Intellinetics reported a net income of $842,772 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to a net loss of $646,211 for the same period in 2020. The improved net income was the result of improved operating results, no significant transaction costs in 2021, and a gain on extinguishment of debt of $845,083 from the full forgiveness of our PPP loan. Net income per basic and diluted share was $0.30 and $0.27, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Net loss per basic and diluted share was ($0.54) for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

2021 Other Highlights

  • Signed a new three-year, revenue favorable agreement with our second-largest customer.
  • Expanded K-12 footprint closing 20 new districts in the quarter, taking us to over 230 school districts at the time of this release.

James F. DeSocio, President & CEO of Intellinetics, stated, “Our employees continue to impress me with their focus. We have just celebrated the anniversaries our two 2020 acquisitions and I am pleased to say that the integrations have exceeded our expectations and our timeline. In all my career, these are two of the smoothest acquisitions in which I have been involved. The efforts are reflected in the results of our net income and cash flow, where our ‘net cash provided by operating activities’ improved significantly from Q1 2020 to $326,869 for the quarter. 

“Similarly, we are making investments in our sales and marketing teams to enhance our ability to capture more of the market. We aligned the sales and marketing teams over the past two quarters, and we are cross selling our solutions and applications into our new and existing customer base. This is the synergy we strove for when we acquired the two companies. We’ve launched tactically focused email and telephone campaigns in the first quarter, and I am excited to see what our organization can deliver. All eyes are all forward on growing the business.

“We continue to expect, for this fiscal year, to build on the positive Adjusted EBITDA of 2020 and to drive revenue growth.”

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 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.
