Over the past two quarters, we have reduced inventory by 26.0% to $25.4 million and accounts payable by 75.0% to $2.8 million at the end of 2022. Furthermore, we reduce our operating expenses beginning Q2 2023 by approximately 20% through diligent cost management and natural staff attrition and are shifting resources to support the launch of Support+, our premium software support subscription service in June.”

Patel continued, “2022 revenues were down 9% year over year. Across the industry, demand for consumer electronics softened in the fourth quarter and brick-and-mortar retailers took actions to absorb higher inventories that had been amassed to offset supply chain challenges. Importantly, we are maintaining our market leadership on and recent launches with premier online retailers including,,, and others, expands our online presence and more strongly aligns our distribution points with consumer purchasing preferences.”

Patel concluded, “Looking ahead to 2023, our working capital has improved, our cost structure is leaner and we are preparing to launch our high-value Support+ subscription offering, which we believe could lead to higher gross margins as the offering scales.”

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, income tax provision, material one-time expenses (income), and stock-based compensation expenses.

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 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.
