Glowpoint Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results
DENVER, CO, August 6, 2014 – Glowpoint, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GLOW), a leading provider of cloud-based video collaboration services and network solutions, reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.
“We posted sequential revenue growth for the second consecutive quarter driven by increased demand for business class collaboration and event services, while reporting the highest quarterly operating income since 2009,” said Peter Holst, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The growing demand for unified communications and specifically the ability to produce successful meeting experiences efficiently will drive our future growth in key markets as the industry migrates from legacy, lower margin services. This year, we’ve substantially increased our focus on product development and optimizing service delivery for our customers. Looking ahead into the second half of 2014, we are preparing to launch both our next generation of video services platform as well as a broad suite of service management and analytics tools while continuing to build channels and further develop our sales organization,” concluded Holst.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net income (loss) before depreciation, amortization, interest and other expense, net, taxes, stock-based compensation, impairment charges, acquisition costs, and severance. 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.
