LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2018--Boxlight Corporation (Nasdaq: BOXL) (“Boxlight”), a leading provider of technology solutions for the global education market, today announced the Company's financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Management Commentary

“Momentum was strong through the important back-to-school season, helping drive a 27% year-over-year increase in revenues for the first nine months of 2018,” commented Mark Elliott, Chief Executive Officer of Boxlight. “Additionally, we ended the quarter with $5.7 million in deferred revenue of which we expect to recognize over $4 million in the fourth quarter. During the quarter, we provided Boxlight’s products to thousands of classrooms across the U.S., including new installations in McMinn County Schools in Tennessee, Huntington Beach City Schools in California and Connellsville Schools in Pennsylvania.”

“We also continue to expand our reach in key international markets including Europe and Latin America. We’ve successfully grown our sales pipeline in those markets, and are pleased to enter the fourth quarter with the largest sales pipeline in our history.”

Mr. Elliott concluded, “We are projecting the fourth quarter of this year will be the strongest in our history with over $11 million in revenue. Importantly, we see a significant opportunity to continue our growth trajectory well into the future through product introductions, growth in our re-seller network and through strategic acquisitions. It is an exciting time at Boxlight. Our mission to improve learning and engagement in classrooms, and to help educators enhance student outcomes, is taking hold as we continue to grow our reach and relevance in classrooms around the world.”

The acquisition also brings significant management talent to Boxlight by adding Daniel Leis and Dr. Aleksandra Leis, both with a strong track record of managing high-growth professional services businesses in emerging markets and sectors. EOS Education will operate as a division of Boxlight.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Boxlight’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Boxlight provides EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS as supplemental measures of its performance.

To provide investors with additional insight and allow for a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and decision-making surrounding pro forma operations, we supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, with EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP financial measures of earnings. EBITDA represents net income before income tax expense (benefit), interest income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA plus stock-based compensation. Our management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as financial measures to evaluate the profitability and efficiency of our business model. We use these non-GAAP financial measures to access the strength of the underlying operations of our business. These adjustments, and the non-GAAP financial measures that are derived from them, provide supplemental information to analyze our operations between periods and over time. We find this especially useful when reviewing pro forma results of operations, which include large non-cash amortizations of intangible assets from acquisitions and stock-based compensation. Investors should consider our non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
