Crexendo Reports First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - May 5, 2015) - Crexendo, Inc. (OTCQX: CXDO), a hosted services company that provides hosted telecommunications services, hosted website services, website development software and broadband internet services for businesses and entrepreneurs, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Financial highlights for the 2015 first quarter

Consolidated revenue for the first quarter of 2015 decreased 11% to $1.9 million compared to $2.1 million for the first quarter of 2014.

Crexendo's Hosted Telecommunications Services Segment revenue for the first quarter of 2015 increased 39% to $1.3 million compared to $955,000 for the first quarter of 2014.

Crexendo's Web Services Segment revenue for the first quarter of 2015 decreased 53% to $528,000, compared to $1.1 million for the first quarter of 2014. Revenue from our Web Services Segment declined as anticipated due to our strategic decision to limit our provision of web services to our enterprise sized customers and the reduction in our outstanding extended payment term arrangements (EPTAs), which are recognized as revenue upon collection.

Consolidated operating expenses for the first quarter of 2015 decreased 14% to $3.2 million compared to $3.7 million for the first quarter of 2014.

On a GAAP basis, the Company reported a $(1.2) million net loss for the first quarter of 2015, or a $(0.09) loss per diluted common share, compared to a net loss of $(1.6) million or a $(0.15) loss per diluted common share for the fourth quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP net loss was $(676,000) for the first quarter of 2015, or a $(0.05) loss per diluted common share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $(1.4) million or a $(0.13) loss per diluted common share for the first quarter of 2014.

EBITDA for the first quarter of 2015 was $(1.3) million compared to $(1.4) million for the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2015 was $(860,000) compared to $(1.3) million for the first quarter of 2014.

Total cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, as of March 31, 2015 was $2.2 million compared to $4.3 million as of March 31, 2014. 

Cash used for operations for the first quarter of 2015 was $(756,000) compared to $(1.3) million for the first quarter of 2014. Cash used for investing activities for the first quarter of 2015 was $(4,000) compared to cash provided by investing activities of $2.0 million for the first quarter of 2014. Cash used for financing activities was $(61,000) for the first quarter of 2015 compared to cash provided by financing activities of $23,000 for the first quarter of 2014.

Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer commented, "Our results this quarter are in line with my expectations. We have grown our backlog over Q4 of last year and I believe that is the best way to gauge our future growth. Web revenues have not fully leveled off as they continue to decrease as expected, which is the primary reason there was not actual revenue growth this quarter from fourth quarter of 2014. Our telecom segment revenues were down slightly quarter over quarter but that was due to larger equipment sales in the fourth quarter of 2014. The increase in our backlog shows that our telecom services sales are growing. We continue to manage our expenses effectively; and we do this while upgrading our service offerings and providing world class customer service."

Mihaylo continued, "We continue to be pleased with results from our partner channel. We are adding partners on a regular basis and I have full expectation that sales from our dealer partner channel will continue to grow. We have, as we discussed previously, added inside sales personnel and we expect to see a continual increase related to our sales force. We are very pleased that most our customers whose contracts have expired have renewed with us; sticky customers are important to our growth. I also believe the fact that customers continue to use the Crexendo services prove our product and services are the top in the industry and make good business sense to our customers. We are still finishing development and roll out of our new Crexendo end points; we have received rave reviews on our design and functionality. When we begin selling these new phones, we believe that this will be a big value add to our customers and will increase our margins. We are also starting to look at accretive customer acquisitions and strategic acquisitions. I am convinced that we will continue to grow our business and that we will continue toward cash flow break even and profitability shortly after that."

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 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.
