PART I—FINANC IAL INFORMATION

Item 1. Financial Sta tements (Unaudited)

Unaudited Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

We have prepared our unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements included herein pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States have been condensed or omitted pursuant to these rules and regulations, although we believe that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. In our opinion, the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly, in all material respects, our consolidated financial position as of March 31, 2019, the interim results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, changes in equity for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. Operating results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for a full year or any future interim period. These interim statements have not been audited. The balance sheet as of December 31, 2018, was derived from our audited consolidated financial statements included in our annual report on Form 10-K. The interim condensed consolidated financial statements contained herein should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Notes to interim condensed cons olidated financial statements

References in this report to “we”, “us”, “our” or “Gaia” refer to Gaia, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries, unless we indicate otherwise.

1. Organization, Nature of Operations, and Principles of Consolidation

Gaia, Inc., was incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado in 1988 and operates a global digital video subscription service and on-line community that caters to a unique and underserved subscriber base. Our digital content library includes approximately 8,000 English language titles as well as a growing selection of titles available in French, German, and Spanish. Our subscribers have unlimited access to a vast library of inspiring films, cutting-edge documentaries, interviews, yoga classes, transformation-related content, and more – 85% of which is exclusively available to our subscribers for digital streaming on most internet-connected devices anytime, anywhere, commercial free.

Our mission is to create a transformational network that empowers a global conscious community. Content on our network is currently curated into four channels, Yoga, Transformation, Alternative Healing, and Seeking Truth, and delivered directly to our subscribers through our streaming platform. We curate programming for these channels by producing content in our in-house production studios with a staff of media professionals. This produced and owned content currently represents over 80% of our viewership. We complement our produced and owned content through long-term, predominately exclusive, licensing agreements.

We have prepared the accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and they include our accounts and those of our subsidiaries. Intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods disclosed in this report are not necessarily indicative of future financial results.

There have been no material changes in our significant accounting policies, other than the adoption of accounting pronouncements below, as compared to the significant accounting policies described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Use of Estimates and Reclassifications

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the accompanying financial statements and disclosures. Although we base these estimates on our best knowledge of current events and actions that we may undertake in the future, actual results may be different from the estimates. We have made certain reclassifications to prior period amounts to conform to the current period presentations.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases must be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The new standard did not have a material impact on our reported financial position or results of operations in the three months ended March 31, 2019.

We have reviewed all the recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements and we do not believe any of these pronouncements will have a material impact on us.

Discontinued Operations

In the first quarter of 2019, we reclassified our legacy DVD subscription club as a discontinued operation and have presented the related operations in discontinued operations on the accompanying statement of operations. There were no assets or liabilities associated with this club in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

2. Revenue Recognition

 

Revenues consist primarily of subscription fees paid by our customers. We present revenues net of taxes collected from customers. Subscribers are billed in advance and revenues are recognized ratably over the subscription term. Deferred revenues consist of subscription fees collected from customers that have not been earned and are recognized ratably over the remaining term of the subscription. We recognize revenue on a net basis for relationships where our partners have the primary relationship, including billing and service delivery, with the subscriber. Payments made to partners to assist in promoting our service on their platforms are expensed as marketing expenses in the period incurred. We do not allow access to our service to be provided as part of a bundle by any of our partners.

 

3. Equity and Share-Based Compensation

During the first three months of 2019 and 2018, we recognized $594,000 and $254,000, respectively, of associated stock compensation expense. Total share-based compensation expense is reported in selling and operating expenses and corporate, general and administration expenses on our condensed consolidated statements of operations.

4. Net Loss per Share

Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is computed by giving effect to all potential shares of common stock, including stock options and restricted stock units, to the extent dilutive. Basic and diluted net loss per share were the same for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, as the inclusion of all potential common shares outstanding would have been anti-dilutive.

5. Income Taxes

Our provision for income taxes is comprised of the following:

Total income tax benefit

 

$

 

 

$

(1,826

)

The income tax benefit recorded during 2018 is a result of our historical alternative minimum tax payments becoming fully refundable in 2018. Periodically, we perform assessments of the realization of our net deferred tax assets considering all available evidence, both positive and negative. Based on our historical operating losses, combined with our plans to continue to invest in our revenue growth and generate losses for the next few years, we have a full valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets. As of March 31, 2019, our gross net operating loss carryforwards were $82.8 million and $23.3 million for federal and state, respectively.

6. Contingencies

From time to time, we are involved in legal proceedings that we consider to be in the normal course of business. We record accruals for losses related to those matters against us that we consider to be probable and that can be reasonably estimated. Based on available information, in the opinion of management, settlements, arbitration awards and final judgments, if any, that are considered probable of being rendered against us in litigation or arbitration in existence at March 31, 2019, and that can be reasonably estimated are either reserved against or would not have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

7. Subsequent Events

On April 26, 2019, we repaid and replaced the line of credit of our wholly owned subsidiary Boulder Road LLC with a $17.0 million term loan agreement with BDS III Mortgage Capital B LLC, as lender.  The term loan bears interest at a fixed spread over LIBOR, matures on May 1, 2022, and is secured by, our corporate campus and is guaranteed by Gaia. Boulder Road’s financial statements are included within our consolidated financial statements; however, Boulder Road’s assets and credit are only available to pay its own debts and obligations and are not available to satisfy the debts or obligations of any other entity.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Forward-Looking Statements

This report contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. When used in this discussion, we intend the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “plan,” “estimate,” “expect,” “strive,” “future,” “intend”, “will” and similar expressions as they relate to us to identify such forward-looking statements. Our actual results could differ materially from the results anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors referenced under “Risk Factors,” “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and elsewhere in this Form 10‑Q. Risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ include, without limitation, general economic conditions, ongoing losses, competition, loss of key personnel, pricing, brand reputation, acquisitions, new initiatives we undertake, security and information systems, legal liability for website content, failure of third parties to provide adequate service, future internet-related taxes, our founder’s control of us, litigation, fluctuations in quarterly operating results, consumer trends, the effect of government regulation and programs and other risks and uncertainties included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We caution you that no forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance, and you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which reflect our views only as of the date of this report. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking information.

You should read the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes referenced elsewhere in this document. This section is designed to provide information that will assist in understanding our condensed consolidated financial statements, changes in certain items in those statements from period to period, the primary factors that caused those changes and how certain accounting principles, policies and estimates affect the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Overview and Outlook

We operate a global digital video subscription service with a library of approximately 8,000 English-language titles as well as a growing selection of titles available in French, German, and Spanish, that caters to a unique, underserved subscriber base. Our digital content is available to our subscribers on most internet-connected devices anytime, anywhere, commercial-free. Through our online Gaia subscription service, our subscribers have unlimited access to a library of inspiring films, cutting-edge documentaries, interviews, yoga classes, transformation related content, and more, all available to our subscribers for digital streaming on most internet-connected devices. A subscription also allows our subscribers to download files from our library and view them later without being actively connected to the internet.

Consumption of streaming video is expanding rapidly as more and more people augment their use of, or replace broadcast television and turn to, streaming video to watch their favorite content on services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, HBO Now and Gaia.

Gaia’s position in the streaming video landscape is firmly supported by its wide variety of exclusive and unique content, which provides a complementary offering to other entertainment-based streaming video services. Our original content is developed and produced in-house in our production studios near Boulder, Colorado. Over 85% of our content is available for streaming exclusively on Gaia. By offering exclusive and unique content through our streaming service, we believe we will be able to significantly expand our target subscriber base.

Our available content is currently focused on yoga, transformation, alternative healing, seeking truth and conscious films. This content is specifically targeted to a unique customer base that is interested in alternatives and supplements to the content provided by mainstream media. We have grown these content options both organically through our own productions and through strategic acquisitions. In addition, through our investments in our streaming video technology and our user interface, we have expanded the many ways our subscription customer base can access our unique library of media titles.

Our core strategy is to grow our subscription business domestically and internationally by expanding our unique and exclusive content library, enhancing our user interface, extending our streaming service to new internet-connected devices as they are developed and creating a conscious community built on our content.

We are a Colorado corporation. Our principal and executive office is located at 833 West South Boulder Road, Suite G, Louisville, CO 80027-2452. Our telephone number at that address is (303) 222-3600. We maintain a website at www.gaia.com. The website address has been included only as a textual reference. Our website and the information contained on that website, or connected to that website, are not incorporated by reference into this Form 10-Q.

Three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to three months ended March 31, 2018

Revenues, net. Revenues increased $3.4 million, or 37.4%, to $12.5 million during the first quarter of 2019 from $9.1 million during the first quarter of 2018. The increase in revenues was primarily driven by our growth in the number of paying subscribers.

Cost of revenues . Cost of revenues increased $0.4 million, or 33.3%, to $1.6 million during the first quarter of 2019 from $1.2 million during the first quarter of 2018 and, as a percentage of revenues, decreased slightly to 12.8% during the first quarter of 2019 compared to 12.9% during the first quarter of 2018, primarily due to the lower cost of streaming associated with our higher volumes and an increase in revenue.

Selling and operating expenses . Selling and operating expenses increased $1.2 million, or 8.3%, to $15.7 million during the first quarter of 2019 from $14.5 million during the first quarter of 2018 and, as a percentage of revenues, decreased to 126.1% during the first quarter of 2019 from 158.9% during the first quarter of 2018. The decrease as a percentage of revenue was primarily due to growth in revenue offset to a lesser extent by increased marketing spending for subscriber acquisition.

Corporate, general and administration expenses . Corporate, general and administration expenses increased $0.2 million, or 14.3%, to   $1.6 million during the first quarter of 2019 from $1.4 million during the first quarter of 2018, and as a percentage of revenues, decreased to 12.8% during the first quarter of 2019 from 15.4% during the first quarter of 2018.

Net loss . As a result of the above factors, net loss was $6.7 million, or $0.38 per share, during the first quarter of 2019 compared to a net loss of $6.0 million, or $0.39 per share, during the first quarter of 2018.

Seasonality

Our subscriber growth exhibits a seasonal pattern that reflects variations when consumers typically spend more time indoors and, as a

result, tend to increase their viewing, similar to those of traditional TV and cable networks. Our subscriber growth is generally greatest

during October through February and slowest in May through August. As we continue to expand internationally, we expect

regional seasonality trends to demonstrate more predictable seasonal patterns as our service offering in each market becomes more

established and we have a longer history to assess such patterns.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our capital needs arise from working capital required to fund operations, capital expenditures related to acquisition and development of media content, development and marketing of our digital platforms, acquisitions of new businesses and other investments, replacements, expansions and improvements to our infrastructure, and future growth. These capital requirements depend on numerous factors, including the rate of market acceptance of our offerings, our ability to expand our customer base, the cost of ongoing upgrades to our offerings, our level of expenditures for marketing, and other factors. Additionally, we will continue to pursue opportunities to expand our media libraries, evaluate possible investments in businesses and technologies, and increase our marketing programs as needed. At March 31, 2019, our cash balance was $22.3 million. We estimate that our capital expenditures, including investments in our media library, will total approximately $8.0 million to $12.0 million for the remainder of 2019, which will be funded through our available cash balance, cash expected to be generated from operations and the increased borrowing under our new term loan facility as disclosed in Note 7 to the condensed consolidated financial statements in Item 1 of the Form 10-Q.

We have an active shelf registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission under which 2,316,667 shares of our Class A common stock are currently available for issuance.

In the normal course of our business, we investigate, evaluate and discuss acquisition, joint venture, minority investment, strategic relationship and other business combination opportunities in our market. For any future investment, acquisition or joint venture opportunities, we may consider using then-available liquidity, issuing equity securities or incurring indebtedness.

While there can be no assurances, we believe our cash on hand, cash expected to be generated from operations, cash that could be raised by the sale of our stock, and current and potential borrowing capabilities should be sufficient to fund our operations on both a short-term and long-term basis. However, our projected cash needs may change as a result of acquisitions, product development, unforeseen operational difficulties or other factors.

As of March 31, 2019 we had $12.5 million drawn down on our line of credit secured by our real estate. This facility was repaid in connection with our new term loan facility, as disclosed in Note 7 to the condensed consolidated financial statements in Item 1 of this Form 10-Q.

Operating activities . Cash flow used in continuing operations improved $0.1 million during the first three months of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. The improvement was primarily due to decreased operating losses in 2019 and favorable working capital dynamics from the growth in recurring subscriber revenues.

Investing activities . Cash flow used in investing activities increased $0.9 million during the first three months of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018 primarily due to increased investment in our media library.

Financing activities . Cash flow from financing activities decreased $24.8 during the first three months of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018 , as we did not undertake financing activities d uring the first three months of 2019 while in 2018 we sold shares of our Class A c ommon stock and repaid our line of credit .
