LONG BEACH, N.Y., August 7, 2018 -- 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 June 30, 2018 and that it has received subscriptions for common stock in an equity fund raising of approximately $9.1 million.
Financial Highlights for the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2018
● Total revenue for the three and six-month periods was $1.8 million and $2.4 million respectively compared to $0.6 million and $1.1 million respectively for the three and six months in 2017.
The increase in revenue for the period reflected the successful completion of the supply of SearchTM, our Automated Fingerprint Identification System and related services to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (“ZEC”).
● Net loss for the three and six months was $2.5 million and $5.2 million respectively compared to a net loss of $2.8 million and $12.5 million respectively for the three and six 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 six months in 2018 was $0.01 and $0.01 cents respectively compared to basic net loss per share of $0.01 and $0.04 cents respectively for the three and six months in 2017.
● Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three and six months in 2018 was $1.6 million and $3.3 million respectively compared to $1.4 million and $3.0 million respectively in 2017. Adjusted EBITDA loss for the six-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 SearchTM system to ZEC.
● As of August 6, 2018, the Company has received subscriptions, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $9.1 million, by the issuance of approximately 60.4 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.
● On August 6, 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.

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 (5) derivative income (expense) and (6) 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.
