Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I am pleased with the progress we are making, there were some good trends this quarter. We again have record backlog, which at this time I consider to be the key metric for gauging our future revenue. Our telecom sales continue to increase sequentially quarter over quarter; this last quarter is the best in our history. Our dealer channel substantially contributed to our results and continues to build good momentum. Our sales model is particularly attuned to selling to enterprise customers. Our sales and engineering integration when combined with our quick response time in crafting enterprise solutions has provided substantial benefits to larger customers. This has contributed to our growth and is something that I believe will continue to be a driving force in the success of our business."

Mihaylo added "We are watching expenses closely as demonstrated by our $1.2 M decrease in operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 when compared to the same period of the prior year. Our future profitability will however be determined by sales growth. In order to increase sales, we are working to improve our lead generation process and increasing our Partner Channel. I fully expect to see substantial progress in this integral component of our business. Our Board of Directors is looking at our cash position as it appears we will need additional funding prior to our achieving profitability. We will look at all appropriate sources of raising funds including as noted in our Form 10-Q disclosures, my commitment to certain levels of funding through December 31, 2016. I continue to believe in our future and I continue to believe that we are in the right space, with the right products and 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 November 3, 2015 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.
