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 (“U.S.”) (“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, 2023 was derived from our audited consolidated financial statements and may not include all disclosures required by GAAP. The results of operations for the three months ended April 30, 2023 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, 2023, filed with the SEC on April 17, 2023.


As of April 30, 2023, the Company had $13.8 million of available cash and cash equivalents and $1.4 million of marketable securities, excluding $0.3 million of restricted cash.

The Company believes that existing cash and cash equivalents, marketable securities 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 us 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.

Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard and Reverse Stock Split

On June 17, 2022, the Company received notification from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Company did not comply with the minimum $1.00 bid price requirement for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq (the “Bid Price Requirement”). In accordance with Nasdaq listing rules, the Company was afforded 180 calendar days (until December 14, 2022) to regain compliance with the Bid Price Requirement. On December 15, 2022, the Company received written notice from Nasdaq stating that, although the Company had not regained compliance with the Bid Price Requirement by December 14, 2022, in accordance with Nasdaq listing rules, the Company is eligible for an additional 180 calendar day period, or until June 12, 2023 (the “Extended Compliance Date”), to regain compliance with the Bid Price Requirement. Nasdaq’s determination was based on, among other things, (1) the Company’s written notice of its intention to transfer to The Nasdaq Capital Market (the “Capital Market”) (as issuers on The Nasdaq Global Select Market (the “Global Select Market”) are not eligible for an additional 180-day compliance

period) and to cure the deficiency by the Extended Compliance Date by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary, and (2) the Company meeting the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing requirements for the Capital Market, with the exception of the Bid Price Requirement. On December 15, 2022, Nasdaq approved the Company’s transfer from the Global Select Market to the Capital Market, a continuous trading market that operates in substantially the same manner as the Global Select Market.

In an effort to regain compliance with the Bid Price Requirement, on April 6, 2023, the Company's board of directors (the “Board”) approved a discretionary reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock in the range of 1-for‑15 shares and 1‑for-25 shares (the “Reverse Stock Split”), subject to stockholder approval at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders held on May 19, 2023 (the “Annual Meeting”). At the Annual Meeting, the stockholders approved the Reverse Stock Split at a ratio in the range of 1-for-15 to 1-for-25, with such ratio to be determined at the discretion of the Board. On May 19, 2023, the Board approved a reverse stock split of 1-for-20 to also be effective as of May 19, 2023. As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every 20 shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock was automatically combined into one issued and outstanding share of common stock, without any change in the par value per share. No fractional shares were issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, any fractional shares of Common Stock that would have otherwise resulted from the Reverse Stock Split were rounded up to the nearest whole share. The Certificate of Amendment did not amend the number of authorized shares of common stock, which remained unchanged at 100,000,000 shares. The common stock began trading on a post-split basis on Nasdaq as of the open of trading on May 23, 2023.

Proportionate adjustments were made to the exercise price and number of shares issuable upon the exercise of the options outstanding under the Company’s equity incentive plans, and the number of shares subject to restricted stock units (“RSUs”), deferred stock units (“DSUs”) and performance stock units (“PSUs”) under the Company’s equity incentive plans.

All references to common stock, equity-based common stock awards and all share and per share data contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Form 10-Q”) have been adjusted to reflect the Reverse Stock Split unless explicitly stated otherwise.

From the May 23, 2023 date that the Company's common stock began trading on a post-split basis on Nasdaq, the Company has maintained a minimum bid price of $1.00 per common share in excess of 10 consecutive business days as required under the Bid Price Requirement, and, on June 7, 2023, Nasdaq notified the Company that it had regained compliance with the Bid Price Requirement.

Merger Agreement and Subsequent Termination

In December 2021, the Company and Triller Hold Co LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Triller”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (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.

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.
