The Beachbody Company (NYSE: BODI) Reports Achieving Positive Turnaround In Revenue, EBITDA And Cash Flow In Q1 2024

Benzinga

By James Blacker, Benzinga Subscription health and fitness firm The Beachbody Company, Inc (NYSE: BODI) saw a significant turnaround in its financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, reporting higher revenue and adjusted EBITDA compared to the previous quarter as well as the first positive free cash flow quarter since 2020. Positive Financial Metrics The company, which now goes by BODi, reported a total revenue of $120 million for the first quarter, exceeding the midpoint of guidance. While revenue was down around 17% from $144.9 million in the same period of 2023, the figure grew from $119 million in the previous quarter – representing the first quarter-on-quarter revenue growth since 2021. BODi’s increase in revenue compared to the previous quarter was driven by a more than 7% increase in revenue from its Nutrition & Other segment, while the Digital and Connected Fitness segments saw slight dips in revenue over the same period. A key highlight for the quarter was the company’s first positive free cash flow since 2020, which was $7.4 million, compared to negative $11.3 million in the first quarter of 2023. BODi said it generated $9.1 million from operating activities in Q1 2024, in stark contrast to a cash outflow of $7.9 million from operating activities in the same period of 2023. The company also saw an inflow of $3.9 million from investing activities, compared to an outflow of $3.4 million last year. "Our net cash position increased from $3.9 million at December 31, 2023 to $14.4 million at March 31, 2024, representing approximately a $10 million improvement in our liquidity in one quarter,” noted Marc Suidan, BODi’s Chief Financial Officer. Other key financial metrics also showed positive improvements, with a substantial rise in adjusted EBITDA at $4.6 million, compared to a negative $0.9 million in the first quarter of last year. Moreover, the company narrowed its net loss to $14.2 million in the first quarter from $29.2 million in the year-ago period. BODi’s financial improvement in Q1 2024 was bolstered by a reduction in total operating expenses, which fell to $92.1 million in the first quarter from $118.8 million a year earlier. This helped slash the operating loss by $16.6 million (over 60%!), from $27.4 million to $10.8 million. Outlook For Q2 Looking ahead to the second quarter of 2024 ending June 30, BODi expects to see revenue fall within the range of $103 million to $113 million, with a net loss of between $14 million and $20 million. Adjusted EBITDA in Q2 is projected to be between negative $3 million and positive $3 million. While BODi appears to remain cautious in its Q2 outlook, the positive Q1 results mark a potential turning point for the company. The revenue growth, positive free cash flow and improved adjusted EBITDA signify robust progress in its turnaround plan. Things could be looking up for BODi, provided it can capitalize on the booming online/virtual fitness market, which is projected to grow at a CAGR of 32.7% through 2032, becoming a $250.7 billion market.

Introducing the SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art, the First Full-Frame F1.8 Zoom Lens for Mirrorless Camera Systems

SIGMA CORPORATION OF AMERICA

SIGMA Corporation of America, the US subsidiary of SIGMA Corporation (CEO: Kazuto Yamaki. Headquarters: Asao-ku, Kawasaki-shi, Kanagawa, Japan) is pleased to announce the SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art lens. This is the world's first zoom lens with a constant F1.8 aperture for full-frame mirrorless camera systems. Available for Sony E-mount and L-Mount, this new wide-to-standard zoom spans several popular focal lengths from 28mm to 45mm, with image quality comparable to prime lenses. The SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art was developed as a full-frame successor to the SIGMA 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM | Art (for APS-C DSLR cameras), which in 2013 became the first lens in the world to achieve F1.8 throughout the entire zoom range. While offering the convenience of a zoom, this new lens does not compromise on optical performance. By effectively arranging 3 aspherical lens elements and 5 SLD glass elements, this lens suppresses various aberrations and achieves performance comparable to single focal length lenses, even surpassing the SIGMA 24mm F1.4 DG DN | Art and SIGMA 50mm F1.4 DG DN | Art, which have an established reputation for their optical quality. In particular, the 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art focuses on suppressing axial chromatic aberration, which is often noticeable in large-aperture lenses, to achieve images with minimal coloration on both the focus plane and bokeh, and to demonstrate high optical performance from open aperture. The minimum focusing distance is 30cm (11.8 inches) throughout the entire range, and the maximum magnification ratio of 1:4 is achieved at the 45mm focal length. Featuring internal zoom and HLA (High-response Linear Actuator) autofocus, and an optical design that minimizes focus breathing, the SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art is well-suited for video work, including gimbal setups, thanks to its balanced design. The click/de-click switch and lockable aperture ring are designed to suit a variety of personal capture preferences, and the dust- and splash-resistant design also makes it suitable for shooting stills and video out in the elements. The SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art lens will be available for $1,349 through authorized retailers in the US in late June 2024. Learn more at the SIGMA America website: https://www.sigmaphoto.com/28-45mm-f1-8-dg-dn-a Exclusively for mirrorless cameras | Compatible with full-frame cameras A | Art SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art The world's first* F1.8 full-frame mirrorless zoom. *as of June 2024 by SIGMA The world's first* full-frame, F1.8 maximum aperture zoom lens Excellent optical performance comparable to that of a prime lens High-speed AF and innovative features Supplied accessories: CASE, LENS HOOD LH878-06, FRONT CAP LCF-82 III, REAR CAP LCR Available mounts: L-Mount, Sony E-mount Launch date: June 20, 2024 * Product appearance and specifications are subject to change. * This product is developed, manufactured and sold based on the specifications of E-mount which was disclosed by Sony Corporation under the license agreement with Sony Corporation. * L-Mount is a registered trademark of Leica Camera AG. #SIGMA #SIGMA2845mmF18Art #SIGMAArt #SIGMAArtZoom #SIGMADGDN The SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art is the world's first full-frame zoom lens with a constant maximum aperture of F1.8, delivering sharpness and clarity comparable to that of a prime lens. Already the pioneer of unique, large-aperture zoom lenses including the SIGMA 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM | Art and the SIGMA 24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art, SIGMA introduces another fast, portable and versatile tool to its Art lineup. In addition to its unprecedented brightness, the SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art delivers sharpness and clarity comparable to that of a prime lens throughout its entire zoom range. Also equipped with fast and precise AF and superior operability, this innovative optic turns a new page in the history of zoom lenses and their creative possibilities. It is a lens that will inspire full-frame filmmakers, while bringing unparalleled versatility to stills photographers. * As of June 2024 by SIGMA [Key Features] 1. The world's first* full-frame, F1.8 maximum aperture zoom lens SIGMA has successfully developed the world's first full-frame zoom lens with a maximum aperture of F1.8. The SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art incorporates an inner zoom mechanism, a minimum focusing distance of 30cm across the entire zoom range, and a filter size of φ82mm. Despite its advanced feature-set, the lens weighs less than 1kg, making it a portable and versatile option for either hand-held shooting or a gimbal setup. Constant maximum aperture of F1.8 Once a privilege reserved only for prime lenses, the maximum F1.8 aperture allows full-frame camera users to expose hand-held in low light and produce beautiful bokeh, while enjoying the flexibility of a zoom. This unique optical achievement has been created through SIGMA's accumulated optical design experience and advanced production technology at the company's sole production base in Aizu, Japan. Practical and stable inner zoom Employing an inner zoom mechanism, the overall length of the lens remains constant when the focal length or focus distance changes. This means the lens is easy to use when shooting hand-held, highly stable when mounted on a tripod or gimbal, and more resistant to dust and water contamination. Consistent close focus The minimum focusing distance is a constant 30cm across the entire zoom range, with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4 at the telephoto end, providing excellent close-up shooting capabilities. As well as offering precise focus in confined spaces, the lens can therefore be used close to a subject without affecting sharpness when using the zoom. Premium build at a lighter weight By rights, such a fast zoom should be big and heavy, but while the lens's rigidity and durability protect its sophisticated optical design, this is achieved at a weight of less than 1kg. What's more, this reliable photographic tool uses a versatile filter size of φ82mm, meaning no compromise in portability or convenience. 2. Excellent optical performance comparable to that of a prime lens With each optical aberration meticulously corrected throughout the zoom range, the SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art rivals prime lenses for clarity and definition. Thanks to its advanced coatings, the lens produces clear images, even in backlit environments, while focus breathing is thoroughly suppressed, bringing expressive power to filmmakers and photographers. The pinnacle of optical quality in a zoom Through the effective arrangement of 5 SLD elements and 3 aspherical elements, aberrations are rigorously corrected. Axial chromatic aberration, which is particularly noticeable with large-aperture lenses, has been thoroughly suppressed, and the lens delivers clear images with minimal coloration, from sharply focused details to large, smooth bokeh. Suppression of focus breathing When using regular lenses, the angle-of-view can change as focus moves from near to far, affecting precise composition. With the SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art this focus breathing is suppressed, enabling natural focus pulls when shooting video. Minimal flare and ghosting Flare and ghosting, which reduce image quality, have been largely eliminated using advanced simulation technology, ensuring the lens renders rich, high-contrast results in all conditions. In addition, in order to keep flare and ghosting to a minimum, the lens uses SIGMA's Nano Porous Coating and Super Multi-Layer Coating, producing superior resistance to backlighting and enabling clear, saturated images in all lighting conditions. 3. High-speed AF speed and innovative features The SIGMA 28-45mm F1.8 DG DN | Art delivers a range of professional features as impressive as its outstanding optical performance. With high-speed and adaptable AF, a durable weather-resistant structure, a de-clickable aperture ring, smooth manual focusing and on-barrel AFL buttons, all features combine to create a versatile photographic tool capable of responding to any situation. Faster focus with a linear motor The lens's AF mechanism uses an HLA (High-response Linear Actuator) to combine accelerated focusing speed with exquisite precision. And because the motor is near-silent it allows video recording without noise. Precise and comfortable manual focusing To deliver delicate and accurate manual focus, the lens employs a bi-wire driven focus ring with optimum torque setting, high resolution and an adjustable rotation angle between 90° and 720°*. This allows filmmakers to pull focus with organic smoothness, and photographers to focus manually with outstanding accuracy. * Only for L-Mount, and with compatible cameras. Aperture ring refinements The lens is equipped with an aperture ring as well as an aperture ring click switch and an aperture ring lock switch, allowing for aperture operation suitable for various shooting situations. Equipped with two AFL buttons Located on the side and on top of the barrel, two customizable* AFL buttons can be easily reached in either horizontal or vertical shooting positions. * Assignment of functions is limited to supported cameras and assignable functions vary depending on the camera. Built to withstand the elements In addition to a dust- and splash-resistant body*, the frontmost surface of the lens is coated with a water- and oil-repellent coating so that it can be used safely even in harsh outdoor environments. * The product is designed to be dust- and splash-resistant but is not waterproof. When using the lens near water, etc., take care not to allow large amounts of water to splash on it. If water gets inside the lens, it may cause a major malfunction and render the lens unrepairable. Includes locking petal-type hood A petal-type hood is included to shield the lens from light. It has a locking mechanism for secure attachment and can be reversed for easier storage. [ Additional Features ] Lens construction: 18 elements in 15 groups (5 SLD, 3 aspherical elements) Inner zoom Inner focus system High-speed AF HLA (High-response Linear Actuator) Compatible with Lens Aberration Correction * Only cameras that are compatible with the function are allowed to use this function.

Tron and Ethereum Lose Momentum, Raboo Set To Surge 10x in June

Total Media

Although the crypto market is generally bullish, popular tokens like Tron and Ethereum are not performing as expected. Tron's protracted legal battles with the SEC and the delay in the official trading of the Ethereum ETF have been identified as probable causes. Meanwhile, investors remain confident in the revolutionary memetoken Raboo (RABT), which is currently gaining momentum in its presale, with over $1.5 million worth of the token sold already. Also, with a potential to surge by 10x in June, Raboo is rapidly becoming one of the best cryptos to invest in this year. Tron’s legal battles slow down momentum after price slump Tron continues to face significant legal challenges from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC lawsuit against Tron, which has slowed down its market activity, alleges that Tron's TRX token is a security. The SEC further claimed that the sales of these tokens were not legal since they are unregistered securities offerings. Tron has firmly disputed these claims, stating that the SEC's allegations are "tenuous at best." Furthermore, Tron claims that the SEC is not a "worldwide regulator" and that its attempt to apply U.S. securities laws to "predominantly foreign conduct" goes "too far." This stance is consistent with the firm's headquarters being in Singapore. The ongoing legal challenges have impacted Tron's momentum given that Tron has been down by more than 6% for a month. Crypto analysts have identified its ongoing legal battles as the root of this decline, given that investors have become increasingly cautious about investing in Tron’s platform with the ongoing regulatory issues. Ethereum’s ETF trading delay slows price growth Ethereum's recent rally has fizzled out, indicating a loss of momentum even though backers of the project continue to affirm that it is still one of the best crypto to invest in this year. The token is expected to witness increased trading activity due to the approval of spot Ethereum exchange-traded funds (ETFs) by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), however, the ETFs are yet to commence trading officially as investors await the respective Form S-1 approval for each fund. This development has led crypto analysts to speculate that the uncertainty that accompanies such inactive moments could spell trouble for Ethereum's price, particularly given the high futures open interest that rose to its highest level ever on May 28. The recent approval of 19b-4s forms issued by the Ethereum ETF issuers does not mean that trading in Ethereum ETFs has begun. The S-1 forms, which include detailed financial and risk information, are yet to be approved by the SEC and could take weeks. This delay in trading has contributed to the lack of market activity which has slowed down growth and has led crypto analysts to believe that Ethereum would continue to lose momentum in the meantime. Raboo tipped to 10X in June as AI meme coin surges on massive adoption Raboo, the new AI meme coin, is expected to surge 10x in June, according to analysts. This prediction is based on the token's unique social-fi model, which allows holders to earn extra tokens by competing in challenges and giveaways. Crypto enthusiasts also stand the chance to earn returns by engaging the platform. Raboo's integration of AI technology continues to drive its growth, positioning it as one of the best altcoins to buy in 2024. While massive purchase of its presale token that has now exceeded the $1.5 million mark is projected to inspire a 10x surge in June, crypto analysts have also predicted that Raboo's price will grow 233% during the presale and 100x on launch day. This rapid growth is attributed to the token's innovative features that are designed to attract memecoin enthusiasts. Raboo's surge in June is expected to be 10x after being tipped as the best altcoin to buy in 2024. Raboo is well-positioned to become one of the best altcoins in the industry as more crypto enthusiasts join the platform, increasing its strong community while its innovative features continue to captivate investors. Investors looking for a high-growth opportunity should consider Raboo, which is expected to 100x this year. Conclusion Tron and Ethereum continue to face challenges amidst ongoing lawsuits and reduced trading activity that has inspired a loss of momentum for both tokens. Meanwhile, Raboo, an innovative memecoin that has been tipped as the best crypto to buy in 2024, continues to attract more investors after record surge positioning it for massive returns in June and lucrative returns for investors upon launch.
