Recent News & Updates
SeaChange: Tough Times Ahead After Termination Of Triller Reverse Merger Agreement
Discussing last week's mutual termination of the company's reverse merger agreement with Triller. SeaChange will neither be entitled to the $4 million termination fee specified in the merger agreement nor reimbursed for costs incurred in conjunction with the transaction. Going forward, SeaChange will be back on its own in an increasingly difficult market for the company's core video and advertising products. While recent Q1 results showed some top and bottom line progress on a year-over-year basis, the company will likely be challenged to achieve sustainable growth and positive free cash flow going forward. Remaining liquidity should be sufficient for up to another three years, so still plenty of time for management to engineer a sustainable turnaround. I am reiterating my "neutral" rating on the shares for now.

Forecasted Software industry annual growth in earnings
In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit. But as SeaChange International has not provided enough past data and has no analyst forecast, its future earnings cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst predictions.
This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by SimplyWall St do have past financial data.
