TROY, Mich., Dec. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Agrify Corporation (Nasdaq: AGFY) (“Agrify” or the “Company”), a leading provider of innovative cultivation and extraction solutions for the cannabis industry, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023 (“Q2 2023”).

“As described in our prior earnings release, the four key priorities for the Company are (1) restructuring our balance sheet, (2) reducing our costs and headcount, (3) improving our product offerings, and (4) getting our key products CE-certified for international markets,” said Raymond Chang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Agrify. “In the second quarter, we continued to reduce our operating costs and headcount. Our total operating expenses were reduced by 31%, from $8.6 million in Q1 2023 to $5.9 million in Q2 2023. The total headcount has also been reduced by 55%, from 190 to 85 on June 30, 2023. As a result, our operating loss was reduced from $7.6 million in Q1 2023 to $5.3 million this quarter, a 30% sequential improvement, and net loss was reduced from $10.3 million in Q1, 2023 to $6.8 million this quarter, a 34% sequential improvement. We will continue to make focused reductions in costs and increase organizational efficiency in an effort to turn the business profitable in the shortest time possible.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or U.S. GAAP, we use Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure to clarify and enhance an understanding of past performance. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance. We further believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful financial metric to assess our operating performance from period to period by excluding certain items that we believe are not representative of our core business. We use certain financial measures for business planning purposes, measuring our performance relative to that of our competitors and determining our compliance with certain debt instruments. We utilize Adjusted EBITDA as a key measure of our performance.

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net loss attributable to Agrify Corporation adjusted to exclude (i) tax provision and benefit; (ii) interest income and expense, net; (iii) other income and expense, net; (iv) depreciation and amortization; (v) stock-based compensation expense; (vi) acquisition-related expenses; (vii) investment banker termination fees; (viii) restructuring charges; (ix) impairments to long-lived assets; (x) gains and losses associated with the extinguishment of debt; (xi) changes in the fair value of warrant liabilities; (xii) changes in contingent consideration; (xiii) legal settlement charges; and (xiv) other items affecting our results that we do not view as representative of our ongoing operations, including losses associated with write-offs.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by investors to evaluate our performance and that of our competitors. However, our use of the term Adjusted EBITDA may vary from that of others in our industry. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net loss before income taxes, net loss attributable to Agrify Corporation, net loss per share attributable to Common Stockholders, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP as measures of performance.

Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA include (i) Adjusted EBITDA does not properly reflect capital commitments to be paid in the future, and (ii) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the underlying assets may need to be replaced and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect these capital expenditures. Our public offering and acquisition-related expenses, including legal, accounting, and other professional expenses, reflect cash expenditures and we expect such expenditures to recur from time-to-time. Our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner as we calculate the measure, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we will incur expenses similar to the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by these expenses or any unusual or non-recurring items. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net loss before income taxes, net loss attributable to Agrify Corporation, net loss per share attributable to Common Stockholders, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. When evaluating our performance, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including net loss attributable to Agrify Corporation and other U.S. GAAP results.

The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA from the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure, net loss attributable to Agrify Corporation, for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2023, and 2022:
