Ipsidy Announces Results for Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2020

LONG BEACH, N.Y., Nov. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ipsidy Inc. (www.ipsidy.com) [OTCQB:IDTY] a leading provider of secure, mobile biometric identity solutions, including Identity as a Service (IDaaS), today announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Financial Results for the Three Months and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020

  • Total revenue for the three and nine-month periods in 2020 was $0.5 million and $1.6 million respectively compared to $0.6 million and $1.9 million respectively for the three and nine months in 2019. The decrease was principally due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Net loss before taxes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $1.9 million and $9.2 million respectively, compared to a net loss before taxes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 of $2.4 million and $6.8 Million, respectively.
  • The decrease in the net loss for the three-month period reflects lower general and administrative expenses. The increase in the net loss in the nine-month period resulted primarily from non-cash charges relating to the convertible note financing, warrant exercise and impairment charges arising out of the Covid-19 pandemic, offset by lower general and administrative expenses.
  • Basic and diluted net loss per share was $0.00 cents and $0.02 in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, compared to basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.00 cents and $0.01 cents in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2020 was $1.3 million and $4.1 million respectively compared to $1.7 million and $5.2 million respectively in 2019, representing decreases of approximately 22% in each period related to lower overall expenses.
  • Secured over $5 million of additional funding from existing and new investors in October 2020, through the issuance of common stock and warrants.

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

The last quarter has seen continued progress for Ipsidy, said Phillip Kumnick, CEO & Chairman of Ipsidy. “We started to roll out our products to customers, secured new customers in the financial services sector and operated a successful pilot with a major financial institution. We are excited by the prospects for growth into 2021 that appear in our robust new business pipeline, supported by the recent injection of capital from our existing as well as new stockholders. We greatly appreciate their confidence in our ability to execute our plan.  

The following highlights of our activities during the first nine months of 2020 demonstrate execution of our strategy to expand the Ipsidy Partner Network with identity industry and technology professionals, that can effectively deliver our identity services to a range of markets and verticals that are demanding increased security and trust.

  • Launched a strategic partnership with LoginID Inc. to offer new tools in the fight against fraud in online activities. By integrating Ipsidy’s biometric identity verification platform with the LoginID FIDO as a Service platform, both companies will now offer seamless FIDO2 authentication and login services, delivered with enhanced security and the highest level of identity trust.
  • Joined the FIDO Alliance, a cross-industry coalition developing open, interoperable authentication standards that reduce reliance on passwords. Ipsidy’s vision is to establish and bind a rooted, trusted identity to a user. Strong identity verification removes any uncertainty of a user’s identity, thereby enhancing FIDO strong authentication and facilitating FIDO’s mission of eliminating the reliance on passwords.
  • Signed an agreement with an international bank pursuant to our membership in the Temenos Marketplace, to deploy Ipsidy’s biometric identity verification and FIDO compliant strong authentication services for remote digital onboarding, elimination of account passwords, and combating of identity fraud for their international banking customers.
  • Implemented and launched our technology with Intellicheck, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDN), a provider of identification authentication and age verification technology for North America that is being deployed for use with US financial institutions and payment providers.
  • Entered into reseller agreements with IECISA, a Gfi group company, which provides information technology services in 11 European countries and the Latin America Caribbean region, and ATOS Origin FZ LLC (a part of the ATOS Middle East, Turkey & Africa region), a global leader in digital transformation.  These partners are offering our identity verification and authentication services to build trust in today’s online, digital world across these international markets in the telecom, media, utilities, and financial services sectors.
  • Launched our web browser applications, in order to make it easier for more clients to deliver the solution to their users as well as simplify the user experience for both our ProofTM onboarding and account takeover fraud prevention application and our VerifiedTM mobile multi-factor authentication solution.
  • Appointed Phillip L. Kumnick as CEO in May 2020 and he became Chairman of the Board in October 2020. Mr. Kumnick was previously SVP Global Acquirer Processing at Visa and an experienced industry executive and joined our Board of Directors in December 2019.   
  • Appointed Philip R. Broenniman as President & COO in May 2020. Mr. Broenniman is an experienced investment manager with business operating and analytical skills and joined our Board of Directors in March 2020.  

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 access to a broad range of services and networks is not new, the COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating demand for verifying identity seamlessly during remote onboarding as well securing “touchless” interaction.  Our mobile biometric services are designed to help organizations thwart identity fraud and account takeover, by knowing the identity of their users with speed and accuracy. We believe Ipsidy’s solutions substantially enhance how they can confidently onboard new users and authenticate their access and services across the customer engagement.

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.
