Mr. DePasquale commented, “Over the past two years we have built out an expanded base of solutions and a global footprint that is enabled by our channel alliance partners. Our business model has started to deliver the results we believe make BIO-key an exciting company and investment. The Microcap Conference provides a convenient, cost-effective opportunity for us to begin to reintroduce our company to investors.

Operating Highlights
“Our reported revenues grew 39% to $8.6M in the 12 months ended Sept 30, 2023, enabling a significant increase in gross profit. Importantly, we have recast our business into a largely recurring software as a service (SaaS) and services revenue model, which means that we start each year from an expanded base of contract activity, providing both stability and transparency for our growth and bottom-line performance.

“We have also made good progress in trimming overhead, contributing to reduced losses in recent periods, and we expect to benefit from these efforts as we move forward. From a valuation standpoint, we have approximately 1.937M common stock equivalents outstanding for a market cap of approximately $4M based on Friday’s closing price of $2.03. With an annual revenue run rate of nearly $9M and expected continued growth in revenues and improvement in our bottom-line performance, we are excited to present to prospective investors.”
