MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Year over year fourth quarter revenues increased 37%
SaaS revenues increased 45%
Intellicheck, Inc. (NYSE American: IDN), an industry leader in identification authentication solutions, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2018.
Revenue for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018 grew 37% to $1,330,393 versus $967,612 in the prior year comparable period. SaaS revenue in the fourth quarter grew 45% and totaled $826,000 versus $569,000 in the prior year comparable period. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues improved to 93.1% for the three months ended December 31, 2018 versus 89.4% in the prior year comparable period.
Intellicheck CEO Bryan Lewis said adoption of the company’s leading identity authentication technology solutions is strong and continues to grow. “We achieved significant milestones in 2018 and I am very pleased with the advances we have made. We are working with four banks and credit card issuers right now in addition to some 16 retailers of all sizes in various stages of product adoption. These merchants represent thousands of retail locations in which Retail ID will be used when fully rolled out. We are also in pilot with our latest new bank for its own credit cards and its retail bank branches. This as we continue to see growing adoption of Age ID at a time when there has been noteworthy market attention to issues surrounding underage access to vaping, cannabis and alcohol products,” said Intellicheck CEO Bryan Lewis.
“Together, we believe that our suite of identity authentication products are demonstrating their value and effectiveness in meeting multiple market needs. As we focus on our strategic objectives for 2019, we anticipate that as long as we continue to execute on the opportunities before us, we believe it will be a banner year,” Lewis concluded.
The net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was ($664,025) or ($0.04) per diluted share versus ($2,910,350) or ($0.19) per diluted share in the comparable prior year period. The prior year loss includes a $500,000 expense attributable to the employment contract of the former CEO. Additionally, during the fourth quarter of 2017 the Company had an impairment charge on intangible assets of $1,375,422 for the year ended December 31, 2017. Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense and certain non-recurring charges that includes the prior year impairment charge) was a loss of ($632,674) for the fourth quarter of 2018 versus a loss of ($1,327,603) in the prior year comparable period. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net loss is provided elsewhere in this release.
Revenue for the full year ended December 31, 2018 was $4,433,454 versus $3,598,296 in the prior year comparable period. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue improved to 91.3% for the year ended December 31, 2018 versus 85.5% in the prior year comparable period.
The net loss for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 was ($3,963,576) or ($0.26) per diluted share versus a net loss of ($6,020,505) or (0.48) per diluted share that includes the $500,000 expense attributable to the employment contract of the former CEO and the $1,375,422 impairment charge. Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense and certain non-recurring charges that includes the prior year impairment charge) improved by $0.2 million to a loss of ($3,661,244) for fiscal 2018 versus a loss of ($3,856,894) for fiscal 2017.

We use Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial performance measurement. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net loss interest and other income, income taxes, impairments of long-lived assets and goodwill, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA is provided to investors to supplement the results of operations reported in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our financial results with other companies that also use Adjusted EBITDA in their communications to investors. By excluding non-cash charges such as impairments of long-lived assets and goodwill, amortization, depreciation and stock-based compensation, as well as non-operating charges for interest and income taxes, investors can evaluate our operations and can compare its results on a more consistent basis to the results of other companies. In addition, adjusted EBITDA is one of the primary measures management uses to monitor and evaluate financial and operating results.
We consider Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of our operational strength and performance of our business and a useful measure of our historical operating trends. However, there are significant limitations to the use of Adjusted EBITDA since it excludes interest income, impairments of long lived assets and goodwill, stock based compensation expense, all of which impact our profitability, as well as depreciation and amortization related to the use of long term assets which benefit multiple periods. We believe that these limitations are compensated by providing Adjusted EBITDA only with GAAP net loss and clearly identifying the difference between the two measures. Consequently, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net loss presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA as defined us may not be comparable with similarly named measures provided by other entities.
A reconciliation of GAAP net loss to Adjusted EBITDA follows:
