Mirko Wicha, Chairman and CEO of Haivision said, "The recent acquisition of Aviwest extends our video contribution solution portfolio and we are pleased that the demand for our expanded portfolio of products and services continues to be strong. Additionally, our teams have done a phenomenal job in successfully managing through this period of global supply chain challenges to meet the needs of our customers."

Q2 2022 Financial Results

  • Revenue of $29.9 million, up 36.8% from $21.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, a record for quarterly revenue performance.

  • Gross margins* for the quarter were 71.4%.

  • Operating profit was $0.1 million, a decrease of $2.3 million from the prior year period, but was primarily caused by increases in depreciation and amortization of $1.3 million and transaction costs of $0.6 million related to the recent acquisitions.

  • Net loss of $0.4 million was a decrease of $1.6 million from the prior year period, but was primarily caused by increases in depreciation and amortization of $1.3 million and transaction costs of $0.6 million related to the recent acquisitions.

  • Adjusted EBITDA* was $2.6 million, a decrease of $1.0 million from the prior year period, but represents the thirty-fourth (34th) consecutive quarter of positive Adjusted EBITDA*.

Financial Results

Revenue for the three months and six months ended April 30, 2022 was $29.9 million and $58.2 million, respectively, an increase of $8.0 million or 37% and $13.4 million or 30% respectively, compared to the three months and six months ended April 30, 2021.  Primary contributors to revenue growth were the recent acquisitions of Haivision MCS in August 2021 and of Aviwest in April 2022.  Gross Margins* for the three months and six months ended April 30, 2022 were 71.4% and 70.4%, compared to 78.1% and 77.2% for the three months and six month period in the prior year. The decrease in Gross Margins* results largely from the addition of Haivision MCS business which historically operated at a lower overall gross margin than Haivision's traditional business.

Total expenses in the quarter ended April 30, 2022 increased by $6.6 million. The increase in total expenses in the three month period is largely related to the acquisition of Haivision MCS and Aviwest, and included acquisition related depreciation and amortization of $1.3 million and transactional expenses of $0.6 million. For the six months ended April 30, 2022, total expenses decreased by $2.5 million.  Additional expenses related to the acquisition of Haivision MCS and Aviwest included $2.4 million of depreciation and amortization and $0.7 million in transactional expenses.  These increases in total expenses were  offset by the reduction in non-recurring share-based payments of $14.1 million related to the legacy Employee Stock Option Plan ("ESOP"). Options governed by the legacy ESOP were only exercisable upon the occurrence of a liquidity event (such as our IPO in December 2020).

Net loss for the three months ended April 30, 2022 was $0.4 million a decrease of $1.6 million from the prior year period, Net losses for the three-month period was primarily caused by the additional $1.3 million in depreciation and amortization and $0.6 million in transaction costs.  The net loss for the six months ended April 30, 2022 was $0.8 million, a $10.0 million improvement from the prior year period.  Net losses for the six months were primarily caused by the additional $2.4 million in depreciation and amortization and $0.7 million in transaction costs during the period.  Adjusted EBITDA* for the three months ended April 30, 2022 was $2.6 million, a decrease of $1.0 million from the prior year period, and Adjusted EBITDA* for the six month period ended April 30, was $4.7 million, a decrease of $2.4 million compared to the prior year period.

*Represents a non-IFRS measure. For the relevant definition, see "Non-IFRS Measures" below. As applicable, a reconciliation of this non-IFRS measure to the most directly comparable IFRS financial measure is included in the tables at the end of this press release and in the Company's management's discussion and analysis for the three months and six months ended April 30, 2022.

Financial Statements, Management's Discussion and Analysis and Additional Information

Haivision's unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements for the second quarter ended April 30, 2022 (the "Q2 Financial Statements"), the management's discussion and analysis thereon and additional information relating to Haivision and its business can be found under Haivision's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The financial information presented in this release was derived from the Q2 Financial Statements.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release includes "forward-looking information" and "forward-looking statements" (collectively, "forward-looking statements") within the meaning of applicable securities laws, including, without limitation, statements regarding the Company's growth opportunities and its ability to execute on its growth strategy. In some cases, but not necessarily in all cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "plans", "targets", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "an opportunity exists", "is positioned", "estimates", "intends", "assumes", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate" or "believes", or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might", "will" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved". In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances contain forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts, nor guarantees or assurances of future performance but instead represent management's current beliefs, expectations, estimates and projections regarding future events and operating performance.

Forward-looking statements are necessarily based on opinions, assumptions and estimates that, while considered reasonable by Haivision as of the date of this release, are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ, possibly materially, from those indicated by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the risk factors identified under "Risk Factors" in the Company's latest annual information form, and in other periodic filings that the Company has made and may make in the future with the securities commissions or similar regulatory authorities in Canada, all of which are available under the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com. These factors are not intended to represent a complete list of the factors that could affect Haivision. However, such risk factors should be considered carefully. There can be no assurance that such estimates and assumptions will prove to be correct. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this release. Haivision undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, except as required by applicable securities laws.

Non-IFRS Measures

Haivision's consolidated financial statements for the second quarter ended April 30, 2022 are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. This press release makes reference to certain non-IFRS measures, including "EBITDA", "Gross Margin", "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Adjusted EBITDA Margin". These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS, and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial information reported under IFRS. Rather, these non-IFRS measures are used to provide investors with supplemental measures of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures. We also believe that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures in the evaluation of issuers. Our management also uses non-IFRS measures to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, to prepare annual operating budgets and forecasts and to determine components of management compensation.

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure used by management to assess the financial performance of our business. Adjusted EBITDA is also a key metric that management uses prior to execution of any strategic investing or financing opportunity. "EBITDA" is defined as earnings (loss) before income taxes, depreciation, amortization and financial expenses and "Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as EBITDA, as adjusted for stock-based compensation and certain non-recurring expense items. "Adjusted EBITDA Margin" represents Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. "Gross Margin" represents gross profit divided by revenue.

A reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net income (loss) is included in the tables at the end of this press release and in the Company's management discussion and analysis for the three months and six months ended April 30, 2022.
