Blackboxstocks Announces First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

4:05 pm ET May 16, 2022 (BusinessWire) Print

Blackboxstocks Inc. (NASDAQ: BLBX), ("Blackbox" or the "Company"), a financial technology and social media hybrid platform offering real-time proprietary analytics for stock and options traders of all levels, today announced the Company's financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Financial and Operating Highlights:

Total revenue for the first quarter was $1,272,486 as compared to $1,489,668 for the same period in 2021. Adjusted EBITDA was $(893,846) and $149,456 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Cash and marketable securities totaled $8.6 million at March 31, 2022. During the first quarter, the Company repurchased 436,600 shares of BLBX common stock at an average price of $1.97 per share under our $2.5 million share repurchase program announced in January 2022. Total member count as of March 31, 2022 was 7,400. This number includes new members acquired through our discounted promotion that ended March 31st and full paid subscribers. The average member count for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 was 5,709 compared to 5,575 for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and 5,748 for the quarter ended December 31, 2021. Subsequent to quarter end, the mobile application of the Blackbox platform was released for iOS and Android phones and devices.

Gust Kepler, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The first quarter of 2022 saw volatile markets, soaring inflation and negative GDP growth which created significant headwinds for the entire financial industry. To combat these macro trends, in March we initiated our first promotional campaign offering a $5 one-month subscription. This promotion introduced our platform to new subscribers and grew our subscriber base, as many people continued their membership beyond the initial promotion period, although it negatively impacted our first quarter revenue."

"Subsequent to quarter end, we introduced our mobile application for iOS and Android phones and devices. This was an important enhancement for our subscribers who are heading back to the office and now have the same breadth of features and real-time capabilities as our original web-based application. We also announced a joint venture with CoinRoutes to create a platform to provide retail traders with proprietary analytics and superior trading execution in the cryptocurrency markets."

"Looking ahead, we are developing additional new products. This includes a mobile application for the self-directed investor, which comprises an exponentially larger portion of the market than the day trader community we currently serve. We have also begun development of a professional version of the Blackbox platform for the professional trader segment and institutions. We are extremely excited about these new products as well as the ongoing platform enhancements that we continue to make and believe these will contribute significantly to our growth in 2022 and beyond," continued Mr. Kepler.

Robert Winspear, Chief Financial Officer, added, "Expenses were higher in the first quarter, reflecting investments in development and headcount to grow and support our platform as well as current inflationary realities. Fortunately, with $8.6 million in cash and securities and low long term debt, we have the balance sheet strength to fund our growth and nimbly pivot our marketing strategies to match industry conditions as we remain focused on growing our core business and continuing to introduce new and innovative products to the market."

Summary financial data is presented in the tables below. Please see the Company's Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 16, 2022 for additional information.

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). However, management believes the presentation of certain non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations, and that when GAAP financial measures are viewed in conjunction with the non-GAAP financial measures, investors are provided with a more meaningful understanding of the Company's ongoing operating performance. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for evaluating performance. For all non-GAAP financial measures in this release, we have provided corresponding GAAP financial measures for comparative purposes in the report.

We refer to the term "EBITDA" in various places of our financial discussion. EBITDA is defined by us as net income (loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization expense and certain non-cash expenses including stock-based compensation. EBITDA is not a measure of operating performance under GAAP and therefore should not be considered in isolation nor construed as an alternative to operating profit, net income (loss) or cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, each as determined in accordance with GAAP. Also, EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of liquidity. Moreover, since EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP, and thus is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
