Closed January 2018 Series C Convertible Preferred Stock Offering

On January 25, 2018, the Company closed a registered direct offering of its 0% Series C Convertible Preferred Stock for net proceeds to the Company of $1.5 million (the “Series C Offering”).  The Company used $1.3 million of the net proceeds of the Series C Offering to retire all outstanding debt obligations and terminate the warrant with Super G Capital LLC in January 2018 (the “Super G Payoff”).  The Company also made a $0.2 million principal payment in January 2018 on its loan from Western Alliance Bank.  The Company’s balances of cash and outstanding debt as of January 31, 2018 were $3.6 million and $0.6 million, respectively.
“We are very pleased to have completed a series of financial transactions during the period from July 2017 through January 2018 that have significantly strengthened our balance sheet.  We successfully reduced our outstanding debt obligations from $11.5 million as of June 30, 2017 to $0.6 million as of January 31, 2018, while increasing our cash position from $1.1 million as of June 30, 2017 to $3.6 million as of January 31, 2018,” said Glowpoint CFO David Clark.

“2017 was a transformational year for Glowpoint.  We completed a complicated restructuring of our balance sheet culminated by our Series C equity round in January 2018 which now provides the company a foundation on which to pursue new market opportunities,” said Glowpoint President and CEO Peter Holst.  “Video, as both a product and service, continues to be integral to the broader business objective enabling our customers to effectively assess the value, deployment and management of virtualized workflow.  According to Wainhouse Research1, the 2016 UCaaS2 market was $6 billion, and is projected to grow to $14 billion in 2021, a 5 year CAGR of 18%.  UCaaS seats are projected to grow from 133 million in 2016 to 343 million in 2021, but only an estimated 18% were actively used for UC in 2016.  Given the growing market opportunity for end user adoption, the Company has made excellent progress in leveraging our core strengths in IT service management.  We are on target to release a subset of new services this summer, focused on automation and microlearning, to a select group of current and prospective enterprise customers who want to accelerate next generation UC technology diffusion.”

Full Year Financial Highlights

  • Revenue of $14.8 million, net income of $5.8 million, AEBITDA of $1.4 million, and cash flow from operations of $1.6 million.  AEBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure.  See “Non-GAAP Financial Information” later in this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure.   
  • Completed a recapitalization of the Company’s debt obligations on July 31, 2017 (the “Debt Recapitalization”), which resulted in: (i) the aggregate elimination of $11.6 million of total debt and accrued interest obligations owed by the Company to Main Street Capital Corporation and Shareholder Representative Services LLC and outstanding as of July 31, 2017; (ii) aggregate gross proceeds of $2.2 million from new debt obligations with Western Alliance Bank and Super G Capital LLC as of July 31, 2017, which proceeds were used to retire the Main Street loan and purchase shares of the Company’s common stock held by Main Street; (iii) use of $0.4 million of the Company’s cash and (iv) the reduction of outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock by a net amount of 404,587 shares.  The Company recorded a gain on debt extinguishment of $9.0 million during the year ended December 31, 2017 in connection with the Debt Recapitalization.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted EBITDA (“AEBITDA”), a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net income (loss) before depreciation, amortization, taxes, stock-based compensation and stock-based expense, impairment charges, and interest and other income (expense), net.  AEBITDA is not intended to replace operating income (loss), net income (loss), cash flow or other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  Rather, AEBITDA is an important measure used by management to assess the operating performance of the Company and is used in the calculation of financial covenants in the Company’s loan agreements.  AEBITDA as defined here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in accounting policies. Therefore, AEBITDA should be considered in conjunction with net income (loss) and other performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as operating income (loss) or cash flow from operating activities, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures, such as net income (loss), operating income (loss) or any other GAAP measure of liquidity or financial performance.   A reconciliation of AEBITDA to net income (loss) is shown in the attached schedules.
