PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Social Reality, Inc. (NASDAQ:SRAX), a digital marketing and consumer data management and distribution technology platform company, reported results for the three ended June 30, 2018.

SRAX (PRNewsfoto/SRAX)

SRAX's CEO and Chairman Christopher Miglino, stated, "As promised, 2018 is turning out to be pivotal. Proving our strategy of building and monetizing data verticals, we successfully completed the sale of our healthcare vertical, SRAXmd, for up to $52.5 million in total consideration. Most significantly, we retained a 31% ownership stake in the new SRAXmd entity through $10 million in preferred shares. MD is a great business that has built a solid foothold in healthcare. And, we believe with its recapitalization, MD will flourish and continue to return value to shareholders.

"Now, using our same successful formula, we are investing our sale proceeds in the continued development of our other verticals and our blockchain initiative BIGtoken.com. We are very excited about BIG, a consumer-powered data marketplace, that will enable people to own, verify and sell access to their data, providing the Internet ecosystem with choice, transparency and compensation to manage and access verified data. We believe BIG's data and media transparency offers a tremendous differentiator and increases the growth potential of our other verticals.  We expect BIGtoken.com to revolutionize the consumer view of their data with the possibility that it becomes our first billion-dollar business. 

"Ultimately, we believe our verticals and BIGtoken.com, could all achieve valuations similar to SRAXmd, if not greater. Overall, we are in the strongest position we have ever been, and now we are well capitalized to drive product growth and achieve significant shareholder value," concluded Miglino.

SOCIAL REALITY, INC.
NON-GAAP TO GAAP RECONCILIATION
THREE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2018 AND 2017
(Unaudited)

Social Reality's management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various financial metrics. In addition to the company's GAAP results, management also considers the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income from operations before depreciation and amortization expenses, stock-based compensation and one-time financing and transaction expense.  Management believes that this non-GAAP measure provides useful information about Social Reality's operating results. The tables below provide a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.  This non-GAAP measure should be considered a supplement to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
