Recent Business Highlights
● Maintained #1 market share position for cable modems and gateways on Amazon for Q2 2022.
● Exceeded last year’s Prime Day sales by 53% to kick off Q3.
● Expanded product portfolio with successful, on-time launch of Q11 and Q14 mesh products.
● Won additional shelf space at Target and Best Buy.
● Announced executive leadership transition and named Mehul Patel as Chief Executive Officer effective September 1, 2022.
Mehul Patel, Incoming Chief Executive Officer of Minim, said, “Second quarter results reflect the near-term challenges that consumer brands are facing in the current environment and a challenging year-over-year comparison as Amazon Prime Day shifted from a Q2 event last year to a Q3 event this year. Our e-commerce platforms align with an increasing shift by consumers to online purchasing and continue to perform well. We are maintaining our #1 position on Amazon.com following a successful Prime Day, and we are making great strides on walmart.com, despite softening consumer demand.”
Patel continued, “Having been with the company for 6 months now, I am increasingly encouraged by the opportunities for this business and the transformation strategy that has been established to drive growth and set Minim apart as a leader in the industry. Our development efforts to bring more intelligent products to market are advancing, and we have a number of new distribution opportunities that are in the works. The recent successful launch of our Q11 and Q14 mesh products further advances our business transformation and early sales reports indicate that it’s performing better than its predecessors. We are well-positioned to meet current demand and increase recurring revenue from software. In the near-term, we will be focused on a more diligent approach to the allocation of capital and cost containment while continuing to advance our transformation and grow the lifetime value of our customers.”
Net revenue in the second quarter of 2022 was $12.9 million, a decrease of 13.6% compared to $14.9 million in the second quarter of 2021. Sequentially, revenue decreased 3.0% compared to net revenue of $13.3 million in the first quarter of 2022.

Sequentially, this compares to a net loss of $2.5 million, or ($0.06) per basic and diluted share, in the first quarter of 2022.
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2022 was ($3.4) million when adjusted for $0.3 million in stock-based compensation expense and $0.3 million of revenue bookings, a $3.1 million year-over-year decrease compared to ($0.3) million in the second quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), this news release contains the non-GAAP financial measures Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as GAAP net income (loss) plus depreciation of fixed assets and amortization of intangible assets, other (expense) income, net, income tax provision, material one-time expenses and income, and stock-based compensation expenses, and Revenue Bookings, which we define as GAAP Revenue, which was $12.9 million for Q2 2022, plus the change in deferred revenue recorded within the financial reporting period being disclosed, which amounted to $0.3 million for Q2 2022.
We use these non-GAAP financial measures in internal forecasts and models when establishing internal operating budgets, supplementing the financial results and forecasts reported to our Board of Directors, and evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in our operations. We believe that these measures provide an enhanced understanding of our underlying operational measures to manage the business, to evaluate performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace, and to establish operational goals.
Minim believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are also useful to investors and analysts in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis. These supplemental financial measures exclude costs incurred and related to the merger with Cadence Connectivity, Inc. as the company deems these costs as one-time in nature.
These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. These financial measures may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. We expect to continue to incur expenses similar to the financial adjustments described above and investors should not infer from our presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
