Nature of Business and Basis of Presentation

SeaChange International, Inc. (“SeaChange,” the “Company”, "we" or similar terms), was incorporated under the laws of the state of Delaware on July 9, 1993. SeaChange is an industry leader in the delivery of multiscreen, advertising and premium over-the-top (“OTT”) video management solutions. The Company’s software products and services facilitate the aggregation, licensing, management and distribution of video and advertising content for service providers, telecommunications companies, satellite operators, broadcasters and other content providers. The Company enables service providers to offer other interactive television services that allow subscribers to receive personalized services and interact with their video devices, thereby enhancing their viewing experience. Further, the Company’s products provide customers an opportunity to insert advertising into broadcast and VOD content.

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The Company consolidates the financial statements of its wholly owned subsidiaries and all intercompany transactions and account balances have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by the Company in accordance with the instructions to Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to applicable rules and regulations, although the Company believes the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. In the opinion of the Company’s management, the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, which are normal and recurring in nature, necessary for a fair presentation. The year-end condensed consolidated balance sheet data as of January 31, 2022 was derived from our audited consolidated financial statements and may not include all disclosures required by GAAP. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire year. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2022, filed with the SEC on April 8, 2022 and as amended on May 26, 2022.


The Company had $14.5 million of available cash as of October 31, 2022, excluding $0.3 million of restricted cash.

The Company believes that existing cash and cash expected to be provided by future operating results will be adequate to satisfy its working capital, capital expenditure requirements and other contractual obligations for at least 12 months from the date of this filing.

If the Company’s expectations are incorrect, it may need to raise additional funds to fund its operations or take advantage of unanticipated strategic opportunities in order to strengthen its financial position. In the future, the Company may enter into other arrangements for potential investments in, or acquisitions of, complementary businesses, services or technologies, which could require it to seek additional equity or debt financing. If adequate funds are not available or are not available on acceptable terms, the Company may not be able to take advantage of market opportunities, to develop new products or to otherwise respond to competitive pressures.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020. In the first quarter of fiscal 2021, concerns related to the spread of COVID-19 created global business disruptions as well as disruptions in the Company’s operations and created potential negative impacts on its revenues and other financial results. However, the duration and intensity of the COVID-19 pandemic and any resulting disruption to the Company’s operations remains uncertain, and the Company will continue to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its business, financial condition, liquidity, and financial results.

The Company continues to conduct business with substantial modifications to employee travel, employee work locations, virtualization or cancellation of customer and employee events, and remote sales, implementation, and support activities, among other modifications. These decisions may delay or reduce sales and harm productivity and collaboration. The Company has observed other companies and governments making similar alterations to their normal business operations, and in general, the markets are experiencing a significant level of uncertainty at the current time. Virtualization of the SeaChange team’s sales activities could foreclose future business opportunities, particularly as its customers limit spending, which could negatively

impact the willingness of the Company’s customers to enter into or renew contracts. SeaChange continues to realize its on-going cost optimization efforts in response to the impact of the pandemic. The Company may take further actions that alter its business operations as the situation evolves.

Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard

On June 17, 2022, the Company received a deficiency letter from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that, for the last 30 consecutive business days, the closing bid price for the Company’s common stock has been below the minimum $1.00 per share required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Global Select Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”). The Nasdaq deficiency letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock, and its common stock will continue to trade on The Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol “SEAC” at this time.

In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been given 180 calendar days, or until December 14, 2022, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. If at any time before December 14, 2022, the bid price of the Company’s common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Staff will provide written confirmation that the Company has achieved compliance.

If the Company does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by December 14, 2022, the Company may be afforded a second 180 calendar day period to regain compliance. To qualify, the Company would be required to transfer to The Nasdaq Capital Market, to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market, except for the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. In addition, the Company would be required to notify Nasdaq of its intent to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period. Following a transfer to The Nasdaq Capital Market, the Company will be afforded the second 180 calendar day period to regain compliance, unless it does not appear to Nasdaq that it is possible for the Company to cure the deficiency. If the Company does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by the end of the compliance period (or the second compliance period, if applicable), the Company’s common stock will become subject to delisting. In the event that the Company receives notice that its common stock is being delisted, the Nasdaq Listing Rules permit the Company to appeal a delisting determination by the Staff to a hearings panel.

The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and may, if appropriate, consider available options to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, including initiating a reverse stock split. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement or will otherwise be in compliance with other Nasdaq Listing Rules. The Company filed an application to be listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market on December 6, 2022.

Termination of Merger Agreement

In December 2021, the Company and Triller Hold Co LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Triller”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (as amended, the “Merger Agreement”) pursuant to which Triller planned to merge with and into SeaChange, with the separate existence of Triller ceasing and SeaChange continuing as the surviving corporation (the “Merger”).

On June 13, 2022, SeaChange and Triller entered into a Termination Agreement and Release (the “Termination Agreement”) pursuant to which SeaChange and Triller mutually agreed to terminate the Merger Agreement. Each party bore its own costs and expenses in connection with the terminated transaction, and neither party paid a termination fee to the other in connection with the terminated transactions. The Termination Agreement also contains mutual releases, whereby each party released the other from any claims of liability relating to the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. The Termination Agreement and related documents are summarized in more detail in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on June 14, 2022. Transaction costs related to the Merger and charged to the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss amounted to less than $1.2 million for the nine months ended October 31, 2022.
