Ipsidy Announces Results for Third Quarter 2018


LONG BEACH, New York, Nov. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ipsidy Inc. (www.ipsidy.com)  (OTCQX: IDTY), a provider of secure, biometric identification, identity management and electronic transaction processing services, today announced its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. 

Financial Highlights for the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018

  • Total revenue for the three and nine-month periods was $0.7 million and $3.1 million respectively compared to $0.6 million and $1.8 million respectively for the three and nine months in 2017.  The increase in revenue for the nine-month period reflected the successful completion of the supply of Search, our Automated Fingerprint Identification System and related services to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission ("ZEC").

  • Net loss for the three and nine months was $2.1 million and $7.4 million respectively compared to a net loss of $2.1 million and $14.6 million respectively for the three and nine months in 2017.  In 2017, the satisfaction of notes payable in the first quarter resulted in a charge of approximately $4.1 million.

  • Basic and fully diluted net loss per share for the three and nine months in 2018 was $0.00 and $0.02 cents respectively compared to basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.01 and $0.04 cents respectively for the three and nine months in 2017. 

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three and nine months in 2018 was $1.1 million and $4.4 million respectively compared to $1.2 million and $4.1 million respectively in 2017. Adjusted EBITDA loss for the nine-month period increased approximately $0.3 million due to the increased investment in salary and technology expense, as the Company expanded its infrastructure to support future operations and in addition incurred a $0.5 million charge principally for the write-down in the value of legacy kiosks, offset by the revenue earned from the sale of our Search system to ZEC.

  • In August 2018, the Company received subscriptions, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $9.6 million, by the issuance of approximately 64.1 million shares of Common Stock at $0.15 per share.    The Theodore Stern Revocable Trust (the "Stern Trust") invested $1 million in this round.  Mr. Theodore Stern, one of the directors of our Company, is the trustee of the Stern Trust.

  • In August 2018, the Company decided to partially prepay $1,000,000 of principal and approximately $158,000 of accrued interest, out of the $3,000,000 Note dated February 1, 2017 held by the Stern Trust.

Over the past 18 months, we have continued to strengthen our bench and our management team.  We have developed a clear strategy for taking advantage of the tremendous opportunity in the Identity as a Service vertical and are hard at work executing on our strategy.  We have a suite of exciting services and solutions, operating on a new platform that we have built, tested and piloted over the past 18 months.  We believe that we are one of the few companies that can addresses biometric access control and security in both physical and digital environments from a single platform, using a single mobile application across multiple customers and their users. Ipsidy's platform is flexible, scalable, can be accessed by our customers in different markets and verticals and operated by our operations team and will support a growing, repeatable and recurring revenue stream.

Innovation is critical to our success and our recently announced partnership with Ayonix highlights our approach of integrating third-party technologies into our identity platform.  By combining the high-speed performance and edge device detection capabilities of Ayonix 3D FaceID software with our Access by Ipsidy solution, we are creating a frictionless experience using existing IP camera technology for employees, residents, patients, students and visitors accessing a perimeter or building. At the same time we are providing the operator with secure, real time, access control and identity management system, managed from a portable low cost tablet.

We have also been hard at work adding additional services to our platform including verification of identity, a service requested by many financial institutions.  We have also developed other biometric protected solutions that are available to our customers, without the need for them to undertake any development or integration and can be used by simply logging into our portal.

Following on from our work with partners, we have responded to customer feedback, enhanced our products and are now focusing our attention and efforts on marketing and sales, in different markets. The activities for the quarter reflect our emphasis on product delivery and ensuring that our customers' needs will be met.  We are targeting end user enterprises as well as resellers (e.g. integrators and value-added resellers) for our services, as these organizations demand a high level of quality, security and service for their customers.  In so doing we believe that this will help us achieve and maintain the high standards necessary to satisfy all customers. 

"We have made tremendous strides over the last 18 months and are firmly on the road towards achieving our strategic objectives," said Philip Beck, Chairman and CEO of Ipsidy.  "Our partnership with Ayonix, announced yesterday, highlights our approach of integrating third-party technologies into our identity platform. We are excited by the possibilities opened up by our new services. Our recently announced implementations of both Access and Verified are, we believe, just the start and if things go according to plan, we look forward to announcing many more customer implementations and users accessing the system over the coming quarters, with corresponding revenue."

Operational Highlights

The Company continued to make progress in executing our strategy, building the team, enhancing our identity transaction platform and establishing sales channels to support the launch of our new identity solutions across several vertical and international markets, including the following activities: 

  • Added to our engineering, QA and operations teams and recruited experienced new management.  These new resources are experienced in building and operating scalable platforms in the mobile world and manage both internal and external development and QA teams, which are building and maintaining our systems. 
  • Launch of Access, our out-of-the-box Identity as a Service solution for access management. Using just a tablet and a Bluetooth beacon and requiring no integration or expensive hardware, Access delivers a highly secure, yet low-cost, biometric access solution to protect the perimeter and create a trusted environment.
  • First implementation of Verified in Panama with Datapro and Unibank. Our biometric multi-factor authentication solution was integrated into Datapro's e-IBS core banking software and therefore becomes available to all of the financial institutions who use Datapro's hosted software solution.  Datapro services over 160 financial institutions in 31 countries.
  • We have bolstered the sales and marketing team with new management.  Our agreements with Safetrade Africa and New Image Building Services to resell our services and solutions in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, highlight our focus on reseller channels to market our products.
  • Signed terms with Ayonix Face Technologies to work together to enhance our Access product with their high-speed 3D facial recognition technology.

Non-GAAP Financial Information.

The Company provides certain non-GAAP financial measures in this statement. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA, when viewed with our results under GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, provides useful information about our period-over-period results. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because management believes it provides additional information with respect to the performance of our fundamental business activities and is also frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of comparable companies. We also rely on Adjusted EBITDA as a primary measure to review and assess the operating performance of our company and our management team in connection with our executive compensation. These non-GAAP key business indicators, which include Adjusted EBITDA, should not be considered replacements for and should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as GAAP net loss adjusted to exclude: (1) interest expense, (2) interest income, (3) provision for income taxes, (4) depreciation and amortization, (5) stock-based compensation expense (6) derivative income (expense) and (7) certain other items management believes affect the comparability of operating results. Please see "Adjusted EBITDA" below for more information and for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
