Oblong Announces Financial Results for Third Quarter 2021

Oblong Announces Financial Results for Third Quarter 2021

Management to Conduct Conference Call Today at 4:30 p.m. ET

Oblong, Inc. (Nasdaq: OBLG) (“Oblong” or the “Company”), the award-winning maker of multi-stream collaboration solutions, today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2021.

Q3 2021 and Recent Operational Highlights

  • Achieved key benchmarks in the development of our next generation hybrid collaboration cloud offering
  • Expanded our leadership team making key hires in Engineering, Product Design, Sales, and Marketing
  • In August 2021, appointed executive thought leaders and strategists Matt Blumberg and Debby Meredith to the Company's board of directors.

Pete Holst, Chairman and CEO of Oblong, commented, “With market conditions remaining unpredictable in the near term for the use of commercial office environments, our focus during the third quarter was centered on recruiting and building our team in product development, engineering and distribution while making key advances in the development of our next gen multi-share hybrid collaboration cloud offering. As CIOs and Corporate Real Estate leaders evaluate how best to redesign their spaces to maximize collaboration and engagement of a growing hybrid workforce, we have been working with our many design and IT partners to help shape the vision of how technology should be used to optimize employee time both in, and out of the office. While revenue associated with our current products remains closely correlated to office re-openings, our focus on creating services accessible from physical and virtual spaces remain at the forefront of our mission. We believe the steps we are taking in the second half of 2021 will pay dividends in 2022 as offices gradually re-open and remote employees expect new, and far more engaging digital experiences.”

Q3 2021 Financial Highlights

The Company reported the following financial results for the third quarter of 2021:

  • As of September 30, 2021, total cash balance was $10.8 million and the Company has no debt.
  • During the third quarter of 2021, the Company’s $2.4 million PPP Loan was entirely forgiven by the SBA. This forgiveness was recorded as other income in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Third quarter 2021 total revenue of $1.8 million, as compared to $2.0 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $3.3 million for the third quarter of 2020.
  • Net loss of $0.7 million for the third quarter of 2021, as compared to net loss of $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (“AEBITDA”) loss of $1.7 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to an AEBITDA loss of $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2020. AEBITDA loss is a non-GAAP financial measure. See “Non-GAAP Financial Information” below for additional information regarding this non-GAAP financial measure, and “GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation” for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net loss.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted EBITDA (“AEBITDA”) loss, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net loss before depreciation and amortization, stock-based expense, impairment charges, severance, income tax expense, and interest and other expense, net. AEBITDA loss is not intended to replace operating loss, net loss, cash flow or other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Rather, AEBITDA loss is an important measure used by management to assess the operating performance of the Company and to compare such performance between periods. AEBITDA loss as defined here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in accounting policies. Therefore, AEBITDA loss should be considered in conjunction with net loss and other performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as operating loss or cash flow used in operating activities, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures, such as net loss, operating loss or any other GAAP measure of liquidity or financial performance. A GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation of net loss to AEBITDA loss is shown under “GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation” later in this release.
