Helix TCS Announces Third Quarter Results, Reports 80% Increase in Revenue, 39% Improvement in Cash Flow from Operations

Denver, CO, Nov. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Helix TCS, Inc. (OTCQB:HLIX) (the “Company”) today reported its results for the third quarter of 2019. The Company will be hosting an earnings call today, November 14, 2019, at 4:30pm Eastern time. Call info can be found at the bottom of this release.

“Q3 has seen the company continue to meet its goals on key operational initiatives and our overarching strategy.  Strategic acquisitions, a strong customer focus, and targeted internal improvements continue to drive growth and shareholder value,” said Zachary L. Venegas, Helix TCS Executive Chairman and CEO.  “While we firmly believe that the market does not view Helix TCS correctly, the company itself is stronger than ever. We clearly anticipated the tightening in capital markets, and took appropriate steps months in advance to prepare for it, and we are on track in improving our cash from operations, cutting costs, and closing in on profitability even as we continue to grow our market share and add new product and service lines.  Doing this all simultaneously while requiring minimal capital is solid proof of the operational results that we deliver for investors.” 

Highlights of the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 include:

  • Q3 2019 revenue of $3.74MM, an increase of 20% compared to the same quarter YoY
  • Gross profit for the quarter was $1.5 million, a 41% blended gross margin; software gross margin was 62+%
  • In the first 9 months of 2019, the Company generated revenues of $11MM, an increase of 80% from the same period in 2018
  • Cash flows from operations improved in Q3 by 39%, compared to Q3 2018
  • BioTrackTHC added 306 new licenses, a 50% increase in new users from Q2
  • BioTrack Recurring Commercial Revenues increased 10% from Q2 to Q3 2019 
  • BioTrack commercial bookings increased 27% to $489K 
  • Closed acquisition of Amercanex, the world’s only fully compliant online Cannabis and Hemp wholesale marketplace
  • Remained dominant in Cannabis POS Market Share

The 3rd quarter saw accelerated growth for the BioTrack business line driven by strong sales in emerging markets as well as expanding existing contracts.  The SaaS platform continues to grow, and expansion by major clients is creating a more stable user base across the country. This trend helped reduce churn to <2% in Q3.  We also made significant progress on multiple development initiatives, with next generation products expected to begin generating revenue in Q4.
