Sangoma's Services revenue was $50.35 million, representing 82% of total revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2024. Products revenue decreased year over year, driven by macroeconomic headwinds and some delayed orders, however is consistent with our strategic objective to shift towards services.

The Company's balance sheet remains very strong as it continues to improve quarter over quarter. The third quarter finished with net cash provided by operating activities ("operating cash flow") of $15.51 million, an increase of 121% from the prior year period, and a cash balance of $18.39 million on March 31, 2024, reflecting a strong quarterly progression of operating cash flow. Cash conversion of operating cash flow to Adjusted EBITDA2 during the second quarter reached 139%, almost two and half times the rate compared to 57% conversion a year ago and 88% from the immediately preceding quarter. Sangoma continues to remain comfortably within its debt covenants.

"We are two quarters into the transformative journey and I am exceptionally pleased and proud of how the Sangoma team is maintaining excellent service for our core customers while bolstering our financial health," stated Charles Salameh, Chief Executive Officer.

"Our initiatives in expanding our go-to-market, reinvigorating our brand and investing in our enterprise architecture program are all tracking to plan. This, along with the continued strengthening of our balance sheet will enhance the strategic options we have to increase the value of our business."

Given the results for the third quarter and the assumptions below, Sangoma is reaffirming and providing further clarity on its guidance for fiscal year 2024. Prior guidance, announced on February 9, 2024, projected revenues ranging between $245 million and $250 million, with Adjusted EBITDA2 expected to fall within $41 million and $44 million. Upon careful evaluation, Sangoma is narrowing its fiscal year 2024 revenue guidance to a range of $246.5 million to $248.5 million and is refining its Adjusted EBITDA2 forecast to be between $41.5 million and $43.5 million.3

Operating expenses1 were $42.75 million for the quarter, slightly down from $43.37 million for the same period last year by about 1%.

Net loss for the third quarter was $1.27 million, while Adjusted EBITDA2 remained strong at $11.16 million or 18% of total revenue, reflecting a 7% increase compared to Q2 of fiscal year 2024.

Forward-looking statements are provided for the purpose of presenting information about management's current expectations and plans relating to the future and readers are cautioned that such statements may not be appropriate for other purposes. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements relating to management's guidance on revenue and Adjusted EBITDA, statements relating to expected future production and cash flows, and other statements which are not historical facts. When used in this document, the words such as "could", "plan", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "may", "potential", "should" and similar expressions indicate forward-looking statements.

Although Sangoma believes that its expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, such statements involve risks and uncertainties and no assurance can be given that actual results will be consistent with these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management at the date that the statements are made, and are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those projected in forward-looking statements.

Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, as there can be no assurance that the plans, intentions or expectations upon which they are based will occur. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve numerous assumptions, known and unknown risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, that contribute to the possibility that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other events contemplated by the forward-looking statements will not occur. Although Sangoma believes that the expectations represented by such forward-looking statements are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct as these expectations are inherently subject to business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Some of the risks and other factors which could cause results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements contained herein include, but are not limited to, risks and uncertainties associated with changes in exchange rate between the Canadian dollar and other currencies (in particular the United States' ("US") dollar), changes in technology, changes in the business climate, changes to macroeconomic conditions, including (i) inflationary pressures and potential recessionary conditions, as well as actions taken by central banks and regulators across the world in an attempt to reduce, curtail and address such pressures and conditions, including any increases in interest rates, and (ii) the effects of adverse developments at financial institutions, including bank failures, that impact general sentiment regarding the stability and liquidity of banks, and the resulting impact on the stability of the global financial markets at large, risks related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and any resurgence thereof, our ability to identify and remediate material weaknesses and significant deficiencies in our internal controls, changes in the regulatory environment, the imposition of tariffs, the decline in the importance of the PSTN (as hereinafter defined), impairment of goodwill and new competitive pressures, and acts of terrorism and war, hostilities and conflicts, including, but not limited to, Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 (and associated changes in global trade policies and economic sanctions), and the other risk factors described in our most recently filed Annual Information Form for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023.

Our guidance is based on the Company's assessment of many material assumptions, including:

Non-IFRS Measures and Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measure

This press release contains references to Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure. Non-IFRS financial measures are used by management to evaluate the performance of the Company and do not have any meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other reporting issuers. Non-IFRS financial measures used herein have been applied on a consistent basis. "Adjusted EBITDA" means earnings before income taxes, interest expense (net), share-based compensation, depreciation (including for right-of-use assets), amortization, restructuring and business integration costs, goodwill impairment and change in fair value of consideration payable. Adjusted EBITDA is a measure used by many investors to compare issuers. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's main business activities before taking into consideration how they are financed, taxed, depreciated or amortized. Investors are cautioned that non-IFRS financial measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA, should not be construed as an alternative to net income or cash flow determined in accordance with IFRS. The IFRS measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA presented in our financial statements is net loss.

The following table reconciles Adjusted EBITDA to net loss for the periods indicated:
