FORM Holdings' Chief Executive Officer, Andrew D. Perlman, said, "We are pleased to report $17.7 million in sales, representing an increase of 17.8% on a pro forma basis including XpresSpa in the same period a year ago prior to our ownership, and consolidated Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.6 million for the third quarter. Since closing the XpresSpa acquisition, we have been focused on growing our footprint, refining our operations and optimizing the cost structure within the Wellness segment, which resulted in our second consecutive quarter of positive Adjusted EBITDA in that segment. Our team showed remarkable resilience during the hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Georgia, and we were pleased to be able to not only minimize their impact, which we estimate at $0.4 million of lost potential revenue, but also continue to foster our positive corporate culture by providing support to those employees that were affected.

"During the third quarter, we re-opened our flagship location in JFK's terminal 4 after an extensive remodel and remodeled a number of our locations in Orlando. We are extracting savings from improved buildout design, and our latest store layout continues to perform well, allowing us to test new concepts and offerings, including the XpresCryo facial and nail care featuring essie® branded products.

"We are proud of the partnerships we've put in place. Our agreement with Capelli New York to co-produce and sell XpresSpa's line of branded travel and spa products and accessories is a great example of how we are working toward improving our customer experience while providing the Company with additional revenue opportunities. Our partnership with Nordic Cryotherapy shows our ability to innovate and demonstrates the higher margin services which we intend to launch in the future. We look forward to sharing several other developments in the near future which build upon our strategy of expanding our addressable market and raising XpresSpa's profile in the industry.

"Within our Technology segment, our recent realignment is helping better position the organization to drive high margin sales and ensure we maximize value during this divestment process. We are committed to focusing on the growing health and wellness industry and parting with non-core assets, which began with the sale of FLI Charge following the close of the third quarter."

2017 Outlook

Mr. Perlman concluded, "We will continue to build upon our leadership position in the rapidly expanding health and wellness industry by leveraging our existing XpresSpa platform through additional unit expansion, product and service enhancements and targeting new complementary channels of growth. In addition to the six units already opened this year and six we anticipate opening before year end, we already have nine units in the pipeline for 2018. The 2018 pipeline consists of units sourced through RFPs and direct negotiations with airport concession operators. We intend to continue to grow our brand through a variety of initiatives, including changing our company name to better align with our mission, as well as exploring franchising opportunities. We have been encouraged by the preliminary indications of demand to franchise XpresSpa, both in the United States and internationally, but intend to take a slow and measured approach with this initiative."

Operating Results

For the third quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company reported consolidated revenue of $17.7 million, an increase of 471.8% as compared to the same period in the prior year, primarily driven by the acquisition of XpresSpa in December 2016 and Excalibur in February 2017. Revenue for the third quarter of 2017 includes a one-time payment of $0.2 million associated with an intellectual property license agreement compared to $1.4 million associated with an intellectual property license agreement in the third quarter of 2016.

Consolidated operating loss from continuing operations was $4.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 as compared to a loss of $3.4 million in the same period in the prior year. The Company's operating loss from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 included approximately $1.8 million of merger and acquisition integration, reorganization and one-time non-recurring costs related to the interruption of business due to hurricanes and $0.7 million of stock-based compensation expense. The third quarter of fiscal 2016 included $0.5 million of stock-based compensation expense.

Balance Sheet & Cash Flows

As of September 30, 2017, the Company had current assets of $17.9 million, including a cash balance of $10.1 million, and long-term debt of $6.5 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA has been presented in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and is a supplemental measure of financial performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We consider Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator for the performance of our business, but not a measure of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We have included this non-GAAP financial measure because management utilizes this information for assessing our performance and liquidity, and as an indicator of our ability to make capital expenditures and finance working capital requirements. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a measurement that is commonly used by analysts and some investors in evaluating the performance and liquidity of companies such as us. In particular, we believe that it is useful for analysts and investors to understand this indicator because it excludes transactions not related to our core cash operating activities. We believe that excluding these transactions allows investors to meaningfully analyze the performance of our core cash operations. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or as an alternative to operating income or as an indicator of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. In evaluating our performance as measured by Adjusted EBITDA, we recognize and consider the limitations of this measurement. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our obligations for the payment of income taxes, interest expense, or other obligations such as capital expenditures. Accordingly, Adjusted EBITDA is only one of the measurements that management utilizes.
