Financial Results for the Three Months and Six Months Ended June 30, 2020

  • Total revenue for the three and six-month periods in 2020 was $0.3 million and $1.1 million respectively compared to $0.6 million and $1.4 million respectively for the three and six months in 2019. The decrease was principally due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Net loss before taxes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 was $3.5 million and $7.3 million respectively, compared to a net loss before taxes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 of $2.2 million and $4.4 Million, respectively. 
  • The increase resulted primarily from charges relating to the non-cash convertible note financing and warrant exercise “holiday”, impairment charges arising out of the Covid-19 pandemic, severance costs and stock compensation costs for new executives.
  • Basic and diluted net loss per share was 0.01 cents in each of the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2020 compared to basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.00 cents and 0.01 cents in the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2020 was $1.4 million and $2.7 million respectively compared to $1.5 million and $3.1 million respectively in 2019, decreases of 7% and 12% respectively.

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

The last three months have seen positive developments for Ipsidy, said Phillip Kumnick, CEO & Deputy Chairman of Ipsidy. “We strengthened the Ipsidy team, secured contracts with leading, global banking platforms and technology resellers that broaden our sales and market reach and delivered solution enhancements to provide security and trusted identity via a quick web browser session and to support the growing trends for remote onboarding of customers and ‘touchless’ commerce. Our relaunch in June and outreach to the industry have been well received and although there is much work to be done, we look forward to reporting on further progress in the coming months.” 

The following highlights of our activities during the first half 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.

  • Signed a reseller and technology agreement with Intellicheck, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDN), a provider of identification authentication and age verification technology for North America.
  • Entered an 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.
  • Executed a reseller agreement with IECISA, a Gfi group company, which provides information technology services in 11 European countries and the Latin America Caribbean region. IECISA is a technology consultant specialized in delivering digital solutions and value-added services to digitally transform companies and public entities through technological innovation, operating 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.
  • Selected by PharmacyID to deliver a high assurance identity verification solution in Australia. PharmacyID, which operates a platform offering a trusted in-person identity verification service through a network of over 2,500 pharmacies, signed a partnership agreement to integrate with the Ipsidy platform to create a state of the art mobile, facial biometric identity verification solution for the Australian market.
  • Signed a technology reseller agreement with ATOS Origin FZ LLC (a part of the ATOS Middle East, Turkey & Africa region), a global leader in digital transformation. ATOS will offer Ipsidy’s innovative identity solutions to address the demand in the Middle East for services needed to build trust in today’s online, digital world across major customers in the telecom, media, utilities, financial services and public sector markets.
  • 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 Proof™ our remote onboarding and account takeover fraud prevention solution and Verified™ our biometric multi-factor authentication solution.
  • Appointed Phillip L. Kumnick as CEO in May 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 throughout 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.
