August 09, 2022

Management to Host Conference Call Today at 5:30 p.m. EDT

DENVER, Aug. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- authID (Nasdaq: AUID) a leading provider of secure, mobile, biometric identity authentication solutions, today reported financial and operating results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022.

“This quarter, we gained traction as a noteworthy competitor in the biometric identity marketplace by achieving a perfect score for ISO Level 2 Biometric Presentation Attack Detection and achieving ISO 27001 Certification for Information Security Management Systems,” said Tom Thimot, CEO of authID. “The American Board of Radiology selected authID after a rigorous proof of concept, and we expanded our portfolio of financial services customers. Our focus on enabling companies to defend against password risks and fraudulent account takeovers, in addition to lowering their enterprise support costs are key aspects of our value proposition and the reason we believe we will gain momentum in the months ahead.”

Financial Results for the Three Months and Six Months Ended June 30, 2022
The following highlights comprise results from continuing operations, reflecting the previous announcement to exit the Company’s non-core businesses in South Africa and Colombia. These businesses are now classified in the Company’s financial statements as discontinued operations and assets held for sale.

  • Total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $0.1 million, compared with total revenue of $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, total revenue was $0.2 million, compared with total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2021 of $0.3 million. For both the three and six- month periods, VerifiedTM software license revenue increased sequentially.
  • Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $6.4 million, compared with $3.0 million a year ago. For the six-month period in 2022, net loss was $11.5 million, compared with $5.4 million for the same period last year.
  • Net loss per share for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $0.26, compared with $0.15 for the three months ended June 30, 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, net loss per share was $0.48, compared with $0.27 for the same period last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $3.0 million, compared with $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, Adjusted EBITDA loss was $5.9 million, compared with $2.5 million, for the same period last year.

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

“Despite macroeconomic headwinds that we believe resulted in longer sales cycles than anticipated for Verified Consumer, interest in our Verified Workforce solutions is a bright spot and is growing as organizations accelerate their move to passwordless and Zero Trust authentication,” Thimot added. “Businesses implementing our secure cloud-based biometric identity authentication platform gain the assurance they need that the user behind the device is who they say they are. We expect our continued focus on sales of our workforce cybersecurity products will contribute to our growth and support our target of reaching positive cash flow by the time we enter 2024.”

Highlights for the Second Quarter of 2022 and Subsequent Weeks: 

  • Won the American Board of Radiology, which selected authID to deploy its facial biometric authentication solution following a successful proof-of-concept trial period. authID believes this win highlights the large opportunity to grow market share in the healthcare segment.
  • Signed several new financial services customers including an international bank, a US credit union and a fintech for health care professionals.
  • Added a global online media company and several financial services providers, through US channel partners, to help reduce identity fraud in account recovery and digital customer onboarding.
  • Achieved certification for ISO 27001:2013 for Information Security Management System (ISMS), providing further evidence that authID has met a rigorous framework of security management standards for ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of its biometric authentication platform.
  • Achieved a perfect score for International Standards Organization (ISO) 30107-3 Level 1 and 2 standards for Presentation Attack Detection for the company’s Verified™ platform, preventing more than 700 presentation attacks for a 0% failure rate. This successful independent testing demonstrates the additional fraud protection and security authID can provide to its customers. 
  • Named Annie Pham, formerly of Sonic Wall and Broadcom, as CFO, and appointed former CLEAR executive Joe Trelin to authID’s Board of Directors.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The Company provides certain supplemental financial measures in this statement that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles or “GAAP”. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA, Booked Annual Recurring Revenue (“BARR”) and Annual Recurring Revenue (“ARR”), when viewed with our results calculated in accordance with GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, provide 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. BARR and ARR are presented because management believes they provide leading indicators of the trends that will ultimately impact the Company’s revenues, as calculated in accordance with GAAP. BARR and ARR are performance metrics that should be viewed independently of and not as substitutes for revenue. Management also relies on Adjusted EBITDA, BARR and ARR as primary measures to review and assess the operating performance of our Company and our management and these measures are also used as factors in connection with our executive performance-based compensation. These non-GAAP key business indicators, which include Adjusted EBITDA, BARR and ARR should not be considered replacements for and should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures.

authID defines Adjusted EBITDA as GAAP net loss adjusted to exclude: (1) interest expense, (2) interest income, (3) income tax expense, (4) depreciation and amortization, (5) stock-based compensation expense and (6) certain other items management believes affect the comparability of operating results. Please see Table 1 below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA continuing operations to Loss from continuing operations, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The company defines Booked Annual Recurring Revenue or BARR, as the amount of annual recurring revenue represented by either (a) the minimum amounts payable under contracted orders for our Verified products booked by customers with authID, or (b) the estimated amounts of annual recurring revenue, we believe will be earned under such contracted orders. The cumulative amount of BARR under contracts for Verified products through June 30, 2022 is approximately $161,000.

The company defines Annual Recurring Revenue or ARR, as the amount of recurring revenue derived from sales of our Verified products during the last month of the relevant period (in this case June 2022) as determined in accordance with GAAP, multiplied by 12. The amount of ARR as of June 30, 2022 is approximately $154,000.

BARR may be distinguished from ARR, as BARR does not take into account the time to implement any contract for Verified, nor for any ramp in adoption, or seasonality of usage of the Verified products. BARR and ARR have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation from, or as a substitute for, analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • BARR & ARR should not be considered as predictors of future revenues but only as indicators of the direction in which revenues may be trending. Actual revenue results in the future as determined in accordance with GAAP may be significantly different to the amounts indicated as BARR or ARR at any time.
  • BARR and ARR are to be considered “forward looking statements” and subject to the same risks, as other such statements (see note on “Forward Looking Statements” above)
  • BARR & ARR only include revenues from sale of our Verified products and not other revenues;
  • BARR & ARR do not include amounts we consider as non-recurring revenues (for example one-off implementation fees).
