Management Commentary

“During the fiscal first quarter, we successfully completed the initial phase of our strategic roadmap, which has optimized our operations, solidified our financial foundation, and positioned us to drive scale, capture market share and create even greater value for both our customers and shareholders,” said Robert Pons, SeaChange’s Executive Chairman. “The initial phase of our plan involved refining our growth strategy and technology positioning to capitalize on the explosive growth in video streaming, a market that industry analysts expect to surpass $140 billion in annual revenues by 2026. SeaChange’s turnkey enablement platform and advertising insertion technology provides us with a distinct competitive advantage and gives us confidence in our ability to capitalize on streaming industry growth. We are actively marketing our OTT Streaming Platform to cable operators and content owners globally, including film and TV producers, who are looking to launch their own streaming channels and platforms. A major part of our success is expected to come through strategic partners who recognize the value of SeaChange’s ‘full stack’ streaming enablement platform to seamlessly launch a new streaming service.

“SeaChange sits at the epicenter of the video industry’s transformation to OTT video streaming services and delivery to the billions of end users globally. Our favorable competitive positioning, robust market dynamics, and performance thus far gives us confidence that fiscal 2022 will be a year of growth and transformation. Longer term, we expect that the successful execution of our strategic roadmap will translate to sustainable growth and consistent profitability in the years ahead.”

Non-GAAP Measures
We define non-GAAP loss from operations as U.S. GAAP net loss plus stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, severance and other restructuring costs, other expense, net, and income tax (benefit) provision. We discuss non-GAAP 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 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 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 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 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 loss from operations for the three months ended April 30, 2021.
