Financial Update:

  • Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $7.2 million, compared to $4.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
  • Gross margins were 52% of revenue in the first quarter of 2022 compared to 46% of revenue for the first quarter of 2021.
  • In the first quarter of 2022, net loss attributable to common shareholders was $2.8 million, or $(0.06) per share, compared to net loss of $2.7 million, or $(0.07) per share for the first quarter of 2021.
  • EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes depreciation and amortization) for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was negative $1.3 million compared to negative $2.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
  • Ended the first quarter of 2022 with $31 million in cash, compared to $36.2 million at December 31, 2021.

“We are pleased to report that revenues in the first quarter of 2022 were 75% higher than in the previous year,” said Carleton Miller, CEO of Vislink. “We successfully launched new products and solutions that are already generating opportunities for us to close new business. This included AeroLink—the first commercially available COFDM/5G/Mesh aerial downlink solution—that was designed for both law enforcement video surveillance and live news and sports applications. We also released Stellar Cam, part of our award-winning AI-automated solution that allows organizations to profitably cover more live events, create and stream more content and expand viewing audiences. We also made significant enhancements and tighter integrations to our existing live production offerings, allowing us to release a scene-to-screen unified-workflow solution for capturing and managing live content. These new launches drove strong increase in quoting activity and led to a 40% gain in bookings in our live production markets.”

He continued, “As a result of the above, we are excited that we can now offer a wider set of video communications solutions than we ever have previously, and can solve almost any business challenge faced by organizations in the sectors we operate in. We are confident that the above will lead to expanding opportunities for us capture wider swaths of business in the coming quarters, allowing us to reach and maintain profitable growth.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measure: EBITDA

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), we are presenting EBITDA in this earning release and the related earning conference call. EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. We define EBITDA as our net income (loss), excluding the impact of depreciation and amortization expense and interest income (expense). We have presented EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance, to establish budgets and to develop operational goals for managing our business. In particular, we believe that excluding the impact of these expenses in calculating EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core operating performance.
