Oblong Announces Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results


Oblong, Inc. (NYSE American: OBLG) ("Oblong" or the "Company"), the award-winning maker of multi-stream collaboration solutions, today announced financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Financial Highlights

"As enterprises look to redesign their office environments for more flexible workstyles, Oblong is accelerating its transition to a hybrid provider of technology driven interactive collaboration solutions both in and, beyond the physical office during the COVID-19 shutdown," commented Peter Holst, Chairman and CEO of Oblong. "While this transition is underway, Oblong is increasingly engrained as a key part of the office of the future, enabling sophisticated collaboration in ways that tomorrow's enterprises will demand and expect. The challenges during the pandemic have heightened awareness of these capabilities, as evidenced by the tailwinds Zoom, WebEx and others have experienced and, as business leaders look to the next phase of digital transformation, it's evident the need to produce more interactive, engaged and deterministic meetings will become a key driver in how and where organizations increase productivity. Oblong's unique technology driven solutions in spatial and gestural content distribution is expected to lead to margin expansion and accelerated growth in the months ahead."

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted EBITDA ("AEBITDA") loss, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net loss before depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, impairment charges, severance, merger expenses and interest and other expense, net. AEBITDA loss is not intended to replace operating loss, net loss, cash flow or other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Rather, AEBITDA loss is an important measure used by management to assess the operating performance of the Company and to compare such performance between periods. AEBITDA loss as defined here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in accounting policies. Therefore, AEBITDA loss should be considered in conjunction with net loss and other performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as operating loss or cash flow provided by (used in) operating activities, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures, such as net loss, operating loss or any other GAAP measure of liquidity or financial performance. A GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation of net loss to AEBITDA loss is shown under "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation" later in this release.

The forward-looking statements are based on management's current belief, based on currently available information, as to the outcome and timing of future events, and involve factors, risks, and uncertainties that may cause actual results in future periods to differ materially from such statements. A list and description of these and other risk factors can be found in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2019 and in other filings made by the Company with the SEC from time to time, including the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, filed with the SEC on August 14, 2020 (the "Quarterly Report"). Any of these factors could cause Oblong's actual results and plans to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, the Company can give no assurance that its future results will be as estimated. The Company does not intend to, and disclaims any obligation to, correct, update, or revise any information contained herein.
