PITTSBURGH, PA, May 11, 2023 – Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) (“Smith Micro” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2023.
“We accomplished several key initiatives during our first quarter of 2023,” said William W. Smith Jr., president, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of Smith Micro. “Most significantly, we took the necessary steps in reallocating resources to better streamline operations across the entire organization and to substantially reduce expenses. We anticipate $4 million of quarterly cost savings as compared to the fourth quarter of 2022 as a result and expect to achieve that savings target in the second quarter.”
Smith continued, “Looking ahead we remain very positive and excited about our Fiscal 2023. We expect a new launch with one of our Tier 1 carrier partners on the SafePath® platform, and our sales pipeline in both the U.S. and European markets is growing nicely for both our SafePath and ViewSpot® platforms, building momentum as we look at the remainder of our fiscal year.”
Smith Micro reported revenue of $10.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, compared to $12.7 million reported in the quarter ended March 31, 2022.
Gross profit for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 was $7.6 million, compared to $9.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022. Non-GAAP gross profit for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 was $7.8 million.
Gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 70 percent for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, compared to 71 percent for the quarter ended March 31, 2022. Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 72% for the quarter ended March 31, 2023.
GAAP net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 was $6.9 million, or $0.11 loss per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $7.0 million, or $0.13 loss per share, for the same period in 2022.
Non-GAAP net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 was $3.6 million, or $0.06 loss per share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $3.9 million, or $0.07 loss per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2022. Non-GAAP net loss excludes the items noted below under “Non-GAAP Measures.”
To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company considers, and has included in this press release, the following non-GAAP financial measures and a non-GAAP reconciliation from the equivalent GAAP metric: non-GAAP net (loss) income, and non-GAAP diluted (loss) earnings per share in the presentation of financial results in this press release. Management believes this non-GAAP presentation may be more meaningful in analyzing our income generation and has therefore excluded the following items from GAAP earnings calculations: stock compensation, intangibles amortization, depreciation, changes to derivatives and warrants, personnel severance and reorganization activities. Additionally, since the Company currently has federal and state net operating loss carryforwards that can be utilized to reduce future cash payments for income taxes, these non-GAAP adjustments have not been tax effected, and the resulting income tax expense reflects actual taxes paid or accrued during each period. This presentation may be considered more indicative of our ongoing operational performance. The table below presents the differences between non-GAAP net (loss) income and net (loss) income on an absolute and per-share basis. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and the non-GAAP financial measures as reported by Smith Micro may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.

These and other factors discussed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q, could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements.
