Pro Forma Revenue for 2018, Inclusive of Acquisitions of Cloud B and Edison Nation LLC, was Approximately $21.0 Million

PHILLIPSBURG, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / April 17, 2019 / Edison Nation, Inc. (NASDAQ: EDNT), a full-service product development and marketing company, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

"2018 was an exciting building year for Edison Nation," said Chris Ferguson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Edison Nation. "In addition to becoming a public company, we have created a vertically integrated, end-to-end consumer product development and omni-channel marketing platform to launch innovative products to market in a rapidly changing consumer environment."

"Coupling our innovative inventor platform and crowdsourcing initiatives, we brought exciting new products to market including the Goodie Gusher, 911 Help Now, and MasterSous, all of which have experienced a tremendous acceptance. Our innovative product design platform receives on average 15 to 20 new product design submissions per day and leverages crowdsourcing, turnkey manufacturing and distribution to bring products to market at a rapid pace. More than 100,000 submissions across more than 175 countries have provided a deep database background against which we can quickly qualify the prospect of likely commercial success."

"I am incredibly proud of our team's work in 2018 and look forward to what is shaping up to be an exciting 2019, both operationally and financially. I believe that we are well positioned to create significant value for our shareholders over the long-term," concluded Ferguson.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Financial Results

Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018 increased 10.5% to $3.7 million, compared to $3.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Revenue in 2018 increased 10.3% to $16.5 million, compared to $15.0 million in 2017. The increase in revenue was primarily due to the addition of new products and customers in the consumer products segment.

Pro forma revenue for 2018 was $21.0 million, which includes revenue from Cloud B and Edison Nation LLC, for the full year of 2018.

Gross profit increased 135.7% to $1.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Gross profit increased 28.8% to $5.1 million in 2018, compared to $3.9 million in 2017.

Gross profit margin was 37.6% in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to 17.6% in the fourth quarter of 2017. Gross profit margin was 30.8% in 2018 compared to 26.4% in the year prior. The increase is primarily a result of the increase in licensing and service revenues.

Operating expenses were $3.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Operating expenses in 2018 were $9.7 million compared to $2.4 million in 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to $4.2 million in non-cash expense that was primarily stock-based compensation and pubic company expense. The company, having concluded the acquisition of Cloud b and Edison Nation in 2018 anticipates a reduction in expenses due to integration of the acquisitions.

Net loss totaled $1.4 million, or ($0.17) per basic and diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to net income of $0.1 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2017. Net loss in 2018 totaled $5.3 million, or ($1.28) per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $1.5 million, or $0.51 per basic and diluted share in 2017. The increase in net loss is primarily attributable to $4.2 in non-cash expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, totaled ($0.5) million in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to a ($0.0) million adjusted EBITDA loss in the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA in 2018 totaled $0.1 million, compared to $1.6 million in 2017. The company, having concluded the acquisition of Cloud b and Edison Nation LLC in 2018, anticipates a reduction in expenses due to integration of the acquisitions. See below under the heading, "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" for a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of such measure to the most comparable measure calculated under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").

Cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2018 totaled $2.1 million, as compared to $2.1 million at September 30, 2018. The Company believes it currently has sufficient funds to meet its working capital, debt service and capital expenditure requirements for at least the next 12 months.

Edison Nation's Crowdfunding Approach

Edison Nation's Crowdfunding tool was introduced to allow anyone to submit their best ideas for new products. Investors submit their ideas through the Edison Nation online platform www.edisonnation.com. Successful crowdfunding campaigns help position products to be commercialized because they create a market as the products are being developed. These products will be commercialized directly by Edison Nation, or through traditional licensing agreements.

Edison Nation's proprietary platform ensures privacy of intellectual property and streamlines communication and negotiations with innovators. Edison Nation has received hundreds of thousands of product ideas from inventors in over 175 countries, and for over 10 years, has been and continues to be the trusted destination for innovators, partners and consumers alike and the trusted partner for inventors who have an idea and don't want to start a company with that idea.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure that is not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). Management believes that because Adjusted EBITDA excludes (i) certain non-cash expenses (such as depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation) and (ii) expenses that are not reflective of the Company's core operating results over time (such as restructuring costs, litigation or dispute settlement charges or gains, and transaction-related costs), this measure provides investors with additional useful information to measure the Company's financial performance, particularly with respect to changes in performance from period to period. Edison Nation management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (a) as a measure of operating performance; (b) for planning and forecasting in future periods; and (c) in communications with the Company's Board of Directors concerning Edison Nation's financial performance. The Company's presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to different methods of calculation and should not be used by investors as a substitute or alternative to net income or any measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Instead, management believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should be used to supplement the Company's financial measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP to provide a more complete understanding of the trends affecting the business.
