LAS VEGAS, Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — EBET, Inc. (Nasdaq: EBET), a leading global provider of advanced wagering products and technology, announced today that it had made significant progress in reducing Net Loss and increasing Adjusted EBITDA for the two months ended August 2022. The company reported its Net Loss for this two-month period to be $3.8 million, with an Adjusted EBITDA that was approximately breakeven based on unaudited interim financial results (see “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Loss to Adjusted EBITDA” table below for details on this non-GAAP financial measure).

EBET Achieves Major Improvements in Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA for Two Months Ended August 2022

The company had a Net Loss of $9.0 million and negative Adjusted EBITDA of $4.0 million in the previous quarter. This represents an average turnaround of approximately $1.7 million per month in Net Loss and $1.4 million per month in Adjusted EBITDA for the two months ended August 2022.

Measures taken to impact the company’s Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA included a realignment of resources to focus on revenue-generating wagering products, an elimination of non-material contracts, and a general reduction of operating costs.

“This represents significant progress for the company, as we have a two-month period of improved Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA,” commented Aaron Speach, Chief Executive Officer of EBET. “I’m proud that the team was able to achieve such a massive turnaround in such a short period of time, as August was our first month implementing our new profitability plan. I am specifically encouraged and optimistic for our shareholders because we were able to achieve this despite the challenging global business environment. In the coming months, we look to scale all profitable revenue-generating wagering products as well as seek out new traffic-generating opportunities and partnerships. We are optimistic about our future and will continue to strive to create value for our EBET shareholders.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure of income and does not include the effects of preferred stock dividends, foreign currency gains/losses, derivative gains/losses, restructuring costs, interest and taxes. It also excludes the “non-cash” effects of depreciation and amortization on long-term assets as well as stock-based compensation. We believe that this non-GAAP financial measure, as presented, represents a useful method of assessing the performance of our operating activities, as they reflect our earnings trends without the impact of certain non-cash charges and other non-recurring charges. This non-GAAP financial measure is intended to supplement the GAAP financial information by providing additional insight regarding results of operations to allow a comparison to other companies, many of whom use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. However, these non-GAAP financial measures will not be defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable to other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any of the consolidated statements of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as an indication of our operating performance or liquidity. The Adjusted EBITDA and Net Loss figures presented represent the unaudited results from July and August 2022 and should not be interpreted as providing guidance for future periods. Finally, we can also provide no assurance that these results will not change as a result of auditor findings during our annual audit of FY2022 financial results.
