Summary – 2020 First Quarter Results
Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were $1,213,664 as compared with $515,385 for the same period in 2019. The increase in our professional services revenues is primarily due to the addition of one month’s revenues from our recently acquired subsidiary, Graphic Sciences, Inc. Intellinetics reported a net loss of $646,211 and $669,853 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, representing a decrease in net loss of $23,642. The decreased net loss was primarily the result of significant transaction costs of $460,767 being more than offset by gain on extinguishment of debt of $287,426, income tax benefit of $188,300, and net income contribution from Graphic Sciences. Net loss per share for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 was ($0.54) and ($1.81), respectively.
- Continued growth in our core software business, which was ahead of expectation before the pandemic slowed business at the end of the quarter.
- Acquisition of Graphic Sciences on March 2, 2020. Graphic Sciences complements Intellinetics’ document management products and services to highly regulated, risk- and compliance-intensive markets. The IntelliCloud™ solution suite can now be expanded to include Graphic Sciences’ document scanning and microfilm services while Graphic Science customers benefit from the option to gain anywhere, anytime access to their digitized documents via the IntelliCloud Document Management Platform.
- Acquisition of CEO Imaging Systems, Inc. on April 24, 2020. CEO Imaging is an Enterprise Content Management Solution with over 150 customers, of which about 120 are K-12 school districts. The CEO Image Executive™ document management system integrates with leading scanning hardware and business applications to provide a comprehensive solution that solves specific content problems clients face. The combined reputation of Intellinetics and CEO Imaging Systems for industry knowledge and responsive in-house technical support is expected to measurably enhance customer satisfaction and customer loyalty. Intellinetics already serves over 50 K-12 school districts as customers.
James F. DeSocio, President & CEO of Intellinetics, stated, “I am pleased that our focused market strategy has resulted in an increase in year over year revenues in our Document Management segment. Our revenue mix has continued to shift away from third party solution re-sellers to a direct selling approach resulting in stronger margins and a better customer retention rate. Our current backlog of orders is robust, which reflects, among other things, our steady commitment to the new solution offering that we launched in the second half of last year, Document Scanning Service (“DSS”), a component of our Document Conversion segment. DSS has been developed in partnership with one of our Human Service Provider customers, ARC Industries. The unique partnership program enables us to train people with developmental disabilities.
Based on the experience and early success of our DSS offering, we felt confident in our acquisition of Graphic Sciences, a market leader in DSS services and solutions in the Michigan market. The combination of Intellinetics’ Document Management Platform and Graphic Sciences’ DSS solutions is a perfect match for cross-selling our services and solutions. We currently have a three-month backlog of DSS services which will help us tremendously when the doors to commerce reopen in Michigan.
I am further optimistic about our recent acquisition of the assets of CEO Imaging Systems, Inc., based in Plymouth, Michigan. This will provide the combined Intellinetics company with a strong base of K-12 customers to continue to grow that vertical market. Again, the cross-selling opportunities with our complimentary solutions between Intellinetics and CEO Imaging, and the ability to sell our DSS services to the existing CEO Imaging customer base, open new doors for us.
While COVID-19 is currently limiting our combined operations, we’re well underway with integration efforts and making good progress. Further, we have a substantial backlog of Document Conversion services which will carry us for a number of months as soon as our full Document Conversion staff is permitted to return to work. We intend to bring back 100% of our Michigan employees to their full normal working hours as soon as we can while complying with our applicable state laws and executive orders. We have made adjustments in our facilities to enhance the safety of our team and are prepared to move forward, with eyes on future 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, and gain or loss on debt extinguishment.
