Q3 2023 Non-GAAP operating income of $28.6 million, a decrease of 5.9% over Q3 2022 Non-GAAP operating income of $30.4 million Ebix delivered the following results for the third quarter of 2023: Revenue: Exchanges, including all financial and insurance exchanges, continued to be Ebix’s largest channel, accounting for 83.2% of Q3 2023 revenues. (dollar amounts in thousands) % Note – Q3 2022 Revenues are non-GAAP with all revenues normalized on a net basis, for comparative purposes. Operating Income: GAAP operating income for Q3 2023 of $20.5 million decreased by 32.4% year-over-year from $30.4 million in Q3 2022, primarily due to certain IPO marketing costs, and restructuring related cost. GAAP operating income of $80.1 million for nine-month ended Q3 2023 decreased by 11.5% as compared to $90.6 million in nine-month ended Q3 2022. Earnings per Share and Net Income: Q3 2023 GAAP diluted earnings per share was at ($0.33) compared to $0.59 in Q3 2022. The decrease was primarily due to increased interest cost of $28.2 million, an increase of 82.2% year-over-year, a foreign exchange differential loss of $2.5 million, debt restructuring cost of $4.4 million as compared to Q3 2022, a cumulative negative effect of $0.64 in diluted earnings per share. Q3 2023 GAAP net loss was $10.3 million compared to net income of $18.3 million in Q3 2022, primarily on account of the above increased non-operating costs and lower operating income. Q4 2023 Diluted Share Count: As of today, Ebix expects its diluted share count for Q4 2023 to be approximately 30.9 million. Amit Kumar Garg, CFO added, “In Q3 2023, EBITDA plus noncash stock compensation added to $28.3 million, which translates to approximately 23.7% of our worldwide revenues. During the nine month period ended September 30, 2023, we had the following major cash uses amongst other cash uses for operations: (i) $58.9 million of cash interest paid; (ii) $31.1 million for income-related taxes paid globally, (iii) $15 million paid for principal payments (iv) $11.1 million was used for capital expenditure and (v) $ 1.1 million was used for software development. We funded these initiatives from existing cash plus operating cash flows generated during the year. Despite these substantial payments adding to $117.2 million just for these items, the Company had strong liquidity on hand with cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments, and restricted cash of $ 99.2 million.” Robin Raina, President & CEO, Ebix, Inc. said. “These are difficult times for the Company. In spite of that, the Company’s operating results after excluding the one-time items are consistent with our expectations. Our revenues on a YTD constant currency basis grew 13% YOY while the Q3 2023 revenues grew marginally in line with our expectations, even after deemphasizing our focus on certain lower margin businesses in Q3 of 2023. We intend to keep our focus on higher margin businesses in coming quarters with the stated goal of growing the top line and the operating income in tandem.” Reconciliation of GAAP operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share to non-GAAP operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share.

Non-GAAP operating income , non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from operations exclude amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation, as well as certain non-recurring expenses that are not associated with our ongoing operating business activities. Ebix believes that these non-GAAP financial measures and other metrics provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Ebix’s financial condition and results of operations. The Company’s management uses these non-GAAP measures and other metrics to compare the Company’s performance to that of prior periods for trend analysis, for purposes of determining executive and senior management incentive compensation, and for budgeting and planning purposes. The Company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures and other metrics provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other software companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures and other metrics to investors. Management of the Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. Ebix urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results, including the financial tables at the end of this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.
