COLUMBUS, OH – (March 28, 2016) – Intellinetics, Inc. (OTCQB: INLX), an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software company focused on cloud-based document solutions for the Small to Medium Business (SMB) market, announced financial results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015.
Year End Key Metrics Trending Positively
- Revenue increased 57%
- Improving Adjusted EBITDA
Summary – Twelve Month Results
Revenues for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015 were $2,336,991, as compared with $1,485,873 for the same period in 2014, an increase of $851,118, or 57%. While all revenue channels posted gains, professional services and sales of software led the way with approximately 167% increases. Overall gross margins were 79% and 80% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
Intellinetics reported a net loss of $3,921,428 and $1,648,641 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, representing an increase in net loss of $2,272,787, or 138%. However, Adjusted EBITDA loss for year was $481,454, compared with a loss of $1,173,573 for last year, a 59% improvement. The total increase in net loss was attributable to the increase in non-cash and mostly non-recurring expenses, including stock option expense, non-cash interest expense and notes payable conversion underwriting expense associated with the conversion of convertible notes to equity, effected in December, offset by an increase in gross profit for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015.
Matthew L. Chretien, President and CEO of Intellinetics, stated, “This has been a very good year for the Company for four significant reasons: We
- Continued to grow all aspects of our business,
- Are working on a number of projects which indicate a very strong future for Intellinetics,
- Have eliminated a majority of our debt, which was converted into equity, and also eliminated the accompanying interest costs, and
- Raised additional capital and are funded to accelerate our already impressive rate of growth.
“Our partners have honed their ability to sell IntelliCloud-based software and services both stand-alone, and bundled with other core offerings. Channel interest in cloud-based document solutions to increase revenue, margins and value to the customer continues to grow and is reflected in the 48% increase in SaaS based contributions. I have never been more confident in our ability to achieve our goals.”
Chretien continued, “The recent reduction of debt and our capital raise has strengthened our balance sheet and allowed us to add three additional, highly qualified, sales reps as part of our growth acceleration plan. Modest revenue increases will have a meaningful impact to our bottom line.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measure
Intellinetics uses non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP).
A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of income, balance sheet or statement of cash flows of a company. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or a measure of our liquidity. Intellinetics urges investors to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to the comparable GAAP Net Loss, which is included in this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Intellinetics’ financial performance.
We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure and is used by us to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period-to-period and to provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than measures under GAAP can provide alone. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, and other non-cash expenses such as share-based compensation, note conversion warrant expense and other financing related transaction costs.
