Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results
Total revenues in the second quarter of 2016 were $1.0 million compared to $1.7 million in the same year-ago quarter. The difference is primarily due to the impact of non-recurring revenue recognized in 2015 upon completion of a major identity management project for Los Angeles World Airports.
Gross margin in the second quarter of 2016 increased significantly to 72.4% compared to 52.9% in the year-ago quarter, primarily due to 2015 containing an uncharacteristically high cost of professional services revenue incurred with the project discussed above.
Net loss in the second quarter of 2016 was $2.1 million or $(0.02) per basic share, compared to $1.8 million or $(0.02) per basic share in the year-ago quarter.
On June 30, 2016, cash and cash equivalents totaled $0.3 million compared to $3.4 million on December 31, 2015. Total debt was $1.5 million compared to no debt at December 31, 2015. Subsequent to the quarter, the company borrowed an additional $0.5 million and now has approximately $3.5 million available on its existing line of credit.
