Glowpoint Announces Third Quarter 2019 Results
DENVER, CO, November 14, 2019 – Glowpoint, Inc. (NYSE American: GLOW) (“Glowpoint” or the “Company”), a managed service provider of video collaboration and network applications, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.
Third Quarter and Recent Highlights:
- On October 1, 2019, Glowpoint closed its previously announced acquisition of Oblong Industries, Inc. (“Oblong” and, such acquisition, the “Oblong Transaction”).
- On October 1, 2019, Glowpoint closed the first tranche of its previously announced private placement of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series E Financing”) for approximately $2.51 million in gross proceeds. The Series E Convertible Preferred Stock issued in the Series E Financing is automatically convertible into an aggregate of approximately 880,700 shares of Glowpoint’s common stock at a price of $2.85 per share of common stock upon receipt of Glowpoint stockholder approval and approval of the NYSE American for the continued listing of the combined company following such conversion.
- Investors in the Series E Financing have committed to purchase an additional $1.25 million of Glowpoint’s Series E Convertible Preferred Stock, upon demand by Glowpoint, on the same terms.
- Assuming consummation of the second tranche of the Series E Financing, Glowpoint will have approximately 23.9 million shares of common stock outstanding, pro forma for the conversion of the Series D Preferred Stock issued by Glowpoint in the Oblong Transaction and conversion of the Series E Preferred Stock.
- The Series E investors are investing this capital into the combined company at an implied equity valuation of approximately $68 million (based upon the total $3.75 million investment for 5.5% ownership of the 23.9 million shares of pro forma common stock outstanding referenced above, which assumes the conversion of Glowpoint’s issued and outstanding shares of Series D and Series E Preferred Stock).
- The Company appointed three new members to its Board of Directors since July 2019, Jason Adelman, Richard Ramlall and John Underkoffler.
“The transformative merger with Oblong, which closed on October 1st, combines Glowpoint’s core expertise in IT Service Management and Oblong’s patented suite of collaboration products and services,” said Peter Holst, Chairman and CEO of Glowpoint. In parallel with ongoing integration efforts between the two companies, we are actively pursuing the launch of our recently announced partnership with Cisco’s Collaboration Group and expect both efforts to yield material results in the first half of 2020. The successful completion of our Series E Financing on October 1st at a significant premium relative to the market price demonstrates investor confidence regarding the substantial market opportunity the combined company has before it. We look forward to communicating this exciting opportunity to both our current shareholders and the investment community at large in the weeks and months ahead.”
Glowpoint’s Third Quarter Financial Results:
- Revenue of $2.37 million in the third quarter was comparable with revenue of $2.44 million in the second quarter of 2019.
- Net loss of $0.6 million and adjusted EBITDA (“AEBITDA”) of negative $0.2 million. AEBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. See “Non-GAAP Financial Information” below for additional information regarding this non-GAAP financial measure, and “GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation” later in this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net loss.
- Working capital of $1.6 million, including cash of $1.3 million as of September 30, 2019.
- Because the closing of the Oblong Transaction and the Series E Financing (as defined below) occurred after September 30, 2019, the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements included in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter of 2019 and in this press release do not reflect these transactions.
Glowpoint’s results from operations and financial condition are more fully discussed in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Investors are encouraged to carefully review the Company’s Form 10-Q for a complete analysis of its results from operations and financial condition.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
Adjusted EBITDA (“AEBITDA”), a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net loss before depreciation and amortization, income tax expense, stock-based compensation, impairment charges, merger expenses and interest and other expense, net. AEBITDA 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 is an important measure used by management to assess the operating performance of the Company and is used in determining achievement of performance-based stock awards. AEBITDA as defined here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in accounting policies. Therefore, AEBITDA 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 reconciliation of AEBITDA to net loss is shown under “GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation” in the attached schedules.
