Summary – 2020 Fourth Quarter Results

Revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2020 were $2,695,805 as compared with $624,394 for the same period in 2019. The increase in our professional services and storage and retrieval services revenues is primarily due to the addition of revenues from our subsidiary, Graphic Sciences, Inc., acquired March 2, 2020, and the increase in software maintenance services is primarily due to the addition of revenues from the acquisition of the assets of CEO Imaging Systems, Inc. on April 24, 2020. Intellinetics reported net loss of $1,427,307 and $591,013 for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, representing an increase of $836,294. Despite our improved gross profit and lower interest expense, our net loss increased primarily as 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. The earnout liabilities are valued at $2,440,000 at December 31, 2020, which is 85% of the maximum possible payout, which increased from inception at acquisition to year end due to improved performance of both acquisitions against their threshold targets and a reduction in pandemic uncertainty. Basic and diluted net loss per share for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 was $0.51 and $1.60, respectively. Our adjusted EBITDA improved significantly year over year, by $670,737, which is more indicative of improved operations and demonstrates the value of the 2020 acquisitions.

Summary – 2020 Twelve Month Results

Revenues for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 were $8,253,391 as compared with $2,535,955 for the same period in 2019. The increase in our professional services and storage and retrieval services revenues is primarily due to the addition of revenues from our recently-acquired subsidiary, Graphic Sciences, and the increase in software maintenance services is primarily due to the addition of revenues from the acquisition of the assets of CEO Imaging Systems. We reported a net loss of $2,200,201 and $2,133,281 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, representing an increase in net loss of $69,920. The increase in net loss was the net result of improved operating income contribution, a gain on extinguishment of debt of $287,426, and income tax benefit of $188,300, offset by acquisition-related transaction costs of $636,440 and a change in fair value of earnout liabilities of $1,554,800. Basic and diluted net loss per share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 was $0.91 and $5.76, respectively.

2020 Operational Highlights

  • Positive operating cash flow for three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020.
  • Positive adjusted EBITDA for all four quarters of 2020.
  • Integration of acquisitions of Graphic Sciences (March 2, 2020) and CEO Imaging Systems (April 24, 2020) progressing at or ahead of schedule despite pandemic challenges.
  • Maintaining benefits for employees furloughed from March through June due to state stay-at-home orders, supported by temporary management salary reductions and other cost savings measures.

James F. DeSocio, President & CEO of Intellinetics, stated, “We are very pleased with our results for the fourth quarter of 2020. We have achieved our goal of positive Adjusted EBITDA in fourth quarter, consistent with the third quarter. Our fourth quarter results from operations, excluding the acquisition-related change in fair value of earnout of $1,554,800, was positive as well, also consistent with the third quarter. Our software as a service and overall revenues exceeded the third quarter, which was previously our highest ever. All of this has been made possible by our employees executing on our plan in spite of the continued COVID pandemic.

“Our teams have come together and integrated our 2020 acquisitions at a pace that exceeded my expectations, while at the same time putting protocols in place to maximize the safety of our on-site employees. We are able to focus our energy and creativity on our customers and how our solutions add value. We have maintained old revenue streams and found new ones. This includes channel and direct sales, for example in our K-12 document solutions segment. Combining organic customer growth with those from acquisition, we now count 221 school districts as customers.

“I’m excited for our other target markets as well. We are positioned for 2021 better than ever in our history, and expect to build on the positive Adjusted EBITDA of 2020 while we’re executing on our plan to drive revenue growth in 2021.”

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.
