DENVER, May 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- authID® [Nasdaq: AUID] a leading provider of secure identity authentication solutions today reported financial and operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2023.

"Balancing uncompromised cybersecurity with an easy user experience, authID’s biometric identity technology delivers the enhanced, non-repudiable authentication needed to protect both workforce and consumer applications against identity fraud and cyberattacks associated with compromised credentials,” said CEO Rhon Daguro.

Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2023:

The following highlights comprise results from continuing operations.

  • Total revenue was $0.04 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023, compared with $0.2 million for the first quarter of 2022. The reduction was primarily attributed to revenue from a legacy authentication product that was discontinued in April 2022.
  • Loss for the three-month period in 2023 was $5.2 million, of which non-cash and one-time severance charges were $3.0 million, compared with a loss of $5.1 million, of which non-cash and one-time severance charges were $2.3 million, for the comparable period in 2022.
  • Net loss per share was $0.21 for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023, compared with net loss per share of $0.22 for the first quarter of 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss improved to $2.2 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023, compared with an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $2.8 million for the first quarter of 2022, primarily due to cost savings from the restructuring plan executed in the first quarter of 2023.
  • In March, the Company secured financing of up to $3.6 million under a facility agreement with Stephen J. Garchik, and completed a $0.9 million initial drawdown before fees, and expenses.

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

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. 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) income tax expense, (4) depreciation and amortization, (5) stock-based compensation expense and (6) severance and 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 net loss – continuing operations, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
