Net Loss and Earnings per Diluted Share of $11.4 million and $0.67

Adjusted EBITDA was a $3.4 million loss, a $1.0 million improvement versus first quarter of 2023 

The Company confirms it expects to be run-rate Adjusted EBITDA positive as early as the fourth quarter of 2024


AUSTIN, TX - (NewMediaWire) - May 20, 2024 - Interactive Strength Inc. d/b/a FORME (the "Company", or “FORME”) (NASDAQ: TRNR), today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2024.   


The Company incurred a net loss of $11.4 million for the first quarter of 2024, or a loss of $0.67 per diluted share, as compared with a net loss of $15.9 million, or a loss of $2.09 per diluted share for the same period in 2023.


Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was a $3.4 million loss for the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter reflects $3.4 million of non-cash stock-based compensation. For more information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this press release, please see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.


Trent Ward, Co-Founder and CEO of TRNR, said: “The first quarter of 2024 included a portion of CLMBR’s results as the acquisition was completed in February, but the total revenue would have been higher if CLMBR had been included for the whole period. Now that CLMBR has been integrated into the Company’s operations, and WOODWAY is fully engaged after signing the worldwide distribution agreement, we expect the potential of the acquisition to begin to show in the results of second quarter of 2024.” 


Mr. Ward continued: “We expect to announce a number of flagship orders and pilot expansions with major fitness center operators for CLMBR in the near-term, driven by positive member feedback and the long-term relationships that WOODWAY has developed over four decades. As a result of the expected revenue generated by sales of CLMBR, and the lower adjusted operating expenses, we expect to reach run-rate Adjusted EBITDA positive as early as in the 4th quarter of 2024.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our results determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, we believe the following non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating our operating performance.


The Company's non-GAAP financial measure in this press release consist of Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as net (loss) income, adjusted to exclude: other expense (income), net; income tax expense (benefit); depreciation and amortization expense; stock-based compensation expense; gain on debt extinguishment; vendor settlements; transaction related expenses; and IPO readiness costs and expenses.


The Company believes the above adjusted financial measures help facilitate analysis of operating performance and the operating leverage in our business. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors for period-to-period comparisons of our business and in understanding and evaluating our operating results for the following reasons:

      Adjusted EBITDA is widely used by investors and securities analysts to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization expense, other expense (income), net, and provision for income taxes that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon their financing, capital structures, and the method by which assets were acquired;

       Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget, as a measure of our core operating results and the effectiveness of our business strategy, and in evaluating our financial performance; and

      Adjusted EBITDA provides consistency and comparability with our past financial performance, facilitate period-to-period comparisons of our core operating results, and may also facilitate comparisons with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results.


Our use of Adjusted EBITDA, or any other non-GAAP financial measures we may use in the future, is presented for supplemental informational purposes only and should not be considered as a substitute for, or in isolation from, our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. Some of these limitations are, or may in the future be, as follows:

      Although depreciation and amortization expense are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;

      Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock-based compensation expense, which has recently been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense for our business and an important part of our compensation strategy;

      Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: (1) changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (2) interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt, which reduces cash available to us; or (3) tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us;

      Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect impairment charges for fixed assets and capitalized content, and gains (losses) on disposals for fixed assets;

      Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect gains associated with debt extinguishments.

      Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect gains associated with vendor settlements.

      Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect IPO readiness costs and expenses that do not qualify as equity issuance costs.

      Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect transaction related expenses from CLMBR acquisition.

      Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect non cash fair value gains (losses) on convertible notes, warrants and unrealized currency gains (losses).

      Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect expenses related to the Asset Purchase Agreement and potential acquisition;


Further, the non-GAAP financial measures presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in the way that these measures are calculated. For example, the expenses and other items that we exclude in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the expenses and other items, if any, that other companies may exclude from Adjusted EBITDA when they report their operating results. Because companies in our industry may calculate such measures differently than we do, their usefulness as comparative measures is limited. Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should be considered along with other operating and financial performance measures presented in accordance with GAAP.
