- Our commitment to the Human Services Provider market included launching our Provider Portal in 2018, which provides a cost-effective solution that allows Independent Providers to get up and running within 24 hours. An Independent Provider is a self-employed person who provides services to people with developmental disabilities and who must provide and fund their own technology solutions.
- We launched our partnership with K-12 education partner Software Unlimited Inc. in 2018, which included completing fully integrated document management capabilities within their School Accounting System for K-12 school districts, as well as successfully implementing 11 pre-launch beta customers in December, 2018.
James F. DeSocio, President & CEO of Intellinetics, stated, “The groundwork for our growth is laid with our focus on a core group of customers in the Human Services Provider and K-12 education space. Our unique and differentiated product value proposition, including auditing, compliance and reporting, is compelling. Excitingly, both our cost to acquire customers and effort to implement and on-board new customers is streamlined and accelerated with our focus. This course will provide greater revenue consistency, higher growth, and deliver the best long-term value to shareholders.”
“The improved results in the fourth quarter is a good indicator that our strategy to focus in key markets such as K-12 and align ourselves with strategic solution partners is the right path. At the same time, our clients’ adoption of hosted solutions has accelerated, which impacts our total revenue with lower one-time software sales, but is exactly the conversion that needs to happen to build our recurring revenue base to give us more predictability and reliability in the future. In increasing our SaaS-based revenues we recognize that short-term revenue recognition on subscription services is generally lower than upfront premise license sales and that the new programs will take some months to bear fruit in our top line and this is exactly the track we need to be on to change and enable a breakthrough to the next level. We expect our results to be reflected in improved sales revenue overall, and growing recurring SaaS in particular, in 2019,” DeSocio concluded.

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, and other non-cash expenses such as share-based compensation, note conversion warrant expense and other financing related transaction costs.
