SUPER LEAGUE GAMING REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2020 RESULTS
 
Santa Monica, Calif. - (November 11, 2020)
- Super League Gaming (Super League or the Company) (NASDAQ: SLGG), a leader in bringing live and digital esports entertainment directly to everyday gamers around the world, reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.
 
Highlights
Highest quarterly revenue in the Company’s history, up 105% over the prior year.
Gross margin of 54%, reflecting lower cost digital activations.
Operating expenses relatively flat versus prior year period.
Continued expansion of strategic partnerships including Topgolf, HIT PARADER, the Singleton Foundation and others.
 
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) Through September 30, 2020
Registered users up 144% to 2.4 million versus 1.0 million at year end 2019.
Engagement hours increased 218% to 47.7 million hours of gameplay versus 15.0 million hours for the full year 2019.
Viewer Impressions grew to 1.4 billion, nearly 12 times the level for the full year 2019.
 
Management Commentary
In the third quarter, we saw many of the elements of our strategic and operating plans come together to produce our strongest quarterly revenues to date,” said Ann Hand, CEO of Super League. “We continue to track far ahead of our 2020 audience growth targets. In addition, we are selling more effectively against our growing ad inventory and expanding the breadth of our partnerships. We are pleased to have been able to produce this growth in the midst of a global pandemic, which continues to constrain the advertising market.”
 
Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results
Revenues in the third quarter of 2020 increased 105% to $718,000 compared to $350,000 in the comparable prior year quarter. The increase was primarily driven by a significant increase in advertising and content sales revenues relative to the comparable prior year quarter, reflecting our continued focus on the acceleration of the monetization of our expanding advertising inventory and amateur gameplay content.
 
Third quarter 2020 cost of revenue increased 70% to $327,000 compared to $192,000 in the comparable prior year quarter, as compared to the 105% increase in related revenues for the same period. The decrease in cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue was driven by the significant increase in lower cost advertising and content sales revenues in the third quarter of 2020.
 
 
 
 
Total operating expenses in the third quarter of 2020 were $4.7 million compared to $4.6 million in the comparable prior year quarter. The variance reflects an increase in sales and marketing personnel costs related to the investment in our direct sales force since the end of the prior year quarter, and an increase in technology platform costs and corporate insurance costs. The increase was partially offset by a decrease in non-cash stock compensation costs.
 
On a GAAP-basis, net loss in the third quarter of 2020 was $4.3 million or $(0.36) per share, compared to a net loss of $4.4 million or $(0.52) per share in the comparable prior year quarter. Non-cash charges in the third quarter of 2020 included $0.5 million of stock-based compensation expenses, compared to $0.7 million in the comparable prior year period.
 
Proforma net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $3.8 million compared to a proforma net loss of $3.7 million in the comparable prior year quarter.
 
At September 30, 2020, the Company’s cash position totaled $10.3 million compared to $8.4 million at December 31, 2019, including approximately $8.4 million in net proceeds from the sale of 4.98 million shares of common stock, pursuant to an underwritten public offering that closed in the third quarter of 2020.

Information About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
As used herein, “GAAP” refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. To supplement our condensed financial statements included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2020, which financial statements were prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, this earnings release includes proforma net loss, a financial measure that is considered a non-GAAP financial measure as defined in Rule 101 of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
 
We use proforma net loss, proforma earnings per share (EPS) and other non-GAAP financial measures for internal financial and operational decision-making purposes and to evaluate period-to-period comparisons of the performance and results of operations of our business. Our management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business by excluding non-cash stock compensation charges, non-cash interest charges on convertible debt, and non-cash prepaid in-kind advertising charges that may not be indicative of our recurring core business operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management’s internal planning and comparisons to our historical performance and liquidity. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors as they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making and are used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the performance and operational results of our core business.
 
 
 
 
 
Proforma Net Loss and EPS. We define Proforma Net Loss as net loss calculated in accordance with GAAP, but excluding non-cash stock compensation charges, non-cash interest charges on convertible debt (including accrued periodic interest, periodic or accelerated amortization of debt discount charges and charges related to convertible debt related beneficial conversion features), and non-cash prepaid in-kind advertising charges. Proforma EPS is defined as Proforma net income divided by the weighted average outstanding shares, on a fully diluted basis, calculated in accordance with GAAP, for the respective reporting period.
 
Due to the inherent volatility in stock prices, the use of estimates and assumptions in connection with the valuation and expensing of share-based awards and the variety of award types that companies can issue under FASB ASC Topic 718, management believes that providing a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash stock compensation allows investors to make meaningful comparisons between our recurring core business operating results and those of other companies period to period, as well as providing our management with a critical tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our own period-to-period recurring core business operating results.
 
Non-cash interest charges related to convertible debt outstanding, if any, including accrued periodic interest, periodic or accelerated amortization of debt discount charges and charges related to convertible debt related beneficial conversion features, primarily reflects the attribution of value to common stock purchase warrants and the beneficial conversion feature embedded in the convertible debt instruments, and the expensing of these amounts on a straight-line basis over the term of the convertible debt as additional interest cost related to the debt. These non-cash amounts are reflected in other expense and are not expenses associated with our core business operations. Management believes that providing a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash interest charges allows investors to make meaningful comparisons between our recurring core business operating results and those of other companies period to period, as well as providing our management with a critical tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our own period-to-period recurring core business operating results.
 
There are several limitations related to the use of proforma net loss and EPS versus net loss EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP. For example, non-GAAP net loss excludes the impact of significant non-cash stock compensation and debt related interest charges that are or may be recurring, and that may or will continue to be recurring for the foreseeable future. In addition, non-cash stock compensation is a critical component of our employee compensation and retention programs and the cost associated with common stock purchase warrants and beneficial conversion features embedded in convertible debt outstanding is a critical component of the cost of debt financings. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from non-GAAP net loss and evaluating non-GAAP net loss in conjunction with net loss and EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP.
 
The accompanying table below titled “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Information” provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
