Ipsidy Announces Results for First Quarter Ended March 31, 2020 — Building Trusted Identity

LONG BEACH, N.Y., May 11, 2020 — Ipsidy Inc. (www.ipsidy.com) [OTCQB:IDTY] which operates an Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform that delivers a suite of secure, mobile, biometric identity solutions, available to any vertical, anywhere, today announced its results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2020

  • Total revenue for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020 was $0.8 million compared to $0.7 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019.
  • Net loss for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020 was $3.8 million compared to a net loss of $2.3 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to non-cash charges totaling approximately $1.8 million relating to the impact of Covid-19 on our South African business and certain borrowings.
  • Basic and fully diluted net loss per share for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020 was $0.01 cents compared to basic and fully diluted net loss per share of $0.0 cents for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss for three-month period ended March 31, 2020 was $1.3 million compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.6 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, principally as a result of reduced compensation expense.
  • Secured approximately $1.5 million of convertible debt investment in February 2020

 

Refer to Table 1 for reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure).

 

Everything starts with trusted identity. Our identity platform offers a suite of mobile biometric identity services that our customers can use to verify identity (ProofTM) and authenticate transactions (Verified™) across multiple use cases, thereby creating trusted transactions. Since the beginning of 2020, we continued to make progress in executing our Trusted Identity strategy and enhancing our product suite to meet market demand.

 

Our development team extended the IDaaS platform to include validation of US, Canadian and Mexican driver’s licenses against a trusted database, that supplement our current platform capabilities, providing NFC verification of e-passports as well as biometric verification with trusted national identity registries. Proof by Ipsidy will now seamlessly authenticate a customer’s license and prove its possession by the rightful owner, using our facial biometric services with liveness confirmation. With this enhancement North American businesses can benefit from a higher level of identity assurance. We also expect to launch in Q2 2020, the expanded delivery of our identity verification services via a mobile web browser, offering a seamless user experience.

 

The identity solutions market is rapidly developing and increasing demand for verifying digital identity during remote onboarding and digital transactions can be seen in our expanding pipeline and recent agreements. While remote working and secure access to corporate networks are not new, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the scope and speed at which society is now moving workers to the virtual office, onboarding customers and consummating transactions remotely, is staggering. This trend coupled with growing interest in “touchless” interaction we believe are significant for our business.  Our products and services are designed to help those organizations adopting remote working and business operations. We believe Ipsidy’s solutions substantially improve how they can confidently grant access only to those who are entitled to such access.

 

The Company’s highlighted activities during the first quarter included the following:

 

  • Signed agreement with Temenos SA (SIX: TEMN), a global banking software provider to over 3000 financial institutions, including 41 of the world’s top 50 banks, to integrate with the Temenos banking software system and become a member of the Temenos MarketPlace which provides financial institutions with easy access to innovative fintech solutions from around the world.
  • Signed reseller and technology agreement with a provider of North American driver’s license authentication and age verification technology.
  • Signed a reseller agreement with the Peruvian subsidiary of a major international conglomerate which provides information technology services in 11 European countries and the Latin America Caribbean region.  It engages in manufacturing, distribution and systems integration for public and private entities in a wide variety of industry verticals, including the finance, telecommunications, media, and security sectors.  The Reseller is offering our identity proofing and authentication services with enhanced citizen identity validation through our integrated connection to the Peruvian National Registry, RENIEC.
  • Phillip L. Kumnick, previously SVP Global Acquirer Processing at Visa, an experienced industry executive, who joined our Board of Directors in December 2019 was appointed Deputy Chairman in January 2020.
  • Philip R. Broenniman also joined our Board of Directors in March 2020, bringing his experience and skills as an investment manager, entrepreneur and financial analyst.

 

Recent developments have only highlighted the expanding need for remote onboarding of users, verifying identity and authenticating transactions everywhere, said Philip Beck, Chairman and CEO of Ipsidy.The Ipsidy team continues to work on closing opportunities in the EMEA, LATAM and US regions, with a focus on the financial, telecommunication and logistics sectors”.

We continue to carefully watch developments related to COVID-19. The extent to which COVID-19 will impact our customers, business, results and financial condition will depend on current and future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time.  Beginning March 2020, the Company’s day-to-day operations have been impacted differently depending on geographic location and services that are being performed. We have seen our business opportunities develop more slowly as business partners and potential customers are dealing with Covid-19 issues and working remotely. These issues have caused delays in decision making and finalization of negotiations and agreements but at the same time we have seen an uptick in interest in our solutions, and we are optimistic that these will start to bear fruit. We appreciate the support of our employees, partners and customers in these difficult times.

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.
