Closed October 2017 Series B Convertible Preferred Stock Offering

On October 24, 2017, the Company closed a registered direct offering of 2,800 shares of Series B convertible preferred stock for total gross proceeds to the Company of $2,800,000. The shares of Series B convertible preferred stock were sold at a price equal to their stated value of $1,000 per share and are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.28 per share (the “Series B Offering”).

  • The Company’s pro forma cash, working capital and stockholders’ equity as of September 30, 2017, when including the net proceeds of the Series B Offering, were $3.8 million, $3.0 million and $12.3 million, respectively.

“We are pleased to have significantly strengthened our balance sheet by completing both the recapitalization of our debt in July and then closing a preferred stock offering for gross proceeds of $2.8 million in October,” said Glowpoint CFO David Clark.

“The market for all forms of conferencing and collaboration is rapidly evolving. While demand for remote access to colleagues, clients and partners is clearly increasing, the means by which we do so is expanding and more diverse than ever,” said Glowpoint President and CEO Peter Holst. “With a strengthened balance sheet, the Company is now developing new services that extend its mastery of video conferencing into a broader support platform with the goal of accelerating end user adoption of UC1 applications. According to Wainhouse Research2, the 2016 UCaaS3 market was $6 billion, and is projected to grow to $14 billion in 2021 – a 5 year CAGR of 18%. There were 133 million UCaaS seats in 2016 – projected to grow to 343 million in 2021 but only an estimated 18% were actively used for UC. Given the growing market opportunity for end user adoption, the Company intends to release a subset of new services in the first half of 2018 to a select group of current and prospective customers who want to accelerate user transformation quickly and efficiently as they move to cloud services. We look forward to working with our customers and partners as they look to more effectively migrate and adopt next generation collaboration services.”

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net income (loss) before depreciation, amortization, taxes, stock-based compensation and stock-based expense, impairment charges, and interest and other income (expense), net. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to replace operating income (loss), net income (loss), cash flow or other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Rather, Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure used by management to assess the operating performance of the Company and is used in the calculation of financial covenants in the Company’s loan agreements. Adjusted EBITDA as defined here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in accounting policies. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) is shown in the attached schedules.
