“Everything starts with trusted identity. We started 2019 by enhancing our suite of mobile biometric solutions to include Proof, our new identity verification solution, and to make Proof and Verified easily accessible through the Ipsidy Identity Portal without any integration,” said Philip Beck, Chairman and CEO of Ipsidy. “Our identity platform offers mobile biometric services that work great on their own and even better together. We look forward to more customers and users and to growing our platform revenue over the year as we focus in on our active sales pipeline.”
Ipisdy continued to make progress in executing our strategy, building our team, enhancing our identity transaction platform, establishing sales channels and launching our new identity solutions across several vertical and international markets, including the following activities:
- Continued to develop our frictionless IP Camera solution to enhance our Access™ solution by leveraging our Ayonix license and allowing for edge processing of facial biometric extraction, tracking and matching.
- Launched VerifiedTM Portal with Safetrade’s Xpressa Payment Solutions in South Africa, to quickly identify merchant customers of its online payment gateway and to authorize account profile changes. Verified helped Xpressa enhance its security, increase productivity and improve customer service.
- Launched ProofTM, our new identity proofing solution, available through Ipsidy’s new Identity Portal and via integration. Our partner, Datapro, has modified its e-IBS core banking solution and digital onboarding module to include Proof, which is available to Datapro’s 160 plus financial institutions with millions of account holders in 31 countries.
- Signed agreement with REMCAP to roll out AccessTM, our out-of-the-box solution for physical access management, to their customers across the United States, including religious institutions, schools and other non-profit organizations.
- Working with RemoteLok to produce a combined solution comprising RemoteLok’s EdgeState platform and Ipsidy’s Access™, to enable biometrically authenticated, authorized users to open door locks, with a blink and a smile.
- Added Noftek to the Ipsidy Partner Network in order to offer Proof and Verified as part of its suite of data protection and IT security solutions in the Caribbean market.
- Announced agreement with Mobile Solutions Peru to launch Ipsidy solutions in Peru and Chile, with the first customer, Boxer Security, adopting our Access solution and its mobile facial biometric application to verify employee location and attendance for their thousands of security personnel working at hundreds of client facilities around Peru.

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 (stock options and restricted stock) and (6) certain other items management believes affect the comparability of operating results. Please see Table 1 below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
