Summary – 2021 Fourth Quarter Results
Revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2021 were $2,744,038 as compared with $2,695,805 for the same period in 2020. The increase in our software as a service and storage and retrieval more than offset slight reductions in sale of software and professional services. Professional services were impacted by the COVID resurgence in November and December 2021. Intellinetics reported net income of $26,295 and a net loss $1,427,307 for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, representing an improvement of $1,453,602. The net loss in 2020 was primarily a result of a charge taken due to a change in fair value of earnout liabilities of $1,554,800 relating to our 2020 acquisitions. Basic and diluted net income per share for the three months ended December 31, 2021 was $0.01. Basic and diluted net loss per share for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was $0.51. Our adjusted EBITDA improved year over year by $867,125, which was driven by improved operations and demonstrates the value of the 2020 acquisitions.

Summary – 2021 Twelve Month Results
Revenues for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 were $11,460,265 as compared with $8,253,391 for the same period in 2020. The increase in our professional services and storage and retrieval revenues is primarily due to the inclusion of a full twelve months of revenues from our Graphic Sciences, Inc. subsidiary acquired in 2020, compared to the same period in 2020 that only included approximately ten months of revenues from that business. The year-over-year increase is amplified by the weak second quarter of 2020, due to the stay-at-home orders and resulting curtailment of revenue in that period, as well as the continued strong growth of our software as a sales revenues. We reported a net income of $1,357,951 and a net loss of $2,200,201 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, representing an improvement of $3,558,152. The improved net income was the result of improved operating results, no significant transaction costs in 2021, a gain on extinguishment of debt of $845,083 from the full forgiveness of our PPP loan, and change in fair value of earnout of $141,414 in 2021 compared to $1,554,800 in 2020.

2021 Operational Highlights

  • Positive operating cash flow of $1,389,996 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.
  • Positive net income and positive adjusted EBITDA for all four quarters of 2021.
  • Integrations of acquisitions of Graphic Sciences (March 2, 2020) and CEO Imaging Systems (April 24, 2020) substantially complete despite pandemic challenges.
  • Invested in new warehouse to support growth of our storage and retrieval services, which increases box storage capacity more than 120%, and completed consolidation of warehouses from four to two for more logistics efficiency.
  • Expanded K-12 footprint, bringing us to over 250 school districts at the time of this release.

James F. DeSocio, President & CEO of Intellinetics, stated, “We achieved our goal of improved revenue numbers from Q4 of 2020 to Q4 of 2021, including 31% SAAS revenue growth, despite the renewed Omicron headwinds we faced in the fourth quarter of 2021. For the eighth straight quarter we showed positive adjusted EBITDA and have surpassed $300,000 of positive Adjusted EBITDA for the sixth straight quarter. For fiscal year 2021 we not only beat our 2021 revenue goals including software as a service and all recurring revenue goals, we have also surpassed our 2020 revenue numbers by $3.2 million. This has been a great year for Intellinetics despite the many challenges we have faced with COVID and the onset of inflationary pressures.

“Our teams continue to perform at a high level. In 2021, we invested in our new records center and our sales and marketing teams. Our development team continues to deliver industry and customer requested enhancements. We closed 342 orders in 2021, 31% of which were new customer logos for close to $5.9 million in order value, most of which will be recognized over the next one to two years. Our success validates our strategy of both winning new logos and continuing to cross sell to our existing customer base.

“I’m excited for all our target markets as well. We are positioned for 2022 better than ever in our history, and expect to build on the positive Adjusted EBITDA of 2021 while we’re executing on our plan to drive revenue growth in 2022.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measure
Intellinetics uses non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance that is 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 Income (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, any income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation, note conversion and note or equity offer warrant or stock expense, gain or loss on debt extinguishment, change in fair value of contingent consideration, and significant transaction costs.
