continue to grow Q over Q, and assist our reaching profitability. Our customers continue to be very pleased with our services, solutions and people. Our renewal rates have been very gratifying and we rarely lose any customers over our service or products. We continue to add qualified inside sales personnel and members to our dealer program, which we expect will increase our direct and dealer partner sales. I believe the future of the Company is very good, I continue to be firmly convinced we are in the right space, with the right products, right services and the right people."

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, 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 March 1, 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.
