authID Inc. Reports Financial and Operating Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2022
Management to Host Conference Call Today at 5:30 p.m. EST
DENVER, Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- authID Inc. (Nasdaq: AUID), a leading provider of secure identity authentication solutions, today reported financial and operating results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2022.
“I am pleased to report that the efforts of our team during the third quarter led to the successful introduction of Human Factor Authentication™ (HFA) and the launch of Verified 3.0, authID’s transformative platform,” said Tom Thimot, CEO of authID. “Potential partners and customers are finding Verified 3.0’s pioneering human-centric authentication solution compelling, as it addresses cyber risks that exploit human error, removes barriers to workforce productivity, and achieves reduced friction for consumers.
“authID has evolved significantly during the year. Today’s Verified 3.0 platform responds to the alarming increase in cybersecurity breaches that exploit compromised credentials and legacy MFA. HFA identifies the human behind the device, and our own FIDO2 certified, passwordless authentication technology delivers a more secure, streamlined authentication solution for our customers. Our strong sales pipeline gives us confidence that our highly differentiated Human Factor Authentication addresses mission-critical security issues.
“Macro-economic headwinds have lengthened sales cycles and impacted our revenues. Looking ahead, with our technology and competitive position strengthened, we believe the Company has sufficient cash and credit facilities to support operations through 2023. During this time, we anticipate sales to ramp to support our revised target of reaching positive cash flow in late 2024,” concluded Thimot.
Financial Results for the Three Months and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022
The following highlights comprise results from continuing operations, and reflect the Company’s previously announced plan to exit non-core businesses in South Africa and Colombia. The Cards Plus business was sold on August 29, 2022, and the exit from the non-core business in Colombia is in process. These businesses are classified in authID’s financial statements as discontinued operations and assets held for sale.

This compared with a net loss of $10.7 million, of which $5.3 million were non-cash charges, for the comparable period in 2021. Expenses for the nine months of 2022 rose from a year ago as the company accelerated its investment in staff, technology, and sales and marketing, starting in the second half of 2021.|
|●||Net loss per share for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $0.25, compared with $0.22 for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Implementation of some or all of the new services referred to is subject to regulatory or other third-party approvals. Actual results may vary materially from the results anticipated by these forward-looking statements as a result of a variety of risk factors, including the risk that implementation, adoption and offering of the service by customers, consumers and others may take longer than anticipated, or may not occur at all; changes in laws, regulations and practices; changes in domestic and international economic and political conditions, the as yet uncertain impact of the war in Ukraine, the Covid-19 pandemic, inflationary pressures, rising energy prices, increases in interest rates, and others. See the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the Fiscal Year ended December 31, 2021 filed at www.sec.gov and other documents filed with the SEC for other risk factors which investors should consider.

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) 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.

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 amount of BARR signed in the third quarter of 2022 was $40,000, bringing the cumulative amount of BARR as of September 30, 2022 to $201,000.
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 September 2022) as determined in accordance with GAAP, multiplied by 12. The amount of ARR as of September 30, 2022 is approximately $132,000.
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).|
