Management Commentary
“Our fiscal Q3 financial and operational results represented a continuation in executing our strategy of becoming a platform that combines financial performance with state-of-the art video streaming and ad tech assets to create organic and strategic growth opportunities,” said SeaChange’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Peter D. Aquino. “We generated another quarter of strong results highlighted by sequential and year-over-year revenue growth, while our gross margins expanded and non-GAAP operating costs were relatively stable compared to the prior year period. Taken together, we generated non-GAAP net income for the second consecutive quarter, demonstrating the financial health of our business. Operationally, we believe our team is continuing to build momentum by securing major new customers like Fox Sports Mexico as we look to build on our SaaS-based recurring revenue streams, while growing and deepening our customer engagements.”

Non-GAAP Measures

We define non-GAAP income (loss) from operations as U.S. GAAP net loss plus stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, severance and restructuring costs, transaction costs, loss on impairment of goodwill, other expense, net, and income tax provision. We discuss non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, including on a per share basis, in our quarterly earnings releases and certain other communications, as we believe non-GAAP operating loss from operations is an important measure that is not calculated according to U.S. GAAP. We use non-GAAP income (loss) from operations in internal forecasts and models when establishing internal operating budgets, supplementing the financial results and forecasts reported to our Board of Directors, determining a component of bonus compensation for executive officers and other key employees based on operating performance, and evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in our operations. We believe that the non-GAAP income (loss) from operations financial measure assists in providing an enhanced understanding of our underlying operational measures to manage the business, to evaluate performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace, and to establish operational goals. We believe that the non-GAAP financial adjustments are useful to investors because they allow investors to evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in our financial and operational decision-making.

Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with U.S. GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. We expect to continue to incur expenses similar to the financial adjustments described above in arriving at non-GAAP income (loss) from operations and investors should not infer from our presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. The following table includes the reconciliations of our U.S. GAAP loss from operations, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, to our non-GAAP income (loss) from operations for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2022.
