Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • As discussed above, on October 1, 2019, the Company acquired Oblong Industries, and Oblong Industries became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Prior to the acquisition of Oblong Industries on October 1, 2019, the Company operated in one segment. Effective October 1, 2019, the former businesses of Glowpoint (now Oblong, Inc.) and Oblong Industries were
  • managed separately during the fourth quarter of 2019 and the year ended December 31, 2020, and involved different products and services. Accordingly, the Company currently operates in two segments: (1) the Oblong (formerly Glowpoint) business which mainly consists of managed services for video collaboration and network and (2) the Oblong Industries business which consists of products and services for visual collaboration technologies.
  • Because the closing of the acquisition of Oblong Industries occurred on October 1, 2019, the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2019 included in this Report only reflect Oblong Industries’ financial results for the fourth quarter of 2019. Certain information concerning the Company’s segments for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, is presented in the following table (in thousands):
