PITTSBURGH, PA, May 8, 2024 – Smith Micro Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMSI) (“Smith Micro” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

“In the first quarter, we have made progress in several key areas that we believe position us for growth in the back half of this fiscal year,” said William W. Smith, Jr., president, chief executive officer, and chairman of the board of Smith Micro, “We are pleased to announce that in the near term we plan to launch our first customer on SafePath Global™, a new rapid-deployment model of our SafePath® solution. Additionally, we have introduced our affiliate/influencer and retail store ambassador marketing programs to help drive subscriber growth of mobile operators’ SafePath-based solutions, and we expect our previously announced Tier 1 MNO customer in Europe to launch in the second half of this year delivering a unique product approach to a family safety solution that has yet to be seen in the market.”

“We are keenly focused on returning the Company to growth and profitability in the near term,” Smith continued. “With our new product development initiatives, including SafePath Global™, SafePath Premium™ and SafePath OS™, and our new wave of marketing activities, we believe that the Company is poised for growth over the coming quarters. To accelerate our return to non-GAAP profitability and positive cash flow, we also plan to take steps to further reduce our cost structure. The team at Smith Micro is extremely dedicated and motivated to the mission of bringing new, innovative solutions to the market and delivering the technology necessary to keep families safe in the world we live in today, and to provide premium service, innovation, and ingenuity for our customers.”

All share and per share amounts for common stock herein have been retroactively adjusted for all periods presented to give effect to the one-for-eight reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of our common stock, which became effective April 10, 2024 at 11:59 pm Eastern time.

Total cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2024 were $6.2 million. 

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, non-GAAP gross profit, and non-GAAP basic and 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 the Company’s income generation and has therefore excluded the following items from GAAP earnings calculations: stock compensation, intangibles amortization, depreciation, fair value adjustments, amortization of debt issuance costs and discount,  goodwill impairment, and adjustments for non-recurring items. 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 the Company’s ongoing operational performance. The table below presents the differences between non-GAAP net loss and net loss 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.
