SEACHANGE INTERNATIONAL REPORTS THIRD QUARTER FISCAL 2020 RESULTS
Revenue Increases by 10% as Framework Offering Continues to Gain Traction
Management Reiterates Full Year Revenue and Operating Income Guidance
ACTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / December 4, 2019 / SeaChange International, Inc. (NASDAQ:SEAC) today reported third quarter fiscal 2020 revenue of $20.5 million and net income of $2.1 million, or $0.06 per basic share, compared to third quarter fiscal 2019 revenue of $18.6 million and a net loss of $3.8 million, or $0.11 per basic share.
Quarterly and Recent Highlights
Yossi Aloni, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
"The transformation of SeaChange is well underway and taking hold: we are seeing further evidence that our strategic growth initiatives are winning in the marketplace, positioning SeaChange for clear market leadership and long-term profitable growth. The Framework offering and our unique value-based engagement have been well received. Our new wins in the quarter provide additional confirmation that we have a superior product, which enables our customers in turn to offer an exceptional viewer experience to their customers."
"In addition to our focus on revenue growth and Framework wins, we continue to streamline our operations to better align with the realities of our business as it exists today. We have identified substantial expense savings, and we are actively engaged in realizing those savings. Our new Chief Financial Officer, Michael Prinn, is working diligently to both realize the cost savings previously identified as well as identifying additional opportunities that may exist."
"The only financial metric that was disappointing was our cash balance of $13.8 million at quarter end. The good news is that we believe our cash position has stabilized, and the actions we are taking to right-size the cost structure of the company, combined with our strong sales momentum, should set us up to be cash flow positive moving forward."
The Company's U.S. GAAP third quarter fiscal 2020 results included charges of $2.9 million in non-GAAP adjustments, which consisted of amortization of intangible assets from prior acquisitions of $0.3 million, severance and other restructuring costs of $2.3 million and stock-based compensation of $0.4 million. Third quarter fiscal 2019 results included charges of $2.2 million in non-GAAP adjustments, which consisted of stock-based compensation of $0.8 million, amortization of intangible assets from prior acquisitions of $0.4 million and severance and other restructuring costs of $1.0 million. Non-GAAP income from operations in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was $5.2 million, or $0.14 per fully diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss from operations in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 of $0.3 million, or $0.01 per basic share.
For the first nine months of fiscal 2020, the Company reported revenue of $47.8 million and a net loss of $8.9 million, or $0.24 per basic share, compared to revenue of $45.4 million and a net loss of $18.4 million, or $0.52 per basic share, in the same period in the prior fiscal year. The non-GAAP loss from operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2020 was $1.3 million, or $0.04 per basic share, compared to a non-GAAP loss from operations of $10.5 million, or $0.29 per basic share, in the first nine months 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 targeted to result in sustainable double-digit revenue growth and non-GAAP operating income of 10-13% 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 restructuring activities and stock price fluctuations.
Following the quarter, Mark Bonney, Chairman of the Board, has resigned from the board after several years of service. Robert Pons has been appointed Chairman of the Board.
The Company will host a webcast and conference call to discuss its third quarter Fiscal 2020 results at 5:00 p.m. ET today, Wednesday, December 4, 2019. The live webcast may be accessed at https://78449.themediaframe.com/dataconf/productusers/scc/mediaframe/33423/indexl.html; which will include a presentation accompanying management's remarks.

We define non-GAAP income (loss) from operations as U.S. GAAP operating income (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 income (loss) from operations in our quarterly earnings releases and certain other communications, as we believe non-GAAP operating income (loss) from operations is an important measure that is not calculated according to U.S. GAAP. We use non-GAAP income (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 income (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 income (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 income (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 income (loss) from operations, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, to our non-GAAP income (loss) from operations for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018:
