SEACHANGE INTERNATIONAL REPORTS SECOND QUARTER FISCAL 2020 RESULTS
Revenue Increases by 58% as Framework Offering Gains Traction
Management Reiterates Full Year Guidance
Yossi Aloni Named Chief Executive Officer
ACTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / August 29, 2019 / SeaChange International, Inc. (NASDAQ:SEAC) today reported second quarter fiscal 2020 revenue of $18.8 million and a net loss of $0.2 million, or $0.00 per basic share, compared to second quarter fiscal 2019 revenue of $11.9 million and a net loss of $9.1 million, or $0.26 per basic share.
Quarterly and Recent Highlights
Today SeaChange is also announcing that effective immediately, Yossi Aloni, has been appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. Mr. Aloni, who joined SeaChange in January 2019 as Chief Commercial Officer, strategized, developed and implemented the Framework solution and Go-to-Market strategy that is responsible for the Company's recent growth. Chad Hassler, who has served as Head of North American Sales, has been named Chief Commercial Officer; Mr. Hassler joined SeaChange earlier this year and brings more than 20 years of experience in sales and marketing in the video delivery domain to the Company.
Mark J. Bonney, Executive Chairman said, 'We are very pleased with our achievements in the second quarter. The number of Framework deals closed and in the pipeline is solid evidence that the strategy of offering an end-to-end video delivery platform is working. Revenues, mainly from the Framework deals, along with the benefits of the consolidation of our R&D resources in Warsaw, which produced the Backoffice 7th generation in one year, and our continual focus on every element of cost in the business allowed us to achieve non-GAAP operating profitability in the second quarter and earlier than previously expected.' Mr. Bonney added, 'I congratulate Yossi on his appointment, which reflects the entire Board's confidence in his ability to step up to the Chief Executive Officer role and lead SeaChange going forward.'
Yossi Aloni, Chief Executive Officer, commented, 'I thank the Board for showing their confidence in me and I look forward to leading SeaChange as CEO during these exciting times for the Company and the industry'. Mr. Aloni added 'I am pleased with our Framework wins in the first half of this year. In the second quarter we began to recognize revenue from some of the customers who have adopted our solution. Based upon our expanding engagement with new and existing customers, we continue to expect transactions involving the Framework solution to increase materially in the back half of the year, in line with our annual guidance. With our results in the first half of this fiscal year, and the second quarter particularly, we remain confident about our ability to achieve our annual revenue guidance.'
The Company's U.S. GAAP second quarter fiscal 2020 results included charges of $1.7 million used in non-GAAP calculations, which consisted of amortization of intangible assets from prior acquisitions of $0.3 million, severance and other restructuring costs of $0.7 million, stock-based compensation of $0.6 million and professional fees of $0.1 million. Second quarter fiscal 2019 results included charges of $1.9 million used in non-GAAP calculations, which consisted of stock-based compensation of $0.9 million, amortization of intangible assets from prior acquisitions of $0.4 million and severance and other restructuring costs of $0.5 million. Non-GAAP income from operations in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 was $1.0 million, or $0.03 per fully diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss from operations in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 of $6.4 million, or $0.18 per basic share.
For the first six months of fiscal 2020, the Company reported revenue of $27.3 million and a net loss of $11.0 million, or $0.30 per basic share, compared to revenue of $26.8 million and a net loss of $14.6 million, or $0.41 per basic share in the same period in the prior fiscal year. The non-GAAP loss from operations for the first six months of fiscal 2020 was $6.5 million, or $0.18 per basic share, compared to a non-GAAP loss from operations of $10.2 million, or $0.29 per basic share, in the first half of fiscal 2019.
Update on the Company's key metrics for fiscal 2020:
SeaChange management continues to believe that achieving these goals will establish the foundation for a business model that could result in sustainable double-digit revenue growth and non-GAAP operating income growth of 12-15% in 2 to 3 years.
These GAAP estimates are subject to a number of variables that are outside of management's control, including the size of restructuring expenses, which are influenced by the timing of certain non-U.S. restructuring activities and stock price fluctuations.
The Company will host a conference call to discuss its second quarter Fiscal 2020 results at 5:00 p.m. ET today, Thursday, August 29, 2019. The call may be accessed by dialing 877-407-8037 (U.S.) and 201-689-8037 (international) and via live webcast on the Events page at investors.seachange.com. The webcast replay will be archived the same location following completion of the call.

We define non-GAAP loss from operations as U.S. GAAP operating loss plus stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, non-operating expense professional fees and severance and other restructuring costs. We discuss non-GAAP loss from operations in our quarterly earnings releases and certain other communications, as we believe non-GAAP operating loss from operations is an important measure that is not calculated according to U.S. GAAP. We use non-GAAP loss from operations in internal forecasts and models when establishing internal operating budgets, supplementing the financial results and forecasts reported to our Board of Directors, determining a component of bonus compensation for executive officers and other key employees based on operating performance and evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in our operations. We believe that the non-GAAP loss from operations financial measure assists in providing an enhanced understanding of our underlying operational measures to manage the business, to evaluate performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace, and to establish operational goals. We believe that the non-GAAP financial adjustments are useful to investors because they allow investors to evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in our financial and operational decision-making.
Non-GAAP loss from operations is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with U.S. GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. We expect to continue to incur expenses similar to the financial adjustments described above in arriving at non-GAAP loss from operations and investors should not infer from our presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. The following table includes the reconciliations of our U.S. GAAP loss from operations, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, to our non-GAAP loss from operations for the three and six months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018:
