Edgio, Inc. (Nasdaq: EGIO), the platform of choice to power unmatched speed, security and simplicity at the edge, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.
"Across the organization, we are realizing the benefits of the transformational Edgecast acquisition. We had the first-ever eight figure TCV win in Applications solutions and replaced a major competitor at one of the largest fintech companies in the world. Our unique ability to seamlessly integrate scale-enabled performance, security and programmability at the edge are being recognized by some of the most savvy technology companies in the world," said Bob Lyons, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our growing pipeline includes major global brands that understand the demonstrative value in our solutions, with many in active proof of concept. We expect this momentum to continue into the fourth quarter, driven by our Security solutions."

Updating 2022 Guidance:
“We remain bullish on Edgio’s transformation and in our ability to drive long-term value creation for our shareholders. The current macro environment has made us more cautious in the near term and we anticipate companies will delay or defer capital spending in the fourth quarter. This could impact our ISP deployments which depend on capital investments from these clients. Additionally, while we are progressing well on the integration of our Edgecast acquisition, we have seen some churn across a group of smaller customers. This is not unusual during an acquisition of this magnitude,” said Stephen Cumming, Chief Financial Officer. “Both of these are temporal in nature and we have already taken steps to address them. With this backdrop, we expect a more measured top line in Q4. Given our clear line of sight to where further synergies and efficiencies are available to us, we will prioritize improving our gross margin, Adjusted EBITDA and cash flow as we complete the integration of Edgecast.”
For 4Q22, we are expecting:
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To evaluate our business, we consider and use non-generally accepted accounting principles (“Non-GAAP”) net income (loss), EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of operating performance. These measures include the same adjustments that our management takes into account when it reviews and assesses operating performance on a period-to-period basis. We consider Non-GAAP net income (loss) to be an important indicator of our overall business performance. We define Non-GAAP net income (loss) to be U.S. GAAP net income (loss), adjusted to exclude share-based compensation, non-cash interest expense, restructuring charges, acquisition and legal related expenses, and amortization of intangible assets. We believe that EBITDA provides a useful metric to investors to compare us with other companies within our industry and across industries. We define EBITDA as U.S. GAAP net income (loss), adjusted to exclude interest expense, interest and other (income) expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted to exclude share-based compensation, restructuring charges, and acquisition and legal related expenses. We use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to review and assess operating performance. Our management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures because, collectively, they provide valuable information on the performance of our on-going operations, and they also enable us to compare against our peer companies and against other companies in our industry and adjacent industries. We believe these measures also provide similar insights to investors, and enable investors to review our results of operations “through the eyes of management.”
Furthermore, our management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to assist them in making decisions regarding our strategic priorities and areas for future investment and focus. The terms Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not defined under U.S. GAAP, and are not measures of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Our Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations include, but are not limited to:
We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our U.S. GAAP financial results and using Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental support for management’s analysis of business performance. Non-GAAP net income (loss), EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA are calculated as follows for the periods presented in thousands.
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In accordance with the requirements of Item 10(e) of Regulation S-K, we are presenting the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures and reconciling the unaudited Non-GAAP financial metrics to the comparable U.S. GAAP measures. Per share amounts may not foot due to rounding.
For future periods, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, the amounts of depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest and other (income) expense and income tax expense (benefit), that may be incurred in the future.
At approximately 4:30 p.m. EDT (1:30 p.m. PDT) today, management will host a quarterly conference call for investors. Interested parties can access the call by dialing (844) 200-6205 from the United States or (929) 526-1599 internationally, with access code 256972. The conference call will also be audio cast live from www.edg.io and a replay will be available following the call from the Edgio website.
