Conference Call Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. ET

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Qumu Corporation (NASDAQ: QUMU) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019. The Company reported first quarter revenue of $7.1 million, a net loss of $(950,000) and adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, of $210,000, ending the quarter with cash of $8.6 million.

"Qumu has delivered a strong start to 2019, building on momentum from the second half of 2018.

"Convergence of the Enterprise Video market with the Web and Video Conferencing market traditionally dominated by firms like Zoom, Cisco, Microsoft, and Google is happening as we speak—and Qumu is directly benefiting from it."

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, revenue was $7.1 million, compared to $4.8 million last year, and net loss was $(950,000), or $(0.10) per diluted share, compared to $(4.5) million, or $(0.48) per diluted share, for the first quarter 2018.

Non-GAAP Information

To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company uses adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, which excludes certain items from net income (loss), a GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA excludes items related to interest income and expense, the impact of income-based taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, foreign currency gains and losses, and other non-operating income and expenses.

The Company uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures when planning, monitoring, and evaluating the Company’s performance. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it provides supplemental information that allows investors to review the Company's results of operations from the same perspective as management and the Company's board of directors. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding our operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

See the attached Supplemental Financial Information for a reconciliation of net loss, a GAAP measure, to adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.
