Fiscal Third Quarter 2022 and Recent Highlights
- Secured multi-million-dollar contract renewal with one of the largest multiple-system-operators in the United States, demonstrating ability to successfully monetize long-term relationships.
- Appointed veteran TMT executive Peter D. Aquino as President and CEO, solidifying senior leadership team, and initiating strategic initiatives.

- Decreased operating expenses by 14% sequentially substantially due to ongoing efficiency measures and approaching break-even and company profitability objectives.
- Ended quarter with solid balance sheet, including $17.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and no debt.
“Our financial results in the third quarter demonstrate our continued commitment to our multi-pronged strategy towards revenue growth, increased profitability, and strategic objectives,” said SeaChange’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Peter D. Aquino. “My first 90 days included a deep dive into the operations, management objectives, and growth products that we are ‘leaning’ into to accelerate our transformation and provide customers with leading-edge software to drive their streaming services. I am very excited about our upside to play a leading role in enabling our customers to capture this new demand.”
Chris Klimmer, Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer at SeaChange, commented: “SeaChange operates in massive markets with large and growing total addressable markets (TAMs) where we are leveraging our deep expertise, strong relationships and long operating history to capitalize on these opportunities. Our pipeline is growing, and we are encouraged by the progress we are making in each of our core operating markets. We are effectively monetizing longstanding Tier 1 relationships in cable, transitioning companies to high-upside revenue sharing models in advertising, creating new offerings through our streaming platform StreamVid, as well as introducing new innovations to support content monetization on Connected TV platforms through FAST channels, a product initiative that we branded Xstream.”
Aquino added: “SeaChange is in an increasingly strong operating position with $17.6 million in cash and no debt, a lean cost structure and growing revenue. My thorough assessment of our business not only reaffirmed but strengthened my belief that our company’s technology platform has significant value, which we are seeking to maximize through both organic and inorganic growth opportunities. Longer term, we believe our continued execution on our strategic plan will drive scale, capture market share, and create even greater value for both our customers and stockholders.”
