Note Related to Stock Dividend Announcement

On November 9, 2022, Vislink announced the declaration of a Series A Preferred Stock dividend for its common stockholders. The dividend will be issued later this month, on or about November 22, 2022, to holders of record as of November 21, 2022. That press release can be viewed at the following link: https://www.vislink.com/2022/11/09/vislink-announces-distribution-of-series-a-preferred-stock-to-holders-of-its-common-stock/.

“Our financial results in the third quarter were below our expectations, but we believe that we have laid the groundwork for substantial future improvements,” said Carleton Miller, CEO of Vislink. “Revenue in our live news, sports and entertainment markets increased by 42% over the prior year, as the products we have introduced for these sectors have been met with a very positive response. Today’s audiences crave immediate and immersive content, and broadcast organizations are seeking new ways to tap into this demand. Our expanded portfolio of AI-automated platforms, private 5G network solutions and live remote production techniques answer this need. With products like the Cliq mobile transmitter, Quantum receiver and 5G 4Live Event Product Solution, we have the potential to revolutionize the way content is captured, distributed, and monetized. We offer a way for these organizations to realize new revenue streams, increased audience engagement and higher returns on live event coverage than previously possible.”

He continued, “Markets for our government business are also showing strength and our quoting is robust. While our revenue in this sector was down, and primarily caused by a reduction in military orders related to Afghanistan, this was mitigated in part by a rebound in first responder business. Our comprehensive airborne video downlink solution (AVDS) remains the leading option for law enforcement, public safety and first responder organizations who require pristine video quality and reliable transmissions to keep both the public and their personnel safe. Meanwhile, our Aerolink product, the newest component of the AVDS, has enabled additional capabilities requested by the public safety community. For these reasons, we remain optimistic about this part of our business delivering a positive impact on our results.”

“On the operations side, we continue to focus on driving our cost base lower through headcount and footprint reduction, maximizing efficiencies throughout the organization and streamlining our processes. We are confident that these internal optimizations, combined with our suite of solutions that uniquely address the challenges of the markets we operate in, will allow us to realize positive business results in subsequent quarters.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measure: EBITDA

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), we are presenting EBITDA in this earning release and the related earning conference call. EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. We define EBITDA as our net income (loss), excluding the impact of depreciation and amortization expense and interest income (expense). We have presented EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance, to establish budgets and to develop operational goals for managing our business. In particular, we believe that excluding the impact of these expenses in calculating EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core operating performance.
