Manchester, NH - (NewMediaWire) - November 10, 2022 - Minim, Inc. (Nasdaq: MINM), the creator of innovative internet access products under the globally-recognized Motorola® brand, today reported third quarter financial results for the period ended September 30, 2022.
Q3 2022 Financial Updates:
● Net revenue of $13.8 million, up 7.5% sequentially compared to $12.9 million in Q2 2022.
● Gross margin of 22.3% (~25.9% before inventory reserves) compared to 19.7% (30.2% before inventory costing errors) in Q2 2022.
● Net loss of $4.1 million compared to a net loss of $4.4 million ($3.1 million net loss before inventory costing errors) in Q2 2022.
● Strengthened balance sheet with 11.7% reduction in inventories and 38.9% reduction in accounts payable.
Recent Business Highlights
● Expanded e-commerce offering at Target.com to include a new category from our offerings, the WiFi 6 Mesh System
● Achieved new milestone as the moto sync app powered by Minim, the company’s cloud-managed solution, is active on over 100,000 Minim Intelligent Networks (MINs)
● Recognized as a finalist in the Outstanding Use Case: Customer Experience category of the 2022 Leading Lights, an award highlighting communications technologies or networks that deliver a superior customer experience
● Announced planned exit of ISP business by Q4 2023 to better align resources with new paid-subscription revenue initiatives
Mehul Patel, Chief Executive Officer of Minim, said, “We are continuing to take actions that better align our resources and efforts with initiatives that will grow the lifetime value of our customers, increase points of distribution and strengthen our balance sheet. In October, we announced plans to focus on new paid-subscription initiatives that will provide an additional revenue stream following the wind-down of our ISP business in 2023.”
Patel continued, “Third quarter revenues were up 7.5% sequentially, boosted by Amazon Prime Day in October. We expect some consumers delayed purchases ahead of the holiday shopping season as challenging economic conditions persist. Importantly, third quarter adjusted EBITDA loss improved by $233,000 sequentially as a result of higher gross profits on increased revenues, and we strengthened our balance sheet with tighter management of working capital.”
Patel concluded, “Our debt position remains relatively flat as we manage our working capital through inventory conversions and reductions in accounts payable. Inventory at the end of the third quarter was $4 million lower than the prior quarter, and we have a line of sight for further reductions in the fourth quarter. We reduced accounts payable by nearly 40% sequentially to $6.9 million and expect to drive this down even further to a range of $4 million to $5 million.”
Net revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $13.8 million, a decrease of 8.0% compared to $15.0 million in the third quarter of 2021. Sequentially, revenue increased 7.5% compared to net revenue of $12.9 million in the second quarter of 2022.
Net loss in the third quarter of 2022 was $4.1 million, or ($0.09) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net income of $1.7 million, including a one-time gain on trademark sale for $4.0M, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share in the third quarter of 2021. Sequentially, this compares to a net loss of $4.4 million, or ($0.10) per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2022.
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2022 was ($3.2) million when adjusted for $0.2 million in stock-based compensation expense, $0.2 million of revenue bookings, and $0.2 million of severance, a $1.8 million year-over-year decrease compared to ($1.4) million in the third quarter of 2021. On a quarter-over-quarter basis, this represents a $0.2 million improvement compared to ($3.4) million in the second quarter of 2022.
At the end of Q3 2022, the company had $1.9 million of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash compared to $4.8 million at the end of Q2 2022. Heading into year end, Minim expects its cash balance to be +/- $0.5M from September ending cash balance.
The company had $0.5 million in availability for borrowing under its credit facility, which has $5.8 million drawn at September 30, 2022.
Deferred revenue as of September 30, 2022 was $1.3 million compared with $1.1 million as of June 30, 2022.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), this news release contains the non-GAAP financial measures Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as GAAP net income (loss) plus depreciation of fixed assets and amortization of intangible assets, other (expense) income, net, income tax provision, material one-time expenses and income, and stock-based compensation expenses, and Revenue Bookings, which we define as GAAP Revenue, which was $13.8 million for Q3 2022, plus the change in deferred revenue recorded within the financial reporting period being disclosed, which amounted to $0.2 million for Q3 2022.
We use these non-GAAP financial measures in internal forecasts and models when establishing internal operating budgets, supplementing the financial results and forecasts reported to our Board of Directors, and evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in our operations. We believe that these measures provide 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.
Minim believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are also useful to investors and analysts in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis. These supplemental financial measures exclude costs incurred and related to the merger with Cadence Connectivity, Inc. as the company deems these costs as one-time in nature.
These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. These financial measures 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 and investors should not infer from our presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
