Ipsidy Announces Annual Results for 2016 and Business Strategy Update

 

LONG BEACH, New York, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ipsidy Inc. (www.ipsidy.com) (OTC: IDGS), (formerly known as ID Global Solutions Corporation), a provider of secure, biometric identification, identity management and electronic transaction processing services, today announced its results for the year ended December 31, 2016 and provided a business strategy update.

In a world that is increasingly digital and mobile, but also fraught with account breaches and stolen identity information, our vision is to offer solutions that provide pre-transaction verification of identity as well as embed identity verification within every electronic transaction message processed through our platform, or other electronic systems. We believe that it is essential that businesses and consumers know who is on the other side of an electronic transaction and have an audit trail, proving that the identity of the other party was duly verified. Ipsidy is therefore developing solutions intended to provide our customers with the next level of transaction security, control and certainty operating in both physical environments leveraging mobile eco-systems.

We are building upon our existing capabilities in biometric identification and multi-factor identity management solutions to develop an identity transaction platform for our customers. The platform enables mobile users to more easily authenticate their identity to a mobile phone or portable device of their choosing (as opposed to other identity solutions requiring dedicated hardware). Our system allows participants to complete transactions with a digitally signed authentication response, including the underlying transaction data and embedded attributes of the participant's identity, accessible to the business.

Our strategy is to leverage our identity transaction platform to support a variety of vertical markets. These vertical markets include but are not limited to border security, public safety, public transportation, enterprise security, electronic payments transactions and banking.  In addition, our platform is designed to be highly available and language agnostic thereby accessible to customers around the world.  We believe that the various technologies that Ipsidy is developing and has acquired can be combined into a unified offering.

Ipsidy's digital mobile wallet application, or electronic account holder, will contain different services and accounts that enable users to conveniently and securely authenticate and authorize a variety of electronic transactions, using their identity. For example, our closed-loop payment account and digital issuance platform is intended to offer secure and cost-effective methods of conversion of cash and paper to electronic payments. Consumers accessing this system, using their mobile phones, electronic devices, or smart card payment tokens will be able to participate in the digital economy thereby facilitating financial inclusion for the un-banked and under banked population around the globe. Another example is for consumers and employees to use their mobile application to verify identity, in order to access secure digital, or physical environments.

"In an increasingly digital and connected world compromised passwords, security breaches and stolen identities, represent one of the biggest dangers to everybody globally," said Philip Beck, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ipsidy "Our mission is to enable people to authenticate their identity to their own device, before commencing a transaction. We are facilitating the processing of diverse electronic transactions, be they payments, votes, or physical or digital access, embedded with the participant's identity."

Financial Highlights for the Year Ended December 31, 2016

  • Total revenue for the year was $1.9 million, compared to $0.7 million for 2015.
  • Net loss for the year was $9.9 million, compared to $36.7 million for 2015. 
  • Basic and diluted net loss per share for the year was $0.05 cents, compared to $0.21 cents for 2015. 
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss for the year was $4.3 million, compared to $2.4 million in 2015, as the Company invested in people, infrastructure and technology to support future operations.

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

Subsequent Events

  • Announced the appointment of Philip Beck as Chairman of the Board of Directors, Chief Executive and President on January 31, 2017 and the appointment of Stuart Stoller as Chief Financial Officer on January 31, 2017.
  • Converted outstanding debt and accrued interest in the amount of approximately $6.3 million into approximately 84.8 million shares of common stock.
  • Repaid an additional $0.3 million of outstanding debt, canceled 3.6 million warrants and cancelled 2.5 million shares of the Company's common stock.
  • Secured $7.0 million of additional debt and equity financing.

The combination of the above events has helped clean up the Company's balance sheet and provided near-term working capital requirements.

Operational Highlights

Implementation of some or all of the new services referred to is subject to regulatory or other third party approvals.  Actual results may vary materially from the results anticipated by these forward-looking statements as a result of a variety of risk factors, including the risk that implementation, adoption and offering of the service by customers, consumers and others may take longer than anticipated, or may not occur at all; changes in laws, regulations and practices; changes in domestic and international economic and political conditions and others. Additional risks may arise with respect to commencing operations in new countries and regions, of which Ipsidy is not fully aware at this time.

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.
